Contracted Stretched

The serratus anterior muscles contract in utthita trikonasana, drawing the scapula away from the midline and extending the arms. This opposes the action of the rhomboids (which also contract in this pose). Adjusting the contraction of these opposing muscles assists in turning and opening the chest in this pose.
