Resistance based strength training in conjunction with stretching, is vital to preserving joint integrity and preventing overuse injuries in the rotator cuff. Here are some quick shoulder workouts to stay fit while having fun.
Recently bootcamp style fitness training has been promoting lean muscle growth by using resistance bands in dynamic movement patterns. Build up your arsenal of seated exercises today.
Resistance bands are typically color coded yellow(lightest) to black (heaviest). Chose a band that allows you to complete a maximum of 10-15 repetitions before requiring a rest break due to muscle fatigue.
If your ability permits, scoot yourself forward in your chair while maintaining upright posture with as little support at trunk level as is possible for you.
Things to Remember:
These are not meant to be painful movements. If you feel any sharp pain, tingling, or numbness stop immediately and consult a physician before resuming routine.
