What shoulder articulation is this

Post by nimbus8 » Wed Sep 25, 2013 10:28 pm

In the video watch my right arm. It tends to pull lower and doesn't flare my lat out like the left does. After i do the initial pulldown i then demonstrate where it should be and repeat the articulation several times to correct it. What shoulder articulation is this and what should i do to correct it?

I fixed the link and took you out of the "newly registered" group, which will give you full user rights.

That looks like external rotation, the one at the bottom here.

The only difference is laying VS standing. The bottom 3 things there on the shoulder articulation page are the main things you need to fix it. You may need more back work in relation to chest. The main problem seems to be rotator cuff, but an imbalance is possible, particularly if you do chest more. You might have weak rear delts as well. It couldn't hurt to do vertical pull with a more narrow grip and/or add some bent over laterals.

Alright thank you very much, a better way to describe the issue is as follows. You know how your supposed to tuck you elbows in toward your body on an overhead press or military press? Well my right elbow flares out to the side ass opposed to staying tucked in.
