Equipment needed: 1. Padded Mat (optional). We have a lot of effective shoulder and hip range of motion work today! We are working on the flexibility, mobility, and stability of your scapula aka shoulder blade muscles and hips.
We are starting off with a range of motion and activation movement for all of your muscles that surround your shoulder blades aka scapulae. Your goal is to activate and move your shoulder blades through your absolute full range of motion. If you have any pain at any point, skip this part in the range of motion and continue to perform the movement in your pain-free range of motion. Next we are working on an activation and range of motion movement for your shoulder. The note about pain above applies here as well. You get what you put into these previous two movements. Focus and squeeze all of these muscles. We are finishing up with a hip activation and range of motion movement. Focus on keeping your core engaged and the front of your pelvic bones on the mat as you move your leg slowly.
We love that you are spending time with us! Your body loves it even more. Check in with yourself after this routine and reflect on how much better your body feels and moves. Do the same later in the day today.
Do you have any questions about this routine or other routines? We can check out how you are performing specific movements if you post a video of the movement on facebook, or instagram and tag us in it @movementvault. We’ll comment with feedback and send you a comment and some ❤️. Get it guys!
