Scapular Wall Slides


I tried Scapular wall slides and I love them! however, I am curious, are they a muscle building excercise or a stretch? How do I build large scaps if it is only a stretch?


That should be the link that shows SWS

I appreciate the encrible response to my topic. Do I really smell all that bad?


Oh not to worry Barney, I've smelled far worse.

Anyway, I asked Cressey about that movement and he said it's basically an "activation" movement, designed primarily to activate the middle-back musculature that isn't often worked.

It's not really meant to build muscle, per say, but more to promote back health, better posture, etc.
