Rotate your thumbs up during the W part. Make sure that your elbows are 90 degrees bent and in line with the shoulders. Do not lift the entire upper body. Only lift the elbows and hands.

First reach out towards the front to elevate the scapula then lift the hands up towards the ceiling. On the way back stop with your elbows in line with the shoulders. Lift your elbows and hands up towards the ceiling here as well. Keep your chest on the floor at all times.

Start by internally rotating your arms so the back rounds and the pinky fingers touch the floor. Then externally rotate the arm, squeeze your shoulder blades together in the back, look up towards the ceiling and engage the whole back lifting the upper body of the floor. Open your legs slightly for this exercise.

Isolate the movement into the arms only. The rest of the body stays tight and immobile. Quick, small and dynamic circles to wake the shoulders up and get them ready.

Keep your forehead on the floor and interlock your fingers behind your head.

Feet shoulder width apart. Keep your head in a neutral position.

Keep your elbow locked and place the palm of your hand flat against the wall. Play with different angles until you find the one that works for you!

Push arms into floor. Lower stomach stays on floor. Use back muscles ro raise and pull head back. Shoulders down!

Hips & shoulders parallel to the floor. Posterior pelvic tilt. Hips over back knee.

Heels as close as possible to the hips. Work on lengtheniing the spine not pulling down but towards the front.

Heel is as close as possible towards the hips. Straight knee is fully locked. Do not rotate your upper body. Stay in line and simply bend towards the side.

Gently stretche the wrist back into the opposite direction that you just worked on.
