|Forehead to W||8x||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.|
|Straight to W||8x||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.|
|Back Extensions||8x||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 sligthly for this exercise.|
|Arm Circles||10x each direction||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.|
|Elbow Lifts||8x||Keep your forehead on the floor and interlock your fingers behind your head.|
|Wrist Warm Up||As needed||Stretch your wrists on the floor in all possible directions.|
