If you think you know which muscle this is, please comment below! Here are a few facts about this mystery muscle:

  • It assists in breathing by lifting your upper ribs when you take a deep breath in.

  • It is comprised of anterior, middle, and posterior muscle bellies.

  • When there is a trigger point in this muscle, it sends pain to your shoulder blade region.

  • It can become overworked and tight from stress-related rapid breathing.

  • It can also become overworked and tight from workout-related heavy breathing.

  • The first letter of this muscle is S.

The answer is... the scalene muscle!
