My shoulder is starting to feel better, and I'd like some advice on what exercises would help to strengthen and rehab it best. I believe the problem has been rotator cuff tendonitis brought on by incorrect technique on cleans and snatches (using the shoulder rotation to lift rather than a purely vertical motion) and by boxing. I've been off snatches and cleans for 6 weeks and had a cortisone shot. I've been doing rotator cuff strengthening exercises with a theraband. In the past week, I've gotten enough ROM to do dismounts.

I know that we don't like single body part exercises but I think they can be recommended for rehab purposes where you need to control the movement very specifically. I was thinking of starting back with very light Arnold presses and perhaps lateral raises.

Thoughts?

Are you familiar with 'shoulder dislocates' with a db or kettlebell?
I have suffered from shoulder discomfort due to previous injuries for years. Tom Corrigan demonstrated dislocates and kb halo's and I have experienced a 'miraculous' change.
My shoulder is stronger and the discomfort is alleviated.

you know, I said "dismount" in my post but I meant "dislocate" but I only do it with a broomstick. Is there some information on how to do it with a db or kettlebell?

Thanks!
