A simple mobilizing exercise for the shoulders

Position: Stand with your arms by your sides.
Movement: Lift your arms forwards, upwards and outwards to make big circles in the air.
Repetitions and frequency: 10-20 times, 1-3 times a day.
Note: Avoid pain. Breathe normally. Make sure you don’t tense your neck.
Benefits: Mobilizes and lubricates the shoulder joint. Excellent for the circulation, warms you up in cold conditions, and can be used as a preliminary to warming up for sports.
After injury: A late-stage exercise following shoulder and upper arm injuries. Should be done immediately, or as quickly as possible, after an injury involving the wrist or hand.
