Whether you’re a swimmer, triathlete, football player, or someone who moves daily, you are susceptible to shoulder pain. Shoulder pain is not fun, and the cause of the pain can also be a challenge to uncover. This leads to the frustrating feeling of a lack of progress and stagnant success. Today, we are going to break down how you can take control of your shoulder health and keep this joint active for years to come.

I have an awesome opportunity for you today! As educational institutions adapt to the current reality, one college is taking a whole new approach with a swimming class. The class is focused on how you can become the best swimmer you can be, from technique practices to being a good teammate. As part of this class, I will be giving talks on how to include effective dryland practices as part of a swimmer's training. The topics for discussion were submitted by class participants (all college swimmers).
Ready for the best part?
As we head into the next week of social distancing, you might be getting tired of bodyweight-only training. That being said, you do not have access to a sweet garage gym to use. Options seem limited, but I'm here to tell you that you have more resources available than you think.
Goals for today...
Yes, you have an athletic goal but you also want the athletic body that comes with the process! It is no surprise that the ESPN Body Issue captivates millions of viewers each year. The bodies of athletes are mesmerizing for what they can do and how they look.
As a coach, I am worried about helping your body move more freely, minimizing pain, and managing injury risks. From there, I aim to help you achieve a new level of performance measures (ex. strength, hydrogen ion buffering, power, etc.). With these newly developed levels of performance, you can go out and accomplish new feats or better performances in your goal endeavors.
