Shoulder Band Exercises
The importance of a strong shoulder (or two), is sometimes overlooked when working out or doing rehabilitation protocols for the upper body. The shoulders are extremely important in acting as an anchor for the arm to the upper body.
The shoulder is a ball and socket joint, which can predispose itself to injury as there is increased mobility and instability associated with this type of joint system. Gaining strength in the shoulder will not only prevent future wear and tear of the SITTS muscles of the rotator cuff, but it will also improve posture and relieve neck pain and associated headaches. Below are three simple exercises anyone can do at home or in the gym with resistance bands. Take the three minutes to watch and then incorporate this to your warm-up or workout routine. Enjoy!
