Today’s post focuses purely on rotator cuff strengthening, helping to decrease injury risk to the shoulders and improve stability for performance!
The exercises included primarily target the shoulder posterior cuff, particularly the rotator cuff muscles, along with your lateral and medial deltoid heads.
WHY target this area? Generally speaking, to offset the amount of pressing your average gym go-er tends to do, hopefully decreasing the gap between a common strength asymmetry (between the front and back side of your shoulder).
The exercises shown here are 2 you can perform with a dumbbell, theraband (or cable) or loop band. Pick two that use the piece of equipment that is most accessible to you!
Perform 3 sets, 12-15 reps a few times a week.
