Hand Stand Push Up or Jerk Overhead Mobility (Closed Chain)

Posted on May 10th, by Juliet in Blog, hand stand pushup, overhead, shoulder flexion, shoulder pain.

Hey Leopards,

Today’s Mwod highlights the fact that we have to strive to: Make sure mobilizations look like the movements we are trying to improve and, remember that we often stabilize and change directions during movements (ie. during the re-dip portion of the jerk, the hand/bar complex becomes a closed chain movement).

So, today’s Mwod fixes the hand, and uses the shoulder as the tensioner. Simple.

Remember:  Your time is precious so don’t be afraid to combine techniques.

Test/Retest:  Anything overheaded in nature
