If you’re constantly dealing with a stiff, achy neck from spending too much time hunched over your phone or laptop, it’s time to focus on your upper back strength.

When you have poor posture with a forward head and rounded shoulders, it puts extra strain on the muscles in your neck and upper back.

Over time, this can lead to muscle imbalances, weakness, and that nagging “text neck” pain. The solution? Strengthening the muscles between your shoulder blades that help pull your shoulders back into proper alignment.

In this video I am going to take you through Swan Dive, a great exercise to strengthen the muscles of the upper back, shoulders and core while increasing spine flexibility and mobility.

By building strength here, you’ll be able to maintain better upright posture with your shoulders pulled back and chest open. This takes the strain off your neck and allows your head to sit properly over your shoulders instead of jutting forward.

So don’t just stretch that text neck pain away – strengthen your back to prevent it from happening in the first place! Just a few targeted exercises a couple times a week can make a big difference
