    it's hard to say, upright rows were 'thrown into the abyss' because they were SHOWN to cause shoulder impingement. Yet with a highly compound exercise such as the TGU its easy to assume it strains the joints, especially the shoulder in this case.
    I haven't done these in a long time, and i'm going to start soon, and I just have this philosophy:
    -Everything is a double-edged sword, weigh the sides and then decide

    The TGU is a great core/shoulder exercise that targets every muscle, even if we assume that with correct form its bad mechanically, do the benefits outweight the costs? And will conditioning your shoulders better aleviate the pain since you get used to the mechanisms? In the end its your personal choice, I personally AM a fan of them, although thats probably irrelevant if you're deciding if they're the best for you.

    These are a great exercise. My best was half bodyweight with 115lbs. I weighed 225-230 at the time. Builds great stability and strength in the shoulder joint as long as you build up the weight over time. I say do them if you are into strength and require flexible and strong shoulders. Be prepared to drop the weight if you lose it though, never fight a weight that is out of position, that is how you will hurt yourself with this lift. If you aren't prepared to drop the dumbbell then don't do the exercise.

    So long as you don't have any serious limitations the only way to hurth your shoulders doing the TGU is if you're doing it wrong. Take the time to learn the exercise and perform it properly and you'll be fine. I've rehabbed a lot of bad shoulders with the TGU.
