Shoulder Extension (With Wand)

Shoulder extension (with wand)

  1. Stand, and hold a wand in both hands behind your back. You can also use a broom handle or anything stiff and about 3 feet long. Place your hands wide enough apart on the wand so it is comfortable, about the same width as your shoulders. Your palms should face away from your body.
  2. Move the wand back away from your body. Go as far as possible without pain.
  3. Hold for about 6 seconds, and then relax.
  4. Repeat 8 to 12 times.
