I suffer from a mild winged scapula and I wanted to train my serratus anterior to try to fix it.
There are lots exercises I've found for it. For instance:
- Serratus Jabs
- Wall Slides
These two exercises are taken from here, but I've found others elsewhere like:
- The Hollow Body Crunch
- The Hollow Body Plank
My problem is that I can't activate it very well. I had a similar problem with my glutes (also called gluteal amnesia) that I've fixed by performing lots of glutes bridge with the cue of pre-posteriorly tilting my pelvis before exercising and then mantaining such a posture whilst pressing with my glutes.
Well, I think I need some activation cues for my Serratus Anterior. I can't feel it very well and I often confuse it with my lats as it is very small and very "asleep".
I've also found this picture with an activation cue for the Overhead Press:
Do you find it useful? But shouldn't the shoulder blades be retracted whilst overhead pressing?
