🚨Shirt Giveaway! We know that being quarantined in not optimal. Doing your daily Movement Vault routine is optimal though and the best part is, you can do it at home! So, we want to see you guys doing your MV routines at home. Post a pic or video of you doing your Movement Vault routine solo or with your family, friend, significant other, or furry friend and tell us why you love doing your MV routine and tag us in it @movementvault. We are picking one post per week and giving away a free Movement Vault t-shirt or racerback tank! Winners will be notified via DM or facebook message. Good luck and stay healthy.
Today is all about the rotator cuff muscles and increasing your shoulder’s overhead position. Your overhead head position aka putting your arm overhead can be a tight movement and/or unstable movement for a lot you out there. Some of the muscles that become tight and/or not stable are your rotator cuff muscle muscles and your lats. We are going to work on both of these muscle groups today.
Equipment needed: 1. Mobility Ball or lacrosse ball. 2. Padded Mat (optional). Today we are working on the flexibility, mobility, and stability of your shoulders. We are starting off with a muscle/fascia release for your posterior rotator cuff muscles, specifically your teres minor and infraspinatus muscles. Next, we are working on an end-range stretch isometric technique to increase your shoulder flexion aka your overhead position. Make sure you are as deep as possible into your stretch, without pain, before starting your muscle activation. We are finishing up with a cross chest end-range stretch isometric technique to stretch out and activate your rotator cuff muscles that you released earlier in the routine. Get after it!
