Today we will be focusing on a pre-workout exercise called the ‘Parallel Arm Shoulder Stretch’!
This warm-up exercise is great for stretching the shoulder muscles in general, but it also stretches the supraspinatus and infraspinatus muscles that are used so regularly in table tennis.
Fitness Goal: try and perform 2 sets of 2 reps each, with a short break between sets to rest your shoulder muscles
note: 1 rep = completing both Step 1 +2 shown in the video!
Tip: make sure you don’t overstretch whilst doing this exercise. Try to pull lightly with your free arm, and don’t use brute force; you should never feel pain when performing this exercise.
