Improve Your Shoulder Strength and Mobility
Here's a great article from Boxrox about 7 great exercises for shoulder strength and mobility.
Every day I work with many individuals who are experiencing pain, discomfort or experiencing a significant restricted range of motion. Integrating manual therapy modalities of Active Release Techniques (ART), NeuroMuscular (NMT), Active Isolated Stretching (AIS), Trigenics (extremely effective for frozen Shoulder and Piriformis Syndrome) and the Neil Asher Technique for Frozen Shoulder but very beneficial for all types of shoulder pain and dysfunction.
Exercise is a cornerstone of our health but we must take care of our physical health, preventing future injury pain and holistic yet focused manual therapy treatment, is an important factor in long health. Any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me at 859-802-0448. Andy Shetterly
OVERHEAD AND SHOULDER MOBILITY TEST
“Good overhead positioning is obviously crucial in CrossFit. This is a great exercise/test to see how your overhead positioning is. With good spinal alignment, straight arms and the hands blocked by the barbell (as shown in the video). Actively raise the hands off the barbell maintaining the same arm and spinal position and try to hold for 30 seconds. Athletes with poor overhead positioning will struggle with this, probably more so than in the video.” John Singleton.
