incorporating hanging from a bar does many good things to prevent problems. I have had left shoulder problems (popping ) and now on the right side. I stopped doing my hanging for a while and did it yesterday religiously and the next day i felt much better. I bought the kiddle book of this doctor who was a surgeon. He says surgery could be avoided many times..Here is the link for his videos.

X3 with Dante's broomstick stretches.

My shoulders have NEVER been healthy enough to do a broomstick, but I use a band and have worked my hands progressively closer together. I have a terrible left shoulder and have no external rotation at all. This exercise (and being very smart about my pressing) has kept me in the game.

Dante’s broomstick stretch is nowhere near as effective as passive and active hangs for shoulder health.

Build up to brachiation slowly and also some dynamic side swings. Your shoulders WILL improve if you take them through a progressive learning curve with hangs.

Yes John meadows does them with bands and they’re very effective too

Just FYI hanging from a bar with additional weight is another thing that Dante popularized along with the broomstick stretch

This is a mandatory warmup on any and all pressing days and anything with scap/lat movement. Basically any upper body day, i spend 5 mins just loosening up the entire shoulder and upper back gerdle

I can't squat without doing them first, and yes I use a band a lot also, people at my gym keep taking the broomstick and not putting it back and I get tired of looking for it so I just use a band most days.

I had constant issues with shoulder and bicep tendonitis for years. One of John Meadows buddies, Eugene Teo, has a youtube channel. He has some videos on external rotation and shoulder health. I watched about 3 or 4 of them and incorporated his suggestions into my routine weekly. I have had zero issues with my shoulders or tendonitis...outside of finding out that my anatomy hates upright rows and I should never do them.

Fuck I wish I could do shoulder stretches but I am so far gone. If i try scratch my back I seem to pull a muscle it fucking sucks.
Lockdown done me zero favours! I would appreciate any beginner exercises anyone knows or recommends where you are literally as stiff as a statue...we need to start somewhere right?

Others have mentioned 'dead hangs'. I did them a lot when I was rock
climbing and got fairly good at them, minutes. I helps to have a low
body weight, your shoulder socket does not grow like a muscle does.
And never with additional weight. A huge mistake in my opinion, asking
for trouble unless done properly.

If I may so bold, I am going to jump in here on this subject and share
something very important . . . too me, at least based on my experience.

Maybe this is self evident (it was not to me).

Do not hang with all your weight on your shoulder socket. Big problem.

When you have have some tension in your arms to take the load off you
shoulder socket. This will prevent injury's. Do not 'hang' there with all
that weight pulling on your shoulder. Once you have learned that have have
increased your time (my goal) you can always add weight but stick to the
correct protocol.

This is all my opinion of course, based upon my direct experience and the
experience of others including very accomplished rock climbers.

And DC is right on when it come to the 'broom stick' stretch. It is magic.
I have zero shoulder issues despite all the off the wall dumb shit I am
capable of.

Is there any methodology here or do you just hang for as long as you can?
Work towards a minute. When you can hang for a minute, add weight and so on

I fail to see the carryover to weight training / bodybuilding with one exception.
(See below.)

But hey, do I know?

Like I said, I did them a bunch while rock climbing where it did help I
beginner like me. I went for pure time, never added weight.

There are some way better climbers than me on this forum, I hope they
come in.

Still, don’t hang like a dead man and let your shoulder take the brunt of
the punishment.

Would somebody please explain to simple minded person like me . . .
What place do they have in this ‘sport’ . . . Rehab? Injury prevention?

Oh, I forgot to mention. The are great to do immediately after wrist curls
as part of your forearm routine. Amazing.
