Cincinnati Reds Strength & Conditioning Coach Matt Krause and star pitcher Bronson Arroyo explained this shoulder strengthening routine to me a couple of years ago. It's a great way to get your shoulders, especially the rotator cuff region, prepared for some serious strength training....... or some throwing!
Krause, who isn't a native of Cincinnati, has certainly developed an affinity for one of the Queen City's favorites. And that is Skyline Chili. That's where the locals get their chili in the form of a "3-way," "4-way" and the ultimate "5-way." So, Matt aptly named this regular shoulder strengthening routine used in the workouts by the Cincinnati Reds players the:
"5-Way Shoulder Routine" .... it's Skyline Time!
