Shoveling snow is an inevitable reality for just about everyone in the Midwest. Fortunately it doesn’t hit St. Louis often and generally not in large quantities.
Yet, once every few years we will get dumped on and it is critical to know how to shovel snow efficiently or you may find yourself hurting in a bad way.

This video highlights some technical awareness points for shoveling snow. Hopefully it will help you make the task a solid exercise and avoid a significant injury.

Shoulder Pain Fix – Part 2

What Does My Shoulder Need?

Just like a car needs attention regarding gas, oil, and alignment, the body needs attention regarding balance and correction of joints, muscles, AND movement/posture. Neglecting one breaks the efficiency loop!

The previous post discussed the importance of driving blood flow to the shoulder muscles with “mashing”. But without taking it a step further, we are missing the idea of creating change to complete a healing cycle and change the system toward stability.

This video discusses the importance of stretching or mobilizing after the mashing sequence. There are many stretches, but these two will get just about everything you need in the shortest amount of time.
