High Cable Arm Extension 2
Dr. Eric Serrano MD invented the high cable arm extension to improve development, performance and to prevent injury. Dr. Serrano may help to treat elbow pain with this particular exercise when individual patient assessments identify the movement as being beneficial. A key to success is fixing weaknesses which often occur due to poor training program design. Proper execution keeps the latissimus dorsi down which prevents shoulder impingement.
Dr. Serrano explains the activation of shoulder extension, Lat flexion with rotation, training the oblique line of the fascia and working the posterior head of the shoulder.
Watch the long head of the triceps followed by the medial head activate during the exercise.
Adding the rotation component activates core muscles including the internal and external oblique muscles in a functional manner. Proper rotation also engages the rhomboids and serratus muscles.
