Shoulder Exercises

Here are four very simple shoulder exercises . The exercises were developed by Ben Kibler , and he has scientifically proven the positive effect of these particular exercises in relation to stabilisation of the scapula (or shoulder blade).

These exercises train the muscles serratus anterior and the lower trapezius. Typically these are the two muscles that become weakened from painful conditions of the shoulder, especially in cases of tendon impingement and snapping scapula .

AI also recommend 'sleepers stretch' ( which spans the posterior joint capsule ) and stretching of the front of the shoulder by stretching of the pectoralis minor muscle.
