Releasing the muscles of the hands, arms and shoulders is so beneficial for everyone, without exception. In particular, this class is great if you want to help prevent or heal joint problems such as arthritis or carpal tunnel syndrome, improve performance at the office or in your chosen sport, improve posture or just feel better. As David says, the key is understanding alignment and moving in a way that encourages release and allows you to let go of stress.

Equipment: None

Loved the concentration on stretching - especially the hands. I added the left hand stretches (up, down, and side to side) as you did for the right. I have arthritic pain in the left and was looking forward to this. It was not part of the stretching so I added it. Both feel great. I will do some of these stretches at work. Thank you!

I highly recommend this class for climbers! I have been doing it many time after a day of climbing and it helps so much for stretching tight forearms, shoulders, and back...

Glad I am doing this challenge....as this is the first class I have done with David after 1.5 years with dywm. Will definitely be back for more, as I love your calm voice, clear cues and gentle pace. Thanks for a great class! Love these challenges!!

I love how every instructor on DYWM has their own distinct personality and approach. One of David's strengths is that he often teaches from a PT approach. He's fantastic at giving detailed cues to help you get the most out of his videos while remaining safe. As a bartender and drummer I'm finding this short routine has immeasurable value for my wrists, which I abuse on a daily basis. This video helps me stretch muscles in my hands, arms and shoulders I didn't even KNOW I had which are wayyyyyy too tight. Thanks, David.

Thank-you David, I'm really loving this upper body work. It seems simple but gets at places my desk worn upper back, shoulders, arms and fingers need.
