    One side doing military presses, then two weeks later the other one doing decline dumbbell presses. The decline one my whole muscle just went limp and it fell on my chest... pretty sad display but no one saw.

    Physio is next week, and until then what now?

    Lol- sorry to hear that. I'm glad you're alright! Please only lift weights that you can control and don't push yourself to such extremes!!! (especially without a spotter)

    Oh and legs suck. icon_razz.gif I have to work on mine on friday....

    Rehab it and avoid doing exercises where the rotator is at a negative decline. I have two shot shoulders from baseball but doctors won't operate because I am too young, so I rehabbed both. Upper-body is doable but spend some time first rehabbing the surrounding muscles.

    It was hard at first, but I finally I got one. Then the other. And then it was just a mess.

    Like Pinny said.

    Once you're better, I'd recommend finding some exercises for your rotator cuffs. (Remember, very light weights.)

    Also, I find that NeoCell's collagen supplement has helped my rotator cuffs immensely. I damaged mine a few years ago, somehow. (I woke up one morning with pains in both shoulders and couldn't lift the blanket off of me!)

    Mind you, I'm no physician. So, do what you feel is best, I guess.

    shoulder injuries SUCK! its one of those spots that is tied into so many different exercises and body parts.

    I have a chiropractor friend who usually helps me out. He doesn't fix the problem but through therapy he usually gets me up and going in a few weeks!

    Reminds me of a friend of mine who went skiing and on the first day she fell and dilocated her shoulder.

    2 days later she got sick of doing nothing so decided to ski the baby slopes one handed (shes a very experienced skier so was no problem to her, or would have been if she didnt dilocate her other shoulder trying to get her jacket on over her sling (old injury)

    Sad but funny!

    Mate I know the feeling, I've done something similar to myself on both shoulders, thankfully all over it now but back then it was a bitch.

    As lost said, lots of legs, however, you might have to end up using just machines since you probably can't carry weight in your hands, plus lots of lunges hahaha

    depending on how your shoulder is, core work too, at least things like crunches and the like and if you have someone who works with you, you might be able to use a plate on your chest, but again, depends on the shoulders.

    While you might not normally feel anything in the shoulders when doing crunches with an injury you will they will become fatigued much faster from being held in position.

    WIth the plate again depending on your shoulders you can cross your arms over it and hold on and that might work but it depends on the type of plate metal ones are much more slippery where else the rubber coated will at least provide more grip to your shirt and hold it more in position.

    some different things you might like to try for legs.

    Take a weight belt with you with some chain wrapped around it place it back to front hook up the chain to a cable machine and get funky with it, lunges attached to the cable machine are kinda fun, place the cable pully low and it provides some great resistance.

    same thing but with side lunges, again, different but great.

    Doing lunges on a bosu, good for developing stability especially in the ankles.

    You wont be able to do squats with a bar but try doing them attached to the cable machine, it;ll feel really different but give a good workout.

    Those sorts of things, My trainer was awesome when it came to working out with a busted shoulder he had the same problem as me a few times so he was just fab!!!

    I hurt my shoulder rock climbing back in 2007. Spent 6 months in Physio. You know what I did? I ran. I discovered I enjoyed running, and as I slowly fixed up my shoulder, I incorporated shoulder exercises to help strengthen the muscles that my shoulder lacked. Then I started on the rowing machines! WOW What a workout.

    I lost a lot of muscle mass, but in the end, I grew my muscle shoulders to an impressive size and I lost a few inches around the waist. Now I can say that this has helped how much I can bench icon_biggrin.gif And I'm bigger than ever now!

    a really good idea is to visit either a physiotherapist or chiropractor that does Active Release Technique! it is one of the most effective, and fastest muscular rehabilitative therapies. I'm a chiropractor and I use this technique in my practice for sports related injuries and it works very well, i also know of other chiros and physios that use it and have had great success! good luck bud! if you wanna find a practitioner in your area that does this technique, you can go to the official website, there you will find a section entitled " providers in your area" which is a data base of chiros and physios that do the technique in your area!

    www.activerelease.com

    good luck bud! may you have a speedy recovery icon_smile.gif
