Day 226- Prone Shoulder Shrugs with Foam Roller

This exercise will aid in shoulder stability and organization

To do this exercise you will need a mat and a foam roller.  Start by lying on your belly with your legs long beneath you and the foam roller place about six inches above your head.  Make sure the log is perpendicular to your body.  Place your forearms on the long.  Inhale as you turn your thumbs for the ground, internally rotate your shoulders, and slide your shoulder blades to your ears, then exhale as turn your thumbs to the ceiling, externally rotate your arms and slide your shoulder blades down your back.  Repeat 8-10 times

Things to think about
This exercise is great to do if you happen to be a person that sits at the computer a lot.  Take the roller to work and every hour spend time stabilizing your shoulders.  Your neck will thank you.

Finding the rhythm of internal and external rotation of the arms will help in all shoulder movement and prevent many shoulder injuries
