This exercise focuses on working the entire shoulder 'girdle' and makes an excellent warm-up before any resistance or weight training involving the shoulders.
- Start by standing straight with your feet shoulder width apart. Your arms should be straight out to the sides, so that your body forms a T.
- Slowly start by making small circular motions with both arms on either side. After a few repetitions of small circles, enlarge your circles and do the same amount of reps.
- Your end position should look the same as the start position. Breathe in and out, and release arms to the side of the body.
- Special Tip: Try changing the size of arm circles for different reps.
