How To Cable Internal Shoulder Rotation
Starting Position: Begin by adjusting a cable machine so that the handle is a little higher than your waist.
Hold the handle and bend your elbow to 90 degrees. Step away from the machine so that there is a little tension in the starting position.
Form: Exhale and rotate your shoulder in towards the center of your body. Hold for a brief second and then slowly lower to the starting position.
Tips: Do your best to keep your shoulder next to your body– don’t let your elbow move too far out to the side.
Move in a slow and controlled manner so that momentum doesn’t take over. Especially focus on slowly returning to the starting position.
Cable Internal Shoulder Rotation Benefits
The shoulder muscle consists of 3 parts. These; anterior deltoid, lateral deltoid and posterior deltoid muscles. Besides these large muscles, there are 4 more muscles to consider. These muscles are called rotator cuff muscles. These muscles are like columns under the building! The stronger the columns, the more earthquake resistant the building. The shoulder muscles are just like that, the stronger the muscles that support it, the stronger the shoulder muscles. One of the causes of shoulder pain and shoulder injuries in sports is to overload the shoulder muscles without strengthening these muscles.
- Rotation exercises are exercises designed to strengthen the rotator cuff muscles connected to the shoulder muscles. Strengthening your rotator cuff muscles with these exercises before shoulder training is beneficial for your shoulder health.
- To makeover the entire muscle for better muscle balance and joint stability, you have to work it through a full range of motion. Performing shoulder exercises designed to strengthen the muscles as well as to improve the shoulder range of motion will reduce the stress on the joint making it less susceptible to joint inflammations like tendinitis and bursitis.
