    Strenthening Shoulder Joints

    I'm having difficulty with almost all "push" moves. The exceptions are movements that are done with the elbows in, ie., with elbows out my shoulder joints can't take the stress of heavy weights; My muscles can do well more than my shoulder joints can take. I need really good shoulder joint strengthening exercises. Advice?

    L flyes, internal and external rotations, and the usual presses and raises.

    If pressing with your elbows out bothers you, don't do it.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    Thanks, Paul:

    You were the one I wanted to hear from. One more thing, please. I'm not clear on what is meant by "interanl and external rotations." Please expound on or refer to an article or something.
