The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    strengthening shoulders - back from surgery

    Okay guys, so basically my story is as follows:

    I'm 22 years old, 5'10 201lbs

    14 months out of right shoulder surgery - tore the ligament, the surgery tightened me up much more than normal shoulder surgeries since it was so messed up. As a result, I rehabbed for a long time (6+ months) and I still am about 20 degrees off of full ROM. Also as a result of my torn ligament, I had some cartillage wear in my socket, and have a bit of arthiritis in the shoulder, making some lifts and activities difficult, though not impossible. Also, my left shoulder has been separated (while I was in a sling after my surgery on the right one...don't even ask me to explain it )

    I really want to strengthen my shoulders, so I can do what I used to do on the basketball courts. Really the only thing my surgeon told me to stay away from is anything that involves behind the neck pressing, which I always hated and thought was useless (for me) anyways.

    What do you guys reccomend to help me gain strength in my shoulders what lifts, how often, etc. I tend to respond best to higher rep schemes. I guess you can include a back workout too if you feel so inclined. But remember, the key here is restrengthening slowly so I don't set myself back.

    Previous personal records (when I weighed 190, 14%bf, pre-injury):

    bench: 250x1 (flat bb), 85x14 (incline db)
    deadlift: 385x4
    squat: 295x3
