Resisted Shoulder Retraction

  • Secure a piece of elastic resistance tubing to a doorframe.
  • Sit or stand with your elbows tucked into your sides bent at 90 degrees, forearms pointing forward.
  • Grasp the resistance band and pull it towards you by focusing on pinching your shoulder blades together.
  • Return to the start position and repeat three sets of 10 repetitions daily or as directed.

*This exercise may also be performed using a cable row machine or by looping a piece of elastic resistance band over your feet while sitting on the floor with your legs directly in front of you.
