The original video was over 7 minutes long so I decided it would be best to break it up into 2 videos. The first is called the cradle spin. Many of these moves are foundational meaning they stand alone and can transition into other moves that are more advanced. This particular spin is not a shoulder killer because all your weight is not on your shoulders like many spins. As always listen to your body, if it hurts don't do it.
As I have likely mentioned many places before I am not a huge fan of spins. They can be dangerous if done incorrectly (with bad form) and cause major damage to tendons and ligaments. These take longer to heal than muscles due to their structure. It is much better to prevent the damage than to try to heal it after damage.
Make sure you keep your shoulders back. The easiest way to get there is to stick your chest out.
As usual unless your shoulder is injured, do these on both sides even though you will like one side better than the other.
The rocketman pole hold is a crowd pleaser. It looks like you're floating in mid air and it's easier to do than it looks like it will be. This is one of those few moves that I got the first time I tried it. It is also one that right now I only do on my left side because of my shoulder injury. If your shoulders are both healthy, try it on both sides but as always, listen to your body. This is a move that does not cause extreme pain so if you feel any stop immediately.
