Social media is a fantastic tool

 

There are so many great trainers out there that you have a wealth of information at your finger tips

 

Unfortunately the key is to decipher the messages out there

 

Will they help, hinder or are they just pointless?

 

One of the things I see a lot of is the type of post which says something like “if it hurts when you overhead press then do this exercise instead

 

On the surface not a bad message

 

But mon ami

 

Here is the thing

 

If it hurts lifting overhead, then find out why

 

Just changing the exercise that you do isn’t gonna really get you anywhere fast

 

Shoulders seem to be one of the things we dismiss pretty quickly

 

Cricket is a throwing game, of course the shoulders are going to get jacked up at some point

 

And shoulder and upper body mobility has been one of the 2 areas over the last couple years that there has been a noticeable decline across the season, so when know they come under tremendous pressure

 

But if we just shift out one shoulder exercise for another is that really helping?

 

As fitness professionals what we should be doing all the time is making sure players and athletes get themselves evaluated

 

Im not bothered by who

 

A movement specialist, physio, sports dr, sports therapist, anyone who has an interest in movement and finding dysfunction

 

Find the main driver for the pain

 

Find out why it is happening

 

Then find out what you need to do to fix the issue, not just disguise it

 

Remember the power is always in your hands, and there are enough good people out there who want to help

 

Take it

 

Its your body, its an amazing piece of kit, look after it, and the places it can take you can be astonishing

 

Think differently
