Hey guys. Thanks for all of the replies. I'm on week 3 and it's been a little rough. PT is great but painful and achy. I didn't get much feedback from the surgeon or my PT during my follows about what to stay away from. They told me I should be able to do any exercise I want to after I completely heal. Don't get me wrong, I don't think they are brushing me off but I would like a more tangible response. And yes, I've heard you should stay away from overhead press if you have shoulder issues...but does that apply if you've had your shoulder issue surgically corrected? Just curious what everyone's thoughts are. Thanks again!
" Well, recently I've had shoulder surgery and will need to cut back on overhead pushing motions." You need to let that completely heal, then follow the surgeon's recommendations.

Hey guys, I do a lot of strength training due to neck issues and to try to keep my posture in good standing. I really lean towards incline bench to hit the top of my chest and it feels like a more natural angle if I were to organically be pushing something. Well, recently I've had shoulder surgery and will need to cut back on overhead pushing motions. I'm not a big fan of flat bench but am not sure of benefits versus incline. I'm also open to any other chest exercises that don't include overhead motion.
I'm always trying to better myself. I strength train, do yoga with my daughters (dad of 2), fast and even drink fat burning tea (see link to article in my signature). I'm always trying new things so any feedback is appreciated to help me get over this next challenge in life.
