5 lb lightweight shoulder exercises

Over the years, the main reason given for keeping shoulder exercises such as those found in Throwers 10 or Jobes at roughly 3 to 5 lbs is because anything higher in weight changes to focus of the exercise from the smaller rotator cuff muscles to the larger shoulder muscles.

But 5 lbs really seems light - especially for well-trained college and pro pitchers.

At what weight do you think is the max? Can/should you go higher than 5 lbs and still get the benefit?

I’d say 5lb, after doing each Jobe Exercise for 3 sets of 15 my shoulders feel pretty sore and tired

If you want u could do 8lbs for the first set and for the next 3 drop it down to 5. But 5 is probably best
