Most people only do exercises for these muscles after they have injured them and the exercises are a part of their rehabilitation. People should be doing these exercises to prevent injuries. Doing them as part of your warm-up is a good idea. The exercises can be done with TheraBands or dumbbells. The movements these muscles perform are internal rotation, external rotation, and abduction of the shoulder.

Everyone hates exercising at first. You have to start and find something you love more than hate. That usually is an exploration process of what you want in your life. You have to write it out. Then you will have a plan to navigate the unknown. When you have a plan it will still be difficult but your written plan will help you succeed and eventually get what you want in your life. Thank You for reading :)
