Misaligned humerus / shoulder mobility
1 Attachment(s)
Hey everybody

I have weak shoulders, period. My overhead stability is poor and I can't generate any power when working overhead or even bench pressing. And this is NOT because of lack of training. I've seen physiotherapist for over a year now with almost no improvement whatsoever. The problem seems to be in my shoulder sockets and the ball of the humerus is not where it's supposed to be. To make it simple: my posture is ok, but the humerus is too forward inside the socket.

We've tried different stretches, snatch presses, massage, mobility work etc. with no success.

If you have anything in mind that might help, I'm all ears.

Thank you.

What did your fysio say about you lifting weights?

Just to let you all know. I solved this problem of mine by myself, no thanks to my fysio :)

I had/have very tight and overly active chest (pecs) and weak upper back. Also my upper trapezius is dominant compared to lower trapezius. I've been stretching and massaging pecs, lats and traps. Also by doing lots of rowing, facepulls and heavy rack pulls have helped my situation. Since I started doing heavy rack pulls and back extensions my clean PR got up over 10kg in just couple of weeks.

Feel stronger than ever. Thanks.
