Shoulder Injuries – Scapula Strengthening Row Level 1

Whether having a minor shoulder injury or something more severe this exercise is a great way to isolate the rhomboid scapular muscles to help you with your rehab.

Using a looped band, make sure it’s anchored to a sturdy object. Then wrap the band around yourself, the band should be around your shoulder blades and in line with the back of your shoulder and armpit. Ensure you have your arms on the inside of the band.

With your knees slightly bent, begin to row or pull your shoulders and elbows back. Focus on pulling your shoulders and shoulder blades back against the resistance of the band. Repeat this for 10 repetitions doing 3 sets daily.
