Hi, this is a follow up from the following thread
In one sentence, through neglect my rotator cuff muscles are very weak and on the left side, one or more of the muscles is inflamed, causing pain.
I plan to let that settle down and then get back in the gym, starting light and prioritising the rotator cuff muscles i.e. bring them up to scratch.
I would like advice on exercises (not for RC muscles i.e. chest, back, arms) that cause minimal stress on the shoulders?
When the pain goes away and I am prioritising the RC muscles, I was going to train my legs more and would like to train my arms more but not sure if I would get away with it in relation to going heavy and the stress I would put on shoulders.
What bi/tri exercises cause the least resistance on your shoulders?
I'm inclined to just do isolation exercises but when thinking about it, I can't really work out what's best...
This is all so that I can do something in relation to lifting weights... It depresses me when I can't go do much, would also like to bring my arms up to scratch. Legs are ok but would like to take advantage anyway and hit them harder/more often.
Obviously if it could do more bad than good then I would hold off...
