    How much weight is too much for rotar cuff workout?

    A quick history, I'm a beginner,
    I got a mild to moderate rotator cuff injury due to overuse injury, 5 months ago, so I started rehab as soon as I could.
    Now, I use 4-5 Kgs dumbells for all rotator cuff exercise. Now I've reached like 13 to 18 reps (x4 sets) for all of these exercises, how do I overload?? I don't wanna risk by adding more weight since these are normally weak muscles and most guys who are on AAS don't even lift more than the mentioned weight. (From my personal experience, at least). How to do progressive overloading? More weight doesn't sound safe, more reps won't target strength!! Any help??

    I only use elastic bands to work the RC muscle group.

    Adding too much weight begins to incorporate other muscles, which is not the goal.

    That is something to ask your doctor/orthopedic doc.
    First your technique on how you do movements will be a factor.
    More weight but very slowly if you ok'd to use some weight by your doctor.
    Progressive overload is the only way to get maximumly stronger but if you have an issue i wouldn't go heavier until your cleared to do so.
    No one here really knows your exact issue and are not medical professionals so the advise given here could hurt rather than help IMO.
    Good luck.
