Soldier External Rotation – Band, Press

HOW: Attach a resistance band anchored to the wall at shoulder height. Position your body perpendicular to the wall you have it anchored to. With the outside arm, grab onto the band. Move your elbow up straight out from your shoulder while your forearm is bent toward the direction of the anchored band creating a “L” shape. From here, rotate the band outward facing your knuckles to the ceiling, then press up overhead. Slowly come back down and repeat for the prescribed amount of reps    FEEL: You should feel your shoulder muscles working as you rotate and press up the band.  COMPENSATION: Only move your shoulder as you press up overhead. Keep your elbow up straight out from your shoulder as you rotate the band outward.
