Today's Fitness Friday features Banded Cross Extension.
About the Banded Cross Extension
The Banded Cross Extension is an excellent exercise for athletes and individuals who play football, softball and volleyball.
This exercise is very effective in strengthening the rotator cuff to assist with a strong "throwing" movement.
- Standing tall, hold onto a theraband in a crossed over position.
- Bring your arm across your body and up to a forty-five degree angle as if you are drawing a sword from your hip.
- Be sure to keep your core engaged so only your shoulder moves.
- Repeat with both arms.
