CARs exercises, controlled rotations of a joint, are effective ways to create mobility. Learn to control your shoulder with this high-tension exercise, performed in half kneel.
Watch the video and read the pointers below.
1... Start with one knee up and one knee down.
2... The hand on the "down knee" side reaches across the body and latches on to the "up knee."
3... With your free arm, keep your elbow straight and raise your thumb towards the sky.
4... When you hit a block, turn the hand and continue your circle.
5... Draw the BIGGEST circle you can keeping the arm as close to the body as possible.
This exercise should not be painful, just uncomfortable from all the tension. Enjoy!
