Ross_Harkins said:Cheers kirkynick and brownbear, oddly I think parallel bar dips would be another one could do provided elbows are tucked, so might resume these with close grip overhead press, and pressing with the tricep bar or neutral grip dumbell press. Going to have to start rows with bar or dumbells again too. Will see how this goes whilst doing low bar, if still an issue may have to swap back to high bar squats, even though I'm far better at low bar.

I always find parallel bar dips kill my shoulders, even when i have no rotator cuff problems. But I suppose it depends on the person.

I'm just recovering from a presumed rotator cuff injury. Not sure how I exactly injured it (but probably from doing dumbbell from floor to overhead, too much pressing in general and no direct rotator cuff work). But it's much better now. I did the following (much the same as what you say you have done):

1) Dropped low bar squats in favour of high bar (will never go back)
2) Dropped all flat and incline barbell presses (will probably never do them again. But i'm not competing in powerlifting)
3) Did neutral grip seated dumbbell presses, incline presses, cg push ups (not all way down). They are much harder on the tris.
4) Did, and still do, tons of rotatory cuff exercises (with weights after training, weightless before training)
* Full Can (high reps)
* Lying side external rotations (high reps)
* Plate Halo (high reps)
5) Started doing vertical pulling exercises for lats - usually cg pulldowns
6) Was already doing horizontal pulling exercises for the lats but did more - elbow out dumbbell rows (hit the rear delts more)
7) Put ice packs on my shoulders immediately after every session involving even the slightest shoulder work. Used bag of frozen green beans
8) Took contrast showers - pretty hot/very cold. Would aim the head of the shower right at my shoulder to almost massage it. Would always finish the contrast showers with a cold dose.
9) Took hot baths 2-3 times a week for 20 mins with epsom salts
10) Tried to find a comfortable sleeping position. It was difficult.
Although the pain wasn't incredibly bad it was always there; and it was annoying. Maybe taking a pain killer to help sleep would be a good idea (that is if you have problems with getting enough sleep)
11) Did specific stretching exercises for the shoulder area.

Did all that and the shoulder feels much better. Dropping the bench and low bar squats, doing the rotator cuff exercises and taking the contrast showers were the main contributors to my healing I reckon.

One more thing, I will keep doing all of the above. Won't stop just because my shoulder now feels better.

That was my experience. Hope it helps.

I'm 35. I doubt anyone younger will have experienced this sort of thing.

Because the younger ones are busy knifing and beating up the teachers...

I guess it's all down to how you define things.

MrSmall said:Two things.
In russian texts I have read, weightlifting is "heavy athletics" and track/field athletics are "light athletics", but together they are referred to as athletics.

And the other thing, its 1,000,000 members of weightlifting federation, that will not mean only people training at the top level, competing internationally, at full time training schools. Maybe it is more like the amount of lifters registered with BWLA or the IPF, and how many of them qualify and get sent to the international competitions, the numbers will add up on the national level.

Yes, that's the way they say it 'heavy' and light'. But they are referred to seperately in most circumstances, otherwise no one would know what you are on about for sure.

But when I used athletics in the list of top 10 sports in Russia i used the English meaning of athletics as I wrote it in English. I didn't write 'light' athletics as we don't say that in English, and therefore it wouldn't be a proper translation.

No, in my opinion there never has been 1,000,000 weightlifters even if you include casual lifters and general members. But no one really knows for sure.

The figure i stated above of 102,000 from the offical video will probably include all lifters, including club lifters and general members of the organisation, not just competitive and top lifters. But that is still a hell of a lot of lifters. (That would equate to about 20,000 weightlifters in a country with the population of the UK. Imagine if we had that many lifters). But the video is from 1989, there were probably more lifters in the 1970s.

I will contact the Russian Weightlifting Federation and ask them. But i am pretty sure 1) they won't answer and 2) they won't know exactly.

What's more interesting though is to know how many lifters China has.

he's not that huge. Around 130kg I think

I saw him at the Moscow Powerlifting Champs. He was obviously in the "off" season as he really didn't look that big. A lot bigger than me (but I am a 90kger), but not the huge beast I was expecting.

Edit ! - it's says on the banner 1989 Mark ! You twit !

Happy Easy to be deceived by the b/w footage though...
As far as i can tell, it doesn't say what the comp is at the beginning.
