The external rotators of the shoulders are pillars of a dominant posture and athletic performance. Interestingly enough they are a recurring muscular imbalance I note in new students and athletes.
No surprise considering they are ghosts on mainstream media. Unfortunately they are not as popular as jogging and bootcamps.
Our student initiated the preparation for his upcoming NCAA season by increasing his strength over a high volume of repetitions.
The four weeks of practice are paying off on the mound already.
You don't have to pitch a fastball at 90 mph to benefit from balancing your rotator cuffs. Integrate different forms of external rotations to your workouts to decrease chronic pain and improve your posture.
