The other Snake
- Aug 19, 2016
I pushed my flat and decline work almost up to failure last night. My shoulder is now grumpy with me.
I'm now 8 months out post op. Shoulder feels pretty good during my normal day and a little stiff the day after the gym if the workout involves the shoulder. Progress has been way slower then expected but it is progressing. I feel at the 12 month mark, this will be nothing but a bad memory.
6 months ago I had lost almost 1 1/2" off that arm. I have now gained 1" of that back so I fell much better. The new shoulder work I put in has developed my traps beyond where they ever have been so there's something good that has come of this.
Thanks for checking in!

T. o. Snake ... before the injury you'd been training for a long time and presumably done a lot of different things in training.
So what was this "new shoulder work?"
Something like that but being wide, it is all the way up. The shoulder girdle can not move any further so the ROM looks short but is completeWhat you describe sounds like a wide grip upright row, done only half-way up.
What about your grip; was that lat bar a straight one, or one of those with circles at the ends so that your hands face each other?
And how about the angle ... did you stand close to the low pulley so your pull was close to vertical, or did you step back a little so there was a rearward component to your upward pull?
Nope, but good thought process on your part. I always did 15-20 for trap work so that's out of the equation.Wondering too if the biggest benefit for you was the new movement or the change from lower, heavier reps to lighter 20 rep sets. "Wondering," not arguing.
