Rotator Cuff Exercises


#1

I hear a bunch of stuff on rotator cuff exercises to increase arm speed. I know of a lot of them but which ones are most effective.


#2

It may be a by-product (Speed that is), but the purpose is to make the de-cell muscles stronger. Great preventative stuff to keep from shoulder issues…Looks like a call for…dadadadahhhhhhh…Mr Chinmusic…Where are you with the expertise when needed oh Chin? I would not be so bold as to step into his hallowed ground on this one. My son does them, many any way, light weights and thera-band work but I suggest an expert in field describe what needs be done.


#3

JD is correct. Rotator cuff exercises are preventative medicine. They help stabilize the shoulder joint and make it more resistant to injury.


#4

I concur. Don’t look for speed from these small muscles. Conditioning is the key here.


#5

So what do you guys do to ain velocity?


#6

Proper mechanics, long toss, actually throwing. But with proper mechanics the velocity will come along with good control also.
