I was finally able to start doing barbell press lifts about two months ago, I hadn't been able to do them since before my first surgery about 4 years back. The movements feel clean and I'm gradually getting stronger, so I've been very optimistic. I found the exercise-ball push-ups to be harder than they looked, it's recruited a lot of stabilizing muscles. Also I tried to focus on the upper lats today, an area that I've always had a difficult time developing. Besides fighting a cold it was a good day.
