Okay so not EVERY bro in the gym has a shoulder problem, but the number is higher than you think. More than half of the complimentary 1-on-1 introductory classes I do there’s always a conversation about previous injuries, and the shoulder is brought up a lot. So why is a shoulder injury more common than people think? Are they derived from sports played previously? Something happen on the job at work? Some of the time, yes, but more often than not people are complaining of shoulder/knee/hip pain and/or injuries because of everyday poor body posture and movement mechanics. If you were never educated on how to properly set your shoulders into the correct spot before lifting something, or how to brace your midline to protect your back when picking something up – how would you go about doing it? That’s where we come in. Don’t get me wrong, I love it when people set new records and hit new personal bests here at the gym – but I’m more excited about how they can take these things we learn in the gym and apply them to life outside of it. Check out the video we made outlining the proper position your shoulders need to be in to lift, or simply just to maintain healthy shoulder function for the long term.
