Benefits to Warming up Your Rotator Cuffs

 

 

Rotator cuffs are generally a BIG discussion anymore. Everyone has a shoulder pain that ends up being diagnosed as a rotator cuff problem.  This video explains some of the mistakes made when warming up your rotator cuff muscles. It goes over a few different methods to warm them up properly so you don’t run into shoulder problems. Follow these exercises about 2-3sets of 20 repetitions before an upper body workout involving shoulder movement and you will notice a very big difference of how primed up your shoulders now feel.

This is also a great movement to try before bench, while warming up because the rear delts are the antagonist muscle in the bench press. When warmed up properly, you will feel more stable and could possibly make a 10-20 pound difference on your BENCH!

The rotator cuff is composed of 4 muscles:

  1. Supraspinatus
  2. Subscapularis
  3. Infraspinatus
  4. Teres minor

Together, these muscles help with abduction, extension, external rotation and internal rotation. These muscles are located in the posterior deltoid as seen in the picture below.
