Probably the most abused joint of all when it comes to any form of resistance training.
We ask a hell of alot from our shoulders on a daily basis, and any disfunction of this complicated structure will inevitably lead to pain and eventually injury if issues are not addressed.
AWARENESS of disfunction is the first and most important aspect of shoulder care. Pain during certain movement patterns or the inability to perform a certain ROM is a sure sign of issues in one or more muscles of the shoulder area.
PREVENTION is always preferable to a cure, and when it comes to the shoulders this is often neglected to a huge degree among trainees. Knowing how to prevent muscular imbalances and identifying these imbalances is key to injury prevention. And don't be fooled, there's more to this than just equating pulling and pushing movements ; internal and external rotation, aswel as shoulder adduction/abduction, scapular elevation and depression are all movement patterns which need to be analysed for possible disfunctions on an ongoing basis.
TREATMENT will be necessary in the case of injury or severe disfunctions in the movements associated with the shoulder joint. Failure to address issues will most likely lead to the issue getting progressively (much) worse, resulting in either chronic or acute pain. And as we all know, when that happens training quality is greatly compromised i.e. You can kiss progress goodbye!
Be kind to your shoulders and they'll be kind to you!
If you are having shoulder issues, consider a postural assessment and some tissue work to alleviate any problems.
This service is available here at Muscle Eire, where I use a combination of:
- A postural assessment
- Deep tissue massage
- Preventative / Rehabilitation exercises

Zoe Hawk, a Community Class instructor, and Teaching Assistant at VCUarts Qatar, is currently taking part in a residency programme at Cow House Studios in Ireland.
Cow House Studios is an artist-run school and residency set in the farmland of County Wexford, in South East Ireland. A productive farm to this day and set on 180 acres of land, Cow House Studios is nestled at the foot of the scenic Blackstairs Mountains. The studios are housed in a converted stone barn. Built in 1915, it was a working “cow house” until 2006. Artists share the large, adaptable studio allowing them to become acquainted with and challenged by one another's work.
Zoe's work was recently shown at "Contemporary Art Qatar" in Berlin; at the "3rd Annual Hand Pulled Prints" in New York; at "Unfolding Creative Methods" at the Garage Gallery at the Fire Station in Doha; and at "The Secrets We Keep: New Works by Zoe Hawk, Ashley Jonas & Stephanie McGuiness", at the Dayton Visual Arts Center, in Dayton, Ohio. •

Tell me, what is the best place or accommodation you have ever stayed in? Wilton Castle in Wexford might top my list. 🖤
New blog post! It isn’t a stocked bar cart, but it is a cute one! The glass decanters are from my grandma, the felt banner is from the photo booth at our wedding, and the mirrored tray was my first thrift find in our town! I pulled some favorite thrifted and diy pieces together with a sprinkle of modern touches to style this new board game cabinet in our dining room.
I’m sharing some styling tips in a new post today, and some curated pieces to create a “bar cabinet” of your own. (You’ll never guess what this cabinet was originally used for!)

This is one of the places that I worship 😆 Macfit PT - classes run by a fantastic and enthusiastic (and somewhat sadistic 😉) guy called Brian. I go spinning once a week and do a bums & tums class once a week to. I'd love to do more of them, but work and kids get in the way 😂 B&T tonight and I'm shattered!
