A couple months ago I had shoulder reconstructive surgery repairing my labrum. I have been rehabbing my shoulder and am now at the point where I almost have full range of motion. My physical therapist said I can begin weight training again but im not exactly sure what exercises to start with and how to progress. So far I have been doing light dumbbell floor presses, rows, shrugs, and tricep pushdowns. In addition I am just starting to do pushups.
Although my physical therapist said I can begin lifting again, I am not sure what to avoid and how to transition into performing compound lifts. Would anyone have any tips on transitioning into deadlifts and front squats(using straps) after shoulder surgery? Are these movements ones that I should wait to reintroduce to my programming or should these not put much stress on my shoulder?
Any advice is appreciated,
