On Saturday morning while Ava was napping I did the Core Cardio T-25 workout dvd at home.
Sweat was dripping off of my face and my heart was pumping. I loved it. I enjoyed this workout so much more then the core speed workout I did the other day. I didn’t have to make any modifications for my shoulder and I was extremely happy!
The balance planks were my favorite.
I can already feel my shoulder getting stronger each day and I am not far away from being able to do more pushups and heavier weights!
After I completed that workout. I did some of my physical therapy exercises. All of these exercises are helping to stabilize my shoulder.
This first one is done with resistance tubing. you keep your arm extended straight over head, you lift your shoulder up slightly and let your arm fall back just a little so you feel it in your serratus anterior muscle. Since my injury, my shoulder blades have been winging out a bit so I am fixing it by strengthening the serratus muscle.
The second exercise is a wider row.
With this row you stop once your elbow is by your side. Again your are activating the serratus muscle.
Starting my morning with this workout made me feel so productive! I am hoping to keep up with these quick T-25 workouts on the days I am not teaching classes. I love the convenience of doing them at home and also the fact that they are only 25 minutes!
