    Yeah! Before you will even start your workout take 2-4kg dumbbells do 20front rows, 20side...
    Circulate your blood and push it in the muscle!

    Don't do this just pre-sholder but with your chest day too!

    Stay away from the straight bar on chest and shoulder. If you have to use the straight bar for heavy weights (my gym only has 120lb dumbbells) then us a close grip with an arched movement from loe to high

    EVERYBODY has shoulder issues! (well, alot of people do!) i do a series of shoulder stretches before each workout. takes me about 5 minutes. seems to help.

    Do some Rotator-Cuff exercises to warm up. Use cables for laterals and rest your elbow on something just below shoulder height when doing verticals. Use light weight, its not about moving heavy weight but strengthening the core of your shoulder.

    Work your rotator cuff for 3 sets of 12-20 rep range.

    2-3 times a week.


    Dont do heavy weighted dips. Even with good form eventually you will get ur ass handed to you when you get heavy enough. Thats how i got injured.

    Also warm up properly

    And stick to bodybuilding rep range.

    Ull get better results going heavy but its not worth the risk. If i could go back in the future i know i wouldnt go heavy. Even if it gives me leaser gains. Shoulder injuries suck!!


    Also stretching. Start stretching !! And look into shoulder dislocations with a pvc pipe
