Prehab your shoulder

12th April 2009

Great article here on some exercises and stretches you can do to avoid injuring (prehab) your shoulder. A lot of people end up with damaged shoulders as they continue exercising due to focusing too much on the bigger lifts and not enough on the support muscles.

I especially like the 3 stretches. Admittedly I haven’t tried the exercises yet, but I will now after reading that doing pullups without working on the shoulders can lead to injury since shoulders are active on your way down.

    Thanks a lot for a great article. After working out, I usually do ‘Stretch #1’, but now I found out several more ways to prehab my shoulder. Personally I feel that stretching before and after a workout is the most important thing because without it, critical damages might occur.
