Today I feature an unconventional training method that can really strengthen and rehabilitate one of the most complicated and heavily worked joints in the body, the shoulder.
Bottoms up training is typically used with a #kettlebell, but can easily be adapted for use with #dumbbells and weight plates.
Using this unusual loading technique will shine a spotlight on any weaknesses, assymetries and imbalances you have in stabilising your shoulder, which is likely to lead to shoulder injuries down the track if not addressed.
Some of the many benefits include; ☞ Corrects movement patterns and lifting mechanics
☞ Teaches optimal recruitment patterns through stabilisation of the scapula
☞ Improved co-ordination and motor control
☞ Increased stability and functional strength

I recommend incorporating them into your #warmup or #accessory work for a healthier, better functioning shoulder
