For the majority of my athletic career, I neglected shoulder mobility...guess I just never took it seriously; figured I could just get by without it.

All of that changed in 2015 when I started competing on the NBC show, American Ninja Warrior.

I quickly realized that with all the hanging & swinging movements I was doing in training, my shoulders were garbage; literal trash.

After my first season of the show, I immediately went in for surgery.

Six painful months of sleeping on the couch & physical therapy every single day gave me an appreciation for shoulder health I’d never had before.

I say all of that to say this...

Mobility must be at the foundation of all you in both training & competition.

It reduces your risk of injury, makes you stronger, & will add YEARS to your career.

Mobility equals resiliency.

Since getting that surgery & dedicating a substantial amount of time to shoulder mobility, they’re stronger & more resilient now than ever before.

Over the next 4 weeks, I’m going to lead you through mobilizing & strengthening all six major functions of the shoulder.

This will be one of the best investments you’ve ever made in your training or athletic pursuits!

FAQs
Why is there a mobility and strength section within each week?
Studies have proven that to create lasting mobility, you must add a strength and stability component following the mobilization work. Because of this, you will always start with mobility then a strength workout to immediately follow.
What are the major functions of shoulder mobility that we'll focus on?
Flexion, Extension, Abduction, Adduction, Internal Rotation, External Rotation
What if I don't have equipment used in an exercise?
There are only a few exercises where I’m using equipment that you may not have access to; like a dumbbell or band. I encourage you to get creative with what you have! Maybe you have a soup can or laundry detergent bottle...find a way! If not, just use your bodyweight :)
Can I sub in different exercises?
Sure. You are welcome to modify exercises to meet your fitness level or to work around an injury.
