Main Muscle:

  1. Sit next to a low pulley sideways (with legs stretched in front of you or crossed) and grasp the single hand cable attachment with the arm nearest to the cable. Tip: If you can adjust the pulley’s height, you can use a flat bench to sit on instead.
  2. Position the elbow against your side with the elbow bent at 90° and the arm pointing towards the pulley. This will be your starting position.
  3. Pull the single hand cable attachment toward your body by internally rotating your shoulder until your forearm is across your abs. You will be creating an imaginary semi-circle. Tip: The forearm should be perpendicular to your torso at all times.
  4. Slowly go back to the initial position.
  5. Repeat for the recommended amount of repetitions and then repeat the movement with the next arm.

Caution: Do not use heavy weights for this exercise as if you use too much you risk rotator cuff injury.

Variations: You can use dumbbells for this movement as well as exercise bands.
