Is there such a thing as a workout (say, strengthening and / or stretching exercises) intended to help erg users minimize the likelihood having rowing-induced shoulder issues?
Too often, when I try to push myself “to the next level” (to use a phrase you hear too often in ESPN interviews) I end up tweaking something in my shoulder and have to either stop rowing for a week or so, or back off on effort and meters. I know I’m not over-training, or anything like that (I typically only row three times per week, no more than 5k per workout).
This could be technique-related, but for the sake of argument, let’s assume that that’s not the case.
Bottom line, what, if anything, can I be doing to help out my shoulders?
I didn’t find the right solution from the internet.
