We use our shoulders in many aspects of daily life and rely on them for quite a few of the tasks and activities we perform everyday. Shoulder pain and injury affects millions of people around the world each year, and this post intends to show just a few exercises and products that can be used to help improve shoulder strength and promote rehabilitation.
The exercise in the video above uses the Rainbow Mini Loop Bands to work on shoulder strength and stability. To perform the exercise, stand in front of a wall and loop the bands around your hands. Then, pin your hands against the wall with your thumbs facing towards you, and retract your shoulders. Stretch one hand out to the side, and then move the other hand to meet it. Then repeat in the opposite direction.
