It also stabilizes the foam roller when performing the shoulder mobility series. At level 5 we teach the Knee Self-correction technique with the Pro-Roller Arch.
The rotator cuff consists of 4 very small muscles, about the size of a piece of sushi. Their strengthening requires much lighter resistance. 2lb. + 4 lb. dumbbells are a safe and appropriate starting point for their strengthening.
