How To Improve Shoulder Flexion

One of the muscles responsible for adduction upwards rotation and elevation of the scapula is the upper trapezius. The upper is innervated by the XI cranial nerve and shares a direct relationship with the eye muscles (III, IV and VI cranial nerve) located in the brainstem. Optimal eye tracking is essential and should be considered when looking at shoulder movement and to avoid possible injuries. A very easy exercise to perform prior to a shoulder workout is an eye workout.
