easysciatica. 🚨 IMPROVE YOUR SHOULDER EXTERNAL ROTATION! [self mobilization] 🚨


🚨 IMPROVE YOUR SHOULDER EXTERNAL ROTATION! [self mobilization] 🚨 Shoulder external rotation is a movement of the shoulder where the shoulder rotates away from the mid line. An example of this is if you were to pinch the elbow towards the torso and push the hand away from the body. This movement is often restricted due to the shoulder internal rotators (chest, lats, rotator cuff) simply overpowering the shoulder external rotators (infraspinatus, teres minor). With weightlifting programs focusing on pushing and isolating the powerful shoulder internal rotators, equal if not more attention should be placed on creating more shoulder external rotation. Limited shoulder external rotation could cause: 🔥 Shoulder and dull elbow pain in both the high and low bar squat 💣 Difficulty maintaining a strong front squat rack position (one shoulder is more rotated out) 💥 Pressing the barbell away/in front of you during any overhead movements To improve your shoulder external rotation, follow the steps below: 1️⃣ Grab onto the middle of a broomstick with one hand and place it on the outer side of the opposite arm 2️⃣ Reach back with the wrist of the hand so that both hands have a strong and firm grip on the broomstick 3️⃣ Pull the broomstick away from the stretching shoulder until a gentle stretch is felt This stretch can also be done at different angles to help open up different planes for shoulder external rotation. Spend anywhere from 30 - 45 seconds per side and always stretch to the point of tension, never pain! . 🚨 TAG A FRIEND THAT HAS POOR SHOULDER MOBILITY! 🚨 . #shoulders #shoulderbag #shoulder #offshoulder #shoulderworkout #shoulderday #offtheshoulder #shoulderbags #shoulderpain #shoulderstretch #shouldermobility #shoulderopener #shouldergains #shoulderstrength #shoulderrehab #shoulderinjury #repost @lustrengththerapy

Who here spends most of their time at a desk or pondering over a phone? . Well, who doesn’t these days. . These are my go to stretches especially when I need to clear out my headspace. Good thing is these can be done simply after doing a few rounds of arm circles and shoulder rotations. Add in a plank or two or even just cat-cow and move into these mindfully. . Depending on how I’m feeling I like to spend at least 2-3 mins in each position except the bottom row - don’t hold them for very long unless you have a regular practice. . Also just a reminder - tingling pain or numbness are never a good sign. So I always hold to the point of gentle tension where it just about starts to get difficult and then I work on deepening the breath. It’s not about how deep we go but how much our breath is supporting us wherever we choose to hold.❤️ . . . #yoga #yogini #yogaasana #heartopeners #shouldermobility #anahatasana #brokenwings #shoulderstretch #yogatips #yogatutorial #howtoyoga #indianyogateacher #wellnessblogger #puppypose #yogaposes #yogaeveryday #yogapractice #mumbaiyoga #relaxwithyoganama #yogaforshoulders #mumbaiyogateacher #wellnessthatworks #yinyoga #yogasequence #yogaforbeginners #restorativeyoga #officeyoga

Yoga Break at the Office 🏢 . In the past few months I have been working endless hours at my desk, so I decided to share a little sequence I repeat every couple of hours at my desk. . Working hard is good, especially if we do something that we love, however, we should take care of ourselves first, and for most. . Summarising, If you have a sedentary job, or simply spend lots of hours at the computer, here my prescription for you: . 1️⃣ 10K steps daily, for those who asked, to count my steps I use a fit band, mine is the #huaweimate20pro good quality but not overly expensive 2️⃣ Shoulders stretch every couple of hours .

