Stretch the shoulder to reduce muscle tension, improve range of motion and enhance function. The shoulder complex contains four joints (Glenohumeral joint, sternoclavicular joint, acromioclavicular and scapulothoracic joint) and numerous muscles (Deltoid, supraspinatus, infraspinatus, teres minor, subscapularis, rhomboid major, rhomboid minor, trapezius, coracobrachialis, subclavius, pectoralis major, pectoralis minor and several more). … Read the rest
Strengthen the posterior head of the deltoid muscle to develop proportional shoulder strength. The deltoid possess three heads anterior, lateral and posterior. Often times the anterior and lateral heads are stronger than the posterior head. Powerful shoulder require all three heads to be trained properly.
Origin: Scapular spine
Insertion: Deltoid tuberosity
Concentric Actions: … Read the rest
Strengthen the entire posterior shoulder muscles to develop joint stability, proportional strength and reduced injury risk. Build strength and endurance in the scapular retractor muscles, (Rhomboid major, rhomboid minor, middle trapezius and lower trapezius) with isometric resisted scapular retraction. Enhance strength, coordination and endurance in the scapular retractor muscles, posterior deltoid… Read the rest
Perform reverse dumbbell flyes to strengthen the posterior shoulder, rotator cuff and upper back to improve posture and shoulder function. Reverse flyes help to build proportional shoulder strength. Reverse dumbbell flyes develop several key muscles in the posterior shoulder.
Strengthen your rotator cuff muscles to prevent shoulder injuries, enhance shoulder function and improve your posture. Build coordination, stabilize the shoulder joint and balance shoulder strength by utilizing the reverse pitch exercise.
