Building off of what we have talked about recently in terms of health and longevity, we at CFR want to formally introduce another avenue by which we are trying to keep you healthy!
Starting FRIDAY (9/5) and MONDAY (9/8) we will be conducting 2 very simple tests to evaluate shoulder mobility and core stability/pressing strength. These tests are nothing new and scary, they are basic and give us a general look at whether or not certain movements are optimal for you yet.
The tests are:
-Back to Wall Shoulder flexion
Scores will rank from 3-1 on each test, with anything less than a 3 resulting in our recommendation to engage in a varying degree of modification/scaling and homework drills. (A lot of which is already taking place, but having an objective system in place will hopefully increase adherence and speed progress)
The goal of this is keep us all healthy and training for as long as possible, we need to be certain our foundation is solid before we start to build too much on top of it. Realize that even if nothing “hurts” yet, these screens are preventative, and show us things that may likely evolve into an issue. We understand this may limit some of us for a while in terms of exercise diversity, but please know that it is with nothing but your best interest in mind we are undertaking this process (and as always we will have plenty of “work” to be done). As with anything there will always be exceptions and outlying examples, so please feel free to talk to a coach if you have a question as to why we are recommending to avoid certain movements.
We care about all of you wonderful people, and want to see you flourish as athletes. That can’t happen if you’re on the sidelines with injuries, so we need you all as healthy as possible.
Please feel free to let us know if you have any questions!
