I just had an RKC KB person in my office the other day who had trouble externally rotating her shoulders enough to even touch the wall with her hands on the Wall Extensions.

I think we found what a major part of her shoulder problem was right there.

Have you found any better stretch for external rotation of the shoulders than this?

I thought this was interesting as well:

Donald,
At this point, I'm most interested in strengthening the external rotators so that they can maintain the fully rotated position on their own. I want people to be able to externally rotate actively, not passively like in that stretch (and doing PNF in that position only strengthens the internal rotators, something most people don't need more of).

The teacup stuff is nice. I do other shoulder work and find that I can still maintain the teacup capability just fine, so I personally don't have much time for it.
