Mini Band Reach

The ultimate performance Event out there

One-Rep MAX

Strengthening your rotator cuff muscles and stabilizing the shoulder in full range of motion that is commonly used throughout the general population to sports athletes.
If you are looking to maintain strong rotator cuff, and forearm muscles to prevent injury during overhead athletics like tennis and baseball, then this exercise and many more exercises may be for you.
 
Of course, not every injury can be avoided, but by keeping your arms strong and
mobile, you may be able to reduce the likelihood of injury while participating in overhead sports or just overuse of the shoulders.

Place a loop band around the wrists. Hold the arms in front of the body with the elbows bent at 90 degrees.

Palms should be facing each other. Keep the forearms parallel to each other (with tension on the band) and begin to slowly bring the hands upward, keeping a 90-degree bend in the elbows.

When the upper arm is at the level of the shoulder, begin to extend the elbows and raise the arms overhead.

Slowly return back to the starting position. Throughout the movement, keep the forearms parallel to each other with tension on the band.

These muscles, namely the rotator cuff muscles and the scapular (shoulder blade) stabilizers, help to move your shoulder and arm appropriately when performing overhead throwing and serving.
