Instructions: How To

Focusing on the rotator cuff muscles, this exercise enhances shoulder stability and mobility. The external rotation movement with the loop band resistance strengthens the shoulder's external rotators, crucial for injury prevention and rehabilitation. It’s suitable for all fitness levels and is especially beneficial for athletes and individuals seeking to improve shoulder health.

  1. Wrap a resistance band around a fixed pole at elbow height and stand upright with your feet shoulder width apart pendicular a few feet away from the pole.
  2. Grab ahold of the resistance band handle with the outside hand and keep the elbow fixed and near your torso.
  3. Rotate the handle away from your stomach keeping your forearm parallel with the ground.
  4. Control the movement back to the starting position and repeat with the opposite side.
