In the past 10 years, shoulder problems have been the most common roadblock I've seen prevent people from achieving their strength and fitness goals. I want to share what I have found to be a solution to that problem.
Let's get your range of motion back and build strength and coordination on top of it to make sure you keep it.
What it Covers

A Word From The Author
“Going back to his now likely famous video of SLDL repping 3 wheels, I have been quite attentive to Max Shank's performance and messages. I've come to say that I wish I knew what he knew when I was his age. Physical feats always make an impression to reel you in, but not nearly as often is there a coaching or clinical message associated that is equally as robust. S3 is the second book from Max, and the quality of the message is just as high as Ultimate Athleticism. I may go so far to suggest that S3 is less intimidating at first glace even though the regressions of UA made the program useful for all types. S3 has training options that everyone can use and more importantly is still concept-based and systematic with options of shoulder exercises that illustrate Max's beliefs. The exercises are solid, regressive and lateralized when needed. S3 is highly recommended for all types."

Frequently Asked Questions
Question: What Equipment do I need?
Rings or TRX and Dowel or Martial Arts Belt
Question: It hurts when I do (overhead press, rowing..). Can I do this program?
Avoid painful ranges of motion. That being said, continue moving the parts of your body that feel good. Always test movements gently before you dive right in.
Question: How much time do I need to commit?
It depends. Some people feel better after one session, others need a few consistent weeks. I would plan to incorporate these movements for a lifetime...if you want to keep getting better every day.
