Permanent Bad Shoulders


#1

What are some chest and back exercises that don't involved shoulders so much?
Doc said if I continued to do shoulders i would have to get shoulder replacement in near future


#2

is the sensible thing to do not to diagnose what is wrong with your shoulders and correct it?


#3

I would if I could but was told that by Dr Bowen (Chicago Bears Doctor)
So if I continued working shoulders then i will probably be in constant pain for the rest of my life with artificial shoulders


#4

The chest and back muscles basically move the arms through the shoulder joint. Can they not take load via any plane?


#5

Doc said Ok to do pullback exercises but go very light on push exercises
No workouts with arms above shoulders
