Scapular stability with thoracic rotation

Exercise of the week!

This is a good exercise because you can progress or regress it depending on the athlete or how it feels while performing.
Start in a quadruped position, perpendicular to the band attachment site. With your support base arm (left in video) try and push tall through the floor to prevent scapular winging. To make it a little harder for yourself try and keep a soft bend in the elbow. With the opposite arm, pull the band (right in video). Then keeping the arm with the band in place, rotate on your base arm. Focus on rotating through the scapula, not by pulling on the band with the opposite hand.
The pulling and pushing of the arms helps with this movement which also contributes to the thoracic rotation.
