Rotator cuff exercises

These rotator cuff exercises will help improve your strength for lifting, overhead movements and throwing. Pick the 3-4 exercises that work best for you and practice them daily to every other day. As a general rule, the higher you raise your arm overhead, the more challenging the exercise will be.

Try to match the form you see in the illustrations and increase your repetitions and / or resistance as the exercises become easier for you. For an introductory routine, see my article on shoulder exercises.
