Scaption for Functional and Stronger Shoulders

Did you know that the absence of working out consistently may result in injuries from everyday life activities such as sitting? This is because some muscles can become overactive due to a lack of exercise.

Here is one quick exercise that can functionally and aesthetically engage your shoulders to become stronger.  This is perfect for those with hectic lifestyles who are short on time to exercise.

Scaption is an excellent movement that employs your scapula and rhomboids that will functionally strengthen your rotator cuff specifically the supraspinatus. Scaption also creates shoulder mobility that will fortify your joints and tendons. By performing scaption, over time, you will become stronger in other pressing or lateral movements such as the bench press or front shoulder raise. Since scaption engages the scapula and rhomboids, if you have imperfect posture, this exercise can help develop appropriate strength in your middle back, yielding postural improvements and creating scapula retraction.
