The infraspinatus muscle is one of the four muscles of the rotator cuff that plays an important role in external rotation of the shoulder joint. By incorporating exercises that target the infraspinatus, you can improve shoulder stability, reduce the risk of injury, and enhance athletic performance.
One effective exercise for targeting the muscle is the seated cable external rotation. This exercise involves sitting with your elbow tucked into your side and rotating your shoulder to pull the cable away from your body. Another effective exercise is the dumbbell external rotation, which involves lying on your side and externally rotating your shoulder with a dumbbell. By incorporating these exercises into your routine, you can effectively strengthen and build the infraspinatus muscle.
