There are several: The rotator cuff is a series of four muscle tendon units working on the ball portion of the shoulder. The rotator cuff works hand in hand with the shoulder blade or scapular muscles. You do not need a lot of resistance working these muscles.

Resistence: The main function of the rotator cuff muscles are to stabilize the shoulder, so it is not easy to replicate this with exercises. However, we tend to emphasize high repetition, low resistance "external rotation" sets with the shoulder down at your side. This limits damage to the muscles while exercising them. Incorporating shoulder blade (scapular) exercises also help. ...Read more
Yes: It is very common to just focus on the chest wall muscles when working out. While pushups will help strengthen the shoulder(pec, deltoid, lats) i would also advise complementing it with posterior chain/shoulder exercises like rows, pull downs and shrugs. Codman exercises are also good for dedicated cuff strengthening. Keep hands in field of view as general rule of thumb. Indyshoulder.Com. ...Read more

NO: The bench press primarily helps strengthen the pectoralis major and triceps depending on technique, etc. And rather than helping can put added strain on the shoulder stabilizers including the rotator cuff. As with all other lifts, it is important to do these with perfect form and a spotter if using heavy weights.

Is muscle soreness in upper arms and upper thighs a part of spinal stenosis? I am not having much joint pain. 63 years of age
very good range of motion
stiffness after sitting
Common : Common symptoms of spinal stenosis leg pain with walking can be caused by either arterial circulatory insufficiency or from spinal stenosis. Leg pain from either condition will go away with rest, but with spinal stenosis the patient usually has to sit down for a few minutes to ease the leg and often low back pain, whereas leg pain from vascular claudication will go away if the patient simply stops walking. Although occasionally the leg pain and stenosis symptoms will come on suddenly, they generally develop over the course of several years. The longer a patient with spinal stenosis stands or walks, the worse the leg pain will get. Flexing forward or sitting will open up the spinal canal and relieve the leg pain and other symptoms, but they recur if the patient gets back into an upright posture. Numbness and tingling can accompany the pain, but true weakness is a rare symptom of spinal stenosis. An older person leaning over the handle of their shopping cart while making short stumbling steps often has spinal stenosis. Muscle soreness in upper arms could be due to cervical stenosis but there are other reasons as well, like electrolyte imbalance, side effects of medications and myopathy. Recommend seeing a specialist for final diagnosis and treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Yes but may not b: Yes muscle involvement can be involved, but also the facet joints can also cause radiating down the leg. As part of your evaluation the other thing to consider is if the nerve is being irritated outside the spine such as by the piriformis muscle . These are things your physician will need to try to evaluate and help you ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
