How to Do Scapular Pullups?


#1

Hey guys i have a question about Scapular Pullups.

How do u do them? I think that my scapular are a bit underdeveloped, and i like doing pullups so i thought these would help.

What are some other scap. exercises i can do?

Thanks alot

Just so you know, the scapulae are actually bone. Do you mean the muscles of your mid upper back are too small for your liking?

Try Kelso shrugs, facepulls, prone flys, barbell rows, or something similar.

I think the scap pullups you're referring to are just pullups done with your body parallel to the floor rather than perpendicular.
