Instructions: How To

Performed with the elbow bent at a 90-degree angle, this variation targets the rotator cuff in a position that is common in daily activities and sports. The loop band provides adjustable resistance, making it an effective way to strengthen the shoulder muscles responsible for external rotation, enhance stability, and prevent injuries.

  1. Wrap a resistance band around a fixed pole at shoulder height and stand facing the pole.
  2. Bend your elbow to 90 degrees at shoulder height with your forearm facing the anchor point grabbing ahold of the handle in an overhand grip.
  3. Rotate the handle upward in a circular motion until your forearm is vertical over your elbow keeping your elbow in a fixed position.
  4. Return to the starting position and repeat with the opposite side.
