Getting your clients to understand shoulder stabilisation in quadruped

shoulder-stabilisationDo you struggle getting your pre/postnatal clients to understand shoulder stabilisation when performing hands and knees exercises in your classes?


Do you find yourself having to get ‘hands-on’ quite frequently to ‘hold’ their shoulders down, away from their ears when they do a simple ‘arm float’ to the front, or ‘opposite arm to leg’ movement from quadruped?


I’ve worked with over 1,000 pregnant and postnatal women, so let me share a very quick, simple, effective tip to help you:

a) keep your clients’ shoulders in the right position, and

b) aid your clients’ understanding of what the shoulders should fell like to be in the correct alignment


Watch this short 3 minute video I shot live on my Facebook Page, where I share one very tiny modification you can use which will assist you with both elements mentioned above.


Technique is key when teaching the pregnant and postnatal client, and it’s important to instil good habits from the outset when training them…


…because ultimately, the reasons they can’t hold their shoulder in place to start with is because they lack the strength, mobility and good alignment in everyday settings.


That’s where you help bridge the gap.
