Rounded shoulder can be caused by one of 3 problems, or a combination of all 3.
- Tight Pectoralis Muscles
- Weak Scapula Retractors (Rhomboids and middle trapezius)
- Thoracic kyphosis (rounding and stiffness of the thoracic spinal joints
These 3 exercises are designed to address the first 2 problems related to the scapula (shoulder blade).
