Thursday’s helpful hint to save your shoulders!

I’m a big believer of leaving ego out of your workouts. Men and pushups are a good example. Ever seen one man watching another do push-ups the viewer will always comment the doer isn’t touching his nose or chest or whatever to the ground.

GOOD

DON’T

When it comes to bench press and pushups the exercise should start at full extension then stop when you’re elbow is at a 90 degree angle. Don’t touch the bar to your chest, all you’re doing is tearing up the most complex joint on your body to look cooler at the gym.

Stop at 90!

Feel free to list any other helpful tips to save your shoulders and rotator cuffs!
