    Those muscles are hard to exercise properly. And the infrascapular is of the essence in keeping the shoulder in place, or so I've heard. By that premise: - Vertical row without bending your arms (only pulling by rotating the scapula). - Elastic band pulling with a straight arm, in abduction, and extrarotation with elbow 90.

    The Blackburns are ok but the guy's form in the second video was atrocious.

    My right shoulder has dislocated 5 times, and I can't really see the issue with doing the DBPCs.

    Basically you are forcing the shoulder directly into the dislocating position.

    Whether or not it causes further dislocation it's going to exacerbate any existing anterior instability if it's not done correctly by forcing the humeral head forward on already lax ligaments. You're also putting yourself at much greater risk of secondary injuries like posterior or internal impingement syndrome.

    There's nothing wrong with exercising the shoulder in that range as an end stage rehabilitation exercise but I wouldn't do it straight off the bat, I wouldn't do it without professional advice and I wouldn't do it until you've got a lot of groundwork in basic scapula stabilisation. I also wouldn't do it the way that guy's doing it ever if you've got a genuine anterior instability problem.

    is really good on activation drills etc for pre-hab, rehab and warm up

    for the reason that
    "Due to faulty thoracic spine extensibility or overactive upper traps, our lower trapezius are often lengthened and weak. This will inherently leave us unstable around the scapulae."
