Hello Friends,

I received an e-mail from a guy that was asking me if it is true that Push-Ups are hard on the shoulder joints.

The answer is NO! Far from it. If you perform Push-Ups the way I advocate in Living Strength: Fountain of Youth Exercise System you will protect your shoulders from injury and not cause it.

I was reminded of this last Thursday when having lunch with Tim Kain and Mike Terry.

During lunch Tim was telling Mike about how Living Strength Push-Ups healed his shoulders. He was extending both arms above his head in demonstration like it was nothing at all. But get this, there WAS a time when Tim was so banged up from the weights that he literally could not raise his hands above his shoulders without experiencing extreme pain just as Jack King had once experienced but that was then and this is now.

Here's the deal. Push-Ups when properly performed keep the muscles infused with highly Oxygenated blood while lubricating the joint capsule. In other words, if you want to protect your shoulders from injury start doing Living Strength Push-Ups (Atlas III's) in high volume. When you get to the point that you can perform sets of 30 or more without difficulty and do them multiple times each day, YOU WILL PROTECT from injury and not cause it. In the process you will feel your shoulders healing.
