Loose joints

Some people are stiff. Some are on the other end of that spectrum and require work to reach higher joint stability.

The work is easy but consistency is required to achieve success.

Here is an example for loose shoulders:

Place yourself in a push up position, you can begin against a wall and work your way to the ground.

Now, with your breathing as rhythm, Tense and relax one shoulder and then the next for sixty breaths.

Continue, by pulling the arms together and pulling them apart to the sides. Inward with the inhale and outward with the exhale. Repeat for sixty breaths.

Continue, by pulling the arms up and down and switching the direction between the sides. Inhale one way and exhale with the exhale. Repeat for sixty breaths.

Continue, by bending the arms at the elbows to half the height of the push up and repeating the process and then hovering a feather width above the surface.

For added, dynamic stability, follow the same process while facing away from the wall or by holding a stick in different angles. More on that, in my online mobility classes.

Do this twice to three times a week and you will see the results soon.

Have a partner with a large stick push and pull you with the stick in a continuous way to learn to move from strike to strike (it is all the same contact in different levels) and you tense up against the pressure for a moment to become aware of the natural tension and desire to stay in place the body has and than relax and let the stick move as you guide it to avoid harm to yourself (for example if you have a pressure on your chest you guide it with your shoulder and arm to protect your face and neck). Do this for a while and progress to doing this continuously so you control the movement of the stick and the partner though blending and guiding of the movement.
