In today’s post CDSF coaches Dan Jones and Mike Sirani go over four yoga push-up variations that will help you improve your overhead shoulder mobility and stability. The yoga push-up is a great exercise to train scapular upward rotation and keep shoulders healthy in overhead athletes and lifters but can be difficult to progress when they become too easy.
The band external rotation is one of the most commonly performed exercises by baseball players on the field and in the gym. It is also one of the most common incorrectly performed exercises.
In the video above I cover two frequently seen mistakes with this exercise and how to correct them in order to make the exercise much more effective.
It’s official. I’m moving back to Upstate New York and will be opening Capital District Sport and Fitness this spring. Creating CDSF has been many years in the works and is something I’ve envisioned since I first stepped into the weight room as a skinny high school freshman back in 2004. I truly believe the gym is one of the most powerful environments there is to promote change. What I used to think of as a place that exists solely to improve your aesthetics and strength now means much more to me.
