Instructions: How To

Focusing on the rotator cuff, this isolation exercise improves shoulder stability and health. The cable resistance ensures controlled movement, essential for injury prevention and rehabilitation purposes.

  1. Position the cable to elbow height and stand perpendicular to the cable with your feet shoulder width apart.
  2. Grab ahold of the cable handle with the outside hand and keep the elbow fixed and near your torso.
  3. Bring the handle away from your abdomen keeping your forearm parallel with the ground. Keep your wrist straight and fixed throughout the movement.
  4. Control the movement back to the starting position and repeat.
