Take your shoulders to school with three workouts designed for the over-achieving shoulder joint! If your shoulders do challenging movements and lift heavy weights they need a good education to prevent injury and improve performance.
Proper shoulder function requires more than fifteen muscles and four joints, making the shoulder versatile but prone to injuries and imbalances. This DVD will arm you with a variety of tools to stabilize, strengthen, and mobilize your shoulders, improving flexibility and technique in any shoulder-intensive activity you choose. These exercises can be done all together or taken as needed to design the perfect workout for you.
Part 1: Stabilization/Warm Up targets the rotator cuff and muscles of the upper back so that your shoulders are warm and ready for anything.
Part 2: Strengthening provides a series of scalable strengthening exercises designed to build the proper technique and form for common shoulder-intensive activities including pull-ups, handstands, pole dance handsprings, and push-ups.
Part 3: Mobility offers resistance-based active flexibility exercises to open up the neck, shoulders, and chest without compromising stability or strength. It is the perfect mobility workout for activities that require both strength and flexibility in the shoulders.
This DVD is perfect for people with shoulders, especially people who need their shoulders to be highly educated, including:
All exercises are demonstrated by real aerialists and narrated by Kristina Nekyia, who offers detailed descriptions of the subtle movements and target muscles.
