Shoulder Health and Progressive Muscle-Up Workshop
Sat, 29 April 2017, 8:30 AM – 12:30 PM EDT
The shoulder joint is one of the most common areas of the body prone to injury due the complexity of its design and mobility available to it. The variety of exercises used to strengthen the shoulder and the muscles around it are abundant, but none more versatile and impressive than the strict muscle-up. When performed correctly and with strict form it can be an excellent exercise to develop strength and flexibility in the shoulder complex and as an upper body push-pull combination.
