Shoulder Stabilization

Just 2-3 seconds after getting into the ‘up’ position of a push up, my arms start shaking. I can tell by the way it feels that this is a shoulder stabilization issue. So far, I’ve come up with the following exercises to help combat this:

Overhead squat
chain suspended push ups
push ups on a swiss ball
walking with DBs held overhead

I plan on doing these exercises as a sort of extra workout several times a week to hopefully combat this issue.

Does anyone know anything else I could do or even shoot me a way to incorporate stabilization into a workout? I am currently doing the Waterbury Method.


Do some stuff with dumbells for a while…
