Arthroscopy is the best method with the shortest recovery time. I believe all Shoulder problems can be fixed with arthroscopy.

Position of the Scapula

could someone explain what the position of the Scapula should be in this exercise?
Does it follow the move or it should stay squeezed and as close as possible to the VERTEBRAL COLUMN

we train alternatively the right/left side.

When do we train the left side?
When we twist towards left or
when we twist towards right?
