2-1. External Rotation in 30° Abduction (Presented by Chng Chye Tuan, Senior Physiotherapist)

The first exercise we are going to do is called the External Rotation in 30° abduction .

So what we are going to do is the have the fist in this way. And pull the shoudler blade backwards in a neutral position and go in extrenal rotation at a 30° abduction angle.

What this exercise does is to train the infraspinatus and teres minor muscles. These two muscles belong to the rotator cuff muscle group. They will help stabilize the shoulder blade in place with this movement.

So for this exercise, we will be doing it with a mid-cable row. Start off with with slight tension in front of the body. You will pulling out your fist out in a 30° abduction angle and coming back slowly.

So make sure that you are doing this exercise, you are keeping your shoulder blade backwards and downwards. Stablize in that position as your doing an extrenal rotation at 30° angle.

You are going maintain this position and move it in this direction.

This exercise is called External Rotation with a 30° abduction angle.
