My Shoulder Hurts: The Finest Whine
Sun’s Out/Guns Out Memorial Day everyone!
Given that it IS a holiday – and the unofficial start of summer – I actually had every intention of NOT posting a blog today, and instead, do nothing but get my lift on and then follow that by eating copious amounts of dead animal flesh and high-fiving any serviceman (or woman) that I happen to cross paths with.
While I’m still going to do those things, it just so happens that my latest article on T-Nation went live, so I actually have some content to share today afterall. Holla!
It’s about shoulders and how to go about taking better care of them. Trust me: if you’re someone who takes the iron game seriously, and subsequently tends to have shoulders that routinely feel like they’ve been put through a meat grinder, this article is for you.
Pretty Much the Best Article on Shoulder Health Ever Written**

Dan PopeNice article Tony, do you guys place a lot of emphasis on improving GIRD and posterior capsule tightness at your facility?

TonyGentilcoreWe do. 2-3 years ago we were all about sleeper stretches, etc. While we still utilize them, we're in the mindset now that the LESS we crank on someone's shoulder, the better. To that end, we look at things like breathing patterns, scap stability, pec minor, etc.

TonyGentilcoreThat may be more of a topic for my girlfriend to elaborate on than myself. Not a huge wine drinker personally.....;o)

Bo BolandGood article Tony. I've been wrestling with a terrible shoulder for awhile now, and just moved to "full time" rehab-mode, because I can't stand it anymore. Poor T-spine mobility, very poor external shoulder rotation = a sore sore cuff. I'll incorporate some of these in with the Diesel Crew's shoulder routine, and using a lot of "The Rotater" for stretching/strengthening. P.S. I don't think you directly train him, but next time you see my buddy Matt Hicks in your gym, make him do extra farmer's walks for me.
