Elastic Band Shoulder External Rotation With Abduction
Resistance bands provide a cheap, portable, safe, and effective way to challenge the body and its musculoskeletal system by providing resistance and maximizing freedom of movement and customization of the exercise. External shoulder rotation exercises are designed to strengthen the posterior side of your rotator cuff which improves shoulder stability and posture.
Begin in an upright posture with a resistance band in one hand. The arm with the resistance band should make a 90 degree angle in the armpit out to your side and also a 90 degree angle in the elbow. These 90 degree angles should be held for the duration of the exercise. The palm holding the band should be facing towards the ground. To begin the motion, pull on the resistance band so your hand is moving backwards and upwards. The end position is your palm facing forward with the rest of your body in the same position. The axis of rotation was your upper arm bone and shoulder. Repeat contractions for 30 seconds. Relax and repeat for a total of 2 times for each arm.
