It's no secret that sitting wreaks havoc on our bodies - and it's definitely no secret that most of us spend the majority of our day sitting with horrible posture! Hip and knee flexion, glenohumeral internal rotation, thoracic flexion, and scapular protraction. Translated = that horrible position that you are sitting in now. This exercise will get you out of the chair, and strengthen all those muscles on your backside that see way too little action.
Specifically, the prime movers you use to bring you into scapular retraction, thoracic extension, and glenohumeral extension/external rotation are your middle trapezii, rhomboids, posterior deltoids, latissimus dorsi, infraspinati, teres minors and paraspinals.
The beautiful thing about training with the MostFit™ Suspension Strap is that every exercise will have you working your core and all your stabilizer muscles at the same time. This ramps up the nervous system, activating more muscle, which will make your workouts much more effective and efficient.
