Cat-Cow and Peek Around the Barrel: two spinal mobility exercises good for improving flexibility throughout the entire spine.
Here are 4 more Core Stabilization Exercises that are a little more advanced than the previous 6 exercise videos we posted earlier this fall. Please be sure that you are able to perform the Level One Core Exercises that we posted previously without difficulty before you attempt these new exercises. And remember that all exercises should be pain-free. Never push through pain or you might be creating injury! We have recommended starting with 8 repetitions of each exercise during the first several weeks. You may then perform 2 sets of 8 or rotate through the series twice resulting in 2 sets of 8.
Melinda filmed these videos for US Figure Skating, and she thought they would be useful for the general public. They consist of 2 forms of a bridging exercise and 3 balance exercises that are progressive in difficulty. All 6 exercises are aimed at increasing knee, hip and core strength and stability.
We’ve just created a new collection of videos with taping techniques. It includes corrective and supportive taping techniques for the hip, knee, and foot/ankle. Coming soon: ankle taping.
These rotator cuff stabilization exercises are a more functional way to strengthen your shoulder to both heal and prevent rotator cuff injury. All movement must be performed without increased discomfort to be safe and effective.
