Exercise of the Week: Rhomboid and Scapula Pulls

photo7This week we focus on rhomboid and scapular stabilization and strength. While great for swimmers and runners, too, this is especially beneficial for cyclists who spend the majority of their time hunched forward. Holding a simple exercise band at shoulder width and height, slowly draw your arms back, lifting the chest and squeezing between the shoulder blades. Then return to start. Repeat at least 20-30 times, until the burn is unimaginable. This exercise requires lots of reps as it is for muscular endurance.
