Lot of nothing

More grind; another 2 hour workout where most of the time was spent on physical therapy with a lot of shoulder squeezes.

Note: the shoulder feels…pretty darned good. And..I did NOT do the crawl yesterday. I am sensing a pattern…I need to wait for the shoulder PT to kick in, and then introduce crawl back oh-so-slowly, and stick with fins, side, back and breast ..for a very long time.

Getting older sucks. My issue here: OS acromiale. In my case, the bones in the top of my shoulder never fused together properly and there is a tendency for the acromiale to tilt forward and impinge my rotator cuff.

Yes, there was a lot of back PT too; most of it was that. Root nerve impingement (L5-S1); mostly it affects walking.

The actual exercises: 40 singles pull up, 10 singles chin ups, 2 sets of 5 wide.

Push ups: this time, 5 sets of 20 working on keeping the elbows further in. 1 incline, 1 decline, 1 deficit, 2 regular.

Bench presses (Swiss bar) 3 sets of 10 x 135 (focus on squeezing the shoulder blades and not hunching my shoulders)

One armed rows: 3 sets of 10 slow..
Curls: 3 sets of 10

deadlifts: 10 x 134 low, 10 x 184 low, 10 x 235 4 inch..all felt GREAT.
