(Nov 11 2016 2:22PM) : I made this document when I first started with Egoscue exercises; though I no longer use it personally (there's an iPhone app instead). BUT... there are some advantages to a NowComment document: more

1. I’ve added tips from my teacher, and from other sites

2. You can see the text descriptions while watching/listening to the video descriptions.

3. You can ask questions or suggest other explanatory additions, note similar excercises and stretches, note any caveats (e.g. if you have injuries then you may want to modify the exercises for your unique situation.

1. Stand facing mirror with your feet pointed straight ahead, hip width apart (big toes 5-6" apart). Place your finger tips into the pad of each hand and point your thumb straight out. 2. This hand position is imperative to the exercise being done correctly. It is called the "golfer's grip". 3. Squeeze your shoulder blades together backwards (no shrug up, no hip forward, no tilting back backwards) and bring your arms straight out (keep elbow locked!) to your sides at shoulder level. 4. With your palms facing downward, circle up and forward for the repetitions specified. Keep should blades pinched! With your palms facing upward, circle up and back for the desired repetitions. Go fast enough so lower back and abs have to work to keep body stable. 5. Remember to keep your feet straight and your shoulder blades squeezed together.
