Rows and Pulls For The External Rotator Cuff
Like you, I believe that I got enough work for my external rotator cuff from pulling movements...that makes sense.
Evidently, that wasn't true for me. I found that I needed more external rotator cuff work, along with some overhead pressing.
Overhead Cable Pressing
One of the problem from constantly doing the bench press is tight shoulders. That is why Olympic Lifters limit bench press training.
What I found is that overhead cable pressing helped with my shoulder rehab by stretching my pec. For me that really helped improve my shoulder condition.
Kenny, don't know if you're still following this thread, but I have a question specifically on overhead cable pressing, which is, in short, what's the different between this and barbell press? Why this and not barbell pressing? Why can this help when barbell pressing may make it worse?
BTW, I've been doing the rehab workout for weeks now, getting good results, and am carefully reviewing this thread again, there is a lot of very good information here, which I'm going to try to boil down and summarize, stay tuned...
