    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?

    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.

    Ah, I must have misunderstood the post, as I was under the assumption that you had some specific rotator cuff advice that could possibly be shared.
