Stick-up

stick-up• Stand with your back against a wall. Your feet should be 6 inches away from the wall and your butt, upper back, and head should all be in contact with the wall at all times.
• Stick your hands up overhead. Keep your shoulders, elbows, and wrists touching the wall. Slide your arms down the wall and tuck your elbows into your sides.
• This should bring your shoulder blades down and together, contracting the muscles between your shoulder blades as well as the shoulder muscles.
• From the bottom position, try to slowly slide your arms up until they are straight and in a “stick-em up” position. Try to improve your range of motion each week.
• The goal is to improve shoulder mobility and postural control.
