    Great post Eric always good to refresh

    When my shoulders initially began to become fussy, I was squatting with a very wide grip. Of course, it is never just one factor, there were several: 11 years of guitar playing (about 4 of which saw frequent 8 hour practice sessions), too much anterior delt work, bad posture, weak scapulae — and I’m sure you could find about 50 more!

    Bringing in my squat grip helped. My shoulders are currently getting fussy again (i think its the time of year — pressure changes), but this time I am prepared. I’ve got my foam roller and my single arm movements at the ready!
