Default Correct Way to Work Rotator Cuff Muscles

Too many weight lifters i have encountered in my years of being a personal trainer who have attempted to strengthen their rotator cuffs but ended up just doing an isometric bicep hold as i demonstrated in the beginning of this tutorial. So i thought it would be a good idea to explain why that exercise doesn't work as you think it does and give you variations that actually activate the intended muscles.

Rotator Cuffs are the deep muscles located beneath your superficial muscles of your upper back as well as shoulders and are responsible for alot of the stabilization in your shoulder girdle and joint. It comes into play during bench press, rows, deadlifts, push ups and basically any upper body involved exercise. So it is important to keep them strong and healthy or in the case of injury to rehab properly.

This video will focus on resistance band and dumbbell variations that you can implement yourself!

If you can’t stand with your back to the wall and your arms in the 90-90 position touching the wall, then you absolutely need to add this stretch into your daily routine. Stretch the front of your chest (pec minor and pec major) and anterior shoulder with this simple doorway stretch. Hold the stretch for 30 seconds, and repeat 3 times.
