In this video, Chris Duffin and Brad Cox fromAcumobilityare at Titan Barbell in Medford, MA working with Strongman Semaj. Semaj had sustained a right shoulder injury that has been negatively impacting his overhead mobility. During assessments, we found that he has poor internal rotation of the shoulder with limited overhead range of motion and restricted trap and pec muscles. Our goal is to provide some corrective strategies to improve end range of motion and stability in the shoulder girdle. We accomplish this through the following progression:
As the founder of a popular movement website I feel it’s my duty to tell you that I want you tolimitthe amount of exercise prep that you perform. Yes, I saidlimityour exercise prep, not do more.

While this trend is very positive over the just ‘grind through the pain’ mentality of the past, there is such a thing as ‘too much’. Just like anything else, people seem to jump right to the “if a little bit is great, then more must be better” approach.
