Haha I actually saw those a while ago up at D!cks. I emailed UA and told them if they put out a Wolverine one I would buy it and they actually emailed me back saying that the shirts were selling enough that they were looking into makin a second line. I'm still thinkin about picking up a long sleeve Spiderman one

Yeah, man, that would be badass. I think they really are making a second line though coz I've seen a picture of a Thor one that looked cool (although at first glance it kinda makes you look more like some cyborg or something). Deadpool one would be sweet too.

Shoulder is still causing me problems, and with the Physio getting me to do more movements in the sessions, we've concluded I have terrible thorasic spine mobility/flexibility.

Every time I have to reach above my head and slightly back, it kills my muscle. I was actually surprised at how little flexibility I had. I have about 5-10 degrees and I should be getting 30-45... lol. Right side is particularly bad, as Trentknicks mentioned he also had the forward shoulder/smaller pec thing going on for the right side, which causes for even less mobility in the thorasic spine on that side. Hence why I keep injuring the right side. Tighter, less room to work with, less give on the muscles.

Basically caused by a lot of sitting, and chest work and shoulder work.

Ah well, no gym for another 3 or 4 weeks, but at least I've figured out all the problems.

Can you do pulls though? Yeah, having disadvantages in your body construct like that and overloading them with too many presses (especially benches) will make it bad. Really bad. Maybe you can do some lighter Deadlifts or rows or some sort of carry.

Heard this plenty of times too, way to much emphasis placed on the more visible muscles used in push movements. From what I've seen, most non-serious shoulder injuries can be helped by cutting down on overuse and strengthening the back.

Yeah after I messed my shoulder up last year, pulls are what got me going again. Cable pulls and prone rows with the dumbells really got my shoulders strong again and (knock on wood) I haven't had any issues with that shoulder again since

The thing is, my chest is actually quite weak compared to my back. I've pulled 235kg for deadlift, at anywhere from 90-100kg I could do 20+ pullups, etc.

Once I dropped to about 90kg, I could still do all those, but I was only benching 120-125kg for 5 or 6, couldn't do too much on the seated press compared to a few people at my gym, etc.
Comparatively with people who were similar strength to me on pushes, I could do a shitload more weight when it came to back exercises and pulls.

6'3 man. Which is always why I've found it weird that I'm good at pull ups in particular.

You going to the UQ gym? I used to train there a while back. Now I'm just at the Indooroopilly snap most of the time. Well haven't been there in 4 weeks due to the back, but yeah...

I live on the GC, so I just go to my local PCYC. Measured myself the other day and came out at 6'1 and 3/4 of an inch.

Pretty good effort on the pullups, I'm really only at 10-12 with strict form and pauses at top and bottom. Good work on the strength too, that some serious pulling power for a tall guy.
