A shoulder opener the dragon's tail for me is filed under theme and variation as there are many cool upside-down-on-the-pole-split poses.
I really like to be facing the pole with my bottom hand straight out in front of me as opposed to it being more on the side but I suspect that is because of my shoulders.
On the first demonstration I mistakenly say to wrap your arm around the pole when I mean your body, that should be quite obvious on the video though.
This is one of those that I did not feel safe trying to do on the other side, so while I felt comfortable enough to put on shoes and shoot the tutorial I did not feel that it was a good idea to test my shoulder at this time.
I offer private lessons right here in this room. Get in touch with me today.
This is the stargazer pole dance hold. It's a great upright trick that can be done low on the pole or a poler can climb up high and strike a pose with an element of danger.
There are four rotator cuff muscles. This shows how to work two of them: subscapularis and rhomboids/teres minor. The rhomboids are not technically part of the rotator cuff which is the supraspinatus, infraspinatus, subscapularis, and teres minor. The rhomboids help with posture and shoulder stability just like the 4 rotator cuff muscles. When rotator cuff or stabilizer muscles are used for motion other than stabilization it creates serious problems and can be very painful for the shoulder. Eventually injury or impingement causes too much pain to ignore. That's when exercises like these can help correct issues, build strength to eliminate pain and hopefully stop further damage.
