The “5 Month Side Lying Transition” Exercise To Fix Forward Head and Rounded Shoulders

5 month side lying "transition" exercise

5 month side lying “transition” exercise to fix forward head and rounded shoulders  (scroll down for video)

Let’s take your body back in time to when you were 5 months old and re-awaken your ideal posture and movement patterns, OK?

This “transition” exercise is critical for training your shoulder blades to automatically go to their optimal position for:

  • Less neck tension (and less headaches)
  • Better shoulder “ball and socket” alignment (helps with tendonitis, bursitis, impingement syndrome, etc)
  • Overall more organic, upright, regenerative posture!

  1. It’s amazing that by doing this just a few times my neck/shoulder feels ‘released’.
    Very interested in the session you referred to!
    Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge!

  2. Thanks Steve,

    I love the dynamic neuromuscular stimulation. concept. After all, as babies we transitioned from lying on our backs to eventually standing upright without the use of any barbells, resistance bands, cables, etc.
    I believe the movement you are demonstrating also provides significant stimulation to the vestibular system.
