Shoulder Exercises - Dumbbell External Rotation
Primary Muscles: Infraspinatus, Teres Minor
Secondary Muscles: Middle Trapezius
  1. Lie on your side with a towel between your elbow and waist. Your elbow is in line with your shoulder and directly above your waist. Your elbow is bent to 90 degrees of flexion and your forearm is extended in front of your body.
  2. Bring the weight up and away from the floor so that it makes an arc. You are rotating your forearm around your elbow.
  3. Slowly lower the weight to starting position.

Helpful Hints:
Use light weight with this exercise. It is common for strength to decline quickly. If this happens, avoid lifting the elbow off the towel. Keep the elbow fixed and decrease your range of motion if need be.
