Brings me to 24,000 total overall since the March 1st. And now I think I might take a few days off and see if I can get this shoulder figured out.

All the best getting that shoulder sorted buddy. Still in awe of the big numbers you've been doing with a bung shoulder and all

Thanks, man. It's been really difficult. Some days the thing just screams at me and I have to grit my teeth and just get through it. But it's just too much now. And there's no real point. If resting for a bit doesn't improve it, I'll go to a doctor.

Try Small reps. See if that doesn't aggrivate the shoulder

Might want to try having your shoulders slightly out in front of your wrists. You can do a lot more with your shoulders slightly behind your wrists but it puts strain on your shoulders.

Interesting. Good tip. I'll give that a try, too. Thanks!

Give it a rest. Rangi guy is laid up with surgery from beating his body up, dont listen to him ;)

If you are gritting your teeth trying to get through these...that is your body telling you to back off. Pushups will be there when you are healthy.

So, what do you guys think about me doing bicep curls instead of push-ups while my shoulder rests? Is that a bad idea? I feel like it would be working different muscles and not aggravating my shoulder issue. I'm thinking of doing 100 curls a day to start, maybe with 25 pounds? Just to get started. Than I can up it as I go.

Basically, do the push-up 30 challenge but with curls instead. Thoughts? Good idea/bad idea?

Depends on where exactly your shoulder is injured. You could still activate some muscles in your shoulders. If you can do curls while being sure to only be targeting the bicep flexors so as to not aggravate the shoulder then perhaps...But the bicep tendons do attach to your shoulder.

Image

i recently had wrist problems that precluded me from doing any sort of pushup. Yoga was a bitch and i had to do everything on my forearms. I saw my PT buddy and she pointed out that the tendons were actually falling away from the bone where they attach at the elbow. She did some work to activate that area and push the tendons back towards where they belong. Taped me up. Ive already seen massive improvement but it will require some more rest and some strengthening exercises for it to fully heal.

Point is, the body is complex and moving away from pushups to something like 100 curls a day..may not be the answer for healing, if that is your ultimate goal. Create sustainability so you can continue exercising for the long haul.

this sounds like a very bad idea

a big cause for injuries - particularly as we age - is insufficient recovery. you don't actually build muscle while working out; it's only when you're not working out that the body's physiological processes rebuild the muscles that are activated and damaged during exercise. if you don't allow enough time for that process to occur, you are doing far more bad to your body than good.

good rule of thumb is to not exercise the same muscle within a 48-hour window (though 72 is preferable).

I'm probably the worst person to offer advice as I'm a 'work through the pain' person even when i know it's the wrong thing, but I'd suggest doing some light rotator cuff exercises for a while and see if that helps the shoulder pain

We could maybe go for a 100 v-up challenge. Would keep the strain off your shoulders...?

Resistance bands are fantastic for this sort of thing.
