I have arrived at 36 years old and am seeing some NASTY issues in asymmetrical muscle groups, lowered lifting performance and nagging pains etc. I'm desperate for some help and/or analysis to help me prioritize what should be my main training/developement/stretching 'toolbox'. I have taken several photo's to hopefully provide something that might appear to be really obvious to those here at T-Nation.
Any input, suggestions and/or help would be hugely appreciated. I can only include one photo so it's of me relaxed from the front. Back shots I have show what seems to be a shorter lower trap on my left side which is also the raised shoulder in this front shot.
I have really been working the back in terms of rows, prone 45 degree 'Y's', rotator work and more posterior delt work. I don't have a 'shoulder' day and have elminated vertical pressing, BB benching and a lot of pec work in favor of trying to correct whatever is going on.
I do some Incline DB chest work mainly to maintain what I have and then stretch the crap out of it. I have most discomfort (formerly pain but now somewhat reduced) in my left shoulder when overhead pressing, heavier chest work and shoulder abduction, predominantly DB lateral raises.
Thanks to anyone with feedback and/or help!
