If you need a quick boost, this 15-minute bodyweight workout will help strengthen muscles that retract (move the shoulder blades together) the shoulder blades and help keep an upright posture. These include the rhomboids, middle trapezius, and other associated shoulder muscles. A Yoga strap and small ball will be used to create these isometric positions. There are seated and supine positions done in this workout.
Weakness in these areas can affect our respiration, our shoulder mobility, our posture, and overall core strength. This routine can be done anywhere, anytime. It can reduce fatigue after exercise, as a prevention from injury, and to help manage your muscle strength. This can also be used as a warm-up or as a workout in itself. Isometrics are the precursor to adding any load and challenge to our body.
