Cable External Rotation (AB)

Grasp the lower pulley handle on a cable machine. Or, if your cable machine has an adjustable pulley, elevate it to approximately the height of your elbow. Keep your arm abducted or away from your body so that your upper arm is parallel to the floor. Maintain this upper arm position throughout the exercise. Your elbow should maintain a 90 degree angle throughout the exercise as well. Rotate your shoulder joint externally, which would mean your forearm would move backwards. Slowly let the weight and your forearm return to the the starting position. This exercise will help to prevent shoulder and rotator cuff pain.
