First, your “forearm” program should not take 40 minutes. Next, what is the diagnosis of your shoulder problem? I suggest reading up on scapula problems, as that is more likely the cause of your rotator cuff problems. good luck.
The forty minutes includes warm up, but it’s incredibly thorough. It’s actually a huge workout, that just targets that area.
My left shoulder hurts when I do military presses, and the pain is coming from the supraspinatus, not the scapula (although I have included a scapula exercise in my RC rehab). I had a habit of leaning on that shoulder all day at work and that overtaxed and injured that tiny muscle. Anyway currently the shoulder is really improving. I broke the leaning habit, and the pain is mostly gone, but I am going to keep on strengthening it for a while until i feel sure I am out of any danger. But meanwhile I can’t do some of my favorite exercises because i am babying the damn shoulder. So I am trying to come up with a routine that won’t exacerbate the problem. Right now all I am doing is the forearm deal, deadlifts, and a core routine. That’s all and it’s the pitts. Anyway thanks for your input gents. I appreciate it.
I just don’t see why you need “an incredibly thorough” forearm routine. You should obviously not overhead press anymore, add in more rows, read all the articles on here about shoulder problems etc.
I need it because I h8 my forearms
Thanks for the advice but I am a little reluctant to start back rowing because it’s hard on the shoulder… See the delima? So many of my faves are just out the window because of takin care of the shoulder
