    yes they stick out too far. don't worry about though. It's just motivation for you to get to the gym and lift more. This is the same as your ribs sticking out too far. You just need more meat. I was like this too. If i had pics i'd show you, but i don't sorry.

    So, eat and lift, and they will begin to look more normal. You just need more mass. You are too skinny for your frame.

    do a bunch of rows/facepulls/inverted rows till theres no tomorrow.

    once you get some lean tissue built around that area, all of your problems will go away.

    The solution to this is to strengthen the serratus anterior. The serratus is responsible for holding the shoulder blade against the ribcage. You need to correct this now or else you're in for a world of hurt once the shoulder blade rotates enough to cause impingement within the shoulder joint. Be patient though. It's going to take a few months to notice them pulling back to their correct position.

    could be serratus, could be rhomboids, could be lower trap

    lots of good exercises suggested here

    BUT

    big deal is if you're doing these already you may not know how to get those muscles firing.
    so get with a coach who knows how to check for muscle firing, can watch your form, and help you feel the difference of when the muscles you need to trigger are working and when they need work.

    best

    Anyone have issues with restricted mobility caused by this? My scapula sticks out huge when I lift my arms, especially on the right side, and my right arm cannot be raised higher than shoulder level. No pain or tingling in the arm but I can feel the clavicle raise slightly on the right side when I try, almost like a bone is stuck under it pushing it up and preventing me from raising that arm. If I lean backward slightly I can raise the arm, further supporting my theory (I think) that a bone it too far forward and pinned under the clavical as leaning back may be allowing that bone to drop back enough to not act as a door stop. Another odd thing can be felt when mixing my protein shakes. When I use my shaker in my left hand all feels normal. When I shake with my right it feels like something shifting in my right shoulder. Like I can feel it bumping and jumping around.

    I've been doing plenty of shoulder work to try and fix this and it has gotten very slightly better but not I'm thinking I should be focusing more on traps and upper back along with the shoulders.

    Any ideas?

    I've seen a doctor about it and they've done an ultrasound. The doctor said everything looked fine in the US then asked if it affected me at all. When I said, "Yah, I can't reach over my head with my right arm." He said, "It's something you're going to have to learn to live with."

    I'm wondering if a visit to a chiro would be useful.

    if your doc says you're good to go, see a movement coach (best) or start practicing dynamic mobility.
    here's what i'd recommend in the train along dvd/manual world
    http://www.begin2dig.com/2008/09/z-h...dys-joint.html
    and if you PM me and let me know where you live i can recommend a trainer/coach
    you can get away from this limitation.
