My shoulder posture is somehow incorrect. My shoulders and neck are leaned forward and scapulae are pointing out. I think that the shoulders are also a little rotated forward.

I think some of my muscles are shortened because I can't achieve correct posture even when I'm trying.

Can you recommend me some gym exercises or stretching exercises which will help me to correct the posture of the shoulders and whole upper back in general?

Thank you very much.

You may want to check some of these exercises for posture. The "wall pec stretch" is effective. However, you can't really just correct part of your posture without addressing your whole body. The forward shoulders and neck may be coming from tightness in your legs, pelvis or trunk. –  BackInShapeBuddy Apr 8 at 7:13
    
Thanks, I'll definitely try it. –  rbalent Apr 9 at 21:29
