Shoulder Mobility Work

My shoulders suck.

They just do.  But their suckitude has helped propel me into learning new things so I suppose I should be grateful (in a begrudging old lady sort of way).

My left shoulder impingement syndrome meant I learned how to sumo deadlift.  Hooray! Still one of my favorite lifts.

But my current right shoulder issues forced me to actually be an adult and start doing preventative maintenance so it didn’t keep me from jerking for three months.

Someone recently asked me what I did for shoulder mobility so I made her this video.  This is what I do every day as part of warm up.  Some of it is muscular warm-up, some of it is CARS (controlled articular rotation) of the joint.  It only takes about 5 minutes and I feel like it’s well worth the time.

I also do hanging work (look up the Ido Portal hanging challenge) and scapular shrugs which have helped open up my tight lats and traps.

Nothing fancy, just finally taking the time to make some needed improvements.

    My co-worker just started your Boot Camp coruse at Gainesville College this week and spoke very highly of you. I live in Jefferson and discovered you were also offering this coruse there (I noticed though your prices on this site were for 2010). Are you still at this location, and what would your pricing be today?Thank you

      I don’t think I’m who you’re thinking of. I don’t run a boot camp course nor am I near Gainesville college, but I highly encourage you to pursue one if it sounds interesting to you. Exercise is one of life’s great pleasures when you find something you enjoy 🙂