We are always blown by how @miz.liz makes the best tutorials! Easy, effective, simple, and detailed! Her page is full of them and we are overjoyed with how many people benefit from her work and light spirit 🙏🏻 We love seeing people help the community ❤️ Below is her caption, read for full details! Thanks for sharing @miz.liz ・・・ ✨How to Open Shoulders✨ . . . . . Open shoulders are beneficial for lots of things - backbends, handstands, overhead extension, counteracting the hunched/forward shoulders position of every day life, etc ~ Here are some of my favorite shoulder openers you can incorporate into your practice! . . . 1. Down dog 2. Dolphin 3. Standing forward fold with clasped hands behind back 4. Thread the needle (from table top) - option to half bind top arm around low back + switch sides 5. Tricep stretch 6. Gohmukhasana (cow face) arms - take a strap or towel if you can't bind hands quite yet! + switch sides 7. Fists behind back 8. Grab opposite elbows behind back - switch crossing 9. Reverse prayer 10. Child's pose with reverse prayer 11. Puppy dog 12. Puppy dog with chest and armpits completely on the ground (this is a great chest opener as well) 13. (in any pose) Gate arms and squeeze shoulderblades together 14. Camel - getting into the backbends 😉 but this is a great shoulder/heart opener when you're sufficiently warm 15. Bow pose - another backbend, kick back into feet for more of a chest/shoulder stretch 16. Shoulder circles with strap or towel (I'm using a resistance band here) - to lubricate the shoulder joint before deeper openers/backbends! . . . For more, check out my flexibility guide on all the body parts with detailed explanations and suggested flows 😊 (link in bio) #TutorialsWithLiz

EXTERNAL ROTATION by @guerrillazen - Gorilla arms. - Also known as internally rotated shoulders are a big problem. - This postural distortion is quite common and can contribute to rotator cuff issues, impingement of the shoulder, and more… - How do you know if you have this? - Well, if while you are standing at rest you notice your thumbs pointing at one another (converging) instead of pointing straight forward (parallel with each other) then you are internally rotated. - This is due, in large part, to tight and overactive internal rotator muscles of the shoulder. - This exercise today will help fix that. - This is especially effective to do just before doing external rotation strengthening (like with a band) because it will increase range of motion. - I do this all day throughout the work day or when I feel really tight after being not he computer. - All you need is a stick of some sort. - Place is behind the arm and grab the top of it with the arm being stretched (as shown above). - Use the non stretching arm to press up on the front end of the stick to externally rotate the other arm into a nice stretch. - You can hold this for 30 seconds or more statically. - Or you can “scissor” in and out of end range of motion like you see me doing at the end of the video. - This should NOT hurt. If it does hurt then stop doing it. - Be gentle on yourself with this too. - It’s easy to do this one a little too aggressively. - *TAG A FRIEND BELOW WHO SHOULD TRY THIS* - #posture #posturecorrector #rotatorcuff #rotatorcuffrehab #rotatorcuffsurgery #biohacking #correctiveexercise #physiotherapy #physicaltherapy #baseball #tennis #shoulderworkout #shoulderstrength #shoulderstretch #stickmobility #mobilitytraining #mobilitywod #biomechanics #chiropractic #yoga #paulchek #externalrotation #bodybuilding #confidence #powerlifting #shouldersworkout #shoulderimpingement #shoulderrehab #shoulderprehab #rotatorcufftear

⚡️“FIX MY MICROBEND!!!”⚡️⠀ ⠀⠀ 🤓In my last #cirquephysio post, I discussed a common reason for the overhead elbow microbend: TIGHT or SHORT lats!⠀ ⠀ 🤷🏻‍♀️ Of course, when anyone explains the reason behind an issue in life, or circus, the *obvious* response is: “HOW DO I FIX IT?!” My darlings, there are MANY ways to address this issue, and obviously, IT DEPENDS!! However, I want to take a moment to highlight one of my favorite, and one of the most often incorrectly-performed, lat stretches in performing arts. ⠀ ⠀⠀ KEY POINTS: ⠀⠀ ✅ keep your low back ROUNDED, not arched at ALL (if your back arches, the ORIGIN of the lats (your lumbar spine) comes closer to the INSERTION (your shoulder) and therefore puts the lats on SLACK, which decreases the specificity of this stretch.⠀ ✅ Hold a block in your hands, and keep wrists stacked over elbows (don’t let elbows slide out). ⠀⠀ ✅ RIBS IN! TAIL TUCKED! Remember, that posterior pelvic tilt is what keeps the lats on STRETCH.⠀ ✅ Shoulders shrugged/elevated (like in a handstand), NOT down and back! (Read more about WHY in a blog post that I’ll link in my story!)⠀⠀ ✅ Slowly sink chest until you feel a nice stretch in your armpit, back of your shoulder/shoulderblade, or side body. ⠀⠀ ⠀ ‼️NOTE: you should feel this stretch in the bulk of muscle under your armpit or along the side/back of your ribcage. You should NOT feel this stretch on TOP of your shoulder, or along your anterior deltoid/biceps tendon. Read that again, because its SUPER IMPORTANT. You should NOT feel anything pinching at the top of your shoulder!! If you feel this, get in to see a physio, because you will NOT be making shoulder flex progress- this often means that the muscles on and around your shoulder blade are not working together correctly in this overhead position, and may eventually lead to a shoulder injury if you keep pushing though this stretch!! ⠀ ⠀ Questions ❓Comments ❓Concerns❓Leave them riiiiight here👇, and tag a friend 👯 who could use this lat stretch 💪

