Shoulder Stability Drill
From: FM 7-22 October 2012


The shoulder stability drill (SSD), Figure 6-2, is designed to develop strength and stability of the shoulders. This drill consists of five, 4-count exercises performed at a SLOW cadence for five repetitions each. The SSD may be performed between preparation, strength, and mobility activities along with 4C and the HSD to better prepare Soldiers in the toughening phase for the rigors of conditioning, climbing, push-up and sit-up drills, and the STC. Soldiers recovering from shoulder injuries may perform exercises in this drill as part of rehabilitation and reconditioning according to their medical profile.
