Shoulder Warm-Ups with Bands
I got some tight shoulders! To be honest, I struggle with my commitment to mobility but I know I need it! And to be honest, so do most of you.
I have decided to dedicate a few moments each day to a short mobility warmup. With a busy life like most of you, my workouts have to be efficient and my warmup has to be something I can do daily and not take a bunch of time.
- Two Arm Dislocates x 5
Tip: Keep abs tight and ribcage down. Don’t extend through the spine as you go back.
- One Arm Dislocates x 5 each arm
Tip: Control tension with opposite arm
- Around the Worlds
Tip: Go slow to start. This can be tricky to learn.
- Band Pull Apart
Tip: Again, abs tight and ribcage down.
- External Rotations
Tip: Don’t be afraid to drop down to a band with less tension to get full range.
Hope this warmup helps! And I hope you look a lot more mobile doing it than I do!
