Exercise of the Month – Active Shoulder Stretch

1. Hold a cord or stretchy band horizontally in front of you at hip height with your hands wide and your knuckles facing away from you

2. Slowly raise your arms above your head (keeping tension on the cord) and rotate your shoulders back so that the cord moves slowly behind your back.

3. When the cord touches your lower back reverse the movement by rotating your shoulders forwards and lifting your arms back up above your head and then lowering them back down to the start position.

Reps: 2 – 3

Good For: Shoulders and Upper Back
