The shoulder joint has the greatest range of motion than any other joint. It can twist and turn in more ways than it should and it’s probably one that you have a love-hate relationship with. Training lifters and Crossfitters, I know that the shoulders get worked out more than any other joint and see more than their fair share of stress. So, I make it a top priority to make sure my trainees and athletes are familiar with correct patterns of movement, as well as knowing how to stretch and prepare their shoulders for the work that goes into a typical HIIT session.
Shoulder Work Instructional
In the video below, Wade Maselich and I go through a three-step process: we start with an assessment first and some discussion of the fundamental structure of the anatomy of the shoulder, we follow that up with some mobility work and finally we get into stability work. Stability is often neglected because people become so focussed on mobility. That shouldn’t happen.
