Video Of The Month

If you sit at a desk all day, chances are that computer screen in front of you is drawing you in. When we sit staring at the screen, our shoulders tend to round and this creates an imbalance between the muscles in our back (lower traps, rhomboids) and the muscles in the front (pecs) This imbalance (along with any imbalance really) can cause a decrease in your performance as well as pain and dysfunction above and below the shoulder. 

Overuse is a common cause of muscle imbalances. A good example would be olympic swimmers. They nature of the movement required for their sport means they use their chest mucles a lot. Next time you are watching a swimming meet, take notice of the swimmers when they step up for the start of the event. Notice any rounding of the shoulders?

Here is a great video demonstration of an exercise to include in your routine that can help strengthen the muscles in your back that can help counteract the rounding of the shoulders. It would be good to pair this exercise with a stretching routine for the chest.

 

Corrective exercise (like the back sequence seen in the video) can correct muscular imbalances and improve posture and performance. Low back pain, patellar tendonitis and even plantar fasciitis can be attributed to muscle imbalances.
