Limited internal rotation? Poor shoulder mobility? Try this! So many people try the sleeper stretch to improve this range, but this can further cause impingement and isn’t a great motion for the shoulder. Instead we can address both the soft tissue and the joint in a different way that will be more effective! Let me know what you think!
.
Joint Loading: grab a towel behind your back as shown in the video. Now pull up with the top arm repetitively for up to 10-20 reps pulling farther each time. This pulls the bottom arm into more internal rotation and helps clear up the joint.

Instead of pulling the towel straight up, you can also wrap it around the shoulder and pull down like a pulley system if this is more comfortable.
