Scapula pullups for office workers

Updated: Jan 17, 2021

If you spend your work hours having a bad posture habit such as rounded back, shoulders falling forward or having your head hanging to the front - try this exercise. It will definitely help to fix the issue.

Hanging on a bar is not only healthy for your spine but also helps to maintain a proper range of motion in your shoulders.

➡️ Hang on a bar. Your shoulder blades will get pulled up, so the goal is to bring them down and even a bit towards each other.

➡️ Remember to control your shoulder blades in all of those positions.

➡️ If you already have pain in your shoulders or your grip is not strong enough to maintain this position, try an easier version. You can use a power band that helps you come up or place your feet on something stable (box/chair/bench) to pull yourself up and down.

The stronger 💪 your shoulder blades and the better control you have over them, the less likely you will injure yourself during dynamic, fast pulling movements.
