The Most Effective Rotator Cuff Exercise Program
DESCRIPTION for Rotator Cuff Conditioning Exercises:
After the back, the second most common injury a fitness professional will encounter is the shoulder. Most times, shoulder injuries, directly and indirectly, involve the rotator cuff. When fitness professionals hear that their client has a rotator cuff issue, they focus on strengthening. Strengthening is crucial for your rotator cuff client, but it is only one part of an effective rotator cuff conditioning program.
In this webinar, fitness professionals will learn how to avoid common rotator cuff exercise mistakes, the five components of a rotator cuff condition program, and exercises to help their client’s rotator cuff injury. The fitness professional must address all five areas of a rotator cuff conditioning program to rehabilitate the rotator cuff fully. If not, they will only band-aide the injury and not fully help their client overcome their rotator cuff injury.
