This tip is great for chin-ups, but it’s more than that. By sliding your shoulder blades down and back before an exercise — like you’re tucking them into your back pockets — can improve your results and protect from injury. It helps activate your lats (back muscles) for pulling exercises, work your pecs (chest muscles) more completely in pushing exercises, keeps your torso (upper body) up during a squat and can reduce painful impingement on your rotator cuff (shoulder muscles) during biceps curls.

THIS TIP IS GREAT FOR ANY & ALL EXERCISES, ESPECIALLY WHEN STRENGTHENING THE UPPER BODY!

New time you’re working out, try it.  Tuck your shoulders down and back before initiating the exercise.  Get used to this position as being the starting point and you’ll notice better form, better strength and decreased injury.
