    Anyone have any links on increasing shoulder mobility? My internal rotation is TERRIBLE on both shoulders and its really time I start paying more attention to them.

    I can't do that with my right arm touching my left shoulder blade. NOT EVEN CLOSE. Left I can, but its a struggle.

    My biceps gets in the way.


    Kidding. I can touch the lower blade with both arms right now.

    Can you do put the hands together like you're praying behind your back?

    I can get to my lower back, with all my fingers touching and the very top of my palm. But I can't close it. In between my shoulder blades? YEA GOOD FUCKING LUCK.
