I have a shoulder condition that start to become a problem when I was boxing alot, it is when the shoulder is able to slip out of the socket very easily because of malformed stuff in the shoulder (thats what the doctor told me.. not exactly good with that kinda stuff) I do not box anymore due to my gym closing, and I still want to stay in shape.
The only problem is that benching really just isn't safe for me, and is not recommended by my doctor (its in both shoulders :/), and with squatting the way you reach back to grab the bars doesn't work because I get the feeling that my shoulders are going to dislocate.
Now there is a surgery for this, but my parents will not go for it, because it is not affecting my life in any other way other than causing problems when trying to do certain exercises.
Now from a general strength and fitness stand point would dead lifting be enough to maintain some kind of strength? I also will be running alot now, and I mountain bike as well.
Is there anything I can do to build up my upper body somewhat? Or will my legs be trunks and my upper body not be developed at all? Am I screwed? ><
If it matters, I'm 16 5'10 185 lbs
