One of my students requested that I post this series of standing band exercises so she could repeat it. Exercises include shoulder movement, arm strengthening, squats, lunges, standing balance and posterior rotator cuff isolation. You could use weights if you don’t have a band or do it without a resistance tool..
My colleague Julie over at Tahoe Custom Massage asked me to post a video about scapular stabilization so here you go my friend.
Repetitive stress injuries can occur at the shoulder when the scapula is not anchored with arm movement. Additionally, rounded computer-driven posture creates dysfunctional scapular placement and can aggravate the shoulder joint. This video focuses on 1) the bones of the shoulder girdle, 2) the postural relationship to scapular placement, 3) scapular motions and 4) scapular stabilization exercises moving on diagonal lines and circles. Unfortunately, after finishing the video I realized I had made an error, but I’m embracing my imperfection. Please just accept my apologies and correction here. CORRECTION: I said upward rotation and inward rotation. It should be upward and downward rotation.
How to engage the deep core muscles for pelvic stability. This slow moving video takes you step by step to isolate the pelvic floor, access the core, and keep pelvic stability with knee openings and leg slides. Tennis balls are used for proprioception and to address trigger points in the glutes. The pelvic clock exercise accesses the pelvic floor, transversus abdominis, and lumbar multifidus muscles.
