Exactly How To Improve Shoulder Mobility

Today I am very excited to bring to you a second episode I did as a guest, on my good friend Chad Vaughn’s phenomenal podcast; The Barbell Mobility Podcast. 

Chad is a two-time Olympic weightlifter, now a phenomenal Olympic weightlifting coach himself and I’ve had the pleasure of working with him for the last six years at Power Monkey Camp.

The last episode was A Step by Step Guide to Improving Flexibility and today will be a masterclass on shoulder mobility issues. 

We explain exactly how you can help athletes of all abilities improve their overhead shoulder flexibility.


We discuss:

  • What are eccentrics and how do they improve flexibility. 
  • The importance of good shoulder mobility and how it relates to shoulder stability.
  • How to tell if it’s a mobility or technical issue.
  • Which muscles cause shoulder flexibility issues?
  • How to improve a squat.
  • Why the repetitive nature of sports makes certain muscles very prone to stiffness
  • Being under a barbell is just like being in a handstand, why training both can improve both.
