    I would get the surgery as soon as possible. I also had a labrum tear. Specially called a slap tear. I tried working out without the surgery but it just got progressively worse over time. So two January's ago I had arthroscopic surgery to repair it. It took 6 months of rehab to get back full function of my shoulder but it was worth it.

    But if you must wait and need to work out here is what I recommend. From what I know each labrum injury is slightly different. You need to test the pain threshold on your individual range of motion for pushing and pulling exercises. Test pushups. Test pullups. Test over head presses. test rows. By common sense...determine what you can and cannot do. The pain will give you a good indication.

    No one on here can give you a definitive answer for exercise selection. That will be determined by how your able to manage around the injury. Again, I would get that surgery as soon as possible. Working out with something torn in the shoulder can be a recipe for disaster.

    I can do shoulder presses, I can do pullups and pushups as well.
    I cannot do upright rows without pain.
    I can bench fine, but if i move my shoulders around my shoulder pops a little and it kinda hurts...

    any suggestions man?

    I tore my anterior labrum over 2 years ago and after the arthroscopic surgery and the open surgery followed by 6 months rehab its still not 100% (and never will be). Due to the fact I ignored the doctor and still worked out pre op I did a hell of alot more damage (due to the repeat partial dislocations from the torn labrum that shredded the cartilage)...

    and yeah 2.5 years later I've only really been able to start hitting the shoulder again properly.

    I wouldn't focus on making progress, but maybe maintaining your gains until the surgery?? Because a lot of exercises involve the anterior delt and hitting it hard until your surgery will probably continue to damage it. I'd suggest maybe to lay off the freeweights for shoulder and chest related exercises and hit the machines? You can keep you form spot on for every rep which will help avoid further injury. I've also noticed with my injury reducing the range of motion of the movements slightly helps heaps with avoid the sharp pain I used to get in the lower part of a lot of pressing movements (most of the machines at my gym can be preset for ROM which is helpful). Maybe the cable station for things like cable flys, raises etc...

    Anyway.. just some ideas.. I wouldnt hit it too hard until your fully recovered... I know, I wish I didnt :s

    Sup, I'm 7 months after surgery and feeling pretty good. About the diet, I'd focus on eating healthy, lots of antioxidants, as well as try and load up on Omega 3's and multi vitamins until 2 weeks post surgery. I'm no doctor but after research, you want to keep all your nutrient levels at above capacity to help with the healing. I also heard that taking omega 3's help heal and reduce inflammation. My ortho told me that my recovery time was amazing.

    I'm no doctor so make sure you ask him if you have any health issues or liver or kidney disabilities. Just stay away from junk food and fast food.

    There are a number of rotator cuff exercises (the same as done in PT) that develop the shoulder. Some people I have talked to have to perform them regularly or their shoulder is as you have described, others are lucky and don't have to.

    When will it get better? I don't mean to brush you off--but everyone has it different. The best advice I can give would be to incorporate attention and regular workouts for your shoulder into your lifestyle.

    I am 6 mos out and find that I can do anything like normal (except heavy weights) as long as I workout my should twice a week for 20-30 minutes. If I skip-then I get aches and pains.

    Very true. I'm 7 weeks out from 270 degree fraying/tear that required six anchors. Obviously, the poster above and myself are younger which means we are likely to heal faster. I've learned trying to compare your surgery/outcomes is kind of dumb because every repair has so many complex variables that eventually affect outcome. Take my friend who had 3 anchors put in in June 2013 and plays college baseball, he says he is now fully recovered but just very recently it felt "normal". Best of luck to you sir!
