Our shoulders were built to move, but in order for them to functional properly we need good clean shoulder blade movement! A lot of us tend to focus on lift and pull movements of our shoulder, but forget about the push movement which our “scapula” do. This movement is important as it not only strengthens our shoulder but also gives it the stability it needs so that it can do all the awesome things you want it to. Try out this exercise to get your shoulder moving and shaking better!

Exercise

Begin on your hands and knees, and line up in a push-up position – with your elbows locked and low back neutral. Keeping your core engaged, squeeze your bum and focus on maintaining a neutral spine. Now, push your shoulder blades away from each other spreading them apart. Slowly bring your shoulder blades back together and repeat.

Time

Do this for 6-8 reps and repeat 3 times (as tolerable).
