I do neck presses twice a week and have no pain. How do you explain that if neck presses definitely cause rotator cuff issues?



One more time, I said the opposite of that, it doesn't always cause issues; it's still a high risk exercise due to the way the shoulder is made.

There are four muslces in the rotator cuff. They can be injured in a number of ways. The issues you have may not be the same one the neck press irritates in some / most people.

A very few people are not built to squat and it is pretty easy to identify most of them. It is usually due to a correctable problem, like tight hamstrings.

Many or most shoulders are made so they can't neck press without impingement. Sometimes you can tell immediately, but sometimes you can't. It is a correctable problem too, the fix is to lower the bar to a different spot
The most important test a lifter has to pass
is the test of time.
