I got Alix to demonstrate.
#1 – Vertical Hanging Exercise
You are like grabbing a pull bar and hang from it. You can use the top of a door frame to hang from in order to stretch out the shoulders. Alix will be grabbing something overhead that can handle her weight and she will bend through the knees and stretch as much as she can in the shoulder. Start off with one set of 5 repetitions holding for 5 seconds. You can progress on to one set of 5 repetitions holding for 15 seconds.
Vertical Hanging Exercise
Now if you got your shoulder diagnosed, like you have instability or sloppy shoulders, this would be an exercise that you should not do. But if you have general shoulder pain and tightness like a rotator cuff issue and shoulder impingement issue, this exercise would be fine for you to do.
#2 – Push Up with a Plus
Alix will go down to the mat and will do the exercise from the knees. She will go through a push up movement and straighten out then add a little bit of a rounding movement. Do not collapse the head and round the chest. We just want the shoulders blades to come apart pushing the arms a little further away and really working on the muscles called serratus anterior. You can start off doing the exercise from the knees and then you can progress to the toes. Do one set of 5 repetitions in a smooth controlled movement and hold for one or two seconds at the end.
#3 – Seated Push Up
Seated Push Up
Alix is sitting near the front half of the chair. She is nice and upright. She got her arms to the side and brings her seat off the chair and then come back. She is pushing down which brings the shoulder blade down and works the serratus anterior muscles. Start with one set of 5 repetitions in a smooth controlled movement and hold the end position for one or two seconds.
