Shoulder Preparation Using Crossover Symmetry

Shoulder Preparation Using Crossover Symmetry

Here is a Shoulder preparation routine I like to use prior to an upper body day in the gym or I like to prescribe prior to competing for any overhead athlete. Perform 5 repetitions of each. . 1๏ธโƒฃShoulder External Rotation with arms at side 2๏ธโƒฃShoulder Tโ€™s 3๏ธโƒฃShoulder External Rotation with arms elevated to 90 degrees of abduction 4๏ธโƒฃShoulder Internal Rotation- Donโ€™t forget Subscapularis is the strongest rotator cuff muscle 5๏ธโƒฃResisted Wall Angel . I particularly like this cross over symmetry unit because of the external demand into horizontal adduction, this also allows me to go through more range of motion with exercises such as the T or shoulder external rotation with arms at side compared to a normal pulley with the anchor directly in front of my shoulder.
