🔥Sidelying flexion with horizontal Abduction 🔥

Do you have pain in your shoulder with putting a shirt on, reaching out to the side, or maybe into the backseat of your car?

This is a great exercise that mimics those functional demands while strengthening the posterior rotator cuff and the peri-scapular muscles, while keeping that pesky upper trapezius in a gravity eliminated position so it doesn’t cause excessive scapular elevation (AKA shrug) that we see so frequently in the fitness community! Too easy? Add a small weight in your hand! Hit anywhere from 8-12 reps and keep the sets from 3-5.
