This is a tool primarily designed for athletes (amateur to professional), coaches and practitioners. As a precision loadable tool, the ShouldeRok when used correctly will increase strength, mobility, and continuously reinforce our need for core stabilization. The ShouldeRok challenges us as athletes, aids in reaching new PRs and most importantly, helps to keep us injury free and lifting like Vikings for years to come. Sound interesting? Keep reading and we’ll tell you more…
The ShouldeRok was designed to increase shoulder strength, core stability, rotational strength, proper spinal position and shoulder mobility/function.
This tool is partly inspired by Ragnar the Viking prophecy of destruction and subsequent rebirth of the world. The remaining inspiration comes from world class Powerlifter Chris Duffin.
Retrain your nervous system to ensure a stable, braced, neutral spinal position for maximal and safe performance under a heavy load.
Improve scapular and overall shoulder mobility, especially for athletes with impingement due to years of wear and poor movement.
Increase rotational strength and athleticism in pulsing (speed to contraction and speed to relaxation).
Reinforce correct breathing to further support spinal bracing for ALL heavy lifts and movements that require transfer of power from the ground into an implement (ball, bat, club, etc) – You cannot use the ShouldeRok correctly w/o setting up properly, in this sense it is a tool that reinforces a principle required of all athletes – power transfer through the core.
