This corrective exercise strengthens the muscles that stabilize your shoulder blade.

Follow these steps:

Step 1:  Hold a light weight in each hand, hanging at your sides.  Your thumbs should be pointing up.

Step 2:  Begin the movement raising your arms out in front of you, about 30 degrees off center.  Your arms should be fully extended as you perform the movement.

Step 3: Continue until your arms are parallel to the ground, then return to the starting position.  Start by doing 2 sets of 12.
