Continuing the work on the shoulders this week, we are adding in movement for the shoulder girdle, specifically the scapulas (shoulder blades). We will then use that new movement and strengthen and challenge our range in shoulder external rotation to help fortify our shoulders and improve their function.
This week, we are working on the shoulders. Poor movement in the shoulders can lead to ligament tears in the rotator cuff, neck pain, and elbow pain. It can also severely limit your ability to press and pull. Try these 2 moves to gain more control in those shoulders.
This week, we are focusing on shoulder mobility and stability. If your shoulders are off-balanced and week, or if you lack range of motion in the rotator cuff and shoulder girdle, your neck and spine will have to do some work to compensate. This can lead to tension in the neck, shoulders, and mid-back.
Try these 2 moves out to gain mobility and strength through the whole shoulder.
