Technique Tip - Opposite Side Swim + Shoulder Warm Up!

In the spotlight is a simple skill that can be daunting, especially if your shoulders are tight. Now I'll admit, I never really considered this specific maneuver to be a challenge until I experienced tight shoulders for myself! Ever since I began training my handstands consistently my shoulders have gotten much stronger ... but also tighter.

I call this week's skill Opposite Side Swim. The pathway can lead to an array of shapes and drops hence why it's important to be able to do it with ease. If you also relate to tight shoulders included are a few of my favorite exercises to warm up.
