Many of you have seen a few of the trainers using the contraption in the picture above. It appears to be scrunchie bands attached to one of the squat cages. The contraption I’m referring to is Crossover Symmetry and I’m going to give you a quick overview of why we use it and what it’s used for.
I have shoulder issues that stem from many years of playing baseball. Many times during my career I continued to throw when my arm was basically hanging and needed rest. This has caused some issues that I’ve dealt with and come up during overhead movements or any general shoulder workouts. My PT gave me plenty of exercises to do but honestly I would never really stick to the plan. Enter Crossover Symmetry.
Crossover Symmetry is a rotator cuff and scapular strengthening system engineered to enhance shoulder health and performance. I’ve been using it for the past two months and have seen some fantastic improvement in my shoulder strength and flexibility.
Here’s a few of the benefits to using the system:
- Activate the essential shoulder foundation muscles prior to activity
- Optimize the mechanical position and movement of the shoulder complex
- Prevent/Cure mild shoulder impingement through Scap-Cuff Activation
- Increase the tensile strength of the rotator cuff tendons
