Alden, took your suggestion and took a pass on 17.4 and 17.5. Was going to have to do the thrusters with one arm only given the shoulder tendonitis. Coached soccer on Saturday and then took larger family down south to Karchner Caverns (50 miles south of Tucson). Just an awesome day for myself, wife, two daughters and three grandson.

At the gym today and found they has a rower . Not the usual Concept II. This one had a container of water at the end. Spent 30 minutes rowing. Felt good.

After static and dynamic stretching, I did 3 X 1K rowing. It's been so long since I rowed, I don't know what is a good comparison. Each kilometer took 6+ minutes with one minute between sets.

@Pat - I think it is a good idea to keep the shoulder moving while doing things that don't irritate it. And I'm definitely a fan of rowing; you can make it as intense or as mellow as you want just by varying the pace.

@Patrick - You are not kidding; getting pull-ups back is a real challenge. I had about a ten year lapse after retiring from the Marine Corps before starting them again about ten years ago. I've never fully recovered my previous capacity, even though I work out more now than I did while on active duty.

Got up to late to go to gym. My Fitbit has a new app. called Fitstar. It provides whole body routines that can be done anywhere. Did the first one today for 30 continuous minutes: air squats, sit ups, push up, ring rows (I have gymnastics rings attached to a ramada in the back yard), trampoline jumps, brisk walks around the pool. Don't know how many laps or rounds, just winded thru most of it.

Ring pull ups not in the program . Just threw them in. My grandsons asked how they could grow their arms. Put the rings up for pull ups and dips.
