    hey yall. i worked out for the first time in a long time. & while i didn't really go that heavy, 2 days later my left shoulder started killing me when i raise my arm. i assume if i really did anything bad to the rotator cuff, like a tear, i would've felt it right away & not like 36 hours after working out. but what is the best thing for me now really? moving it a lot to stretch it, or trying not to move it?

    I'd have to go ahead and suggest you attempt a 1 RM barbell military press. start with 225.


















































    just stay off it for a few days man, see how it feels. if its not better hit the doc.

    gotta warm up your rotar cuff and maybe ice the ol' rotar and take it easy with the weight so you wont damage your rotar cuff anymore.

    you need to warmup the entire shoulder girdle/capsule area before lifting every time.

    I would stretch, ice, and do some external rotations and scaption work for it.
