    Hey, i'm wondering which exercises pull your shoulders back because after a brief encounter with a physio as when i do the movement of lateral raises and other movements such as shoulder push i can feel like tension in my "trap" the only way i can descriobe is like if you run your hand along a metal security fence, it has that sort of feel of click click click.

    she said my shoulders need to be pulled back more, and she could get my hand under my shoulder blades. Unfortunatelty i didn't have enough time to ask her what exercises. So which exercises can i do?

    Thanks

    Correct your sitting posture is one thing you can do to sort it out and i remember my physio saying to me - if i did weight lifting (which i don't) try not to work your chest as much more the back

    Shrug for traps.. I'm not sure exactly what you're asking though.

    If your backs too weak compared with your chest do pullups, deadlifts, bent-over rows and shrugs.
