1-minute Bicycle Arms
Individual Flexibility Exercises • 1m 14s
If you work at a desk job, most likely your shoulders will be tight from the hours of sitting at a desk over a computer.

Bicycle arms is an excellent exercise that will not only loosen muscles but will help you develop strength and endurance.

Rotate the club forward as if you were peddling a bicycle with your hands and arms, taking your shoulders through full range of motion.
Rotate forward for 8 to 10 repetitions and then rotate back for 8 to 10 repetitions.
