So I have a shoulder problem that my doctor has been unable to diagnose via X-ray. I went through 6 weeks of physical therapy and the problem did not resolve. My next step is an MRI (ugh) and possible surgery. The problem with my shoulder is that I cannot really do horizontal push-ups, pull-ups of any kind, or bench presses. I can do vertical (e.g. stand against a wall) push-ups. I have moved to resistance bands with a much lower level of discomfort. Any thoughts on routines that can help me get back to shape? My upper body is not as strong as it was.
