    It's pretty amazing how many seemingly unrelated movements impact the shoulder girdle. I had to 'listen' very carefully to my body following my pec repair. Great work!

    Yeah, I even have to be careful brushing my teeth because I feel it in my shoulder. Also can't walk more than a mile without my shoulder starting to hurt.

    I appreciate the encouragement, I know my workouts are not much but I figure it's better than just sitting in the recliner watching TV.

    I know that encouragement helps light the way. I had a bunch of told-you-so's and guys that wanted to see me deteriorate to the status quo dad bod....and some days I wanted to.

    Yeah, I keep having people (family, friends, and complete strangers) tell me that I need to give up the weights and stop torturing myself in the gym.

    Tuesdays Rehab

    Started with pendulum circle swings to warm and loosen up my shoulder, then laid down and was passively stretched by the therapist. He told me that I'm way ahead of schedule and that at a little over 3 weeks out of surgery my shoulder's flexibility is where he expected it to be at 6 weeks out. He said that since I'm doing so well there isn't any reason to push the therapy at this stage, so he cut my therapy visits back to one a week for the next two weeks.

    No Friday workout, felt like I might be coming down with something and with the flu going around thought it best to rest and take it easy. I'm feeling better today so hopefully I'll get over this fast.

    LMAO, at least I'm not complaining about my shoulder hurting. It hurts by the way, and I'm ready to take this damn immobilizer off and burn it.
