    ok. So injured my shoulder. Went to Otho doctor and right now it's small tear in rotator cuff along with bursitis. The funny thing is that I can do shoulder exercises ( most ) but chest exercises like flat bench is excruciating. I'm half way through a cycle and née to keep training. Advice?

    So if it is just a small tear, it is best to work lower body for now as you want to allow the cuff to heal. However once you tear a cuff it will give you some problems down the line.

    Once it heals start very light and go slow.

    Dumbbells for chest day, and have your palms face each other on your pressing movements to take some pressure off the shoulder. Also keep your elbows tucked close to your body, and concentrate on controlling the weight on the way down with your lats. This has always me helped train chest while also allowing me to heal my shoulder problems. And then eventually once its healed I get cocky and do something stupid to hurt the other one lol

    Imo stop the cycle and let your shoulder heal. You don't want to have it cut on later. You can always start another cycle, you can't rip your shoulder off and get a new one, well you probably can but it won't look right.

    Same for me. Tear in posterior labrum

    NO FLAT BENCH!!!!! Just forget about it

    Cable flyes

    You need to get a good rotator cuff program and do it 5x week

    Internal and external rotation is the focus

    ^^^ very intensive, you don't need it all. My shoulders and chest look great and I basically never flat bench. It sux but is what it is. Be happy to answer any questions in PM brotha. Your days of growth and development are not over!!!

    Best to back off any hard training till your shoulder heals. Also do any exercises that the doc advises you to do. For shoulder injury all you basically could do is legs/lower body as well as cardio
