Muscles Worked in Band Internal Shoulder Rotations
Primary muscles worked:
How to do Band Internal Shoulder Rotations
- Fasten an elastic band at elbow height. Grab the band, step away and stand sideways to the band.
- Grab the band with your arm that is closest to the band’s attachment point. Keep your upper arm close to your side, and bend your elbow to 90 degrees.
- Rotate your upper arm internally (inwards) against the resistance of the band, as far as possible.
- Reverse the movement, and repeat for reps.
Internal rotations against an elastic band train your anterior rotator cuff muscles (subscapularis).
Alternatives to using a band are to use a cable pulley, or a dumbbell (while lying down).
