What is the function of the serratus anterior?

The serratus anterior is occasionally called the "big swing muscle" or "boxer's muscle" because it is largely responsible for the protraction of the scapula — that is, the pulling of the scapula forward and around the rib cage that occurs when someone throws a punch.

Likewise, people ask, how do you strengthen serratus anterior?

First, you can do a few simple exercises at home that can get your serratus anterior into gear.
  1. Do shoulder blade protractions. Lean against a wall and press the backs of your palms and your elbows against it.
  2. Scapular pushups. Do scapular pushups.
  3. Wall exercises for the serratus anterior.
