Wednesday Rehab – How to use the Plank to help fix Shoulder Impingement

Serratus drill that turns the simple plank (which I normally think is a pretty poor exercise in itself, personally because it is so static) into an “Iso-Integration” drill for excellent rotator cuff and Serratus activation. We discussed doing scapular work in the forward plane for safety last week, and this shows another way to progress this in the midst of normal training you might be doing with athletes.

“Iso-Integration” is taught extensively with Rehab Specialists means that Theraband tension is used during the functional movement to super-activate smaller stability muscles. It turns a Functional Movement into a Rehab Movement, basically. As long as you have no shoulder pain at all during the drill of course
