If you spend your work hours having a bad posture habits such as rounded back, shoulders falling forward or having your head hanging to the front - try this exercise. It will definitely help fixing 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 which helps you to come up or place your feet on something stable (box/chair/bench) to be able 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.
