Training Around Rotator Cuff Injury


Last week I noticed my right shoulder didn’t feel right whilst training and over the last few days has got worse and today I was told I had damaged my rotator cuff. I can still lift but I don’t want to do any more damage to it but I still want to train. I have been looking at various high rep routines to keep the volume high but the weights low and will obviously ease off the shoulder movements until its feeling better. Any more advice on this would be great. I can’t just sit on my arse and do nothing

It is as simple as do what doesn’t hurt. If you ever wanted to really work on your squats, now is the time to do it.

You also didn’t state the extent of the damage. Total or partial tear? Has the doc cleared you for PT?
