The training program consisted of both dynamic and isometric sets of shoulder flexion, extension, abduction, scapular plane shoulder abduction (scaption), internal rotation, and external rotation.
The IS and SS muscles play significant roles in scaption (Escamilla et al., 2009), while the SS is more effective in general shoulder abduction because of its moment arm.

and shrug THIS is a slight variation on the conventional shoulder raise and targets the shoulders and upper back.
General strengthening of the supraspinatus muscle may help minimize potential shoulder problems and can be best accomplished with an exercise called scaption
The phase included scaption exercise (0 -30 degree abduction), internal, external rotator strengthening exercise (0 degree of abduction, scaption (0-60 degree), internal and external rotators (45 degree of abduction), and biceps (0-90 degree) exercise.
According to the patient, among trained exercises, the following are still conducted: Push up, push up plus, neck strengthening exercises, scaption, and biceps strengthening.
Other possible exercises are low rows, scapular punches, scaption
and scapular protraction exercises.
The supraspinatus is best trained with an exercise called scaption
. To do this, hold your arm at the side of your body and then lift it straight up and slightly forward, with your thumb pointing forward, until the arm is parallel with the floor.
