“Mate that was f***ing awesome” was the highlight for me. How do you guys struggle with mobility?
I thoroughly enjoyed this video consultation with Terry Hollands and I hope there is something in this for you too. You may find that your tight shoulders are also remedied by these exercises
Feel free to skip to the mobility regime at 16:49 but you’ll see up bit by bit devise a suitable plan for Terry. COVID-19 has meant that we can’t see patients face to face but video consultations have been amazingly effective
Terry has a grade 3 right biceps tear which may have led to the stiffening of his rotator cuff to compensate. Here we work with what is called “sacromerogensis” which is the body’s compensatory mechanism to lengthen muscle tissue.
We apply this to his shoulder capsule and his rotator cuff to improve shoulder flexion and external rotation. Give it a go
