Shoulder Around The World – Wall Support

  • HOW: Standing about upper arm distance away from the wall. Begin with your hand by your side and palm facing towards you. Bring your arm up and around until you hit a “sticky” spot, then rotate your palm facing towards the wall. Follow this motion all the around back to the starting position and repeat. You can change your distance away from the wall depending on your intended difficulty. The closer you are to the wall the more challenging to go around, the further you are from the wall the less mobility you need from your shoulder and the easier the exercise becomes.
  • FEEL: All of your shoulder muscles will be working, you may feel a stretch at some of these stick spots.
  • COMPENSATIONS: Avoid moving much from the torso, most of the movement should be specific to the shoulder itself.
