Compound Exercises and Rotator Cuff

What compound exercises can I use to strenghen my rotator cuffs. I’m currently using the cuban press. What about one armed snatches and high pulls? I get bored doing the standard isolation exercises.

I’m no expert, but I don’t think there are any compound movements for rotator cuff. Basically, stick to L-flyes in the various directions to strengthen the 'cuff, and don’t go over 10 lbs.

Why do you think your rotater cuff is weak?

Dr Mel Siff recommends overhead squats with a snatch grip.

What about that Cuban rotation thing?
