The last entry in our sandbag series! Thanks for all the ❤️shown in response to our out-of-the-box uses for these amazing tools. ///
Here, it's all about external rotators of the shoulder, muscles that for many of us are super sleepy and underused. The sandbags here are totally optional - you could do this without props or sub the bags for blocks instead and still get some nice proprioceptive feedback. ///
Things to keep in mind:
- elbows stay close to the body and don't float forward of midline
- emphasis on rotation as opposed to scapular retraction - at your end range, when thumbs are reaching back, pause and look for a little extra activation before drawing hands back toward centre
Try 8-10 reps, 3 sets and see what wakes up in response!
