Video Transcription

0:00 Lying on your back, keep the shoulders set and raise the arm above your head. Slowly, lower the arm down to the side, ensuring the arm is moving the shoulder blade is staying still. As you get stronger, allow the arm to come lower down by the side. This will add extra weight to the exercise and make the muscles around the shoulder work hard. Keep the back relaxed at all times and just breathe slowly.
00:38 Sitting, leaning back on a bed, with the arm raised above the head, and the shoulder blades set. Slowly lower the arm down, ensuring that the shoulder does not move. As the arm comes lower, the weight will increase on the muscles around the shoulder. Only lower the arm to the point where you can still keep the shoulders under control and do not allow the shoulder blade to raise up.
