Instructions: How To

Optimizing the rotator cuff's strength at a functional angle, this exercise focuses on internal rotation with the arm at a 90-degree angle. The loop band allows for controlled resistance, aiding in the development of shoulder stability and strength, which is essential for both daily activities and athletic performance.

  1. Wrap a resistance band around a fixed pole at shoulder height and stand upright with your feet shoulder width apart facing away from the pole a few feet away.
  2. Bend your elbow to 90 degrees at shoulder height with your forearm directly over your elbow grabbing ahold of the handle in an overhand grip.
  3. Rotate the handle forward in a circular motion until your forearm is parallel with the floor keeping your elbow in a fixed position.
  4. Return to the starting position and repeat with the opposite side.
