due to some shoulder surgery on both shoulders ( rotator cuff ) I have not got back to the poundage I'd like to. I currently shoot a Bowtech Tomkat set at 45# and would like some input on how to strenghten my shoulders up. Thanks all

Serious Physical Therapy with that goal in mind.

I dislocated both shoulders in 2003. It took a combination of first using just therabands and finally switching to just drawing and letting down a light recurve on a daily basis. Talk to a physical therapist before attempting this. Overdoing it on healing shoulders can be a disaster.

Your shoulders need to be well healed before attempting to roll over cams on a compound. It personally took me nine months to get there.

Don't Overdue It!

Those buggers have a tendency to go bad again and require more surgeries. Take your time with PT and ask them a lot of questions. Keeping your shoulders limber and not loosing your range of motion is as important as strength training. Good Luck.
