1. Standing Arm Circles: Helps Restore Upper Body Strength

Standing Arm Circles Egoscue Method

Two sets of 40 repetitions each.

Stand with your feet pointed straight and hip-width apart.

Place your fingertips into the palm of each hand and point your thumbs straight out (this hand position is important for the exercise to be done correctly.)

Pull your shoulders back by squeezing your shoulder blades together, then bring your arms out straight from your sides up to shoulder level.

With palms facing down and your thumbs pointing straight forward, rotate your hands up and forward in approximately six-inch circles. Do twenty reps. 

Then reverse direction: palms should face up, with thumbs pointed straight backward. Rotate your hands up and backward. Do twenty reps.
