If you have ever done this, you could EASILY be leading yourself to nagging shoulder pain, or worse… an injury that could put you on hiatus for weeks.

Avoid getting laughed at forever for just $20 <== PLUS the Bodyweight Dirty 30
I’ll explain the Bodyweight Dirty 30, but first…Let me help you out.
What my friend Rick is doing wrong is called the “shoulder tuck”.
He’s demonstrating the incorrect finish (on purpose) of the Cable Pec Fly.
A shoulder tuck is when the shoulder joint collapses toward the middle. When you stand nice and upright, the shoulder is in great centration. But at the end of the cable pec fly exercise a ton of people will let their shoulder drop a little in and to the middle.
This little collapse puts unnecessary stress and strain on the shoulder. Over time this leads to some serious damage to your rotator cuff.
Looking at the top 4 injuries to the shoulder, the rotator cuff is involved in 3 of them. That’s why you want to make sure you have a healthy and strong rotator cuff.
If You Do The Shoulder Tuck Here’s How To Fix It
Next time you do a chest exercise, make sure your chest stays up and does not drop. Dropping your chest leads to shoulder tucking.
Keep your head in good alignment and look straight ahead, looking down will drop your head and lead to tucking.
Have your hands open in order to decrease stress and tension in the elbow and neck.
Move the hands to the middle of the body but have them stop just inside of being in line with the arm pit. Do not let them come together or cross the midline of the body as this leads to the shoulder tuck.
These tips apply to all fly movements….
Use this quick tip to avoid any future shoulder issues.
“But Mikey, I don’t have any shoulder issues.”
Good for you. And you know what? I don’t either, with the exception of throwing it out being silly as I cheered for my Panthers a couple of years ago.
But I still got the program because…
I don’t want to injure myself and end up getting big again. No way.
Not only will I avoid shoulder pain forever, but I also have the perfect game plan for when I travel. In fact, I’m heading out to Denver tomorrow for Craig Ballantyne’s Early to Rise event.
I’ll be using my Bodyweight Dirty 30 program, which are ZERO equipment workouts that take just 30 minutes. I can do these in my hotel room.
And I’ll be using Rick’s tips as I go through the workout.
