Gravity Drop

Time Frame: Hold position for 3 minutes.

Why: This re-engineers joint links between heels and shoulders. 

How: Stand up on step with heels edged off step. Hold onto rail for support. Let body weight press down into heels to engage the backside leg muscles.  Don’t bend knees. Hold for 3 minutes. 

Static Extension

Time Frame: Hold position for 1 minute.

Why? Turns off compensating hip muscles, restores the normal low back arch.

How: Kneel on all fours, shoulders directly over hands. Let back and head relax toward floor so shoulder blades come together.  Let belly button push toward floor so there is a pronounced arch in back. Keep elbows straight, shift hips forward 6-8 inches in front of knees.  Hold 1 min. 

Circumduction

Time Frame: Do 2 sets of 30 circles for each arm in each direction.

WhyThis restores ball-and-socket function to shoulder that has frozen into a forward hinged position. 

How: Bent over a bench or chair, Hold a 5 lb weight lightly in free hand – as you gently pendulum weighted arm in a small circle.  Let momentum carry arm through the circle. Circle 30x clockwise, and 30x counterclockwise, then repeat on other arm. Do 2 sets of 30 for each arm.

Wall Clock

Time Frame: Hold each position for 1 minute.

Why: Unlocks shoulder blades. 

How: This is a 3-position move.  If 3rd position aggravates elbow, only do position 1 & 2 then try again after two days. 

  1. Position one: Face wall, feet pigeon-toed up against the wall.  Place arms over head in 12-O’Clock position, and hold for 1 minute.  Elbows straight, while shoulders rotate away from the wall, with the thumbs pointing away from the wall.  Hold 1 minute. 
  2. Position two: Same pigeon-toed stance. Place arms at 10-and-2-O’Clock position. Hold for 1 minute. 
  3. Position three: Same pigeon-toed stance. Place arms at quarter-to-three position. Hold for 1 minute. 

Supine Groin Stretch

Time Frame: Hold position for up to 10 minutes per leg.

Why: This turns off compensating groin muscles. 

How: Lie on back, one leg bent 90 degrees resting on chair. Other leg extends straight out on floor. Prop both feet so toes point upward.  Hold until extended leg is completely relaxed, then switch leg position and repeat. Use Thigh Test to determine when leg is completely relaxed.
