Is it possible to lift with shoulder replaced?
Recently I had a glenoid injury after a BMX crash, got a labrum repair but the shoulder is starting to develop arthritis. So I’ll need a shoulder replacement in the future.
I used to compete in Men’s Physique, after this injury I lost 44lbs, got into severe depression but reading and listening to Alan Watts gave me another perspective of life so the depression is going away.
Almost 1 year post op now and the only chest exercises I can do without pain is dips and neutral grip push ups. No shoulder exercises at all with more than 5lbs.
I know that the arthritis will make it worst at some point, but I’m not certain that a replaced ball and socket will tolerate much.
Anyone here had this kind of surgery? what exercises with how much weight you can do it without pain?
