Shoulder Blade Squeeze
This is a beginner exercise to strengthen the muscles involved in shoulder retraction, pulling your shoulder blades together towards your spine. These muscles play a role in our posture and as well are involved in pulling movements.
Sitting or standing in a comfortable position pull your shoulders back, squeezing your shoulder blades together. Hold the squeezed position for a short pause then return to the start position.
