    Default Shoulder Issue

    Ok. So first I do not have the money right now to see a doctor, besides that there is no pain.

    I have been having an issue in my right shoulder. It is not even noticeable most of the time. After a break from KBs I have started working with them again and I have noticed this problem affecting my snatches. When I snatch it feels like my right shoulder is pulled forward more and is more difficult to keep screwed in. There is a stretching in the front of my shoulder. There are only a couple stretches that I can notice a difference in ROM between my right and left. The main one being placing the back of my right hand against my waist and turning my elbow to the front. In this position it feels like something is tight or locked up in the front of my shoulder and it will not rotate as much as my left.

    I have been doing superjoints for a couple years now but it doesn't seem to be getting any better.

    Does anyone have any ideas what this could be?

    I will try to get a vid of my snatches and the stretch I am referring to to post later.

    Thanks

    It sounds like it could be a number of things.

    In the snatches, it sounds like you have a problem "keeping" the shoulder back. That would be a lack of rhomboid function. In the stretch you describe, it is a combination of "internal shoulder rotation" (subscapularis, pec major, lat) and scapular protraction (pec minor, serratus) function. It sounds like those muscles might be shortened and tight. I would work on your rhomboid action and see if that does not get them to loosen up reflexively (i.e., reciprocal inhibition). I have typically found with clients that stretching does not address unbalanced muscle activation -- you have to trick it.

    What would you specifically recommend for rhomboid activation?

    I didn't have to time to make a vid today so I will try tomorrow.

    I am in Dayton Ohio. I think there is only one RKC in Dayton and I don't think there is any FMS people. If there are let me know and I will try to schedule something.
