I just saw a comment on one of my daily YouTube videos that shook me.
It’s not that it was particularly scary or outrageous… it just reminded me so much of me.
How do you get huge while nursing your body? Is it even possible?
How do you treat that nagging shoulder/elbow/hip/back/etc but still have fun in the gym?
How do you sweat and make your muscles burn when you feel indefinitely injured?
This post is probably the most existential topic I’ve ever covered. It addresses the questions I’ve been pondering the most for the last decade.
Are you one of those people who likes to do overhead barbell pressing… but has no business pressing a barbell overhead?
How do you get your arms overhead? How do your clients get their arms overhead? Do you have the range of motion to do it safely? Or are you just overloading your back and irritating your shoulders?
I don’t want to sit here and pretend to tell you that I have the magic answer. It doesn’t work like that.
What I CAN offer you, however, is some insight on some of the things that have seemed to work for me… even the things that are a little counterintuitive.
Today we’ll discuss some things that have helped my clients safely perform overhead work.
