Methods to strengthen your shoulders and joints

I'm getting back into paintball and was wondering if anyone out there had some pointers on how to strengthen your shoulders and shoulder joint/socket. I've had my right shoulder operated on undergoing to Latarjet procedure and just started now having issues with my left shoulder. My right shoulder is solid but I'm trying to avoid having the left one operated on. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I would suggest using light to moderate resistant bands and using those to do a variety of shoulder strengthening exercises. Safer then using weights and easier on the joints in terms of your injury. I would also find a couple of shoulder flexibility exercises to make it less prone to getting hurt again.

Nonsense

Farmers walks, shrugs, deadlifts, weighted push/pull ups, rear flies, presses

But yeah generally strengthening the upper back is a very good idea when it comes to shoulder health.

Do you have mobility to lift your arms over your head without shoulder pain? If so, I'd recommend good old military presses. Start off with just the bar (or even a broomstick) to get your form down.
