A strong upper back is essential for a powerful, prominent chest and a healthy shoulder capsule. All four of the rotator cuff muscles in the shoulder originate on the shoulder blade. Knowing this, you should build scapular stability through pulling movements (like inverted rows). For every one chest movement you do over the course of the week, double up on the amount of back movements you do to build good posture and prevent imbalances and injuries in the future.
Program It: The postural muscles are geared toward endurance, so go for high-rep sets of 12 to 20.
