Improve Shoulder Stability: Blackburns

Updated: Nov 25, 2020

The Exercise: Blackburns ⠀

Try out this six-part movement to improve stability of the shoulder girdle! This is a great movement for triathletes to maintain shoulder health throughout their training!

Maintain a palms down position while holding the weight plates. Elbows should achieve 90 degrees of flexion. Don’t rush the movement, you want to feel the retraction of the scapula. Try to keep the arms as high as possible when extending the elbows.⠀

Try 2 sets of 10 to start, using 2.5-5 lbs weight plates.
