Some well-honed physiques are currently on display at the Olympic Games in London, and it’s fascinating to see how each sport’s demands craft different strengths (and let’s be honest, imbalances too) in the competing athletes. Kendra wrote earlier this week about her experiences as a synchronized swimmer and the inherent challenges in keeping the shoulder in balance. Check out this Yoga Tune Up® pose called Pranic Bath below (and on the Quick Fix for Shoulders video) that will systematically stretch and tone the many muscles of your shoulders, elbows and wrists to keep the joints integrated and fully functional, no matter what your sport!
