I injured my rotator cuff back in January. Should I lift now?

    I hurt mine about 6 months ago. Once I hurt it I took about 3 weeks off of lifting and then re-injured it my first day back in the gym by being stupid. Then I took about another 3 weeks off lifting and got back in the game. I went nearly 4 months without doing any shoulder workout and just this past week I started doing easy movements like shoulder press and side raises.

    For the most part it doesn't bother when lifting because I know which lifts to stay away from. Once in a while it will act up and get sore, but then its gone 10min later... It is kinda weird, I can have 350lbs on the bench press have no issues, or shoulder press the 100lbs dumbells for reps.... Yet I try and do tricep extensions with light weight and it KILLS!

    I am finally seeing the doctor this friday though. I would say if it is still bothering you then see a doctor and get back into the gym but go easy and find the lifts you can do that do not bother it. In the mean-time ice it down if it starts hurting and see a doctor.
