Are you a thumb-around-the-bar-cheater? Do you bend your elbows during your kip swing? Are we always hollering at you to lock your arms out overhead? Here’s what you’re up to. If you are missing full range of motion in the shoulder, you may be compensating with bent elbows. Although this position can feel good, it’s NOT good. In your attempt to create more range of motion, you are sacrificing stability. As a result, your numbers still won’t increase. This also puts you at greater risk for injury. If this is you, it’s time to accept that your limited range of motion in the shoulder is requesting your attention. Don’t cheat on your shoulder range of motion. It could break up with you. And I hear those break ups are the worst!
