Try this Yoga Tune Up® pose Reverse Crucifix to stretch the rhomboids major and minor. If the serratus anterior is going to do its job holding your scapula on your back, we need its antagonist – the rhomboids – to be supple and pliant. Otherwise, it’s just a big tug-of-war between serratus anterior and rhomboids to see who gets the scapula!
