The four rotator cuff muscles work to stabilize the shoulder (glenohumeral) joint and create internal and external rotation movements. Two of the rotator cuff muscles (infraspinatus and teres minor) act primarily to create shoulder external rotation. The subscapularis muscle lies on the front side of the shoulder blade (scapula) and works to create shoulder internal rotation. Lastly, the supraspinatus muscle is located near the top of the shoulder and is an important stabilizer of the joint as well as a partial shoulder abductor (imagine lifting your arm out to the side of your body).
Unfortunately, rotator cuff exercises are often left out of traditional strength and conditioning programs. Performing exercises like the ones shown in this program will help keep the shoulder strong and stable and reduce the risk of suffering injuries like rotator cuff tears and shoulder dislocations.
