Shoulder or scapular squeezes are a great way to help get the upper back muscles strengthened and balanced. Often with bad posture, these muscles are weak.

Using a resistive band is also a great way to help strengthen the shoulder muscles and the rotator cuff. Shoulder external rotation (ER) and seated rows can be done with or without a band.
