    Overhead Shoulder Press etc.

    Whenever I do this and exercises that involve the same sort or movement I experience pain. I believe this would involve the rotator cuff of some sort or something... So my question is.. is there a way an exercise etc that would strengthen them?
    Maybe I was big in a past life...

    if you're doing them behind the neck, then stop. do them in front and it shouldn't hurt

    if you're not doing them behind your neck, then stop alltogether for a while and see a doctor

    If you're using barbells, dont.

    If you're using dumbells, rest for a while, strengthen then try again. Make sure you're doing them right.

    Try lesser weight and get a full range of motion, I usually bring the bar down just below my chin. Also try stretching the sore shoulder before, during, and after your lift.
