Bow and Arrow


For shoulder rehab

Hold elastic tubing tightly with your left arm extended and your right hand in front of your chest. Keeping your right elbow higher than your right shoulder, pull back on the tubing with your right hand but actually feel the motion lead from your right elbow heading backward. Pull until you are in the fully extended position, as if you were squeezing your shoulder blades together, by pulling both shoulders backward. Your left hand and right elbow should be slightly behind the plane of your shoulders, and you should feel a slight stretch in the chest area. Do 10-12 reps on each side.

Note: If there is discomfort in the shoulder, you may need to slightly drop your elbow as you pull back.
