    Good to see you back at it Pete. I've had some shoulder pain the last few days. I used some lite band work to try and loosen it up. Sounded like a bowl of rice crispies. I did press today and so far it OK. I have used the shoulder rehab method that Cheesepuff linked.It sure helped me.

    Cheespuff, thank you for the link

    Also, thanks for your kind words. I don't believe I should be impressing anyone. I find the fight to stay where I am a challenge. Although I think it was Brooklyn Jerry said the important thing is to show up. I find my work schedule and my Afib make it difficult to find time to regularly get to the gym. As the Geezer motto say; Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will. To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield. (from Tennyson's poem Ulysses).

    Jerry thanks for your suggestion. I find the shoulder pain as now become a weakness in the shoulder which has affected my bench work the most.

    This sure doesn't get any easier.In my case its tuff to stay motivated when you dont see any improvement in strength. But I do know the decline would be much faster if I did nothing . I wish they would talk more about that fact here. Plenty of stuff about those that didn't train showing improvement. I'm finding recovery time is my issue.

    Jerry, staying motivated is one of the tougher parts of training. I find the other commitments, i.e. family, job and heath limits, interfere and force changes to my training plans. I found that showing up and, if I am limited, doing a light work out it is better than not doing it. When I can do a workout I feel better and my knees don't hurt as much.

    I find the quote from Ulysses by Tennyson, the one recommended as a geezer motto that Bill Brommley recommended does apply;
    Tho' much is taken, much abides; and tho'
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are;
    One equal temper of heroic hearts,
    Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
    To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