It's shoulder time for #toptipstuesday. Thanks to @catvaladezyoga for this . Try these stretches out the next time you feel overworked, whether from your job or from too many handstands. 😉 These 5 stretches hit your shoulders at all angles—overhead upper arms (which also stretches your outer and lower back muscles), outer arms (which also stretches your rhomboids and traps aka between shoulder blades and back of neck), and front of shoulders (also hitting chest and neck). • People think of “shoulder openers” and tend to only think of opening in one direction, much like hip opening requests when people are only thinking of pigeon (and yet the hips have muscle on all sides of the joint), but ALL of these are important for happy shoulders. • Feel free to use a strap in reach behind variations as shown, if you feel pinching or limited range of motion in attempting to interlace fingers behind you or internally and externally grab behind as in cow-face-pose arms (lower right image). You will not only protect your shoulders with that modification but you will be able to access the stretch, which is the whole point! • Sometimes it’s muscle tightness that keeps us in limited range, sometimes it’s our bony structure (which obviously is unchangeable). Whatever it is, be where you are and be honest with what FEELS GOOD. • What’s your favorite shoulder stretch?? . . . . . . #howtoyoga #yogatutorial #yogatutorials #letsgetflexy #yogalife #yogabody #shoulderstretch #stretchitout #yogateacher #yogapracticedaily #yogaalignment #yogatutorial #yogatutorials #yogaselfpracticetribe #yogaselfpractice #yoga #toptipstuesday

⭐️ "Change happens through movement and movement heals." -Joseph Pilates ⭐️ . Shoulder series part 4 ❤️ Note: this move is more advanced than it looks and may not be suitable for some shoulder injuries. Blocks are optional; feel free to keep arms extended (as shown above) but on the floor. 😊 1️⃣Begin with hands underneath shoulders and hips above knees. Slowly walk hands out in front of you, WITHOUT SINKING THE HIPS. Keep them lifted high, feeling the energy cascade down the spine. Pull low belly away from hip flexors to encourage length through the lumbar spine. 2️⃣Rest the forehead on the mat and melt your heart toward the floor, arching the cervical spine (upper back) and feel the shoulders externally rotate toward the sky. 3️⃣Keep pressing into the fingertips and center of the palms as you feel the heels of the palms gently lift. Watch the elbows from bowing out to the sides - try to keep elbows rotated slightly toward the floor, but KEEP the external rotation of the shoulders (it takes practice). 4️⃣For a deeper stretch, place blocks closer to your head and place elbows on blocks, bring hands in reverse prayer behind the nape of the neck. Head will likely lift off the floor in this variation. 🤗 hold for 6-8 breaths and I promise you will feel rejuvenated!! Now go! 💕💕 you can always comment with any questions 😘 @caitstoopid #fitness

How does a person chose just ONE favourite inversion?! I’m so sorry to put such a cruel decision making situation on your hands. But as I shed a little tear for scorpion handstand, I’m going with a hollowback pincha - cos if there’s one thing that feels better than inverting, it’s stretching whilst inverting 👌🏼 ⠀ So this is my choice for day 3 of #PickYourPractice and I decided to test my bravery with this and get on top of my @feetup. Because putting something squishy and unstable under your elbows in this shape is meant to be fun right?! 🤣 Took me a fair few tries to convince my body to hollowback because the idea of dropping to forearm wheel from here really didn’t make safe sense in my head 🙈 My confidence grew bit by bit but this shape took me 48 seconds to move into I went THAT slowly 😂 I mean I pat myself on the back for that kind of endurance but it was all in the name of survival. ⠀ Inverting in small spaces people 🙄 I do not recommend it one bit! If you’re new to ANY inversion, my best piece of advice is to take that practice to somewhere with so much space you have 100% confidence you will not hit anything if you should fall. Even to this day if I’ve got stuff around me, it takes me twice as long to find my balance cos there’s this little voice in my head that’s all ‘yeah but what if.....’ 😈 ⠀ My lovely stripey cohosts have other ideas for you if you’re after some inspiration! @helen_garner_yoga @lancuks_yoga @sabine.appleby @livinleggings ⠀ Generously sponsored by @k.deer @liforme @feetup @mantraband @insideoutsideoutsidein ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #hollowbackpincha #pinchamayurasana #feetup #gokdeer #kdeer #inversionaddict #pinchatuck #dosomethingthatscaresyou #pushyourlimits #inversionpractice #pinchapractice #heartopener #shoulderstretch #hollowback #pinchavariation #yogainspo #yogamakesyoustrong #balancetraining #bodyweightexercises #holdyourown #advancedyoga #iloveyogapants #breathisboss #movingmeditation #findyourfocus #yogaposes #yogabody

