FLEXIBILITY WARM UP

SHOULDER REHAB

BANDED SHOULDER ER

Description: This move starts with both of your palms face up holding onto a resistance band. The closer your hands are together, the more resistance the band will provide. 1. Set your shoulder blades back and down. Hold this contraction throughout the exercise. 2. Externally rotate your shoulders to pull your hands apart from each other

Goal: 15 reps

SCAP PINCHES

Description: This move starts laying on the ground on your stomach. Then, with your arms flat on the ground above your head, squeeze your shoulder blades down and slightly together. Your arms will help by bending at the elbows to bring the shoulder blades downward as well.

Goal: 15 reps x 5 second holds

SIDE PLANK ROTATIONS

Description: This move starts in a side plank position. You then will lift your hips from the floor to be neutral with your shoulders and back down. When on your left arm, you will take your right leg and position in front of you on the floor to lessen side discomfort. Focus on holding your core tight to keep your spine as neutral as possible. Take your top arm and “thread the needle” by rotating at your bottom shoulder.

Goal: 12 reps each side

WORKOUT 1

UNILATERAL STALDER PULSES

Description: Start sitting with legs spread wide into a split position. Rotate your body towards one leg. Place your hands on either side of your leg with your palms flat onto the ground. Focus on lifting one leg at a time. *You will need to be sure to hold a strong quad contraction and to point your toes to help the quads maximally engage.*

Goal: 4 rounds of 8 reps each side

Description: This move starts in a tall plank position with your feet close to the wall. As you walk your hands backwards towards the wall, walk your feet up the wall. Use your core to keep your lower back from arching.

Extra Notes: Give yourself time between reps so you don’t get a headache or dizzy. Your body will get more use to inverting with practice.

COIL SQUATS

Description: Start in the horse stance squat (hips and knees at 90 degrees.) Twist further than 90 degrees to one side allowing the back leg to pass under the front leg, then complete bending the knee to the floor as much as possible.

HANGING CRUNCHES

Description: Hanging on a pull-up bar or equivalent surface, tuck your knees to your chest then return to fully straight position.

WORKOUT 2

V STAND - 0.25

Description: This move starts sitting on the ground, legs straight, feet pointed. Then, with no momentum, lean forward, and use your core and triceps to lift as powerfully as possible to lift your bottom.

 Goal: 4 Rounds, 10 reps per round.

FROG STAND

Description: This move starts by placing your hands on the ground flat in front of you slightly wider than your shoulders.
