Great exercise to try-The X Pulldown
Do regular pulldowns like seen above on fixed bars or handles give you shoulder issues? If so then the X Pulldown is for you. The X pulldown is the ultimate shoulder friendly exercise and is just a great exercise in general. You need some sort of functional trainer machine that has two separate handles like you see in the video. Grab the handles with your palms down and arms crossed. As you pull the the handles down your palms should finish facing each other. By finishing with both palms facing each other you are now in external rotation and thus making it better on the cuff. Make sure to push your chest towards the machine it will help you retract your scapulae. Each set alternate which hand is crossed on top.
