Going to give the Snatch Test a ride for RKC at some point this Spring or early Summer.
As we get settled here, some soft tissue and laser work on both shoulders, I think will get me what I need in terms of shoulder health. What I accomplished with Steve P and Liz Perez and the diet since September has gotten me to this kind of workout pain-free and not wildly restricted. My training logs from months ago would never support this kind of workout. No shot.
Charlie.. any description on your plans/template/reasoning behind the “air”. I’m unfamiliar with the usage or any of it’s application. I could see it being a little easier on the joints.
