Thanks for the welcome all. I do have a problem I could use some advice on. Bench Press. I just cannot seem to do it without killing my shoulders, regardless of the weight amount. Tried every grip from wide to narrow elbows out elbows in. I just saw a video of a reverse grip was thinking about trying that this week. But in the mean time I only use dumbbells for chest, as the pain it causes my shoulders is way way less.
From one long time rehaber to another, welcome.
I totally had my left shoulder reconstructed years ago. Rehab was a bitch as I started out with mobility/range of motion excersises and progressed up to pressing a freakin broom handle in as little as two months. Took another month to get a bar up and down for reps. You get the idea, slow and painful. Like you, I had trouble with pressing a bar so I switched to DB’s and using Hammer Strength machines. No pain, no pain. Hope this helps. Good luck!
