Shoulder Squeeze Exercise

To start, sit in a chair with your feet flat on the floor. Shift your weight slightly forward to avoid rounding your back. Relax. Keep your ears, shoulders, and hips aligned:

  • Raise your arms to shoulder height, elbows bent and palms forward.

  • Move your arms back, squeezing your shoulder blades together.

  • Hold for 10 seconds. Return to starting position. 

  • Repeat 5 times. 

For your safety, check with your healthcare provider before starting an exercise program.
