Abstract

THE FITNESS BENEFITS ASCRIBED TO WEIGHT TRAINING (WT) ARE WELL KNOWN; HOWEVER, PARTICIPATION IS NOT WITHOUT RISK. COMMON WT EXERCISES OFTEN PLACE THE SHOULDER IN UNFAVORABLE POSITIONS SUCH AS END-RANGE EXTERNAL ROTATION (HIGH-FIVE POSITION), PREDISPOSING THE SHOULDER TO ANTERIOR INSTABILITY. THIS COLUMN PRESENTS WT EXERCISE MODIFICATIONS DESIGNED TO MITIGATE ANTERIOR SHOULDER INSTABILITY.
