Agreed, the beginning explanation a bit long, but the exercises are very practical to integrate with weight lifting.

I love this video, weather I was working a desk job or nursing my twins, I would be hunched over all day, and my upper body would get tight and painful. This video really allowed me to open up my upper body, the moves are simple enough that I would take my resistance band to work, and would stretch out at my work station. Before long, co-workers would come over and ask to borrow my band, and they would stretch out as well.

I do this frequently to loosen shoulders

Have major injury-related knee problems so do seated on couple blocks add prelude to the also-fantastic mogul muncher

Combined they are 25 minutes of heaven

I'm a senior male who needs to loosen up "big time".
I'm sure that wouldn't be the case if I had stayed with yoga 40 yrs ago.
Unfortunately I turned to sport.
I have chosen this as my "go to" yoga exercise.
My pile of blocks is shrinking as quads and feet lengthen.
Great for upper body - esp. shoulders.
This is a perfect prep to enter the yoga world.
Thanks again Michelle,

I found i have a week left shoulder this series of movements made me focus on that. The stretches were wonderful and the flow was relaxing as well as strengthening. As of today I think I will be implementing this set at least 3 times a week.
