Strengthening the upper back muscles with rows will help you stand up straighter
Spend all day at a desk and your posture can slip in Quasimodo territory. To counteract the slump, strengthen your rhomboids—upper back muscles that run from your spine to your scapula and help move your shoulder blades—with this proven move:
Works Upper back, shoulders, arms
1. Sit on the floor, legs extended in front of you. Wrap a resistance band around your feet and grasp each end, palms facing each other.
2. Bend arms and draw hands towards sides, elbows pointing behind you [shown]. Return to starting position. Do 3 sets of 12 reps.
