Exclamation Sticky Thread Sticky: shoulder bulletproofing: rarely about Rotator Cuff strength

This post started as a discussion about exercises for the rotator cuff as a strategy many folks seems to think helps "bulletproof" one from shoulder injury. This approach speaks to a misunderstanding it seems of the mechanics of the shoulder and where injury in the shoulder generally begins. ...

Hurt upper back lifting bar out of home made squat rack

Let me start off with the obvious: making your own squat rack isn't neccessarily the brightest idea. Well I bought two saw horses and used them as a squat rack. The problem is that the saw horses are way too low to lift the bar out cleanly, so I had a very low and awkward starting position. I think...
