If jumping onto a higher box results in poor landing mechanics, you are likely to do more harm than good. Poor landing technique does not translate to real life or real world sporting situations without increasing the risk of injury. If you need to pull your knees up towards your chest to prevent your feet hitting the edge of the box, you are likely to find yourself collapsing forwards once contact has been made with the box. This is not effective training. Instead, you’re training poor posture and forceful deep hip flexion.
Recovering completely from a shoulder injury can be a lengthy process. The shoulder moves in many different ways and the rotator cuff is responsible for controlling these movements.
Muscle activation and correct movement patterns are vital in the early to intermediate stages. Then, during the later stages, it is important to strengthen the rotator cuff muscles throughout range of motion, particularly the diagonal patterns.
Cooling down tends to be skipped more often than warm-ups; however, it is equally important. Cooling down allows the body to regulate heart rate, blood pressure and temperature back to resting levels and promotes muscle recovery.
