Just wondering if anybody else has experienced this and what they've done about it...After the past few snatch days I've had pain along the top anterior side of my left shoulder, especially when trying to raise my extended arm laterally out to the side. It usually subsides within a few days but I fear I might be doing consistent damage to something. Thinking about taking a week or two off from snatching and really trying to mobilize the joint using whatever I can find on K-Star's site and some light shoulder stabilizer stuff like in Ben's shoulder series video.
Same exact thing with me. It started when I stopped doing yoga. I just started yoga again 3 days ago and it's already going away. I don't know if that's something that interests you but i think holding all those positions helps my joint stability big time.
It interests me, but it's hard enough making time to train, let alone layering yoga classes on top of it (I've got a 1-year old daughter at home and my wife is a nurse with a rotating schedule). That being said, I could probably do something in the living room a few nights a week. Is there a particular series of movements, type of yoga, etc. that you find most beneficial? YouTube links highly appreciated! haha

do u tend to pull from the ground ?how Is your shoulder position on the set up? are u making sure your shoulder blades are back ( not rolled forward) active lats? how do you bring the bar back down? just giving u some things I tell my athletes ... if you r starting in a bad position , you may not even know it... because it feels right... I know I may be saying things u already know...but I would definitely do a mental check on those things AFTER your shoulder is recovered :) in the meantime... mobilize /massage/TP therapy / stability exercises when pain free
Thank you both so much for the responses. I'm probably not cue-ing the "shoulder blades back and down" well enough at the start, and I've always found lowering the bar to be a bit sketchy. My typical cues in the start position are things like "butt down" and "chest up", then as I start the lift "stay in the heels" and "keep the bar close". I will try to do more extensive warm-ups as well, as I'm usually doing this stuff at 5-5:30 AM, at most 30 minutes after rolling out of bed. Gotta do what you gotta do!
I have the same isue with my shoulder! rested two weeks now when i also had a cold but it didnt get any better. Trying to figure out the cause. Taking it easy on the snatch now and working on more mobility. Hope your shoulder getting better.
does n e one else find themselves refreshing the browser on rest days ... in anticipation for tge next day?? that had gone away for a littke while.... but it's def back !!:) love Crossfit !
I refresh this page about 100 times on Sundays, especially when the Patriots are off.
Oh you only do that on rest days? What about the other 5 days? What's wrong with you?
I'm probably responsible for at least 50 page views a day. That's what happens when you are a fitness junkie stuck in a desk job in front of a computer all day.
