    Jeff,

    I think you should give Indian clubs a try. I hurt my left shoulder last August trying to roof my heavy bag with a liver punch. For months it hurt just to put my jacket on. Healing was taking forever. I got into Indian clubs a couple of months ago, and after my first session my shoulders felt noticeably better. I am now able to press again, although I dropped down 2 kettlbell sizes, but the strength is coming back. I can do a getup with the 53lb'er no problem and tried a getup with the 62lb'er last week, and had no trouble getting past seated with the hips off the floor.

    I now have full range of motion and my strength is returning. I suggest you give them a shot. They absolutely helped me.

    Done correctly and at not high a volume and without pain they can be therapeutic. But listen to Brett about "Mobility first..." CC wall push ups, and horizonatal pulls. Arm-bars and TGUs. Scapular wall slides. No OH presses for now if you have impingement. You mentioned TRX in your PT sesions - if they worked then why not now? Your surgery was about a year ago. Have you been doing bad things to your shoulder that is aggravating the injury? THE VERY BEST THING YOU CAN DO FOR AN INJURED SHOULDER IS NOT TO RE-INJURE IT - P E R I O D... do any or all drills that look promising. Use and discard those drills as you see fit. Time is your best medicine. There is no miracle pill that will fix it in 2 weeks...Dennis

    Len,

    Is this book something that you have used for yourself or a friend? I wonder what is in it that I haven't already seen from the PT's that I have seen in the past.

    Hi. I own this book and have been doing the rehab prescribed therein since around the turn of the new year.

    The book prescribes three "routines", beginner, medium and advanced, depending on the injury progress. A selection of about 4 stretches are performed 5 days a week, and there are 3 or 4 strength exercises that are done 2 or 3 times a week.

    I am finding the prescribed stretches in particular to be beneficial to my shoulder injury. However, I am guessing the stretches and exercise would be very typical of that prescribed by any PT?
