Arm Bar Stretch Shoulder Mobility Drill – Stick Mobility Exercise

Arm Bar Stretch Shoulder Mobility Drill – Stick Mobility Exercise


Hey guys! Today we’re going to show
you a nice little stick arm bar. This could be nice prep work, good
activation for kettle bell, arm bar or for as an active warm up to open up the chest,
the shoulders, the oblique slings. You’re going to turn on the core.
We’re already set in position. What you want to make sure is the stick goes
into a wall and that it is above the waist. Somewhere between like waist and
rib cage will be a good place. And then arms straight up over the chest,
just a little bit straighter. You’re gonna grip the outside and then you’re gonna be somewhere between 40 and 60% push. So you guys start pushing and then
let’s go through our five reps here. So watch as they’re gonna take the leg, they’re gonna
reach across and then they’re gonna take their body and roll into as far as their hips and
chest can take them and get this nice stretch. They hold for five seconds and
then push themselves out. You gotta get the core to help work to
create the movement. Then we get this nice stretch coming through here while
we activate it, pushing forty to sixty percent. And then that active push back, so now it works that energy that was stored up in that push back, so we get again stronger through the oblique
sling, through our core, and through our shoulder. So a couple things happen, a nice big stretch, and some good activation to prep it for
whatever you’re gonna do after. In this case I just watched that motion, it’s usually
good just about five reps, five-second hold. and like I said, good 40 to 60 percent push,
hold that stretch. You can also bring in cervical by looking up at the hand, and then it’s going to work
a little bit more in those areas. So try this out, give it a shot, active warm up
activation drill before kettle bell get ups. Good job fellas!
