Front plate raise shoulders
🔹You can also use dumbbells, barbells, cables or exercise bands to perform this movement.
🔹Grab a weight plate at the 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock position. Raise it until you can see through the hole, pause one second, and lower it under control. Keep the body rigid and avoid using body English.
🔹Doing this single movement will not only shape your front delt to superior size but also give you the strength needed for all other pressing movements.

Because the #Rhomboids, and Middle and Lower #Trapezius muscles are stretched and weak, the work of anchoring the shoulder blades to the spinal column passes to the Levator Scapula and Upper Trapezius, both of which can't avoid their anatomical role of suspending the #shoulder blades from the neck/cervical spine.

But these two #muscles aren't adequate for the extra load* and in response they become hyperactive and remain tight, always trying to pull the shoulders up toward the ears. Use of the arms in weight bearing activity such as in lifting or pulling adds to the load, and may cause the upper traps and levator scapula to #spasm.
Focal points of hyperactivity are felt as tender knots at the levator scapulas' points of attachment to the shoulder blade (red X in illustration above and at left). Unfortunately in slouched #posture, the levator scapula and the upper trapezius are also stretched—their points of attachment on the shoulder blade having moved further away. Being simultaneously stretched and "shouldering" more of the work of stabilizing the shoulder blades, the upper traps and levator are in a bind—not able to strengthen adequately because they're stretched and yet also overworked.
Even small #muscle strains have difficulty healing and occur more often, becoming #chronic. And chronic muscle damage becomes chronic inflammation and #chronicpain.
Inflammation at origin points of the levator scapula and upper trapezius on the cervical spine and back of the head cause side and back neck soreness/pain, and headaches (Cervicogenic/occipital headaches). Chronic soreness/pain of the upper back and fleshy triangle between the neck and shoulder (body of the upper trapezius) is common.

I suggest starting with the #symptoms to reduce #pain and release trigger points as shown on the image then move on to correcting the postural imbalances at the pelvis and rib cage to reduce the forward head position and change the workload on the neck muscles.

⚫️⏹⏹⏹ Strengthen Mid-Trapezius & Rear Deltoid ⏹⏹⏹⚫️
🔴
Weak Middle Back can contribute to neck pain and cause many postural dysfunctional patterns. ➡️ Focus on slowly moving through the repetitions. ➡️ Keep head neutral & relaxed during repetitions. ➡️ Engage core and Glutes. ➡️ 3 sets 5 to 10 repetitions with a light band or dumbbells. . 🔴. www.perfitfitness.com

Life is basically people who are not dead trading little green pieces of paper that have dead people printed on them with other not dead people until they themselves are dead, but probably not the important enough to be printed on little green pieces of paper kind of dead #life #photography #test #concept #ultimatemuscle #clavicle #sternocleidomastoid #trapezius #deadpresidents #stockingmask #concepttest #dsl #sloth #ugly #thizzface #pectoralismajor

Rest day today but still feeling yesterday's shoulder session. Reverse cable cross has become a favourite. Working 3 muscle groups; Traps, Delts and rhomboid. #shoulders #trapezius #deltoids #rhomboids #gymrat #menshealth #gymlife #reversecableflys #reversecablecrossover

I'd better hit the lats and traps tomorrow. Any good trap exercises, @btrainer83 ?#trapezius #backday

Back and traps today.
Was suppose to be chest but them pushups killed me.
First time ever my lats feel solid. Before they were wide but more soft, now theyre rock hard which is great. Weight: 169 lbs

Checking the gainz before bed 💥😼 Gnite🌙, rest is muy importante for the progress 🗝

IG filters bring out all the massels. Put 4 lbs into my traps, arms, and valves (calves) this past month

Fun fact: I have detatched #shoulder blades which allows me to do some pretty obscure #trap #contractions making them look even bigger. You can see here a small example as I push my right hand on the counter it pushes my shoulder blade out. I'll show y'all other BB poses it helps on another time. The detachment isn't and never had been an issue, though I was born this way and everything works more than ok. If injuries lead to a detatched shoulder blade it's usually a symptom or cause of an issue that could get worse. It can become easy for some people to dislocate their shoulders. I think in my case it's made my shoulders mobile enough to not take any bad damage while I built a bunch of muscle to support everything around the area for many years. Lifting and proper prehab/rehab on any injury will keep you working through anything in your path. Keep your shoulder blades attatched kids. Traps for days 😈

I never thought I'd say this half a year ago, but man I love training backk! It makes me feel so alive. Alot of ladies want a nice butt,thick legs, and or flat tummy. But let me tell you, umm to get that you need to lift heavy. Mass on that ass. You cannot lift heavy if your back is being neglected.. that said a fit life is about working everyyythanggggggg. Remember no strong back no mass on that ass lol. I love saying that.
