Training Tip Tuesday: Shoulder Flexibility

The Olympic Lifts require a certain amount of flexibility to execute properly. If you aren't flexible, I'd like to share a couple of shoulder stretching warm ups to incorporate into your program. If you are flexible, it doesn't hurt to try something new.

I am a former thrower so a lot of these mobility drills I have grown to learn and love. I think any athlete, especially weightlifters or anyone trying to learn the Olympic Lifts, should make fervent efforts to become more flexible. Flexibility equals better technique. Better technique equals less injuries.
