Exercise tips:

  • Keep your upper arm close to your side while holding a dumbbell in your working hand with your elbow bent at a 90-degree angle.
  • As you slowly externally twist your shoulder, raise the dumbbell away from your body. Use your shoulders, not your arms, to your best advantage.
  • Avoid utilizing momentum and keep control of the movement the entire time. As you raise the dumbbell, exhale.
  • Only rotate the shoulder as much as you can without hurting it while maintaining appropriate form. Don’t push yourself too much.
  • To begin, perform 2-3 sets of 10-15 repetitions for each arm. Use a weight that pushes you but yet enables good form.
