Side external rotations for scapula?

So I have a chronic case of tendonitis/osis in my tricep, which has been made worse due to some scapula winging. The physio said the scapula is most likely tugging on the tricep kinda thing. So I need to fix my scapula in order to properly rehab my tricep. My physio prescribed me straight-arm...

Correcting back issues - exercises vs stretches

Hey all, first time poster. Hopefully I'm doing this right. I’ve decided to alter my workouts from a fairly casual routine to a much more rigorous and focused approach. Previously, I was going to the gym about five days a week and lifting for around 30-45 minutes, then doing cardio for anywhere...

How to incorporate bodyweight exercises into a routine?

When you lift is easier to make it harder, just increase the weight. But for something like push ups, burpees, crunches, pull ups, etc... how could you make them more effective without simply doing more?

Weird feeling/pain in spine when retracting scapula

When I retract and depress my scapula I'm getting a weird pain in my spine / "upper thoracic" kinda level with where my shoulder blades are.

Hello, this is going to be a little tricky to explain so I'm going to enlist the help of pictures. The top 3/4 of the rep I can do about 3-4 without to much trouble. However, when I'm hanging there or I'm fully extended I can't do a single one. From hanging when I go to do a pull-up I only feel it...

Squats vs Seated Leg Press

What are the benefits of each comparing to one another? The other day all the squat racks were used so I went to the seated leg press. Got the same mobility that I would on the squats, but my quads were killing me on the leg press whereas it doesn't really do much on squats. Do they target the same...
