“New” Way to Address Shoulder Stabilization
Check out Joe Arko‘s take on stabilizing the shoulder.
Got Tuesday night's #TeamTraining crew alternating single-arm figure eights and and #windmills for #core and #shoulder stabilization. Go check out @joe_arko on the awesomeness that is the single arm #KB figure eight, which he posted aboot last week. #haddadtraining #corporatewellness #corporatebootcamp #bootcamp #smoothjams #icantgoforthat #icangoforthismove #fitness #exercise #kettlebells #warehouse
Shoulder 101: Walking DB Figure 8Today's tips is a shoulder stability exercise called the Walking DB Figure 8. Setting up a cone/KB or whatever you have available about 6-8 feet apart, hold a dumbbell straight over head. Make sure to keep the arm extended and straight through the exercise. With a brisk walk and quick rotations, figure 8 your way through the cones/KB. The rotations will cause a shift in the DB and the shoulder will have to STABILIZE the DB through the movement.Give it a try and let me know what you think!

It’s a unilateral (one-sided) mix of farmer’s carry and Turkish getup, forcing the core to stabilize or shoulders beware. Go for time or for laps. Start with a weight that is less than half of your overhead press weight.
