This is a series on exercises that will give you the biggest bang for your exercise buck in and outside of the gym. Today’s exercise is forearm wall slides.

You should do this because–  if you hoist weights overhead, you need the shoulder mobility to do this without other body parts compensating. For example, the lower back.

Furthermore, this exercise reinforces good posture, which is helpful if you have a sedentary job.

Makes your everyday life easier because– when your shoulder blades move as intended overhead, it helps keep your shoulders healthy and pain free.

Form tips –Slowly slide forearms up the wall until elbows are fully extended and arms resemble a Y. Be careful not to over arch your lower back and slowly return to the starting position. Repeat for eight repetitions.
