Mild and regular activity is good for both, but be aware of the movements you should avoid, like flies and pulldowns among others. Good luck with it!

I would first ask a question. Have you been diagnosed with Arthritis or are you just assuming? Rotator cuff problems can be another source of pain. Tailor the exercise to the problem. I agree with light weights and resistance bands. Although I do have osteoarthritis, I used a book called "The Seven-Minute Rotator Cuff Solution" to go from about 40% range of movement to very near 100% with almost no pain. Avoid heavy weights and bands because that can cause more problems than it would help. There are also many exercises to be avoided or modified. Best wishes for success with it!

Hi! emoticon

I have rheumatoid arthritis.

I think it's important to warm up before doing any weight lifting and do a little stretching after.

Stretch cords is another way you can loosen up your shoulders while strengthening them. If you like that idea, start out with a cord that easy, every 4 days up it to the next level. You might find it easier on your shoulder than weights. I bought my stretch cords on Amazon for approximately $25. They have the attachments for the door and also feet. Believe it or not, they are excellent for building strength and flexibility. I use both the hand weights and the stretch cords.

Hope I helped a little
