Thanks for the help everybody. I will do as ryno, Nate and Chad suggested and do the decline presses.
Thanks for the warning ZEB.
Nate, not to worry, deads are already on the menu. They’re actually my favorite lift.
ryno, I will educate myself concerning box squats. The only thing I know about them is they’re good for learning proper squatting technique.
P-DOG, I’m not actually too concerned with the fact there is no direct delt work in the program. I already have a nice set of delts going on so they’re the least of my concerns.
Thanks for the link davo2. I will check it out.
I guess I’ll experiment with quad exercises to see which movement hurts my knee the least.
Patricia, prior to last week I didn’t lift for a month. Gasp I’ve been doing cardio Ick! Ptooey! and concentrating on my rehab. I gave myself a break-in week last week before I start ABBH tomorrow. It felt good to deadlift again even though I had to go light.
Geez, Chad, it looks as if we don’t need you around here.
Thanks for the offer, but I’m already getting a lot of help from Mike Robertson. He designed a posture rehab program for me. My less than perfect posture is the cause of the recurring tendonitis in my shoulders. I’m also doing regular rotator cuff work.
Next week, I’ll be starting ART. We’re going to start by working on my posture and then see if we can do something for my knee after that.
I underwent intensive physio prior to the holidays and that did help my knee a lot. When I started physio I was at the point my knee hurt so much I could barely do any leg movements at all.
If you have any more suggestions I’m all ears.
