What would Scott Shetler do? He'd buy a Rotater to keep his shoulders strong AND healthy!

It seems like everyone I know over 35 years old has a rotator cuff "condition". In fact, for the longest time, it seemed like you just weren't cool if you hadn't had some type of surgery, rehab, or physical therapy on your rotator cuff.

Honestly, that's a bunch of BS and rotator cuff surgery does not have to be a "rite of passage" into the later stages or your life, nor does it have to be a "red badge of courage" you show off to your friends and family.

With proper training, including both flexibility and strength through range of motion, the rotator cuff muscles can be developed so that they are strong, flexible, and hopefully injury-free.

Granted, some injuries simply cannot be avoided-for instance an injury incurred due to participation in a contact sport-but, the likelihood can be reduced with proper training. The Rotater allows for just that. This device is an easy to use tool that makes stretching and strengthening the muscles of the rotator cuff a breeze. Once you understand how to properly use this tool (that takes all of about 5 minutes after watching the short video provided with the Rotater) all it takes is about 10-15 minutes of implementing the stretches and strength exercises to gain the benefit of these movements.

I prefer to work these exercises into my upper body training days, after I've completed my heavy pressing movements, there's no scientific mumbo-jumbo behind that, other than I don't think it's a good idea to pre-exhaust the stabilizers of the shoulder before any heavy pressing is performed. However, if you have a shoulder injury, or are going through some type of rehabilitation or therapy, consult your doctor or therapist before adding these exercises into your training plan.

What is the Rotator Cuff?

The rotator cuff is a group of four muscles that connect the upper arm to the shoulder blade (humerus to scapula for you geeks that try to impress people with the fact you took Anatomy and Physiology 101 and 102 - BTW no-one is impressed, so just call it the upper arm and shoulder blade so everyone else who chose not to get their degree in the health sciences understands what the hell you're talking about.)

The muscles (S.I.T.S. is the way to remember them according to the previously mentioned A&P classes) and their respective functions are:
  • Supraspinatus - abduction of the upper arm (i.e. raises it to the side of the body)
  • Infraspinatus - external rotation of the upper arm (i.e. rotates it toward the backside of the body)
  • Teres minor - external rotation of the upper arm (i.e. rotates it toward the backside of the body)
  • Subscapularis - internal rotation of the upper arm (i.e. rotates it toward the front of the body)

All four of the muscles function to stabilize the shoulder joint.

The Rotater - simple and effective!
The Rotater is a simple tool that allows for stretching and strengthening the internal and external rotation function through multiple angles. When you purchase a Rotater, you will get a DVD that gives a great overview of the shoulder joint, the function of the rotator cuff muscles, and directions for using the Rotater to stretch and strengthen the rotator cuff.

I've been testing this device out for a couple of weeks now and am very impressed so far. It takes a couple of minutes of playing around with it to become comfortable with how it operates, yes it's so simple even I could figure it out! 

The device I received came with the strong-arm band which can be easily adjusted to provide more or less tension depending on your strength levels. Please note that unless you purchase the Pink Rotater, the strong arm band must be purchased separately - however it is included with the Pink Rotater, as Pink Rotater sales support Breast Cancer research. In addition you may purchase different strengths of tubing to combine with the strong arm attachment.

The video basically demonstrates three positions each for stretching the internal and external rotation function and three positions each for strengthening the internal and external rotation function. Once you get accustomed to these basic movements, the video encourages you to explore other arm positions since the shoulder is not static.

Who is The Rotater good for? Everyone! Golfers, tennis players, swimmers, baseball players, fighters, strength athletes, kettlebell lifters, general fitness enthusiasts, and the list goes on and on. It is a highly effective, very easy to use, and inexpensive piece of equipment that will provide tremendous benefits if you use it consistently. I recommend it highly!
