- This exercise is a good beginning exercise to promote better posture and strength between the shoulder blades.
- Start with your arms at your sides, pull your shoulders back and squeeze the shoulder blades together. Think of pinching a pencil between the shoulder blades.
- Hold the contraction for 1-2 seconds then relax.
- Note: Keep the shoulders down during the whole exercise and prevent shrugging upward.
