This exercise – imitating an “I have no money” movement – is a great way to relieve midback and/or rhomboid pain.
- Stand in an upright position with the elbows bent to 90 degrees (keep elbows tight to the torso)*
- Holding onto a resistance band – with palms facing up – inhale and allow the hands to travel laterally by externally rotating at the shoulder while keeping the elbows tight to your torso
- Hold for a few seconds
- Slowly release the band back to the starting position
- Repeat 10-15 times
Don’t let your back arch or head come forward as the arms rotate out.
* You can also perform this exercise with straight arms.
