When it comes to rotator cuff exercises, you have to be very cautious and specific in order to recover from or avoid a rotator cuff injury.
Great Safe Exercise for the Rotator Cuff

Grab a dumbbell, starting off with a light weight until you can get the technique right. Start loading it up, getting heavier and heavier. This exercise is called the Farmer’s Carry.
Carry a dumbbell in one hand. Set your shoulders, bringing the shoulder blades back in an angle and tightening those muscles around your shoulder blade. Start walking in a smooth controlled manner while still maintaining that position to make the shoulder blades tight and active. With this exercise, you are activating the scapular stabilization muscles; those shoulder blade muscles that are very important in recovering from and preventing a rotator cuff injury.
Give that exercise a go! If you have an old rotator cuff injury, are recovering from an injury in your rotator cuff, or if you are worried about injuring your rotator cuff, the Farmer’s Carry is a good safe exercise.
