Training Tip of the Month
“You need to be training the multiple functions of your rotator cuff for optimal shoulder health.”
Rotator cuff injuries are far too common amongst recreational gym goers and athletes. Your rotator cuff is made up of four different muscles and has three major functions:
1. Externally rotate your shoulder
2. Internally rotate your shoulder
3. Keep the ball centered in the socket of your shoulder during dynamic movements
Learning how to train all three of these functions will help promote optimal shoulder function. Take a look at the three videos below and start incorporating these exercises into your training each week!
Shoulder External Rotation
Shoulder Internal Rotation
Injuries from our past can sometimes come back to haunt us as we start new activities or exercise programs. This doesn’t mean these aches and pains should be something you live with or prevent you from doing what you want. Eric is a great example of someone who understood that he needed to make changes to his workout routine and learn better ways to move his body to allow him to get back on the golf course consistently and continue improving his game.

HOW TO SET A KID UP FOR LONG-TERM ATHLETIC SUCCESS . 👆We need to do a better job putting our kids in positions to have longer, healthier, more enjoyable, and more successful athletic careers. . Unfortunately, the long-term athletic development model is flawed in the United States. . This flawed system has been influenced in a variety of ways. I'll list just a few: . ▪️Showcases and AAU teams turning youth athletics into big business . ▪️Parents fear of their kids falling behind and missing out on a potential college scholarship . ▪️The thought that playing one sport all year will make you a better athlete in the long-run . Instead we need to do a better job of: . 1️⃣ Promoting playing multiple sports . 2️⃣ Encouraging more play with less structure . 3️⃣ Setting a Positive Example . 4️⃣ Teaching about hard work and responsibility . If you're a coach, parent, or teacher, please tag and share with anyone who needs to hear this ! . #pptma #youthsports #youthathletics #longtermathleticdevelopment #kidssport #injurypreventiontraining #trainsmart #strengthandconditioning #sports #hardwork #highschoolsports #collegesports #ncaa #siranitraining #longtermsuccess
