Rotator Cuff Exercises


After starting up Tennis again I’m already experiencing what I think is a rotator cuff irritation so it’s time to look for some rotator cuff exercises so hopefully I can play without injury or pain.   It’s hard getting old!

The Rotator cuff is a complex of thin muscles on your shoulders that allow the extensive motion you have in this area – motion that allows things like ball throwing and racket or club swinging, and more.   Irritation in this area is very common, especially with sports, and should be considered potentially serious.   Rotator cuff exercises help prevent injury to the shoulder.

Rotator cuff exercises:

Side-lying lateral raise.   Instructions from “FitBie”

Standing rows with free weights and tubing.  Not sure if this is what is meant by that or not:

Prone horizontal abuduction.

Wall pushups.

Internal and external rotation.
