Rotator Cuff Exercise Routine For Rotator Cuff Injury

www.LeeHayward.com In this video clip I want to share a shoulder warm up routine that I like to do before each of my workouts. These quick warm up exercises help to prevent and heal nagging shoulder and rotator cuff problems. If you have ever felt a sharp pain in your shoulders while weight training then this is a sign a shoulder injury commonly referred to as a rotator cuff injury. Which basically means you tore or strained the muscles and tendons in the rotator cuff. And even if you don’t have any shoulder problems now, it would still be a good idea to do this shoulder rotator cuff warm up routine prior to your workouts to help keep your shoulders healthy and prevent any future injuries down the road. These are the exercises that I like to do before each of my shoulder workouts. Just use very light weights and perform high repetitions. In this video I’m using 5 lb. dumbbells, but you could even start off just using the weight of your arms until you get used to the exercises. Basically you just need to work the shoulders through various planes of movement to warm up the muscles and tendons and to circulate blood throughout the shoulders. The exact order of the exercises is not that important. What is important is that you go through the movements, doing 20-30 reps of each movement to really warm up the entire shoulder complex before moving on to heavy weight training exercises. In the video I go through a sequence of rotator cuff rotations. Standing Dumbbell Flyes
