Shoulder Health

Hey everyone. Over the past week, we have been doing a lot of heavy work and a lot of heavy overhead work (think EMOM Snatches Tuesday). While coaching some of these classes I might have limited some of you to only performing a power snatch instead of the full (I hate saying this, but…) squat snatch. If you recall, which I hope you do, the reason for this limitation was because you lack both thoracic and shoulder mobility. Well, here is a little science bomb for you. 

I can already hear you…  “Hey! G2! This is a video for the Push Press. Where’s the science stuff you were talking about?” Well, if you were a little more patient (just like your Clean and Snatch positions… hmmmm) then at around the 3:55 mark you would have heard Doug talking about the shoulder joint and all that stuff. Patience is a virtue…

    Nice video, very germane to my shoulder situation.

    Also, patience is for those who settle for second place.
