I only looked briefly, curious to know if this is something your health insurance will cover or if it's all out of pocket?

Not sure yet but it sounds like it could be out of pocket. He said the first session is on the house and I can make up my mind after that.

Nautilus Press
70x20 90x10 95x10

Leg Raises
20, 15, 15

I don’t know. It’s exercise but it’s hardly weight lifting. But I had very little discomfort and that’s a good sign. Just going to keep plugging away light and slow.

Extremely careful and very light back, biceps and forearms. Slow, extra controlled reps with little to no rest between sets.

Nautilus Pull downs
100x20 115x20 140x10

Nautilus Row
85x20 115x15 130x12

Dumbbell Rows
35x15 35x12

Biceps

Low Pulley Cable/Cuff Single Arm Curls
40x15 40x13 30x15

I’m not sure if this is going to work. I’m not using any weight and I can already feel irritation in both my left shoulder and my left wrist. Any form of resistance training may be gone forever for me. I’ll take it day by day for awhile and see what happens, but it looks like another cycle of doctor appointments is in my future.


Specifically what part of that caused you discomfort Al? You may have to shy away from back day but I know we can work on biceps. Hang in there man.

Honest to God Mike it doesn't really seem to matter "what" I am doing or how little weight I am using I still have what I would call discomfort in the wrist (lots of popping and clicking) and hints of irritation in the left shoulder. Sitting here just now I pulled my hand back to check the wrist and it snapped so I held it up to my ear and rotated it to listen to the grinding. After that I raised my left elbow like a chicken wing and felt pain in my shoulder at about 45 degrees from my side. Neither injury is soft tissue, I can tell it's in the bones. It's pretty obvious from my log that I'm really taking it easy here. I'm not whining or feeling sorry for myself but I must say the future does not look very good. I've backed WAY down in the last 6 months and taken every form of supplement you can imagine that "might" help. Sure I could quit doing back but even doing biceps with light weight and the cuffs still effects the bum shoulder. Bottom line is I have a couple of problems that ain't going away.

Raise the intensity a tad from round 1 coming out of my time off. Still started every exercise light with high reps to pre-exhaust and to make sure everything was warmed up real good. Kept rest to a minimum and the workout short and sweet (less than 40 minutes). Felt good while training, a bit nauseous after my post workout concoction but did feel a sharp pain in my left knee after trying to stand up after an hour of chilling on the couch. That’s just part of getting old! LOL
