Shoulder stretch with towel
Your shoulder’s internal rotators are part of the group of muscles often used in overhead sports. To stretch these muscles:
- Grasp a rolled-up towel firmly with left hand behind head (thumb down) and right hand behind back (thumb up).
- Gently pull the towel toward the ceiling with your top hand. You’ll feel a stretch in the shoulder of your opposite arm as your lower hand is gently pulled farther up your back.
- Hold for about 30 seconds.
- Switch hands and repeat.
