A great restorative exercise series we have used for years to increase shoulder health. Five simple exercises with very light dumbbells or equivalent. Even arm weight alone with these specific patterns have helped people gently and efficiently.
Directions: Use very light DBs like 1-5 pounds. Perform 6-8 reps of each of the five exercises. Do all reps and all exercises non-stop then rest. Repeat the whole series of 6-8 reps for each five exercises ONLY if you can maintain proper form, if not, quit at one time through the routine then give it 1-2 days of rest before repeating.
*Special thanks to Jade Molina of National Academy of Sports Medicine for sharing this protocol with us over a decade ago! Jade played baseball for the US Navy and trained professional baseball pitchers. This was one of his favorite go-to shoulder routines for restorative strength.
