    One more pointer: If you can do so pain free, bring your overhead press all the way down, that way it activates your upper chest at the bottom.

    Also, it's important to do rotator cuff workouts several days per week, if you want to rehab this thing.

    There's what I've been doing, all you need is one resistance band and some kind of long...

    It's odd, but I've recently noticed the same thing!

    I can't bench, barbell or dumbbell, without pain, but I can do weighted chest dips.

    I was doing weighted push ups until I figured out I could...

    You said you tried widening your stance, but have you tried a narrower stance?

    It's actually a wider stance that places more stress on the hip flexors.

    I really never noticed an issue. I look at is as the midpoint between standing oph, where the core is the most engaged but you have the least advantage of pressing your feet into the floor, and...

    Try pyramidding up and down, like this:

    1-2-3-4-5-6-5-4-3-2-1

    Once you can pyramid up to 8 reps, change it to this:

    1-2-4-6-8-10-8-6-4-2-1

    Once you can exceed this, revert to the first...

    Just do them seated, man, if you don't need back support to do them standing, why do you need it to do them seated?

    Since I consider deadlifts more a lower body movement, I'm going to say pull ups.

    I'm assuming you're doing these freeweight and not on a machine? Doing these, I find it's best to make sure the weight you're using allows for ease of balance during the lift, with a smooth,...

    Couldn't you also test this by seeing how fast your muscles fatigure while lifting? For example, lift your 10RM for 10 reps, rest 2 minutes, do another maximum effort set at the same weight, rest...

    Most people can lift more weight on pulls ups than bent rows.

    The primary mover on pull ups is your lats. Bent rows to about 45 degrees makes heavy use of the lats, but also arguably makes...

    They would be sufficient, but it would be good to add something else in, such as another squat variant and leg curls, or throw in lunges after your squats and deads.

    Not bad, but you're dangerously close to rounding your lower back, bring your hips down a bit more at the start of the lift.

    But even when I do them with palms out I feel them a lot in my lateral delts, though I agree the anterior delts do come more into the movement that way.

    Hmm...So, you're saying that, in the below vid, the guy's shoulders are internally rotated?

    If you can't so a single push ups then try modifed push ups (on your knees) or incline push ups (hands raised on an elevated surface).

    I felt them better in my rear delts doing them with a barbell, though this may be subject to individual variation.

    Well, that doesn't make a lot of sense because lateral raises are a lateral delt isolation exercise and you do them by abducting the humerus with the shoulder in an externally rotated position.

    It's difficult to keep the weight in place with dumbbells. A barbell keeps the weight behind you.
