I continually find overhead strength, mobility, and stability to be a challenge following my failed shoulder surgery, so take my advice with a grain of salt, as my problems are my own. Still, for all the fancy rehab/prehab stuff that I've done over the years and some of it to good effect, the thing that helped most with weathering the abuse of overhead work is simply doing handstands and hand walking a couple-few times a week. It's an easy thing to fit in outside the context of the gym, so it's convenient, but mostly, I think the practice of frequently managing perturbations in the overhead position with a natural way to bail is the biggest reason it is so helpful.
