Strengthen your Serratus. Why? Strengthening the Serratus will help reduce the risk of shoulder injury. Insert the Serratus Side Crunch. Lay one side with the arm that’s on the floor supporting the head. The top arm is placed on the ball and is holding the ball against the wall. Perform a Side Crunch and simultaneously push the ball into the wall as if you’re trying to pop it. Squeeze your side in that top position for about 2-3 seconds and repeat. And if we told you this exercise might increase your bench press would you do it? This movement and others like it will help stabilize your shoulder blades which means more pressing strength 💪🏼 Give this exercise a try and let us know how it helped you!
