  • FEEL: You should feel the muscles in your shoulder working as you slowly walk your hands up the wall to your prescribed height.
  • COMPENSATION: Avoid bringing the shoulder up to the ear as you perform this exercise, keep your shoulder relaxed allowing it to work through the appropriate range for shoulder abduction.
