          I gets tendonitis if I do too much running, so I'm thinking of working on a plan to get enough stamina, without excessive running, not sure how or if it'll work out to be honest....

          Oh yes, winner, winner, t-bone dinner....

            do you have the same issue if you do a heel to toe race walk?

              • Did a Y workout today. Mostly shoulders and back. Did 3 sets of narrow and 3 sets of wwide grip pull downs... heaviest set was 200 lb. It wont be long before I'm doing my body weight, and I will probably switch to pull ups instead. Now if my bench press would keep pace with the pull downs....

                  I don't really do race walking, do plenty of normal walking without any problems though....have got a couple of Mcdavid Achilles Tendon Support that I wear when running and have some heel wedges, but eventually it flares up again, I think its just wear and tear, but any advice is always appreciated.

                  Good gains on the pull downs though squire, I always said the bench press was overrated meself....have that problem with hamstring curls for some reason, can never make the gains there I did with other areas, the bodies a bizarre thing...

                    you are probably right about the bench being over rated, but it is the "standard" exercise for upperbody strength... True statement about the body being a strange thing...

                        • I must be the only person who doesn't like benchpress...

                          Actually, I don't do benchpress. I've had rotator cuff surgery, and while I can do everything else with no problem, benchpress any greater than half my bodyweight causes extreme, lasting pain (as in, takes weeks to go away). I can listen to my body. Pain? Don't do that!

                          Any variety of overhead press, snatch, clean and jerk, pushups, dips, kettlebell swings, none of those bother my shoulder. I figure benchpress isn't all that important for me! If I end up flat on my back with a boulder or tree on my chest, I'll either push it off that one time, or Captain America will show up and pluck it off me.

                          Easy solution. Don't do 'em!

                            yup.. pain is an indicator that you aint supposed to do whatever it is you were doing....

                            • i am not a fan of bench press either. i always do dumbbell bench, not barbell bench as my right side is stronger than my left so it makes my left side work. very few women can do anywhere near half their body weight but i do feel it in my rotator cuff about about 35kgs if i do barbell. dumbbell i prefer to use slightly lighter dumbbells and go for full depth which is tucking then dumbbells into my arm pits almost. and there i do a pair of 13kgs dumbbells if i have to do 3 sets of 10. more if i have to do less reps.

                              • All this anti-bench talk 'ould start a riot on the fitness forum....

                                I just do press ups in various forms, to keep on top of me pecs to help the posture as I do quite a few chin/pull ups, as practically benching don't really achieve much, apart from averting me a pair of moobs....

                                Seas, I think uni-lateral stuff is always better for the stronger side point of view reason.

                                Does that apply to soap operas, I can't watch them as they make my brain hurt....

                                Goldie, I'm with the Doc, pain is a sure fire signal that you're doing something you shouldn't be doing!
