The shoulder is a very mobile area of the body – one of the most mobile joints we have. It can move in multiple directions including up, down, back, forward and various forms of rotation. Take a moment or two to move your arm and shoulder around and explore just what type of range of motion you have in yours. Chances are, it’s not as much as you may want.
Why is this so? Because we don’t generally access all of the ranges our shoulders can make. We spend a lot of our day with our arms forward and rotated inwardly to do many tasks such as typing, texting, eating driving and so on. When the body doesn’t use all that it is capable of, it loses the ability to do so
Not only is the shoulder very mobile, it is also capable of being very strong; think hanging from a bar/branch etc or pushing and pulling heavy objects. We also need the shoulders to be stable. So the focus will be to work on all three aspects - mobility, strength and stability
