Mobility: "Twist-Turn"

Directions: Perform my Dynamic Warm-Up exercises at “beginning” of workout for maximum benefit and improvement.
Pick a safe level; never be unsafe or exceed your capacity to “control” your body!

Twist Turn-1

Twist Turn-2

OBJECTIVE: Open shoulders.

  1. Stand upright and extend both arms straight out to sides.

  2. Rotate one “upper arm” forward and down while rotating the opposite “upper arm” backward and down.

  3. Repeat in opposite directions.

  4. Perform 5-8 reps on each side.

Exercise Figure Tips: This is a very simple exercise I learned in a yoga class.  The key is to make your "upper arms" do the rotations instead of just the lower forearms.  Remember--the objective is to get increased movement out of the shoulder joints--not wrists and elbows.

*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.
