After all, it is Bench Press day…

PREPARATION:

  • Row 30 calories
  • Airdyne 20 calories
  • 10 reps of Reverse Snow Angels (note the use of the towel)

Episode 196: "Reverse Snow Angels" Here is a GREAT exercise for improving strength and control of your scapular stabilizing muscles. This will primarily target the scapular retractors, which are a key component in maintaining good posture. To perform this exercise: – Lay prone and make sure to keep your head on a smooth surface such as a towel. – Bring your arms completely overhead, then control the movement slowly down towards your hip and back up. You should be able to perform this exercise for 15 repetitions WITHOUT failure before progressing this exercise with an external load. In the second half of this video, I show this exercise with an external load of 5 lb weights. Note 1 – The most common compensation seen is hyperextension of the lumbar spine when the arms are overhead, resulting in the head leaving the floor. A cue I like to use to avoid this is to engage the core, which will allow you to maintain a neutral lumbar spine. Note 2 – Avoid shrugging with your upper trap as you elevate your arms overhead to allow all your upward rotators to work in synergy, including the middle and lower traps as well as the serratus anterior.
