Isometric Exercises for the Shoulder

Head shoulders knees and toes knees and toes……..

The next in our Isometric exercise series is the shoulder.

To start, grab a small ball or pillow to use for these following exercises. Focus on shoulder movement and keep the neck muscles relaxed. In each exercise, we are isolating one main muscle to work on. The shoulder has a group of smaller stabilizer muscles known as the rotator cuff muscles that direct certain movements listed below. The rotator cuff muscles are Supraspinatus(abduction), Infraspinatus(external rotation), Teres minor(adduction and external rotation), and Subscapularis (internal rotation). To help you remember this muscle group, think SITS. Warming up these muscles before a shoulder and/or arms workout can help prevent any future injuries. We will also work flexion and extension of the shoulder in these exercises. See the picture below for exercises.
