Shoulder Rotator Cuff & Ligament Injuries – Level 2 Strengthening T-Pattern Muscle Activation

Start by gripping the band a bit further apart. Bring your arms up to 90 degrees with your elbows bent forward. Maintain the tension in the band and rotate your forearms upwards, slowly and with control.

Return back and repeat this for 10 repetitions doing 3 sets.

It’s important that you keep a neutral spine and engage your core. Nothing should be moving except your arms. Since the hands are closed when doing this exercise, it’s really good for retraining the activation patterns and strengthening the rotator cuff muscles in co-ordination with some scapular muscle activation.  When you are looking to rehab your shoulder injury after straining the rotator cuff itself or spraining the ligaments associated with the shoulder joint.
