Tight shoulders- help!

Post by Lift »

Hi Everyone! :wave: I have been working out at my gym for many many years. I've noticed that I'm holding my shoulders upwards and the muscles are tight.What could be causing this tightness? Is this from using the Roman Chair? I bend my knees up to my chest for 3 sets of 12 reps on it. Any suggestions how to alleviate it?
Thanks for your advice!

Hi Lift, good to talk to you.

I'm not entirely sure what you mean. Do you mean the tightness occurs when you raise your shoulders so your arms are straight out in front of you or to the side of you, or do you mean the shoulders may be raising upwards as a knock on effect to from one or more exercises you're doing?
