In fact, my wounded shoulder feels better each week and I'm doing an entire shoulders only workout in addition to a dedicated arms day!

That's not normal, but it's great!
My shoulders have always disliked isolations. They took quite a beating in my teens from pitching about a thousand innings a year...we had a playground across from my house. Whenever I do too maybe laterals or flyes, I start to feel a bit rough.

And I'm not sure what my issue is with curls, but too many sets and my tendinitis flares up quickly.

I am mentally like Mulder...I want to believe in isolations...but physically I am Scully...I've never really used them, and have a hard time seeing the value.

I hope no one reading this equates my sentiments as meaning "they have no value". I just - personally - see no value in them.

But if they helped my joints, I'm sure I would use them for pre-hab.
