As you’ll find out in this assessment, not all shoulder pain/injuries are directly caused by dysfunction in the shoulder.
Instead, issues in the shoulder may actually be caused by a variety of things such as tight lats, tight triceps, and poor thoracic mobility.
If you want to fix your shoulder pain and see if any of these issues apply to you, then check out this brief article explaining exactly how to assess your own shoulder =====> Assess Your Shoulder Health.
Tuesday’s Strength Lesson: A program that was designed for your friend or family member is not optimal for YOU! If you want to see the best results you need an individualized program designed specifically for YOUR needs and goals.
Eric Cressey just released his latest product, The High Performance Handbook, and it’s unquestionably one of the most comprehensive and individualized programs available today.
I was a decent coach and my clients/athletes continued to make significant progress, but when it came to my own training/nutrition everything went out the window.
Despite the knowledge and control that I used with my clients’ programming…when I tried to program for myself I figured, “ah, well I can handle more than they can,” and subsequently gave myself the most intense and restrictive training/nutrition programs possible.
This is extraordinarily common among coaches, trainers, and fitness enthusiasts. They often believe…
– they can handle more than others.
– they have abnormally fast recovery times.
– if they miss a day of training/eat 1 “bad” food/etc they will instantly turn to mush.
…and other things of the sort.
The simple fact of the matter is that none of us – you, me, and the guy curling in the Squat rack – are special.
We are all humans and, for the most part, our bodies all respond the exact same way to variations in training and nutrition.
While it may seem like I’m being a dick (not calling you special and whatnot) this knowledge can be extraordinarily powerful.
Knowing and understanding the intricacies behind SBFS and being able to see when you’re treating yourself like a special butterfly will help to keep you in check.
When you start feeling like you can handle more or you can be more restrictive than others…just remember that you are no different than anyone else. The laws of physics, thermodynamics, movement, etc apply to you just as much as they apply to me, just as much as they apply to guy curling in the Squat rack.
