Proper Pullup Form and Grip Position for Previously Injured, Dislocated or Hypermobile Shoulders

submitted by Antranik on 11/29/18 1

If you have normal, healthy shoulders it is normal to go all the way down into a passive dead hang and pull the shoulders down into an active dead hang before the elbows start bending, but if you have had a previously injured, dislocated, impinged or hypermobile shoulders (ehlers danlos hypermobility syndrome), then it's best that you do not go into a passive dead hang but instead, when your arms straighten at the bottom of a pullup, stay in an active dead hang with the shoulders away from the ears. Also, I talk about the grip position, how to grip your fingers, especially the pinky fingers going deep over, to keep your rotator cuff fired up and help you stay in this active hang, as well as thumb under covering the index finger for maximum grip. ⭐ My Programs ► Easy Hamstrings: antranik.org/register/hamstrings ► Hypertrophy routine: antranik.org/get-hypertrophy-routine/ ► Rings-oriented training routine: antranik.org/get-rings-routine/ ► Slackline program: antranik.org/slackline/ 💛 Follow me at: ► Instagram: instagram.com/antranikdotorg ► Facebook: facebook.com/antranik.org ► Mailing List: eepurl.com/ug8Sn ⭐ Patreon: patreon.com/antranik ⭐ I Use a Foam Roller Daily for Self-Massage! ► How I use it: antranik.org/foam-roller-exercises/ ► Which one to buy: antranik.org/foam-roller-guide/ ⭐ I also use a Lacrosse Ball for Self-Massage! ► Lacrosse Ball Guide: antranik.org/lacrosse-ball/ ⭐ The BEST Bodyweight Training Book: ► Overcoming Gravity 2: amzn.to/2yOzFLy
