The infraspinatus muscle is located in the shoulder blade and is responsible for rotating the arm outwards. Strengthening this muscle is important for maintaining shoulder stability and preventing injuries.
One effective exercise for targeting the infraspinatus is the external rotation exercise, which involves using a resistance band or light weights to perform controlled rotations of the arm away from the body. Another exercise is the prone horizontal abduction exercise, which involves lying face down on a bench and lifting light weights or using resistance bands to perform horizontal abduction movements.
By incorporating these exercises into your routine, you can effectively strengthen and stabilize the infraspinatus muscle.
