Instructions: Move side-to-side while holding the medicine ball. If the medicine ball is too heavy you won’t be able to do this exercise properly without lifting your shoulders, creating excess tension in that area.
Modifications: Perform the exercise without the medicine ball. Cross your arms on your chest and practise moving side-to-side. As you gain strength, add a light weight medicine ball.
EXERCISE DOs and DONTs – As with all exercise programs, when using exercise videos that appear on this site, you need to use common sense. If your muscles are weak, either do the modifications, or don’t attempt this exercise if it’s too difficult for you. When starting an exercise program, be sure to discuss your plans with your healthcare provider
