    Coming back from a shoulder injury

    Hey all, I tore my right rotator cuff a couple of months back and last week I tried a couple of sets of dumbell bench presses and was shocked when I could barely push 50 pound dumbells. I'm lookin for a routine to get me back into it and help me strengthen my shoulders.

    I've always had weak shoulders, back in 1997 I tore my left rotator cuff and in 2000 I banged up my right shoulder pretty bad, and now a couple of months ago I tore my right rotator cuff.

    I wanna build up my strength too, since my shoulders are messed up I never really was able to push heavy weights and considering my size I feel like a bitch when I'm in the gym and I see guys half the size of me pushing the same weights.

    Can you guys help me out.

    Back in May, I had SLAP repair..definately put a dent in my workout..even cardio was a bitch. Just take it slow, give you body time to properly heal-do some rotator strenghtening excercises...and try HGH!

    In addition to this:
    Not to sound like a dick, but f*ck what everyone else is pushing bro. So what if they are smaller, and pushing what you are. The only person that cares what you are pushing is you. One of the better things I have learned here by far... It doesn't really matter, as long as you are seeing results .
    You'll be better off down the road if you give your body time to heal up.
    Good luck, and best wishes bro.!

    Only time will help. But you must not do heavy. Be smart eat your pride,lift sensible. Concentrate on auxillary muscells around the rotator cuff so the can take some of the stress off cuff. Do full range of motion but light weight & STRICT form.

    Thanks guys.

    Buff87, what kind of rotator cuff exercises do you do. And where can I find an rehab program online. I've looked around a bit and didn't find anything.

    i agree you need to get some sort of program and rehabilitate your shoulder, i believe a lot of times the PT or whoever you go to, a lot of times uses those "rubber bands" if you guys no what i'm talking about, maybe you should look into getting some of those, or maybe these tech. are out dated now
