Rotator fix Exercise Hi. This is Chinyere. And we’re going to do an exercise called the Rotator Fix. I like to give that a nickname the shoulder burn. You really feel those tiny little muscles in that shoulders working like crazy. I want to get down, laying down on you side. And the reason I’m laying in this position is because it’s a great way to isolate your rotators. I want to take a dumbbell, one pound, two-pound, whatever is comfortable for you and going to keep your hand knocked into your side. Hold the dumbbell, make sure that you do not rotate those knuckles. Keep it to a 90-degree and you’re going to bring it up and down, up and down, up and down, and you can really feel this in the deltoids, that’s why they called this a shoulder burn. Oh my God you do several of this, ah, these shoulders baby will be working. Now, we’re going to go onto another style which is you’re going to flip the dumbbell up, facing upwards and you’re going to bring it back as if you’re going to hit the wall. So, it’s down and up. You want to make sure that this hand stays locked in to your side. Down and up. As if somebody was right behind you with their hand and you’re going to take the dumbbell and hit right in the back of their hand. Down and up, down and up. Oh my gosh! I feel this burn in my deltoids like crazy. And I know you will be too. The movements look very simple, but they do their job. Another thing you can do, take the same dumbbell in you hand and you just flip the wrist. Nice and controlled. Just flip across, flip up, flip back, flip up, flip back and if you continue doing this for a good 60 seconds, you will really feel that burn in all those little tiny muscles in the shoulders. And you always want to make sure the movement is nice and controlled.
