  3. Thank you for everyone thats joined in so far...I really appreciate you all. @LeanEngineer great to
    See you, @Studhorse..you ARE the dream ! Today was a good start but the shoulder is still plaguing me.

    So the diet is pretty slim pickings here, so Ill be sticking with the basics. Eggs, oats, chicken, beef, fish and lamb. Oh...and of course peanut butter.Nothing fried, and less than 100 carbs a day. Basically 2 pieces of wheat bread a day. 3 gallons of water a day as well.
    Did my morning cardio of 2 miles, the knees are handling it a little better since the humidity is virtually nonexistent here. Went to the gym this evening and busted out some chest...this is how
    It went down

    FLAT BENCH
    135x20
    225x10
    225x8
    315x5(been doing 10 but the shoulder is KILLING ME)
    135x20

    3 SETS EACH ON HAMMER STRENGTH MACHINE
    Incline and decline

    3 Sets each of high, low and middle cable flies.

    15 minutes of abs. Supper was a stuffed pepper and 2 lamb chops.

    Ill rock out some more
    Cardio in the morning. Hope you guys have a great night, Im off to
    Bed!

    Nice start! what kind of equipment you have access to? worried about that shoulder. Bench will only make it worse brother. Trust me.
    How does the shoulder feel on the Hammer Incline? The Hammer decline will not bother your shoulder.
    You got dumbbells?

  6. Great work @FireTitan sure hope you get that shoulder issue worked out! @RegisterJr might have some good mobility work to share with you.
    The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Isaiah 40:28b-29

    Depends on what it is. If the supraspinatus tendon this is what helped me: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list...4tIwOFP43jg7W0

    Being that you’re in a new gym maybe the bench height or bench rack position is causing you to place your shoulders in a ROM you aren’t used to.

  8. Still waiting on some @FireTitan noodz, I mean it's gotta be pretty damn hot there... expecting some sweaty gym pics!

  9. I just use a band to warm up my shoulders. This has helped more than anything else. @TheSolution turned me onto it.
    I do 20reps before I start my Chest of shoulder work and do 10 in between sets. After a 3 or 4 I'm ready to go. Doesn't take much time and it does wonders.

    Like the second movement he does in this video. about the 1:38 mark.

    Thank you @love2liftkat! @RegisterJr, Im not sure what it is or
    How I did it. It almost feels like its at very tip of the collarbone, where it meets the shoulder. Constant dull pain, and turns into a harsh sharp pain when doing some movements. I can actually take the finger on my right hand and push the exact spot where it Seems to be coming from. Not at all like the rotator cuff tear
    On the other shoulder.

  17. Oh..and @RegisterJr my grip is much closer than it used to be due
    To the small RC tear in the other shoulder. @Studhorse the gym is amazing here on base and the station has a great setup in the truck bay. And I tried dumbbells yesterday, but after 1 set the shoulder was too sore, maybe from the previous bench press. Ill stick with just the DBs next chest day.

    Not a horrible setup. I have seen worse

  20. That’s a pretty nice gym anyway.

    I’d say it is the supraspinatus tendon. Breaking that tissue up with your hand as much as possible, some icing a couple times a day, and stretching that tendon as much as possible should help (over time).

    Set up has plenty! looks pretty good to me. No Excuses!

    Try the @hairygrandpa Hew Press. These have really helped me hit my check and doesn't bother my torn labrum much.

    Might research these. I'm not a Dr. But I did stay in a holiday Inn express last week.

    Bursitis
    Bursae are small, fluid-filled sacs that are located in joints throughout the body, including the shoulder. They act as cushions between bones and the overlying soft tissues, and help reduce friction between the gliding muscles and the bone.

    Sometimes, excessive use of the shoulder leads to inflammation and swelling of the bursa between the rotator cuff and part of the shoulder blade known as the acromion. The result is a condition known as subacromial bursitis. Bursitis often occurs in association with rotator cuff tendinitis. The many tissues in the shoulder can become inflamed and painful. Many daily activities, such as combing your hair or getting dressed, may become difficult.

    Impingement
    Shoulder impingement occurs when the top of the shoulder blade (acromion) puts pressure on the underlying soft tissues when the arm is lifted away from the body. As the arm is lifted, the acromion rubs, or "impinges" on, the rotator cuff tendons and bursa. This can lead to bursitis and tendinitis, causing pain and limiting movement. Over time, severe impingement can even lead to a rotator cuff tear.
