SHOULDER PAIN? DO THESE.
Shoulder Pain? Do These.
I’ve trained thousands of people in my many years of personal training, and of those thousands I would have to say at least half of them have come to me with a shoulder problem.
Shoulders, in my opinion, are very poorly designed joints.
I mean, we would never build our homes like are shoulders are built.
We would never decide to build an extension onto our porch using just one stud, some duck tape and four wood screws. Mike Holms would have our heads!
But, take a look at our poor shoulders.
One fixed bone, the humerus, free floating in a groove in our scapula, held together by a group of small, and not very powerful, muscles called the rotator cuff, with the assistance of the deltoid, bicep and tricep group.
Add to the mix an extremely powerful muscle group, the lats, pulling outwardly and down on the humeral head and you have yourself a recipe for a home reno catastrophe.
To keep your shoulder from becoming a catastrophe, try this little posture workout.
But, PLEASE if you do have shoulder pain go see your local physiotherapist. They are the best ones to diagnose and to treat your pain (and FYI – they do not require a doctor’s referral).
