Want to get rid of upper back muscle strain? Want to strengthen your upper back muscles quickly and easily?
Just squeeze your shoulder blades together. S Q U E E Z E them to your spine and hold them there for a few seconds. Repeat 3 times.
Do this only 3 times a day for the first few days or your muscles will ache from overwork. You have to adapt to new movements gradually. After a few days, you can start increasing the amount of shoulder blade squeezes by a couple a day.
You can do this when you are sitting, standing or laying in bed on your back. Or all three ways! 🙂
Please watch the positioning of your head when you do this move. The reason I like doing this on a flat surface is because your head is in a fairly neutral muscular position.
When you are standing or sitting, some people want to move their head forward. That strains neck and upper back muscles.
Squeezing your shoulder blades toward your spine will strengthen all of the muscles in that area of your back and will help improve your posture and your comfort, too.
