Pvc External Rotation
This exercise involves using a PVC pipe to perform external rotations of the shoulder joint. The goal is to strengthen the rotator cuff muscles and improve shoulder stability. The exercise is performed by holding the PVC pipe with both hands and rotating it away from the body, keeping the elbows close to the sides.
Pvc External Rotation Instructions
- Start by standing with your feet shoulder-width apart and holding a PVC pipe with both hands.
- Hold the PVC pipe in front of your body with your palms facing down.
- Slowly rotate the PVC pipe to the right side of your body, keeping your elbows close to your sides.
- Hold the position for a few seconds, then slowly rotate the PVC pipe back to the starting position in front of your body.
- Repeat the rotation to the left side of your body, again holding the position for a few seconds before returning to the starting position.
- Continue alternating rotations to the right and left sides for the desired number of repetitions.
