Shoulder Lawnmower – Band

  • HOW: Start with your opposite foot in front of the other in a split stance position. Anchor a band in front of you at floor weight. Holding the band on the side with the leg back, reach down and across.  Bring your arm back up to your side as you rotate your shoulder back and open your chest, ending with your hand above your head and your elbow straight out from your shoulder. Imagine that you are winding up to throw a ball!
  • FEEL: You should feel the muscles in your shoulder working.  You should also feel the muscles in your thigh and upper back work as your twist down and up. 
  • COMPENSATION: Keep a stable position with your legs, don’t lose your balance.  Keep your trap relaxed as you bring the band up and rotate.
