I've done a lot of odd object stuff, made my own timber trap bar, trained grip strength and competed in grip events. All this has left me with two blown shoulders with 5 cortisone injections in one and 2 in the other, bad tendonitis in both elbows (had surgery on one).
last year I bought a set of Bodylastics and this year I've finally started training with them "seriously". I've sort of morphed my exercises to mimic the old chest expanders and even bought one of those twist springs rated at 60Kg which is a good worker of arms and shoulders at the end of a band workout and I'm looking to get the 80Kg one next.
I'm considering buying an old bullworker to train the Archers Pull, but for now I have to rest a while as my enthusiasm for working my back, especially from seated rows with the bands anchored to the newel post at the bottom of the stairs (!) has over trained my left rear delt so I'm doing some gentle rotator cuff work for a week or so and then I'm back into it.
The exercises that appeal to me are front chest pull, shoulder press, the archers pull, back pull as shown in the procable course, and th front pull down. I have to work within the limited flexibility off my shoulders and these seem to fit the bill so far.
What I am wide open to is suggestions on stes, load and frequency of training so if anyone can offer some suggestions that would be great.
Many thanks, Lol
