Band High Reverse Pull

By Kevin

High Reverse Pull

The back of the shoulders, by comparison, are often neglected.

This type of muscular imbalance can contribute to shoulder pain and injuries, not to mention a "hunched forward" appearance and poor posture.

As a result, it is important to incorporate exercises into your routine that target the back of the shoulders, to mitigate some of the side effects of slouching and the High Reverse Pull happens to be an excellent option.

The Rotator Cuff is a group of muscles and tendons which function to stabilize the shoulder. Rotator Cuff injuries are all too common. This movement will gently strengthen the Rotator Cuff if an injury is present.

An exercise band works best, if one cannot be found, a belt can be substituted.

Grasp the band at eye level with your hands just outside shoulder width. Knees bent in an athletic stance with the abdominals tucked in. Exhale and pull wide and back, finish at the top of the chest, while squeezing your shoulder blades together for a couple of seconds and slowly release.

For modification using a belt, keep a soft grasp, and make sure to concentrate on bringing the shoulder blades together.

Repeat 15-25 times for 3 sets.
