Exercises for Upper Cross Syndrome

To appropriately address the muscular imbalances of upper cross syndrome, one must do more than simply stretch tight muscles regularly. It is imperative to also exercise the inhibited muscles, especially the rhomboids as demonstrated in the video. One can also exercise the deep neck flexors while doing standing rows. This is accomplished by retracting the chin into the Adam’s Apple with each standing row repetition. This addresses the forward head and shoulder posture commonly seen in upper cross syndrome.
