Serratus Shrug

The serratus shrug helps develop the muscles on top of the rib cage and below the chest. The exercise also increases strength and stability throughout the entire shoulder.


  1. 13_A
    Lift yourself into a dip stand, holding handles on each side with arms fully extended by your sides. Support the weight of your body with your shoulders and arms.
  2. Serratus Shrug
    Slowly lower body a few inches by relaxing your shoulder girdle. This will resemble a shrug. Reverse the movement, pushing your shoulders away from your ears to return to the starting position.

Trainer’s Tips

  • Avoid arching or rounding the back. Keep your spine long and your body straight throughout the move.
