Bench press killing your shoulders? Try Kettlebell press
The Bench Press is notorious for killing shoulders. If the scapulas aren’t set correctly, or the bench is too wide the shoulder joint will be forced into an anterior shear (pushed forward) creating inappropriate stress and a muscle imbalance within the rotator cuff.
To save this from happening supplement your press work with Kettlebell presses. The weight of the bell on the outside of the arm creates an external rotation force that the Sub-Scap rotator cuff muscle has to resist.This Sub-Scap activation will help pull the rotator cuff back into centration safely and ready for maximal force to be produced.
