for RC exercises im gonna do:
is that ok? or am i supposed to only do one of those? and how many days a week should i do those? and i have heard many opinions that it should be done before, and many say it should be done after you do pressing movements, so should i do these exercises before or after presses like bench, etc.?
how many sets do i do for each one, and do i go to failure?> how many reps?
wow alotta questions bt than you!

i already told you about rotators, what ever happened to that routine i gave you and answered all your questions? how's that going?

the rotator cuff can be sensitive for many individuals and to prevent injuries you should take it slowly and build strength.
I know a buddy of mine that was doing a 300 foot hose pull with 2 1/2 inch line and tore his rotator cuff. He can no longer hold his arm above his head without it going completely numb because of a pinched nerve. Now, there's also an exercise you can do with cables. I prefer doing that. I also prefer standing and doing the same movement with dumb bells and also the one you've shown which is shown in the Arnold workout book.

Hate to be a bother here, but any chance I could snag that routine off of you as well? My right shoulder has been bothering me for awhile (impingement I suspect) and any information would be greatly appreciated.Originally Posted by guyfromkop2
