Scapular shrugs are an excellent mobility drill for loosening up the musculature around the upper back by isolating the movement of the shoulder blades.

To recap, the variations were:

1. Scapular shrugs on all fours
2. Scapular shrugs from plank
3. Scapular shrugs with a band

And if you can't get on the ground for whatever reason, put your hands against the wall and do them against a wall. It's very low intensity, but it still works to loosen the area up.

Note: These go by many different names: rhomboid push ups in physical therapy (which I believe is incorrect), scapular push ups and scapular shrugs in gymnastics. The gymnastics "scapular shrugs" name stuck with me, so that's what I'm calling them.
