Here's our last video in our four part shoulder series: Integration.
Many of us spend so much time sitting, driving, texting that we're constantly in a hunched-forward position. This places our shoulders in a rounded position causing dysfunction when we try to lift overhead or perform pull ups.
We've already established how fragile the shoulder is, and that most injuries happening in CrossFit are shoulder related. Most of these can be avoided by simply following the rule of mechanics, consistency, and then intensity but, if my shoulders are rounded all-day it's a losing battle.
What you do for the other 23 hours in the day can and will affect the hour you spend working out. Spend less time sitting hunched forward looking at your computer and more time standing tall with shoulders pulled back.
