Pre-Pilates: Shoulder Mobility – Telescope Arms

Foundations: Shoulder Mobility & stability

Quick Intro: Telescope Arms

Telescope Arms

Tight shoulders from sitting too long? Then this is for you! It’ll improve the mobility of your shoulder blades and help coordinate the movements of the spine, shoulder, arm and head.⁠



What’s it good for?

🌟 Shoulder mobilisation & coordination of the shoulder complex (glenohumeral timing)
🌟 Learning to “work in oppositon”.



A quick “how to”…

Telescope Arms

🌟 Lie on your side with a small cushion or bolster under your head as a support.
🌟 Bend your knees and hips to 90 degrees and place your hands on top of each other.
🌟 Reach out your top arm away from yourself and allow your torso to rotate.
🌟 Bending your elbow up to the ceiling, bring your upper hand over your wrist, lower arm, inside elbow and across your chest and reach our in the oppsotite direction, again, allowing your torso to rotate but this time in the opposite direction.
🌟 Breathe into the stretch and then return to the starting position.


Hints & Tips:

🌟 Keep your knees over each other and reaching away from your outstretched arm.  This is the “working in opposition” aspect of the exercise.
🌟 Use your breathe to increase your strech.
🌟 Move as smoothly as you can through the full range of motion and coordinate the rotation of the hips, torso and head.
