Thanks for putting these together.

Here's a suggestion for a potential topic: preparing for field work, i.e. lots of repetitions at higher power.

Nice presentation Doc. You mention external shoulder rotation on backhand, but if you pronate palm down in followthrough wouldn't that be internal rotation? Does it depend on whether your arm follows through above(high five) or below(thumb down) the shoulder socket?

Another topic suggestion for you to cover - Piriformis and IT Band.

Shoulder video was excellent. A few more exercises in the future, as you mentioned, would be appreciated. I have done some moderate strengthening with dumbbells in similar motion to your couch exercise, minus the external rotation part, and it seemed to help prevent a mild impingement hangup feeling I had for a little while. Glad to see the motion I was doing was on the right track, from trying to google and do my best.

Great stuff doc, the stuff on scapular / serratus anterior. I've got scapular winging to some degree and have been using the following exercise:



along with a number of other stretches and push up plus.

I have had neck issues over the years and finally got to the point were holistically improving the issue has become a requirement.

If you have an specific exercises for scapular winging, I'm all wings.

Thanks so much for the shoulder strengthening video. I tore my rotator cuff and my bicep muscle and also had my bicep muscle turned upside down, all from trying to do a 80' push putt. It put me on the ground in pain. I had it all fixed about 3 months ago and have been doing lots of physical therapy. I am back to were I can do short putts with my right arm but I have to be very careful. I worry that I won't ever be able 2 throw with my right arm again but I refuse 2 give up. I want 2 make sure it doesn't happen again so I really need 2 exercise the crap out of it. I hope all disc golfers watch your videos because I have never had shoulder problems and just like that I was down 4 the count. Thanks again.

Good idea. I was planning on a stretching/warmup video but an emphasis on field work prep makes sense.

You are right, it depends on the follow through. I'll have to think on it, but the reach back would seem to be a combination of horizontal addiction and some internal rotation and the follow through horizontal abduction with the tendency towards external rotation (not that the external rotation is encouraged). I wouldn't mistake pronation for internal rotation but the two often go together. Otherwise, you are right.

Thanks for the suggestion. From my experience piriformis and IT band syndrome are way over diagnosed and are almost always not the issue. The sciatic nerve courses through the piriformis in only about 10-17% of the population. Most of the time it is being impinged elsewhere. IT band syndrome can happen with runners or other long distance/repetitive movement athletes but is not nearly as common as people think. That may be a good topic in and of it self in that sense.

Just posted this last night on scapular stabilization. It is intended to be the first of two parts.: https://youtu.be/FUWJoNnsXZ0
