If you're looking to improve your shoulder range of motion and stability, incorporating mobility exercises into your daily workout routinesis a great place to start.
First, try the door frame stretch. Stand in a doorway and place your arms on either side of the frame at shoulder level. Slowly lean forward until you feel a gentle stretch in your shoulders. Hold for 30 seconds and repeat 3 times.
Next, try the band pull-apart. Hold a resistance band in front of your chest with your arms straight. Keeping your arms straight, pull the band apart until it touches the sides of your chest. Slowly return to the starting position and repeat for 3 sets of 10 reps.
Third, try the standing row. Attach a resistance band to a stable object at chest height. Hold the band with your arms straight and palms facing down. Pull your elbows back and squeeze your shoulder blades together. Slowly return to the starting position and repeat for 3 sets of 10 reps.
Incorporating these exercises into your workouts, either before or after, will not only improve your shoulder range of motion and stability, but they will also help to prevent injuries and improve overall upper body strength. Be sure to listen to your body and only perform these exercises with proper form to avoid strain or injury.
