Great article.

I saw this last week Mike, on youtube, Bill Hartman has a good little video on ankle mobility. Check it out.

Interesting stuff.

I think OVER-emphasizing the "active shoulder" is just as bad as under-emphasizing it, though.

The "shoulders in the ears" thing is different than actively shrugging the shoulder up during on overhead movement.

This "coaching point" is often just reminding the lifter to let the body find the best way.

XFit also had a WOD front page talk on shoulder health 1/28:
"The active shoulder, engaging the traps to elevate the shoulder, is a critical component to stabilizing overhead lifts, handstands, and handsprings."

One thing I've noticed is after I added the Burgener warm up and some weighted hang snatches to my warm up, my shoulders have felt better.

Of course, the ART hasn't hurt either.

I believe it was Dan John who suggested those scapula lifts about 2 years ago in an article. He said to do them after jerking the weight up, if I remember correctly.
