    Shoulder Surgery Next Friday

    Good day everyone. So I’ve been having an issue with my Dominent shoulder due to a small tear in the labrum (slap tear). I attempted physio and other treatments over the course of approximately a year and a half with very little Progress. So im scheduled next Friday for a possible labrum repair or possible bicep tenodesis with some rotator cuff maintenance as well. I have the surgeon free range to do whatever he feels is best once he looks inside. My shoulder hasn’t made much progress up until last week. Now this could be my brain f’king with me but I am able to get into positions that I couldn’t get into last month. Like foot supported planche lean, hspu and even a few dips. Keep in mind my job has been extremely time taxing lately so training has very been minimal. My physio guy and I assume that once I start training regularly again I will likely aggravate the shoulder and be back to wear I was a few months ago if I don’t do surgery. I guess I’m just looking for a little reassurance as I feel like I’m possibly risking surgery for minimal results. I do still have some pain when performing internal and external rotation (no weight) at the end ranges. Although I’m really looking forward to 4 months off of work and almost feel like that’s half the reason I’m looking to do this. I’m hoping to be able to still train at somewhat of a high level. I have goals of planche, strict ring muscle ups and press to handstand. Any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks, mike

    Torn labrum options

    Hello everyone! Happy holidays and happy new year to everyone! So I wrote before regarding a slap tear that I have. I just went for my second MRI with an arthogram. So the verdict is I have a small tear in my infraspinatus small tear in my supraspinatus and I have a labral tear at the insertion point of the biceps long head. According to my orthopedic surgeon, he says the Teat is small it just happens to be in one of the worst places possible. Hence the reason it’s causing me so much pain. I can’t even do push-ups without severe pain. I asked him about platelet rich plasma injections which this doctor does and he seems to be trying to steer me away from it. He advised if it was my knee or my elbow he would say let’s definitely try it but he hasn’t seen much luck with PRP and labrum tears in the shoulder. So the options now are: 1. Subcromial decompression and rotator cuff repair surgery 2. Bicep tenodesis and rotator cuff repair. I’m not sure which direction to go. Just wondering if anyone has had either of these surgeries and comment on their ability post surgery. I do have a lot of faith in my surgeon and will likely tell him to do what he thinks is best once he gets inside but just looking for some opinions. Thanks everyone.

    SLAP tear advice

    Good day everybody. I'm reaching out hoping to get some advice regarding a torn labrum. The background. I started having shoulder problems in summer of 2016. I went from using the rings to using the parallettes to doing floor programs to now not being able to do anything with my right shoulder. I even went all the way back to foundations 1 to try and start over from the very beginning. Move such as table tops or crabwalk's seem to be my nemesis. I started having treatment with Physio, massage and Chiro back in October 2016. I've made no progress and things of actually only gotten worse over time. Make no progress my doctor finally sent me for x-rays and ultrasound. I saw the orthopaedic surgeon yesterday. He said based on my symptoms and explanation of my problems but it's very likely I have a slap tear. MRI is coming soon to confirm. He offered me a Cortsione shot which I passed on. So I'm just wondering, is there any chance of me healing a slap tear at this point without surgery? And if so, any recommendations on rehabbing going forward? Thanks everybody for your time.

    Training with labrum tear in hip?

    Dear folks at GB, I am writing because i need some advice. I am used to working out a lot but am troubled with an injury and i dont know what the best way is to start working out again. Around a year ago i started getting hip pains following an ankle sprain. After long sessions at the fysiotherapist i was referred to the hospital to get an mri done and they discovered a tiny tear in my labrum. So tiny that i do not think they will want to operate. The advice i was given in relation to working out was that i had to improve my flexibility and strength in the hip region (im very tight in my lower body). Right now i have pain with sit ups with my legs locked, leg raises, etc. Also, my hip mobility is terrible. You hear a lot of clicking noises from shifting tendons i believe. Do you think i could follow this program to improve these issues or you not recommend it? I just bought the fundamentals package and intend to follow it fo a week to find out if my hip can take it. Do you have any tips or experience/advice you could give on gaining hip flexibility with an injury like this? In the long run i intend to add swim training so i can work on my cardio too. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    FAI (Femoroacetabular Impingement)

    I'm very interested in pursuing GB to heal and strengthen a body worn from professional athletics. I have a quick question about GB and participants who have Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI). I'm curious if GB training is conducive to this injury and what precautions and experience Gymnastic Bodes have with the injury. Thanks for any insight provided.
