Shoulder Lateral Band Walks (Supported)
Shoulder Band Walks (Bear Position: Lateral, Forward, Backwards)
Points of Performance:
Choose the option that best suits you. Supported requires less core stability and will be easier to complete.
Hinge forward at the waist, ensuring the back is flat. Place hands on a raise surface so that the torso is parallel to the ground.
Move one hand a few inches outwards, then return back to the starting point. Repeat for the number of prescribed repetitions. Then complete on the other side.
Start in the bear crawl position; hands stacked under shoulders, knees under hips. Shins are parallel to the ground. Focus on keeping the shoulders and hips level as you move.
Move laterally in one direction for the prescribed number of repetitions, then in the other direction.
Then move forward for the prescribed number of repetitions, keeping tension in the band. The band should not collapse in between your arms.
Then move backwards to finish the exercise.
