Moving weights quickly, being able to do lots of standard pull ups and muscle ups, squatting a lot, etc. is all great, but can you apply the strength gained in those to a more real world thing like climbing a wall?
This week I want to share with you a series of movements I use with athletes when they have a difficult time getting the barbell comfortably on their back to do back squats.
There are many moving parts putting a barbell into a back rack position. You have to have sufficient thoracic spine mobility, you need some scapular motion, and you need shoulder joint external rotation.
This week learn a closed chain scap press drill to improve upward rotation and elevation of the scapula
This week, Dan Pope from Fitness Pain Free joins me to show a self thoracic rotation mobilization
The front rack position is very challenging for many athletes, especially when they are new to olympic lifting. Sometimes the shoulders are stiff, sometimes the wrists are stiff, but we also have to consider the coordination of relaxing the right things at the right time.
