TheShouldeRok™ was designed to increase shoulder strength, core stability, rotational strength, proper spinal position and shoulder mobility/function. The namesake for this tool is inspired by Ragnarök the Viking prophecy of destruction and subsequent rebirth of the world. The remaining inspiration comes from world class Powerlifter Chris Duffin.
THIS PRODUCT IS DESIGNED TO HELP:
- Retrain your nervous system to ensure a stable, braced, neutral spinal position for maximal and safe performance under a heavy load.
- Improve scapular and overall shoulder mobility, especially for athletes with impingement due to years of wear and poor movement.
- Increase rotational strength and athleticism in pulsing (speed to contraction and speed to relaxation).
- Reinforce correct breathing to further support spinal bracing for ALL heavy lifts and movements that require transfer of power from the ground into an implement (ball, bat, club, etc) - You cannot use the ShouldeRok correctly w/o setting up properly, in this sense it is a tool that reinforces a principle required of all athletes - power transfer through the core.
Regular Zinc - This is the regular finish that your Shoulderok will have. Shiny and bright on arrival with a hue that varies from bluish to brownish. As the bar is used this coating will develop dull, gunmetal grey patina. Least expensive and a very durable option.
