As a young man in Cub Scouts/Boy Scouts I had issues because I same a couple miles a day in various lakes and river's where ever I lived and during the Summer public pools. This was one of the things that got me into weight lifting. Mom takes me to see the Army Doctor Pediatrics. I guess my shoulder where too flexible from all the swimming with out enough strength to protect the joints. Doctor told me to start lifting weights and he was sure my problems would go away and to cut back my swimming volume until pain went away.My one shoulder clicks when doing circles. It has been dislocated a number of times thanks to a H.S. career in Wrestling! LOL
Fast-forward to the ripe age of 43 and this is what I have learned. Stretching!!! Isometrics!!! Rotatory Cuff with some form of dynamic resistance band, weights, partner assisted manuals etc...I do not do pull downs behind the neck or military press behind neck! Never go for a stretch on bench, dips or push-up's and front squats are much easier on the shoulders than back squats!
I am a fan of mobility exercises but to be honest shoulders is one of the few area's where I have never gotten any results from mobility exercises.
First sign of shoulder pain I stop doing any exercise that aggravates it and I do isometric shoulder press on door frame any time I walk through a door for a week or two and the pain goes away and stays away for years! In H.S. my best bench in competition was 475 and at that same time I was repping out with 245lbs. shoulder presses lifting off from squat stands.
I think too many repetitions with too much stretch at the bottom is a real killer of shoulder's. I blame bodybuilding magazines for a lot of that.
A few months ago someone posted on another site the value of door-frame shoulder presses for durations of 20 to 30 seconds. I had been experiencing pain in my left shoulder at the time, the result of a pushup injury years ago, and was having difficulty doing overhead presses with any substantial weight.
So, I did the door-frame presses as described, and the initial efforts produced an ache and fatigue that I dreaded with each session. I did the isometrics six times a day, and in a few days all initial discomfort was gone. Three weeks later I went back to the dumbbell presses, and in the first workout was pressing my normal poundages, pain free...

I was enjoy using it, but have stopped now. My brother has stopped using his for the same reasons.
