How to Help Prevent Shoulder Injuries

Preventing Shoulder Injuries is never a guarantee no matter how much you prepare; however, there are ways to train the shoulder joint and muscles to help minimize the risk of injuries.

The shoulder is a joint, held together by tendons, ligaments and the rotator-cuff muscles, that can potentially move in any direction. However, many of us have either limited range of motion or are too mobile in certain directions, and therefore, the need to strengthen and stabilize those ranges of motion is essential.

In this video we go over four tips to help you build better shoulders to increase strength, mobility and prevent shoulder injuries.

They include:
Mobility exercises
External rotation
Unilateral training
Grip perturbations (active stabilization)
