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.
We are focusing on the shoulder joint this week. The shoulder is a ball and socket joint which means it can move it a large variety of ways. The first movement allows you to explore the full range of the joint. Not only will it help create more movement in the shoulder, it will also show you the places where you could use more motion.
Once you have created all that mobility, add some stability to the shoulder with the 2nd video. Most often, the biggest impact our shoulder’s take is when we reach out when we fall. Try this shoulder press to gain some shoulder strength and stability to keep the joint happy and prepared.
