I’ve seen so many athletes do this exercise the WRONG way. ⁣ ⁣

 

If you care about increasing velocity, performance and reducing risk of injury, you need to get it right. ⁣ ⁣

 

Keys to this one:⁣

🔑 Arm at side. Try not to push the arm away from the side. This uses the deltoids and compensates reducing activity of the rotators. ⁣ ⁣

🔑 Set the shoulder blade first. Down and back. This is where most people go wrong. ⁣ ⁣

🔑 Focus on squeezing using the muscles in your shoulder making every rep count. ⁣ ⁣

🔑 Make sure you go slow on the eccentric (return to starting position) phase. This is where the magic happens.⁣ ⁣
