Most of us have injured or heard someone who’s injured their rotator cuffs. This is a combination of 4 shoulder muscles that not only stabilize the shoulder, but provide mobility to our shoulder blades as well. It is crucial for your shoulders to be positioned well in your shoulder blades to prevent injury from the daily beating this joint gets. This is a super important exercise to strengthen your rotator cuff muscles and centralize your arm bone within the scapula!

Exercise

Lie on your side with a pillow under your head to rest your neck. Place your top arm by your side, and have your elbow bent at 90 degrees, with a weight in hand. Slowly twist your arm so that you are raising your hand towards the sky, without moving your elbow.

Time

Do this for 5-8 reps and repeat 3 times.
