Arm, Chest and Shoulder Exercise With Books

shoulder exerciseHere is a shoulder exercise that I have taught for years in yoga classes using yoga blocks. With foam blocks it is very easy. With cork blocks, a little less so. With books, well…

I recently started teaching live yoga classes online and in yesterdays class when I wanted to teach this shoulder exercise I realized that most people aren’t going to have four blocks in their house so I made the mistake of telling people to go and grab books. And then I am a bigger mistake by telling them to get big heavy books for a challenge.

It didn’t go so well. I used the same books yesterday for this shoulder exercise but I wasn’t able to pull it off. When I added the fourth book it slipped and fell about 30 seconds into the last round.

Oh well.

Enjoy the video. And maybe you want to make one of your own.
