Core and Shoulder Workout

It's always handy when we can perform an exercise that targets multiple muscle groups in a functional manner. Our exercise video this week is called a "prone walk out." I perform this exercise regularly as it's a good way to keep my shoulders healthy and my core strong. Just make sure you allow plenty of room for yourself!

Standing Crossed Extension

Today's video shows an exercise for strengthening the mid/low trap muscles. These muscles are between and below your shoulder blades and are very beneficial for good posture and shoulder health. They are difficult to target and are often neglected in upper body routines. Be sure to listen to the common errors to make sure you perform it correctly.

Enjoy and stay active!
