7 Exercises To Strengthen Your Shoulder Complex And Make It More Mobile
This blog post will show you different exercises that can help strengthen your upper body and make those shoulders mobile! Get ready for better mobility and performance.
The following shoulder warm-up and strengthening exercises using the Dual Arm Resistance Band will get your muscles moving in a wide range of motions and angles. Workout warm-ups are only beneficial if you are performing them correctly so be sure to pay close attention to your form.
- INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL SHOULDER ROTATION
Two of the most important movements for throwing or hitting are internal and external shoulder rotation. Do small, controlled movements during these two types of exercises.
- ELEVATED INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL ROTATION
Elevated internal and external rotation allows you to warm up the shoulder for overhead and throwing motions. This is a standard exercise for most athletes who extend their arms overhead and externally rotate during their sport.
- FOREARM EXTENSION
The triceps are essential for building upper body strength and helping with movement in your shoulders and elbows. Increasing triceps strength brings stability to your shoulders and arms, improves flexibility, and increases range of motion. This prevents injury and makes it easier for you to use your upper body in your sport as well as in daily activities.
- FORWARD AND REVERSE FLIES
For the front of your shoulder and chest muscles, do a regular fly. To target the back of your shoulder, do a reverse fly. Keep your forearms parallel to the ground when you do this exercise for proper form.
- BICEP CURLS
They help strengthen your arms, which can boost athletic performance and facilitate daily activities. Biceps collaborate in forearm supination, elbows flexion, and shoulder stabilization so stronger biceps help you to maintain a healthy upper body.
- LATERAL SHOULDER RAISE
The exercise can help your shoulders look more defined and broader. It also helps strengthen your shoulders and stabilizes the shoulder joint since the shoulder joint is the least stable.
- L-90 FORWARD FLIES
Having a strong, stable, and well-moving scapula is important for tennis, basketball, cricket, swimming, overhead lifting, or any sport involving the arm.
