I am going to show you the exercise that I do every day for my shoulder health.
During my warm ups, when I am resting between exercises, I will head over to my home made pull up bar and perform the exercise below.
This exercise makes my shoulder feel great, improves my shoulder movement and makes overhead work easier.
The demonstration is from the one and only Funk Roberts.
Enjoy and give it a go.

Hey guys, I’m Funk Roberts from FunkMMA.com. Today, I have an awesome shoulder warm up for all of you who have shoulder pain. If you have shoulder pain or rotator cuff issues, this is a great real quick warm up that you can do before you start training. It is called the “Vertical Hang”.
It sounds exactly what it is, a vertical hang. I got this from my buddy Rick Kaselj who has a Shoulder Pain Solved program. It is incredible to use for anyone who has a shoulder problem, rotator cuff issue, dislocated shoulder, and any type of shoulder problems.
Today, I am going to show you a quick warm up. Some of you guys are probably doing this already. It is a vertical hang that you can do anywhere. It could be on a bar or anywhere that you can hang off the floor. I’ll just walk you through it quickly. It is incredible to lengthen up that shoulder and get it back to a pain-free state that we all want so we can train and we can workout without having that pain.
Check this out and get it done.
Best Exercise To Do Before Your Workout For Your Shoulder

I jump on the bar and hang for 15 seconds. I hang off the ground. It is going to feel a little weird and a little uncomfortable, especially if you haven’t done this for awhile, but you have to hang on for 15 seconds.
The reason why this actually works is because over time gravity pulls our arms and our arms weigh about 10 lbs. The slow point starts when we shape our shoulder into the painful joint and it shortens the ligaments of the shoulder. But with the vertical hang, we actually stretch the ligaments back into that pain-free shoulder, we shape the ligaments. Once you jump off, you are going to find that your shoulders feel great, they feel awesome. That’s it! It’s pretty simple. You just do it once.
