3 Tips to Improve Strength

Strength Coach Jason Ferrugia had some fantastic tips recently on ways to improve strength. I wanted to share my favorites with you below:
  • For shoulder health do some type of pushup variation on a regular basis.
  • When doing any type of rowing or chin up variation think about driving back with the elbows instead of simply pulling with the biceps.
  • If you have shoulder issues do all of your rowing exercises with a weight that allows you to hold a peak contraction for a second or two.

    That will ensure that the load isn’t so heavy that it could lead to more potential injuries.
