As you may or may not know I have had to rehabilitate my shoulders (and my hips) over the years. Some injuries were from improper form on the pole and some were from accidents that were out of my control. I decided after my air walk video that I needed to show how to correctly align and maintain that alignment when doing various pole holds and hangs. This demonstrates and shows how to hold your shoulder during all pole moves.
Many times we when our bodies are not in proper alignment our muscles are not working correctly. This means they are not doing what they were designed to do. Rotator cuffs are designed to stabilize the shoulder girdle. The deltoids are the prime movers meaning they are responsible for lifting weight and holding your body on the pole. If you use your rotator cuff muscles as prime movers they can and usually do get injured.
This is about prevention in the hopes that you will maintain healthy shoulders and not need rehabilitation.
