    I hear you on the age bit my dude

    Deep tissue work helps. Get a deep tissue massage or spend that money on a power massager instead of a slingshot.
    You are right , deep tissue works helps , and I am doing that too. I have the gun as well in between sessions... My physiotherapist is the one that suggested the use of slingshot. In my 50s its no longer a matter of just resting it. We changed forms and angels, (been pressing for 39 years) powerlifting and bodybuilding forms , this actually works as well if not better than the "shoulder savers " use of bands.

  • Use of Slinshot . for shoulder safety and rehabilitation

    Does anyone use Slingshot for pressing movements? I have overuse and age related issues with my shoulders and find that the use of slingshot helps reliving pain and keep me safe. the only issue is that I think it somehow causes pain in the forearms after extended use.
Working...
