02-03: SELF AS­SESS 90/90 SHOUL­DER EX­TER­NAL RO­TA­TION SCREEN

New Zealand Golf Magazine - - PGA OF NZ -

Stand side onto a mir­ror, bend your el­bow so it is 90-de­grees to your up­per arm and par­al­lel to the floor.

With­out bend­ing your torso, or lift­ing your chest, ro­tate the arm back­ward, so it raises your hand to­wards ver­ti­cal, as in im­age num­ber 2.

Keep that 90-de­gree re­la­tion­ship be­tween your up­per arm and fore­arm.

STOP IF YOU FEEL PAIN at any time (and do not at­tempt The Fix ex­er­cise)

If the fore­arm an­gle does not equal the spine an­gel (as in im­age num­ber 2) you may have lim­ited ex­ter­nal ro­ta­tion.

Ide­ally your fore­arm an­gle is at least equal to your spine an­gle, or op­ti­mally greater than your spine an­gle, as in im­age num­ber 3.
