How to Check Your Overhead Shoulder Stability

Hey Throwing Athletes⁣ ⁣

Try this exercise and see how stable your shoulder really is. ⁣ ⁣

This is one of my absolute favorites when it comes to stabilizing the shoulder for overhead activity such as a throw. ⁣ ⁣ You have to rely on grip, shoulder and shoulder blade strength to get the bell overhead without crashing down on your 💀. ⁣ ⁣

AND if you do it right it hits that Serratus Anterior muscle I keep talking about that’s so important!⁣ ⁣

Here’s how you do it. ⁣ ⁣

1️⃣ Turn the kettlebell upside down and hold on tight!⁣

2️⃣ Press straight up as if you’re taking the bell on an elevator completely vertical. ⁣

3️⃣ Hold at the top 3-4 seconds. ⁣

4️⃣ CONTROL the down phase coming back down to your shoulder. ⁣ ⁣

Caution. This is harder than it looks. You’ll be surprised if you haven’t done this one before. ⁣ ⁣

Any questions hit me up. ⁣ ⁣
