    I know you're asking the bigger guys but...this smaller guy took a page from BDR and started doing band facepulls. I did add band upright rows as well where I spread the band at the top as well.

    farmers walk (longer with lighter weight, varying hold position, including partial lateral raise type static holds)

    sounds weird but it really increases blood flow to joint.

    stretching chest and shoulder girdle as well.

    lateral raises, shoulder presses, and external rotations with 10lb DB's. Sometimes I'll throw in some band extensions and face pulls.

    Do you all think rotator work should then be done before rather than after?

    very light rotator cuff work before is fine, but heavy work will definitely increase risk of injury.


    btw- moderate/low intensity cardio prior to lifting is always a good idea, especially if older or getting good blood flow to the joints and muscles is an issue. if you already have injuries or instabilities is pretty much a necessity.

    I was told by my therapist to do them after work-outs because your deltoids can over power the smaller muscles around the shoulder capsule. I've had good success thus far.

    rotator cuff muscles are not particulary strong and fatigue easily. training them heavy will strain and fatigue them, so that when they are needed to stabilize during overhead press they may not be able to.

    I do this, usually gets my shoulders feeling fine and doesn't tire me out much.

    static hold means you raise the weight partially and keep it there.

    Something like this, but I change it up on a frequent basis. Takes about 5 minutes.

    Thoracic mobilization (on tennis balls, foam roller or medicine ball)
    Side lying thoracic extension with rotation
    Push-up plus
    Dynamic blackburns
    Scapular wall slide
    High step with scapulo-thoracic rotation
    Lower trap raise
    Posterior capsule stretch
    Closed chain wrist extension mobilization

    thanks for the help, cumguzzler.

    all you have to do is copy and paste from wherever you learned about them.
