    Been enjoying the series on hip mobility, I have just one quick question if I may…what is the significance of the Palm inversion and raise in the child pose series? It is muchore challenging than I thought it would be, I would like to understand what stretch that is initiating? Thank you and keep the posts coming!! Andy. Lincoln, U.K.

      Hi Andy. Thanks for your comment.

      Palm inversion? Do you mean the first movement which is shoulder external rotation and supination?

      The whole movement series is designed to work the anterior muscles. You can just raise your arm palm down as well but palm up adds a different rotation which may be a neural restriction or just a different muscular position causing restriction.
