Work your upper back!!
These muscles are way more important than showing off for Instagram😘
The muscles of the upper back include the Trapezius, Rotator Cuff(technically 4 muscles here) and Posterior Deltoid.
All of these muscles work together to promote good posture and stabilize the shoulder joint during exercises like the bench press! Or for my athletes, specifically those who throw, strengthening these can prevent a rotator cuff tear and shoulder impingement. Stable = Safe
Add these exercises into your routine to target these muscles and stand up straight!
- Deadlifts/Rack Pulls for total back development - Face Pulls*, Reverse Flyes, Overhead Plate Raises*, Shrugs, Farmer's Carries and I-Y-W Raises are what I recommend.
* these 2 exercises can be done every training session, ideally 3 sets of 10-12. Most training does not have enough pulling, this can help even it out. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
