Rotator Cuff Repair in Weightlifter
"Last Sunday (3 months after repair) I trained on the two lifts at a friend’s club where I was able to train on a women’s 15 kg bar instead of using a 20 kg bar. My main aim was to check if a 3 month lay off had affected my speed and timing; it hadn’t. the weights I used were light and comparatively easy and I snatched 30 kg (40%) and clean and jerked 47.5 kg (50%) without any problems.The left shoulder is now very stable and “fixes” the weight overhead better than the right."
