Fixing shoulder pain

One of my biggest weaknesses is mobility. I like to think I do a good job at mobility, but, in reality, I’m not the greatest. I’m getting better though. That should at least count for something.

Since mobility is my weakness, there’s no one better to go to than the man of mobility himself, Kelly Starrett. I’ve linked to one of his pages in a past post, but Mr. Starrett deserves a special tribute.

I have terrible external rotation in my shoulders. It hurts and I don’t like it. But, this needs improved because I believe that it affects my ability to perform chest to bar. Obviously, this is not okay.

Kelly Starrett offers a great video to help with external rotation using only a lacrosse ball. I’ve done it, and I love it- no matter how bad it may actually hurt. They always say, “no pain, no gain.” If that’s the case, I’m definitely gaining.

Enjoy the video and…

Let’s get energized!!!!