Just a little thoracic/shoulder stretch to combat FAS (flabby arm syndrome)! Sorry for the heavy sweater, but it’s chilly here! . 1️⃣ Find a counter or kitchen island and a yoga block or something to space out your forearms. . 2️⃣ Place your elbows on the counter with the block between the forearms and walk your feet back to give you some room to lean your hips back. . ⭐️ Optional to bend your knees . 3️⃣ Slide your shoulders away from your ears and slightly curl your upper back like a round back cat, spreading your shoulder blades wide. . 4️⃣ Lean your hips back, allowing your chest to drop forward toward the floor. . ⭐️ Try not to extend your upper back, but keep it slightly round to help the blades stay wide. . 5️⃣ Lean forward, backing off on the stretch. Repeat a few times. . Two things that jumped out at me when I watch this. 1.) I didn’t have a neutral pelvis, but I’m sorta ok with that for this stretch. 🤷🏻‍♀️ And 2.) I have a very small range of motion in my shoulders. 👎🏼 This stretch highlights that I can over move at one place (my ribs as I show in the beginning twice while shaking my head no), and under move at another (my shoulders). 🤔 So if I have tight shoulders and do this stuff a lot, chances are you do too. 😳 This series goes right into that FAS area, and I’m shaking while doing it, so it’s intense.

Purvottanasana (Upward Plank Pose) I love how we fall in and out of love with Asanas. When practicing Ashtanga I used to dread this posture. I just didn’t feel good doing it and while in paschimottansana my mind would get distracted knowing what was coming. And then one day. It all became easy. I lifted my hips higher than before and toes would touch the floor (ok, not always) . I now love this posture: it is now part of my Vinyasa flows : after a forward-bend, it is just de-li-cious ! arms, legs, wrists stretch ✔ shoulders, thorax, ankles strengthening ✔

#wallorwheel day three with any Shoulder Opener as a theme. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m gonna go for the wheel team and I chose wide legged forward fold with the arms stretched. This is one of my favorite shoulder stretch.

All the days I missed in #strongstretchyshoulders: Thread in the Needle (second try, thank you for the advice @andreamegale.yoga !), Eka Bhuja Sawstikasana I, Eka Bhuja Padmasana, Rack pose, Penguin pose and Puppy pose. • • I didn’t post every day but this challenge was too good and I still wanted to give it a go. Even if it’s last minute. • • Some asanas are completely new to me and I’m planning to continue to incorporate them into my practice 😊. • • Thank you wonderful hosts: @andreamegale.yoga @temyoga @indira.yoga 💕 • • Lovely sponsors: @embracetheblock @will2wow_jewelry @bolderafashion @liquidoactive

🥨 THE BRETZEL STRETCH - Yes that’s a BRETZEL with a B. This is hands down my favorite post training/cool down stretch I like to perform. - You may find it challenging to grab the back foot, if that’s the case then use a band or strap to loop around your foot. - Make sure to keep your hips stacked to protect your low back. - ✅ MAKE IT BETTER by relaxing into rotation using your exhale. - #stretch #stretches #yogainspiration #middlesplits #asana #flexability #armbalance #flexibility #yogaathome #flexibilty #loveyoga #hipopener #foamroller #strengthening #corework #notyoga #dailyyoga #shoulderstretch #getflexible #yogablocks #selfpractice #yogainspo #yogastrength #yogaforall #crowpose #yogavideos #backbends #yogaoffthemat #getonyourmat #repost @deathofthedesk
