Shoulder mobility is an essential component of good human movement and effective training programs. If we are training the upper body to pull and push in multiple planes through a full range of motion, shoulder mobility is a necessity.

What is Active Shoulder Support?
Active shoulder refers to a position of the body at which the bones of the upper extremities stack up evenly over each other to provide a structural support overhead, while the midline (spine) of the body stays braced and locked down by the rib cage. It is indicated by the following:

  • Elbows locked out and shoulders shrugged up
  • Actively and continually applying upward pressure
  • Braced belly with a closed rib cage
  • Shoulder angle open with arms directly above the mid foot, bi-secting the hip and knee in the frontal plane
