Shoulder Pain During Pull Ups

This past weekend I was in Boston, MA and NYC for a few workshops and I stopped by Champion PT and Performance to see a few good friends, including Dr. Dan Pope from Fitness Pain Free.

A common issue and complaint that comes up is 'my shoulder hurts during pull ups', and more specifically during the bottom part of the pull up or when pulling out of the bottom position.

In this post, we cover common reasons why that happens and what to do about it.

A Better Way to 'Stretch' Your Pecs

The way to stretch the pecs statically is pretty straightforward. You can simply perform a door stretch.

However, static stretching doesn't always make lasting change. When stretching the pecs, you likely want to keep the range of motion you are gaining.

With that in mind, there's a 'better way to stretch'. And that 'better way' isn't necessarily the stretch itself, but rather a way to address multiple aspects of the muscle.

Specifically, we want to do some soft tissue work on the pecs, a stretch with reps, and then some loaded movement.

This way we get the muscle tension to decrease with the soft tissue work, we put the muscle under tension and longer lengths with the stretch, and we train the overall range of motion with some loaded movement.

The Best Thoracic Mobility Routine

This week on Movement Fix Monday I want to bring a lot of pieces together to make the best thoracic mobility routine.

I commonly show a certain way to tweak a lift or a way to think about movement or a specific drill.

What gets lost in doing that, though, is how do you bring a lot of those pieces together. How do you blend and incorporate everything?

What I wanted to do this week was show you how I combine multiple drills for the upper back aka thoracic spine into a routine. This could either be done as a daily routine if you need work in this area or it could be done for 5 minutes during your warm up before lifting.
