Comments - Giving the shoulders a break tonight, right one is giving me a bit of a problem.

Decided to move on a little with the core stuff. Sports SLDL or Contra Loading DL is using the opposite arm and leg. I'm left handed and left footed so I guess my right is used to being the supporting leg and the wobbly left isn't.

Did a few sets of swings to see how all this patterning etc is translating. Really not enough to tell but I felt it mainly in the glutes and don't think I was using the lower back. Was really focusing on keeping a bit of a curve in my back as I sat back to load up for each swing. But it won't be until I'm doing really high reps and fighting everything else that I'll know for sure.

Nice progress there. Sorry to hear about the shoulder. Sounds like your shoulders are similar to mine. I have to be very careful with ROM or it is very easy to tweak them.
