Shoulder Warm Up/Workout on Pads
Ever wonder what’s up with that Mayweather pad work?
Well, this will surely give you a peek at what’s underneath. A workout won’t be a good workout without a good warm up. Your body is like an elastic band, if you stretch it while it’s cold, it’s going to snap.
We’re here to train, so, obviously, we don’t want to go to Snap City. However, what makes this warm up/workout (you can use it for both) unique is its emphasis on the shoulders. Your shoulders are the hips of your upper body, so one giant portion of your range of motion depends on your shoulder’s health; therefore, if you injure your shoulders, you’re out of training for…a long time.
The shoulder is one of our most complex joints. Take care of them.
