It was a long road but worth it. My advise go slowley with your recovery and do lots of very light work.
Hope to see you at some future masters meets
What a cutie!!!

I remember it well, talking with you and your wife in the hotel lobby. Next years National Masters is in Savannah.
Looks like it took you about seven an a half months until you were able to do both lifts fairly well. You are right about pain being the enemy. It is a long road back depending on the extent of the surgical procedure. I went for the 11th PT session today. The last will be next week as I have been spreading them out due to the expense and I can do most every exercise at home. Doing the rotator cuff strength building exercises is not the problem. Working on getting the full range of motion is. So, I am making haste - slowly.
When I'm done with this, my goal is to be able to do a one arm pushup again.
See you next time and good luck with your training.
If I was doing any better, I would be twins!!!
