If you think back over the past 6 months, how many times have you reached your arm above shoulder level? How about straight up overhead? Yeah, me too....
Our body and brain are super smart. They're also very efficient. They prioritize what we need to get through our average day. Living, breathing, working, and taking care of ourselves, family, and friends, those are the basics. That means the mobility we need to do certain tasks may not be available when we need it. This may lead to injury or soreness.
One of the common areas we lose mobility is our shoulder. If you lift your arm straight above your head, can you get your arm in line with your ear? What if you lift it out to the side as high as you can? Can you keep your arm in line with your ear?
If not, one of the sources of this lack of mobility may be your shoulder. Don't worry. You can work on it. Take it slow. Be gentle. These two exercises will help you get there.
Let me know what you think.
