Get Fit to Fight
Protect Your Shoulders
You carry the weight of the world on them
“Take care of your body. It is the only place you have to live” Jim Rohn
This quote is simple, yet often neglected on a daily basis. Training to fight keeps you fit and prepared. Taking care of your body ALLOWS you to continue to train in order to stay fit and prepared.
As fate would have it, one of the most “called-upon” body parts in a fight is the shoulder joint. The shoulder is both free-moving yet vulnerable. By that I mean it allows for hundreds of bodily movement patterns used in combat (e.g. jabs, throws, elbow strikes, jiu jitsu moves, wrestling, etc.), yet it is stabilized by very small muscle-tendon units and ligaments. Therefore, caring for this joint in training is essential.
Since most of us have limited time in our days, it is understandable that focusing on one particular joint can easily be pushed aside; however, this mistake can be costly in the long run.
