What is the best kettlebell exercise to prevent shoulder pain?
I would argue that it is the Turkish Get Up.
IMPORTANT – the exercise must be done in a pain-free range of motion. This should go without saying, but it should be noted that any exercise that causes you pain, should be avoided.
The TGU is so good for preventing shoulder pain as it moves you through a broad range of motion, while the rotator cuff muscles are firing and stabilizing the entire time.
The weight bearing positions in the exercise are also great for scapular stability and strength.
IMPORTANT – get the technique right, go slow, and break the movement down into “steps”.
