Sidelying dumbbell external rotation exercise

The sidelying dumbbell external rotation exercise is one of my favourite rotator cuff exercises.  Start by lying on your side and placing a towel or something similar between your elbow and torso.  Make sure you position your shoulder girdle into a comfortable position (avoid letting it roll forward).  Keep the angle between your upper and lower limb (humerus and radius/ulnar) at a 90 degree angle and lift the weight from your waist to a height that is comfortable.  Make sure you keep your elbow tucked in by the side of your body.
