Prone Shoulder Mobility Drill

This exercise was recently introduced to me by Melbourne Calisthenics owner Alex Jenkins who incorporates it into his calisthenics warm up drills.   I have previously performed this drill standing, however lying prone is another great way as it requires you to focus more so on the shoulders due to limiting any potential help through the spine and hips.

For those of you with shoulder complaints, please consult with your osteopath before trying this out.  For those of you who are looking to try this out, please start slowly.  A wider grip makes it easier than a more narrow grip.
