Shoulder external rotation by @theclimbclinic using WODFitters resistance bands

The rotator cuff is composed of several muscles and tendons.

When overuse, it can cause pain, stiffness, and weakness if not treated, it may result in further damage.

These exercises help strengthen your shoulder muscles and improve flexibility. 💪💪

Here is a series of accessory exercises targeting the rotator cuff musculature involved in overhead shoulder external rotation (ER) 🚀 . .

The use of the rig allows the opportunity specifically stabilize the upper body and target the rotator cuff.

This allows for the shoulder to move through its available resistive ER motion without larger muscle groups (such as the deltoids) or body position (trunk rotation) compensate for the movement 🔥 . .

⚡️Shoulder Horiz. Abd. Position⚡️ 1️⃣ Horizontal ER Resistance 2️⃣ Vertical ER Resistance . .

⚡️Shoulder Horiz. Add. Position⚡️ 3️⃣ Horizontal ER Resistance 4️⃣ Vertical ER Resistance . .

Perform these techniques as a means to “prime” the shoulders for overhead activity or use in conjunction with other strategies to promote rotator cuff strength/stability through available ROM ✅ . .

Tag a partner that could benefit from priming the shoulders for overhead activity 💯
