      bought the book / mwod pro 2-3 months ago and working on fixing my shoulder problem since then (here is a picture: http://abload.de/img/30js86.jpg – always missed a ton of ROM in that position leading to shoulder pain and weak presses). I greatly improved my posture / awareness, mobilized my t-spine, pec, ant./post. shoulder, lat, etc (basically what’s shown in the mwod pro videos), distracted my joint etc. but can’t seem to accomplish lasting change (after doings the mobs it def. feels better). I watched the “cant make change” video of kstar and it made sense and tried to do the points he mentioned but still no success.
      Any help is appreciated!

      You will need to continue to do the mobs as your body is learning new positioning and this can take some time to maintain. Once it is in a place where the position is able to be maintained doing the mobs will take more of a maintenance role.
