Default Anybody ever dropped all other pressing except for Turkish Get Ups to help shoulders?

I've read claims here and there that people have helped their shoulders with TGU. Has anybody ever taken out all other pressing and just done TGU? If so, what were the results?

I didn't take out all other pressing, but I drastically reduced it and did a bunch of TGUs for a time.

It was good for me as my shoulders are a bit tricky. One's been scoped (right side) and the other now gives me issues going overhead. Bench is cool though.

But to your question, my shoulders felt much better doing a fair amount of moderate weight TGU's. It worked so well that I stopped doing this.

May work if there's certain types of shoulder issues. May not work if there's others. Basically, depends on what the problem is

i guess i just want an exercise i can use for strength or conditioning that has a larger serratus element and a decreased upper trap and pec element. i was thinking of just coming up to the halfway point (around the to the side plank portion). am i in the right mind frame, or is this not what the exercise is activating?
