So I got bad news from my doc, Ive got arthritis starting in my shoulder. It sucks because Im only 51!!! So that being said does anybody on here deal with arthritis?
I like training shoulders and chest and my right shoulder hurts and pops every time I try, even with lower weight.

Is it possible that there is any hope?

There always hope inoverdrive!

I'm 35, diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my knees when I was 28. My shoulders/rotators have also always been messed up from pitching in baseball, but you can definitely work around it.

I've never been a big bench presser, but I do a lot of pre-exhaustion with cable flyes, low cable flyes, the assisted dip machine, and the seated dip/tricep press before mainly doing smith decline presses.

For shoulders you can do machine laterals, neutral grip machine presses, cable laterals, etc.

You'll probably have to find your own routine, but don't get discouraged. You can find something that works.

Arthritis

I deal with arthritis in every joint Iv had reconstructions on. Both knees shoulders and my bicep. I have it in several places in my back and neck as well. Haven’t touched a straight bar in years except to squat with opting for dumbbells cables and the free motion type of machines. The pAin is still there but I wrote off the straight bar for good. Plenty of ways to train around it. Hope this helps brotha!

200mg of Deca per week does wonders for my shoulders and knees.

Which doc said it, primary, ortho or rheumatologist? You can see a rheumatologist and see if there's anything they recommend. I have Ankylosing Spondylitis, so spinal arthritis and it also affects some of the other joints in my body. I've had a lot of spine surgeries too. You just learn to do what you can. Warm your shoulder up good and proper before lifting.

It was an ortho. I started doing more mobility work at home to try to build up the smaller muscles around it that get neglected.

I have a few buddies who have arthritis and swear by deca in all
Their cycles to help lubricate their joints.

Hi Inoverdrive, I'm 61 and have had a hip replacement and a shoulder resurfacing (both on the right side). My other hip needs one and my left shoulder is pretty bad too. I still hit it hard. I think Alzadosghost said it best, the straight bar isn't your friend. Dumbells and machines, higher reps, and a lot of experimtation to find what you can do. I still squat, but I use a Manta Ray attachment and tie cords around the bar that hang down on each side so I can grip them instead of the bar. Kind of like a cheap safety squat bar. Anyway...you just have to adjust. I haven't tried Deca yet, and was considering BPC157 and TB500.
