I normally don't like to blast these kind of things in groups, but I know this is something a lot of people (men especially) struggle with.

So hopefully you'll forgive me for the blast, and find this useful.

Enjoy!

THE BEST SHOULDER STRETCH YOU'VE NEVER SEEN Unless of course, you've come to one of our workshops. Then you will have seen this and more! This is an incredibly effective exercise to help improve your range of motion for handstands or partner acrobatics work that requires you to base overhead. Lie down on your back, arms up like a zombie, from there lower your hands down to the floor. You only have to do three things: 1. Keep your arms straight. That means elbows locked out. 2. Keep your shoulders as close to your ears as possible. 3. Get the backs of your hands on the floor. Unless you already have great shoulders your ribcage will flare up, and that's ok. That's the problem we're trying to solve. Your partner will come from behind and stand on your hands to keep them anchored (you're in charge of keeping the arm straight and shoulders high). And then they will apply gently increasing pressure to your rib cage. This will already likely be uncomfortable. The next bit will be more uncomfortable-er. You're going to raise your legs up straight to 90 degrees. You'll feel your lower back press into the floor. You're going to lower your legs down towards the floor until you feel your lower back position want to change. Stop there, bring your legs back up and repeat, keeping tension in your abs the whole time, but still making sure you're breathing. Do that 10 times. On the 10th time you're going to hold at the bottom and brace your abs. Your partner will remove their hands from your ribs and you will fight to keep your rib cage in the same flattened position. And there you have it, a better handstand position in 10 reps. Do this once or twice a day and the improvements will be crazy good.
