      I did it with 10lbs, I tried 15lb first and the first/only rep made me say ACK out loud

      Is this the dedicated snap city lift?

      I did something to my right shoulder, I saw this rec'd as a rehab lift

        You're meant to do them with no weight. The highest you should go is 1kg. A tear on your Rotator cuff can do some serious damage

          >go 1lb over bench, cuff tear
          >go 1lb over ohp, cuff tear
          >do any exercise involving the upper body in any way incorrectly, cuff tear
          It's insane to me that people think deadlifts are at all tough when we are designed to do them very efficiently. Meanwhile almost any upper body exercise comes with a very decent risk of permanent injury from rotator cuff injury even when done correctly.

    The fuck is this retarded exercises? At best this is a shoulder warm up with really, really light weight. Surely this is not an actual lift that you progressively overload on?

      What's the point of this? Like a retarded and ineffective combination of a front raise and external rotation?

      It's for the rotator cuff, kind of like face-pull's retarded cousin, except it doesn't require a cable machine

        Yeah but with a facepull the resistance of the cable/band is in front of you, opposite your rotator cuff.
        The resistance of gravity (dumbbells) goes straight down, if you want to challenge the muscle you should do it like this.

        I would try something more akin to the Urlacher row for rotator cuff DB work.

        the exercise itself isn't the problem.
        it's the retard excessive internal rotation and expecting you to pull into external rotation from the get go.

        The appropriate variation of this exercise is to use a dumbbell or cable, put your into press stance with scapula pulled back. Lower until hand is directly in front of you, slowly bring it back to hands towards sky.
        This variation of OPs rotator cuff external rotation should never be used as it has an extremely high chance of impingement and/or tear and only those who are extremely flexible and have complete confidence in their control should do it.
        Which eliminates 99% of people who are doing the exercise. it's the top tier external rotation.

          I have trouble following your description. Do you have a picture or video to demonstrate?

    Do them seated, I do the variation I got from ido portal (just googel it, it's a facebook video he uploaded) and it feels infinetly better and you can actually aim to eventually go heavy. That being said 10lbs might be a bit much to start out with for external rotation, especially since proper form is really important so you don't turn it into some sort of row.

      The shoulder is meant to rotate not press unlike in an OHP, log press or ammo box press. You are retarded.

      If you do any sort of work with Dumbbells start new exercises with 3-5kg weights....

    This looks like a glitch in a fucking vidya game for gods sake - don't take the arm below parallel to the ground and use tiny weights (talking 5lbs/10lbs) its a good way to condition the rotator cuff.
