UNLOCK YOUR SHOULDERS

This exercise is called SHOULDER DISLOCATION, I know, sounds a bit scary, but trust me, it's really good to keep your shoulders healthy!

Here is how you can start

๐Ÿ”บUse a light resistance band

๐Ÿ”บHold it as wide as you need

๐Ÿ”บKeep a neutral spinal alignment (of you do it on the floor it's easier to keep the alignment, a little harder to perform the exercise, but it's a good place to start)

๐Ÿ”บKeep your elbow and wrists in line and your arms straight

๐Ÿ”บCircle your arms all the way back towards your hips (or wherever you can reach, remember: safety first!!)

๐Ÿ”บ Control the movement, do it slowly.

๐Ÿ”บWhen you start to feel more comfortable, you can narrow your grip or move to a small, light bar and eventually even a lifting bar, to build more strength!

โœจ BONUS: I like to hold for a few breaths when my arms are on line with the shoulders, at the back of my body, for a great chest stretch, especially after a workout!


BENEFITS:

๐ŸŽฏ It helps strengthen the muscles and tendons around the shoulder

๐ŸŽฏ Stronger muscles and tendons means more stability, which means better performance and less risk of getting injured

๐ŸŽฏIt helps lubricate the joint, so it could be useful to perform before exercise

๐ŸŽฏ It helps relieve stiffness on the rotator cuff

๐ŸŽฏ It improves shoulder mobility and flexibility
