Rounded Shoulders are the Trend

Posted By Student Intern Jayson Yaplee

Does the pink profile look familiar?  With more people spending countless hours in front of a computer, the number of people sporting the rounded shoulder look is becoming more common.  If pink is not your goal and blue is the true you, here are a couple tips:

 

Perform door stretches.  To get a deeper stretch imitate the picture above but instead lunge forward with the leg farthest from the wall and turn your body away from the wall.  Hold these stretches for 10-20 seconds and repeat.

 

Strengthen your rhomboids.  With your back straight squeeze your shoulder blades together and hold for 5-10 seconds and repeat.  You can also use resistance bands to perform rows. Try doing 2 sets of 10 to start.  If you can do more great!

    I do those exercises with my trainer but I need to do them more. I am fighting round shoulders because of my many years of computer use. I have seen some real changes.
