Shoulder Series for Goalkeepers- Stability Ball for Overhead Control

The shoulder joint can be compromised easily when you take your hands overhead, catch a ball, and land on outstretched arms.  The structures of the joint itself do not have as strong and stable attachments compared to the hip, which is the same type of ball and socket joint.  The shoulder must rely on strong muscles surrounding the shoulder to be activated and work in unison for joint stability.  Proper training of the shoulder joint and surrounding areas should be incorporated at least two times a week.  These videos show specific exercises for stability when your arms are overhead.
