    Rotator cuff exercises before every session. They help quite a bit.

    Save the straight arm push downs for a finisher. Bb rows with a normal and reverse grip as well to hit the lower lats. Db rows. Pull ups. Yates rows. All good stuff.

    My workout normally looks something like

    Pullups 4 sets to warm up the back
    Barbell Rows or t bar rows
    Db or hammer strength rows
    Weighted Pulldowns
    Straight arm push downs to finish

    I do rack pulls at the end of my sessions sometimes but I hardly ever do deads and if I did do deads I would save them for the end before the push downs. Reason being they sap so much energy that can be utilized for the rest of the session and you don't HAVE to put our max effort on Deadlift to reap the benefits.

    I'll probably get stones thrown at me but I would use deads on leg day and rack pulls on back day of you want to do those lifts. Deads use so much leg strength it only makes sense imo.

    Take upright rows out if you are experiencing shoulder issues. What you can expect to gain from that exercise is not worth the damage it can do (impingement) if not performed correctly.

    should i switch back to 1-handed upright row or drop it all together and substitute with something else?

    Drop it allllllll together. If you don't get enough shoulder work from presses then dumbell front raises with a hammer grip are pretty easy on the joints.

    will do. gotta re-edit my push day

    bench
    db press of sorts
    db shoulder press (going to avoid overhead presses for now to not agitate the shoulder)
    db front raises
    lu raises
    & whatever tricep work

    looks good?

    Looks good to me. If the db raises bother you try them with that hammer grip. Its the only way I do them now.

    One more thing you can try to relieve some shoulder pressure is to not use barbell for presses. Replace it with DB and see what kind of effect that has on your shoulder.

    I have a touch of shoulder bursitis and found that iForce Nutrition's Joint Help really helps reduce inflammation and pain. Definitely drop the upright rows. Search the forum and you will find a lot of posts about how damaging these can be if you have shoulder issues.

    Cameras are quite inexpensive now, you can get a sony for about 100 bucks now. There are much better camera's out there but they are ok digitals and idiot proof. I am a camera idiot so that is great for me.

    is not the $ issue (altho this freakin national show is gonna kill me with expense lol)..I just simply refuse to replace something that works fine, for all intents and purposes, am old-fashioned that way, and why I still drive a 15yr old BMW
    not trying to be a pro photographer here, just would be nice in some instances (recent update pics for example) to be able to show everything correctly

    indeed on the beamer, had this 740iL for yrs, 200k miles on it, looks great, runs great has been low-maintenance (relatively speaking)..altho they hold their value well, dealer would give me nowhere close to what it is really worth (and more importantly, for what it's worth to me, I cannot replace it comparatively in that price range, nowhere close)
    lol on your government..everybody has issues these days..gas pretty salty over there tho isn't it?

    Im in here! Logs looking good thus far and i completely agree with the upright rows, throw em in the trash! I absolutely hate that exercise, never feels right for me and provides me no benefit.
