In this video, I wanted to go through the three must do exercises for the core of your shoulder.
3 Must Do Exercises For The Core of Your Shoulder
CLICK HERE to watch the YouTube video.
I got Alix to demonstrate it.
We are doing a side plank. You can do the side plank from the knees or from the toes. You can start off from the knees. Make sure you do the exercise correctly as you go through the side plank movement as we are working on the core of the shoulder involving all those muscles around the shoulder blades or scapular stabilization muscles. We challenge Alix’s left side of the shoulder by going through the plank position.
Now, we can challenge Alix’s right side of the shoulder when it comes to those the scapular muscles or the core of the shoulder by bringing in the dumbbell movements.
Dumbbell Movement # 1 – Arm At The Side
Arm At The Side
First, you will do the side plank position. You will bring the hip forward. Maintain a good alignment. Grab the dumbbell and lift the dumbbell up just the shoulder height and then back down.
Dumbbell Movement # 2 – Arm Out Front
Arm Out Front
Dumbbell Movement # 3 – Arm To The Side And Out Front
Arm To The Side and Out Front
You can initially start off by just going through the arm movements. You move your arm from the side out to shoulder height. Next, you go from the side and out front to shoulder height. Then, go from the opposite shoulder of the floor and move across. Go through the movement with fist close. You can start adding some weight of 2 to 3 lbs. dumbbell.
Give those exercises a go. You might feel a lot in your core, in your abdominal area and in those small shoulder blade muscles or the core of your shoulder.
