    Please share your suggestions on properly warming up your shoulders :x:

    ie - what types of exercises for rotator cuff injury prevention..?

    I have found a bit of a nagging injury in my left shoulder, it doesnt hurt necessarily it just gives me a tiny feeling that all is not well inside there.. feels like a slight bit of noisy movement also compared to the right shoulder..

    my fucked up rotator seems to get irritated by bench..
    here is my warm up regime.
    135x12
    225x12
    315x3
    365x3
    at this point i can put on 4 or 5 wheels and get to work.
    I also found bringing the bar to the nipple line and not to the middle/top chest helpd alot.

    yes, but:


    you need more than bench warmup. ive found out the hard way, rotators are fragile.

    i posted mine after neos.. not meaning his was wrong.. but saying.. after you do your rotation.. i personally find doing some light weighted reps will get you "ready to bench"

    oh, ok.. i totally agree then. i think the best 'warmup' ive followed was from max-ot. its something like:
    12x50%
    10x50%
    8x60%
    2x70%
    1x90%
