Resisted Shoulder Rotation

  • Start with the resistance band tied off at elbow height.
  • Standing up straight with your shoulders back and elbows bent at your side.
  • Gently pull the band outwards away from your body by rotating your shoulder, then slowly return to the start position.
  • This should be performed in a pain free range.
  • This exercise is great for early stage shoulder stability.
  • The Rotator Cuff muscles (which are targeted with this exercise) are the main stabilisers of the shoulder.
  • Injuries as well as age-related changes in rotator cuff tendons leave them less elastic and more susceptible to injury, this can be counteracted with strengthening.
