Band Resisted Shoulder Wall Slides

In the video below you will see one of Principle Four Osteopathy clients performing a band resisted wall slide.  This exercise is performed by placing the band around the wrists and having the individual place their forearms along the wall starting in a W position and then sliding their arms along the wall to form a Y.  The idea is to maintain contact on the wall throughout the movement and work through the full range of motion.  This exercise is a great movement prep, prehab or rehab exercise for working on upper limb shoulder girdle control with low load.
