    external rotations

    Hello, I am trying to train my rotator cuff external rotation like this(I am not the guy at the picture).:

    I can feel it in my right shoulder, but when I am doing it with my left shoulder I feel it more in my biceps. Do you guys have any tips for me? I have tried doing the left one as much like the right as I can, but I still only feel it in the biceps, and not in the shoulder.

    rotators are typically prehab exercises - not sure you really need to "feel" it. If you feel it more in the bicep, chances are your biceps are tight. Try stretching them out as well.

    Flex your elbow less.
    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook
