Neck and Shoulder Month – Week Three

This week, we are focusing on shoulder mobility and stability. If your shoulders are off-balanced and week, or if you lack range of motion in the rotator cuff and shoulder girdle, your neck and spine will have to do some work to compensate. This can lead to tension in the neck, shoulders, and mid-back.

Try these 2 moves out to gain mobility and strength through the whole shoulder.

Joint Health Month – Week One

All month long we are going to be focusing on keeping your joints happy and healthy (and hopefully, creak-free).

This first week, we are working on the lumbar spine. Need some mobility in that area? Try this first exercise to get it moving. Need some stability? Try the second exercise to turn on those low back stabilizers and give your spine some support. Want to have a healthy back? Do both. 😜

Rotation Month – Week Three

We are moving on from our hips to our shoulders. Healthy shoulders contribute to healthy necks, backs, elbows, and wrists.

Sticky shoulder blades can lead to tweaks and pains in the shoulder. If your shoulder blades don’t move, you put a lot of stress and responsibility into the rotator cuff. Unglue those blades with this first joint rotation mobilization. ⁠

Once you have those blades moving, strengthen that rotation with this seated external rotation exercise.
