SHOULDER STRETCH 2


This shoulder stretch must be done extremely slowly.

Start by placing your left arm in the saluting position.
Lower your left hand so that it touches your shoulder.
Rotate your left elbow forward, so that your arm is perpendicular with your body.
Rotate your arm straight up, bringing your arm as close to your face as possible.
Now rotate your arm back and to the side until it is perpendicular to the side of your body.

Most people rush this part of the stretch, and do not attain the proper range of motion. You should not simply make circles with your arm.

Continue to rotate your arm back and bring it in closer to the side of your body. Bring the arm up. Now you can bring it back to the position in Figure 6c.

Repeat this exercise for the right arm. Similarly to shoulder stretch 1, you can do this exercise with both arms simultaneously.
