Who loves arm exercises but hates the pain after? Definitely us. Especially at that last set where your arms start to shake and your shoulder gets all sore, but you have no choice but to finish it off right.
Angelina shares the scapular push ups exercise which is great way to arm up for all those arm exercises. This exercise particularly strengthens your muscles around the shoulder blades which eventually improves shoulder stability and mobility.
Did you know? Proper scapula (aka shoulder) function impacts almost every upper-body movement you perform, whether in the weight room or in your sport, such as pole. It also helps protect against neck pain and helps you hold good posture.
What's in it for you:
• Strengthens muscles around shoulder blades
• Improved shoulder mobility and stability
Start in a table top position with your shoulders directly over wrists. Make sure to keep the spine in a neutral position and the core engaged.
Without bending your elbows, squeeze shoulder blades together and push chest out.
Then push floor away from the you to create "hollow" chest.
Inhale - retract chest
Exhale - protract chest
Aim for 3 sets of 10 reps
