Hey, welcome back to the Cave Camp. I'm Coach PJ at CPJ Fitness in San Diego, California. Today, we're using the cable crossover for the rotator cuff. Okay. Now, at the cable crossover unit, I'm going to show you two exercises that are going to work the front and the back of the rotator cuff muscles, meaning the shoulder. So, the first one is we'll do the front. We're going to grab, grab the cables at a comfortable resistance, you'll do a split staggered stance like this, counter-balance. Hold your arms up here and you're going to bring your arms around the front, just like this. Open up, not past the shoulders, soft elbows if you need to and just squeeze in. This is going to work the front of the shoulders for the rotator cuff. Okay. Then, we're going to transition; I'm going to show you when we do a cable crossover, this way when we crisscross the hand grip and we're going to work the back of the rotator cuff muscles. Holding here, soft knees, now I've got a, a wide stance and I'm just going to look up, pull away and squeeze the shoulder blades. This targets the back of the rotator cuff muscles. Back to center and then open up wide. Again, you're going to use a comfortable resistance and squeeze. Make sure you get that squeeze on the backside and that's it. Doing both of those will work both sides of the rotator cuff muscles in the shoulders. Good luck. Once again, I'm Coach PJ, and we just use the cable crossover for the rotator cuff.
