Hi everyone, i'm a long time listener first time caller ^^

I love Cressey's blog and thought I would share one of his more recent posts about exercise technique. I found it to be a very informative post and video that applies to row in a general sense, whether it is on a cable machine, TRX, or included in a full body exercise.

Regarding the issue, here is a video of rehab specialist Rick Kaselj talking about how dumbell rows can hurt or mess your shoulders.

For Andy, here are the cliffs notes:
- You want to prevent the muscles around the glenohumeral joint (shoulder joint) from turning off, aka leaving the arm hanging. This puts huge stress to the joint structures. Also you want to prevent anterior glide of the humerus. (Again, about the humerus kind of moving out from the glenoid fossa.
- Get some tightness and activate the scapular muscles and keep them stable. Don't leave the arm hanging at any time, the shoulder is a bit pulled back towards the whole movement. So you have to maintain some tension through whole ROM.

Just another side note. Most of the info here is useful to keep in mind when doing backward sled drags. I'm working on strict form to stop a slip into lordosis on this one.

Probably the biggest mistake I see on Dumbbells Rows is twisting at the waist. I think this is mostly an ego thing since it allows a lifter to move a lot of weight with minimal shoulder and elbow movement (cheating partial reps).
