Rotator Cuff Strengthening Exercises | Advanced

by - 3:35 PM



In a former post found here, we discussed the best rotator cuff exercises for early in the rehabilitation process for isolating the rotator cuff muscles and increasing their basic strength.

Once you have established basic isolated strengthening of the rotator cuff muscles, it is time to begin integrating them into more complex and functional movements.  Below are 3 exercises that I prescribe often to challenge the rotator cuff as a dynamic stabilizer of the shoulder.  The focus of these exercises is control, so don’t just rush through them.  Keep an active shoulder the whole time.
