Re: There goes that shoulder again..

Why are you doing clean and jerks if you have shoulder pain/instability?!? First things first, make sure the pain isn't just from banging the weight on top of your arm. That can make for a little pain redness if the bar doesn't land correctly.

Rotator cuff exercises are fine, but why are your external rotators aggravated?

Bad thoracic posture?
protracted shoulders?

How's your form? Are you being coached on how to move and hold your shoulders safely during the movement?

Ice it up, and REST!

Slower speeds mean more stabilization at the joint level. There's a lot of shoulder exercises you can do without high-speed power exercises.
Foam rollers suck!
