Notes - Totally dog shit session.  I know why too.  Up too late last night and had a couple of dranks.  Not overly concerned.


  1. First off, thanks for a great blog. I am quite impressed with both your knowledge and your willingness to help others, even when we ask questions that must seem to you to have obvious answers.

    I recently separated my shoulder for the second time, so I am going to try your method of alternating close grip and incline presses. Do you also use a close grip on the incline press?

    Also, are there any exercises in particular that have helped you with your shoulder beyond the traditional rotator cuff exercises?


  2. Sorry to hear about your shoulder. I've lived with it for over 15 years so you can continue to progress and train hard with it however.

    On the incline I can actually incline with a much wider grip with no problems. What you will need to do is play with different grips for both to find what feels best for your shoulder. Be mindful of other things starting to ache if you get extreme one way or the other.
