All work and no play does indeed make Jack (or Jill 😉) a dull boy.
Tap ❤️ if wish to kiss this Friday!
How many of you don't do at least do one of the following on a Friday?
•Have that drink you swore not to have #gin#vodka#beer#lager .
•Have that #takeaway you promised not to have
If you do neither and head straight for the gym then you have focus 😁
Shoulder Series - Part 6: Motor Control Exercise - T’s and Y’s Progression⠀
Once you have good mobility, it’s is imperative that we practice the right movement patterns. When you do something to improve the mobility of a joint or joints, you’ve affected the nervous system to allow for improved range with decreased perceived threat (nociception). According to Gray Cook, this is called a “Reset” - much like resetting the computer (Windows Vista days 😵) when whatever software had an error. But if you don’t address the error in the software, when you re-run the program, it will likely crash again!⠀
So we must load a new software in our nervous system - to relearn a movement pattern that won’t revert back to the same movement that was associated with your pain. Gray Cook calls it “Reloading”.⠀
In this video, I am demonstrating a good scapular and rotator cuff motor control exercises. They are often called the T’s and the Y’s because the position of your arms resemble those letters.⠀
1️⃣ T’s and Y’s with palms facing down⠀
2️⃣ T’s and Y’s with thumbs facing up⠀
3️⃣ T’s and Y’s with 5# DBs⠀
Because this is a long lever movement, you will feel the burn even with a very light weight or no weight! Try these and let me know what you think!⠀
