    Don't worry about my shoulders quikky, they are fine, nothing wrong whith behind the neck press if you know how to do them! A bit off-topic, but if I remember correctly, didn't Rip get surgery for his shoulders a while ago?
    Personally I have never got surgery for anything so far and my joints are beyond exellent due to my superior training principles...

    Nothing wrong with them, except the humerus/AC joint impingement.

    He's had several shoulder surgeries. Interestingly enough, he thinks it's due to neglect of the overhead press and too much focus on the bench press during his younger competitive years.

    You can't really compare joint health of a hobby lifter, with the joint health of a competitive powerlifter. If you are a competitive athlete, winning is the priority, even if it means pushing yourself beyond the norm. Orthopedic surgery is commonplace in many demanding sports.

    Some people does not have the build or flexibility and should not do them at all. Other people should not do squats, pulldown or pullups behind neck either! Other people get problems in their elbows from french press or biceps tendon problems from doing bent over rows with a supinated grip. Experienced lifters learn about their limits and if they are smart enough, they don't go beyond them...

    No if I'm lifting with my left arm I just brace myself using my right forearm against my right leg. You could use a bench though, whatever feels the best for you. I'm also doing strict reps with 90 lb which is more than I'd likely be doing if using a dumbbell.

    Loving this discussion! Nothing to contribute but I'm just starting to lift heavy and it's great to read all your experiences.
    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    Great thread. One of the best in a long while.
    People too weak to follow their own dreams will always try to discourage others.
