Today's Fitness Friday features the Banded Cross Flexion.
About the Banded Cross Flexion
The Banded Cross Flexion 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 throwing activities and shoulder stability.
- Standing sideways, hold onto a theraband up at a forty-five-degree angle.
- Engage the core to prevent the body from rotating then slowly pull down to the opposite hip as if you were putting on a seatbelt.
- Slowly return to the original position.
- Repeat with both arms.
