Building up tolerance
Has anyone got any tips for building up tolerance on the shoulder for the shoulder mount?
I've started doing tucks from lying down (and intend to progressively sit further and further up until I'm standing) to try to build up the tolerance but I'm finding that I can only do 3-4 tucks before it hurts too much to be able to do it again.
I've not exactly got a lot of padding against the bone which is why I think it's hurting so much!
Is there anything else I can do to try to build it up?
the pole shouldn't really press against your collarbone in this form of shoulder mount. place the pole at the highest point of your shoulder on the trapezius and press your neck against it. you will get used to the pressure on your muscle really quickly.
hope that helps... let us know how it's going!
