    Hi Guys,

    I'm asking for suggestions to target my serratus anterior muscles. Briefly, I was very out of shape and began the gym workouts a year ago. I workout 4-5 times a week and everything is shaping up nicely. BUT, there is still so much flab there, it is shrinking slowly. Any advice as to how to really get this area tighter to tone it up would be appreciated.

    Medicine Ball Pull-Overs

    Benefits
    Pull-overs are excellent for strengthening the lat and serratus muscles around your shoulder blades. If you go for too much range of motion on these, you risk injuring your shoulders, so be sure to use a contained motion with maximum control.

    My favorite exercise it doing cable pull overs on an incline board. But that it is a muscle that pops its head out with low body fat rather than working it out frequently.

    Pullovers, be it cable, or dumbbells. Low bodyfat% also really helps.

    Spot reducing the flab is a myth. So other than keeping up with your workouts, and watching your diet there isn't much you can do about those wings other than be patient.

    Pushups are a great exercise to build those muscles up, and swimming helps a lot too.
