Trunk Stability II

These are dedicated to Kathy, who has had an excellent recovery following a car accident, and who always brings a cheerful smile to the clinic.

Begin with tubing anchored to a solid object.  Stand with arms out to the sides at shoulder level gripping the tubing.  Rotate your arms upward with the elbows bent, then rotate back down so that fists face the anchor, keeping elbows at shoulder level the entire time.

Next face the anchor and pull both arms backward toward your hips.  Hold 3 seconds and return to starting position.  Repeat until tired, and add one repetition!

Now pull the theraband as if you are rowing a boat.   Pull up to the armpits, hold 2 seconds, then relax the arms again.  Repeat until your arms are tired, and add one repetition!
