lampwick Posted June 11, 2004 Report Share Posted June 11, 2004 For a while, I was trying to create a flat upper back by holding my shoulders back and down. I can do this, but it was creating too much of a strain in an already tense upper body. I've now been instructed to simply hold my shoulders straight down and concentrate more on keeping my chest and eyes projecting outward (basically--not collapsing the chest) while keeping the abdominals nice and held inward. I have "wings" though. Is this considered an aesthetically/technically bad? I'm doing some girl pushups on my knees and keeping my elbows pointed back to hopefully strengthen some muscles under the scapulae . Is there anything else I can do with a theraband? I'd like to not have wings. I don't think it looks so good. Quote Link to comment
