Banded Scapular Activation – Diagonal Plane

Recently osteopaths Heath, Cathryn and Tim attended Michael Crichton 1 day course on program design and periodization.  Michael also took us through a range of movement preparation exercises that he commonly prescribes for his rehab/prehab clients.  In the video below you will see the banded diagonal scapular activation exercise.  This is a great variation on the standard banded scapular activation technique that focuses on engaging the muscles involved with scapular retraction and stability.
