Dumbbell shoulder external rotation – side lying targets the external rotators of the shoulders. The external rotators are susceptible to injuries and should be strengthened before increasing loads on bench presses, cleans, and snatches. Throwing and swinging motions also put weak external rotators at risk. You may place a rolled up towel under the elbow for better isolation of the infraspinatus and teres minor.
