I’d recommend working on your humoral external rotators. use the rubber bands. start with 2 sets of ten and work up to 3 sets.  you can also foam roll the chest. much easier for a guy then a female. just lay on the foam roller so that it is perpendicular to your body. rest your forehead on a block for support of your head and neck.  lay there for 5 minutes, taking really deep breaths. you may here chest cartilage cracking once you get up. don’t over do it or look for pain in the pressure. take your time and be patient. you’ll feel some discomfort and pain but let it subside on it’s own. while lying on the foam roller you can also work your lower traps by extending your arms forward, be careful not to over tilt your rib cage, keep your lower back relaxed and focus on lifting from the trapezius muscle. thumbs up. you will look like you are in a diving position. do one arm at a time while your chest is resting on the foam roller.  hope that helps.
