Simple Rotator Cuff Exercise
- You can be seated or standing for this exercise. Have your right elbow bent at 90 degrees with your arm across your tummy and your right hand holding the handle or end of the band. Grip the tube with your left hand and anchor it behind your back or on your left hip, with the rest of the band dangling down.
- Keeping hold of the tube with your left hand, inhale and pull your right hand to the right, keeping your elbow tucked in at your side. Hold for 2 seconds exhale and release.
- This band exercise works great for the shoulder. This exercise can help you strengthen the muscles in your shoulder (especially the muscles of the rotator cuff - the part that helps with circular motion). These exercises are meant to be done with very light weight and should not cause any pain, if you do feel pain reduce the weight or discontinue the exercise.
