Reply to "External Rotation-What it is and how to improve it"

Jimster- The DriveLine article you reference in your write up talks about the IR issues.

Specifically the Sleeper Stretch.  This is all new to me but has become a hot topic in my household since my son has developed scapular issues.

He has very limited IR on his throwing arm compared to his non-throwing arm.  This is typical of throwers acording to his Physical Therapist. 

 

Also he has been doing Jaeger bands 3 times a week for 2 years now and they are great for the rotator cuff, but don't do much for the back/scapular area.

 

His PT and others recommmend using the Throwers 10 or even Crossover Symetry bands.

 

I am interested in your thoughts on this?  The upper back/scapula the primary launching pad for explosive arm movements appears to be a much neglected topic for throwers.
