Tune-Up Tuesday Episode 41: Prone Shoulder CARs

Controlled Articular Rotations (CARs) have been one of the best things since slice bread.  The crazy part is there is nothing magical about them.  CARs simply are movements that we do that force us to challenge our end ranges of motion allowing us to improve our joint health, improve our bodily control, and help us assess our bodies. 

Also, CARs can be done in numerous ways.  If you can move your joint from said position, you can challenge your range of motion in a number of ways. 

One of my favorite ways to challenge shoulder range of motion is by doing my shoulder CARs from the prone (lying on your stomach) position.  

Check out the video below to learn how.

Tune-Up Tuesday Episode 27 - Shoulder Warm-Up

The shoulder is an area that many people struggle with.

It is the most mobile joint in the body. The joint in itself doesn't have much inherent stability; otherwise your arm wouldn’t be able to move around as freely as it does.

This makes it important for us to optimally warm up and strengthen our shoulders. This joint depends on a strong rotator cuff as well as other shoulder muscles to support it during physical activity.

Check out the video below for 3 ways to optimally warm up your shoulders during your next workout.
