Acute Pain, Dead Hangs, and Occlusion – Movement Debrief Episode 40

Movement Debrief Episode 40 is in the books. Below is a copy of the video for your viewing pleasure, and audio if you can’t stand looking at me.

Here is the set list:

  • How to approach someone with an acute spasm?
  • Can anything be done to improve acute pain syndromes?
  • What should the finishing position be in vertical pulls?
  • Should we “reach” during vertical pulls?
  • Is there a risk of impingement with hanging from a bar?
  • Should we “pack” the shoulder during pullups?
  • What is occlusion and what are the basic types?
  • How does occlusion relate to posture and pain?
