This week’s Agatsu Movement Minute is brought to you by Internal Rotation!
.
Most training programs stress the focus on shoulder external rotation but internal is just as important.
.
Without sufficient internal rotation you can create severe imbalances in your shoulder joint that could also impact your external rotation. Not to mention your abilities to put on your jacket, tie up your bra or scratch your mid back, run or walk properly to manage rotation, perform gymnastic movements like dips or muscle ups, Olympic lifting, defend against many arm locks in jiujitsu…. ok you get my point.
.
So to better work your internal rotation try these KIMURA SIT UPS.
.
Points of performance:
-maintain 3 point stack through exercise
-shoulders in a centralized position
-lead the movement by constantly driving your hand towards the ground.
-hold for a count at the top.
-lower as slow as you can coming down.
-have a dog to distract you from your work 😉
.
Try 3-5 sets of 10 reps each side.
ENJOY!
