#4) SHOULDER STABILITY:

The shoulder blade and shoulder must be stable and move properly to ensure proper loading of the shoulder and ability to efficiently swing bars without unnecessary stress on the rotator cuff, labrum, or biceps tendon. See below one of the most effective exercises in training proper gliding and stability of the shoulder.
For more advanced and all-inclusive shoulder strengthening see PERFECT10.0 SHOULDER: FINDING SHOULDER STABILITY coming soon to the PERFECT 10.0 STORE.
