Muscle Up!

By Ashley & Lizzie

muscles groups
Muscles Groups:
  • Erector Spinae and QuadratusLumborum (QL)
  • Rotator Cuff
erector spinae and quadratus lumborum
Erector Spinae and QuadratusLumborum

The Erector Spinae and QuadratusLumborum are located in the lower back

Deep muscle

rotator cuff
Rotator Cuff

Group of muscles/tendons that act to balance and stabilize

SITS consist of Supraspinatus, Infraspinatus, Teres Major, & Subscapularis

stretches rotator cuff

Stretches:Rotator Cuff

Purpose: To stretch rotator cuff muscle


Pendulum Stretch

How To:

Using one hand for support, allow the opposite hand hang freely.

Move your arm from side to side, and then forward and back. Once you gain momentum, begin to swing the arm in a circular motion.

Repeat on supporting arm.


Passive Interval Rotation

How To

Begin with both hands grasping the ruler. One with a firm hold, other lightly.

Horizontally, pull the stick in the direction of the lighter grip until a slight tension is felt.

Hold the pulled position. Then repeat with switched grips and direction.


Sleeper Stretch

How To:

Lying on one side completely, using the arm against the surface bend at a 90 degree angle.

With the other arm, bend the angled arm down until a slight a slight stretch is felt in the back.

Hold and repeat on other side.

shoulder internal rotation exercise
Shoulder Internal Rotation Exercise

How to:

With the palms turned inward, hold the grip at mid-bicep curl.

Making sure the elbow is fixed, pull the arm across the abdomen. Continue to repeat on other side.


Do not rotate the shoulders.

Higher reps work best for smaller rotator cuff muscles.

Purpose: This exercise is to strengthen your scalpularis muscle

Note: Cable or exercise chord is required

shoulder external rotation exercise
Shoulder External Rotation Exercise

How To:

Laying on one side, use opposite hand for the dumbbell resistance by bending the arm at a 90 degree angle.

With the other hand, rest at the side and slowly lower arm to original position.

Once desired repetitions are achieved, switch sides.

Purpose: This exercise is to strengthen teres minor / infraspinatus muscle.

Note: Dumbbells are required for this exercise. Lighter weights are recommended for beginners.

front lateral raise exercise
Front Lateral Raise Exercise

How To:

With both hands grasping the cable handles, place one foot onto cable.

With a slightly bent elbows, raise the cable until upper arms reach shoulder height.

Next, slowly lower the cables to original position. Repeat.


Maintain posture though-out exercise.

Purpose: This exercise is to strengthen the supraspinatus muscle.

Note: Cable Chords are required.



Erector Spinae

why is your lower back so important
Why is your lower back so important?
  • Your lower back muscles, like the erector spinae group, are important to exercise and stretch because these muscles support and stabilize your spine.
  • Increasing muscle strength in the lower back may help increase skill of specific sport athletes. For example increasing the muscles may help a soccer player with overall lower body strength to help running, and kicking the ball.
muscles in the erector spinae
Muscles in the Erector Spinae.
  • The erector spinae is a group of lower back muscles. There are three muscles involved in the erector spinae group, these muscles are;
  • Iliocostalis
  • Longissimus
  • spinalis

Super man

Lay face down on the floor with your arms and legs extended straight out from your body. Without moving your torso, keep arms and legs straight and lift them up.

Side Plank

Lift your body of the ground and balance on one forearm and the side of your foot. Contract your abdominals and relax your shoulders.

Side Bend (dumbbell)

Stand with feet shoulder width apart, Knees should be slightly bent, bendto the left to a comfortable position. Hold for 2-3 seconds. Repeat on Right.
