Purpose: This is a great postural exercise and can also be used for shoulder and neck rehabilitation, while retraining scapular movement.
Instruction: Stand against the wall with your head, shoulders, elbows, wrists and hands all against the wall. For added difficulty press your lower back against the wall. Keeping elbows, wrists, hands and shoulders against the wall, slide your elbows down and back up 10 times.
Common Errors: If your elbows, wrists, shoulders or head come off the wall at any point during this exercise. This is indicative of tight rotator cuff, chest muscles or poor scapulo-thoracic rhythm.
