For example, an athlete who stretches on a daily basis and works out certain parts of their body in season are far less likely to receive an injury than an athlete who does none of these things. The installation of in season strength and mobility programs will reduce the risk of injury among athletes. (2) For this specific study athletes were provided with a shoulder mobility and strengthening program. There …show more content…
The participants would go through a series of shoulder exercises to see the differences between their ranges of motion. This study is very similar to the workout program the participants did for this particular program.

• Next the focus was on shoulder extension with single arm bent over dumbbell rows. They did 3 sets of 10-12 reps, increasing the weight each set.
• The next exercise was lateral dumbbell shoulder raises. This focuses on abduction and external rotation. 3 sets of 10, increase weight each set.
• Next was cable crossovers. This helped with internal rotation and abduction. 3 sets of 10, increase weight each set.
• Next was dumbbell shrugs 3 sets of 10, increasing weight each set. This exercise helped with scapular elevation and retraction.
• For overhead flexion the participants did dumbbell pullovers. This provided a nice stretch to the shoulder muscle while also strengthening it. 3x10. Stay the same weight each set and focus on stretching the
