Shoulder Exercise – Floor Angel Glide

Many people with shoulder injury because there is a postural imbalance in the shoulder girdle including the shoulder blade (scapula). In order to truly strength the shoulder and prevent further injuries, retraining the scapula is very important.

Here is the first and the most simple exercise. Floor Angel Glide. This exercise can be performed as pre-work out warm.

Key points:

  • Keep the shoulder blades, elbows and wrists on the floor during the entire movement. So the arms will be gliding on the floor like snow angel.
  • Only perform the range of motion within the range where you can keep the arms flat against the floor
  • Start with 10 reps upto 40 reps. Should be done slowly. Do not rush through this.
