    Minor Rotator Cuff Injury


    So lately I've been feeling a minor pain in my left shoulder and I'm pretty positive that I've been stressing my rotator cuff out too much. To make a long story short, what would you guys recommend I do? Should I do rotator cuff exercises and continue lifting or should I just take a break (if so, for how long)?

    Usually the external rotators (the humerus turning away from the body) are much less trained and or weaker than internal.
    A few things...
    - Lying L-Flyes are good.(very light weight higher reps)
    -Trigger points in the upper arms, traps shoulders
    -Lighter or pressing that does not aggravate it. (Most likely flat BP's and or dips are a bit tougher on the cuff muscles)
    -Take some time to train legs and or hips with more focus while it recovers
