Shoulder Integrity: Priming And Strengthening Your Shoulders For Performance

Shoulder Integrity: Priming And Strengthening Your Shoulders For Performance

Today I pulled this article from the training archives as I thought it would meet a need if you’re looking for better ways of strengthening your shoulders for movement.

If you experience shoulder pain, discomfort, or stiffness then I thought this article would be a good fit for you. If you’re not experiencing shoulder pain, or stiffness I still think this article would be a good fit for you. If you don’t have those issues then my guess is you certainly don’t want them.

  1. Are you experiencing tightness and immobility in your shoulders? 
  2. Do you experience shoulder pain on a regular basis? 
  3. Are you currently using any exercises to prime your shoulders for movement prior to your training? 
  4. Do you want to learn how to develop and maintain healthy strong shoulders for the long haul? 

Are you looking for a better plan for strengthening your shoulders? When it comes to training these days many people really have to work to prime their bodies before they can even get into the driver’s seat to start doing any work. Since the career world has transitioned to including jobs where sitting has taken precedence over physical activity the need for priming the body for movement is a bigger deal now more than ever.

We can couple this with the fact that technology has also created an entire generation of lazy individuals that have lost a great deal of function in their bodies. This is the case due to many people developing postural imbalances and weaknesses from crouching over and looking at computer screens and handheld devices for the majority of the day. Because of this coaches and trainers have to constantly battle through these issues on a regular basis. Today I want to talk about some ways we can enhance your shoulder integrity and prime and strengthen this mobile joint for other more useful activity compared to just holding and reading your cellphone.

  2. How many pull-ups can you do? 
  3. Are you looking to improve your pull-up performance? 
  4. Are you lost on how to go about mastering a pull-up? 

Improving your pull-up performance is probably one of the most challenging feats of strength you can do when it comes to bodyweight training. Pulling your bodyweight from a dead hanging position from a bar with your arms fully extended requires nothing more than brute strength. You can’t hide from it, you can’t cheat it, and you can’t beat it until you just simply master it.

Execution Of The Agility Ladder

I pulled this article from the archives because the agility ladder can be a powerful tool for you to utilize in your functional fitness, or strength and conditioning program. When it comes to athletic development you must be capable of sprinting with efficient technique and building on your reaction time. 

The agility ladder can be a powerful tool to train your body for these characteristics. This article outlines a few ways you can go about improving your athleticism and fitness. I think you’ll enjoy it. 

I’m a big a believer in sprinting and sprint variation when it comes to conditioning and training the body for performance. In my experience the key to any successful strength and conditioning program involves moving with intention and purpose. As far as fine tuning the gait movement and working towards building on the skills of coordination and reaction time the agility ladder can be a valuable tool for us to employ to achieve this end.
