Scapular Protraction Stretch

Improve your rear delt function!


  • Improve Scapular Function
  • Increase Shoulder Range of Motion


  1. Scapular Protraction (Rhomboids, Trapezius)
  • Grab a band, or stable object, anchored at shoulder height with one hand.
  • Turn inward so that your arm begins to wrap around your body and walk sideways away from the place of pull until your scapula begins to be pulled forward.
  • Move through different ranges while maintaining tension to find different tight spots.
  • To increase the stretch, move farther away from the anchor point or reach your opposite hand across the front side of your body.
