@Regrann from @dr.jacob.harden - ARE YOU WARMING UP YOUR ROTATOR CUFF CORRECTLY?
How many of you have seen people warm up their shoulders like the top picture? 🙈 @quaddoc broke down this common mistake in her recent series on Shoulder Impingement. . Breaking down the ❌ in the top picture the motion being performed is not against resistance which is gravity in this case. All you actually do here is work the bicep, not so much the rotator cuff. . So how do we fix this? 🤔 One option would be to use a band or cable in the standing version. But if you want to use the plate, go into a side lying postion and perform external rotation from there. Now you are actively working against resistance (gravity) by engaging your rotator cuff to lift the weight. . Some things to keep in mind 💭 as you go through this: . 🔹Elbow is bent to 90° 🔹Keep the elbow tucked to your side. Do not let it pop up! 🔹Raise/externally rotate the weight as far as you can comfotably. . Do these for 3 sets of 10-15 reps and get a nice shoulder burn before you start training. Tag a friend 🙋 and show their shoulders some 😙 love!
