Cheat Sheet to Shoulder Health & Vitality

By Sakthi_CML

This is Part 3 to Shoulder Girdle Part 1 and Shoulder Girdle Part 2, a cheat sheet to shoulder health and vitality.
What should you take away from this series on the shoulder girdle?
Healthy shoulders girdles are vital to your shoulder health and all things CrossFit.
Your posture and position are vital to develop healthy shoulders when: strict pressing, push jerking, split jerking, overhead squatting, back squatting, front squatting, and doing handstand push-ups, pull-ups, etc.
How can we develop healthy shoulders? Develop posture and position in the shoulder girdle by developing the musculature surrounding the joint through strict pull-ups….not chin over the bar pull-ups, but strict pull-ups that maintain a neutral spinal position, eyes focused ahead, shoulders retracted.
Why do pull-ups this way? It develops that rhomboids and lower traps that allow for a stronger core when again…doing all things CrossFit: strict pressing, push jerking, split jerking, overhead squatting, back squatting, front squatting, doing handstand push-ups, etc.
Should I be aware of my shoulder posture when I’m lifting? Yes. Again, a healthier shoulder girldle = stronger core stability = stronger lifts.
Developing posture and position in the shoulder girdle while doing all things CrossFit can increase your overall core stability and strength, while reducing the rate of shoulder injuries.
