  3. CARs Shoulder- 3 repetitions on each side

Total workout time: 6-10 minutes

Coaching points:

Think about moving one spinal segment at a time starting from one end and working your way to the other. Slowly drop the shoulders down and arch the back as much as you can. Hold it for 3-5 seconds before slowly moving into a rounded back position and holding for 3-5 seconds.

Coaching points:

You will hit a sticking point about the time your arm is directly overhead. At that time, rotate your palm out towards the wall. Make sure you try to minimize the amount you rotate your shoulders sideways.
