Move Better Monday: Shoulder CARs with Foam Roller

Shoulder Controlled Articular Rotations (CARs) are an exercise I prescribe to all of my clients on a daily basis. For optimal shoulder longevity and maintenance of our mobility, it's important to move the glenohumeral joint throughout it's entire range of motion under voluntary muscular control. However, most people compensate good shoulder movement for other joint movements when training near their end-ranges.

Today's Move Better Monday breaks down how to quickly clean up any torso rotation with your Shoulder CARs by incorporating a foam roller into the movement. Check out the video below to learn how and why this is a great way to perform your CARs if you're a beginner!
