Mobility: "Standing W"

Standing W-1    Standing W-2

OBJECTIVE: Open front of shoulders & strengthen back of shoulders.

  1. Stand upright.

  2. Bend elbows and bring arms in front of chest.

  3. Pull arms back as you pinch shoulder blades together.

  4. Repeat all reps in shape of 'W.'  This exercise looks like a bird flapping its wings.

  5. Perform 5-8 reps.

Exercise Figure Tips: This is a great and simple exercise to help open the front of shoulders which are tight in most people.  The muscles used on backs of shoulders to pull arms and pinch shoulders together get strengthened as well.

*Note: This exercise is intended for "normal healthy" individuals.  If you have an injury, or abnormal pain is present,
see your physician or a certified physical therapist before continuing your exercises.
