Shoulder Rehab with Kettlebells Ireland
Strong and Resilient Shoulders
In this video we are using a section of the Turkish Get Up to prehab / rehab the shoulder. Using a light Kettlebell, in my case an 8kg, start in the half kneeling position.
Press the Kettlebell to lockout and gently let the Kettlebell bring the arm backwards, opening out the shoulder joint, keep this pain free.
The next stage involves hinging to the side (as in the TGU) with the Kettlebell in lockout, again you can let the Kettlebell gently bring the arm backwards, opening out the shoulder at a different angle.
The next phase involves adding a shoulder pressing movement, whilst in the side hinge position. Be careful not to hurt your shoulder here. At the deepest or lowest position in the press, let the Kettlebell again gently pull your arm backwards (external rotation) opening up the shoulder joint. Do all phases in sets of three reps and keep pain free.
I hope this helps you keep your shoulders Strong and Resilient.
