Make sure that your scapular retractors and external rotators are strong. 9 times out of 10 a shoulder problem is somewhat due to a weakness in these muscles.[/quote]
I always try to do 1 or 2 sets of external rotations during my workouts. i am not very strong at the movements, but i am trying to increase my ROM and make sure i do every rep well. I also do TONS of back work, and probably do more back work than i do bench work.
As for scapular retractors- How do i strengthen them? Do u have a link or some exercises i can add to my workouts?
As for an “update” on what i posted before. I tried out the things for the serratus anterior, and i think i am doing them correct (just an up-down movement right?). These i am okay with. The Prone Internal rotations- NOT so much. i dont know if i am doing the exercise wrong, or if a am just “dead” in that i just dont really feel it too much.
Can anyone help me out with this?
Also, when i do dips, i think that i sorta try to push my self up with my shoulders a bit. Is there a way to prevent this, or is this normal?
Mike- i tried the thing with the dips where u start at the top and finish at the top. I didnt feel any pain i normally feel finishing at the bottom. Thanks alot for this suggestion.
Any more help is appreciated.
Thanks alot for all the help given.
