I have been trying to integrate Snatch Grip High Pulls into my Strength Skills circuit but I’ve been experiencing a lot of shoulder pain. It’s hard for me to tell but it seems like the pain is in my joint - on top of my shoulder nearer the front. It also hurts the most when I’m dropping the weight.
Unfortunately, I’m not at a gym where I can just drop the weight, but most videos don’t show people dropping the weight on a SGHP anyway. But that just seems odd to me. I’m using a lot of muscles to get that weight high. If I just let gravity take it away, won’t the weight just wrench my arms down? Am I supposed to be using other muscles to slow the descent?
