40 kg one arm swings, power swing pyramid, crawls and pushups

Back to one arm swings again today and just a few weeks off of the heavy stuff showed me just how quickly that top end strength conditioning falls off. It will bounce  back but I payed the price today :)

Shoulder however felt the best it's felt in eons and I actually woke up with NO shoulder pain at all, unheard of! I really really worked on internal rotation ( hand in the small of the back) ALONG with self myo fascial relief and it's made the biggest difference in ROM and pain yet. Excited about the possibilities.

My left knee pain turned out to be caused my overly tight quads ( go figure!) that was keeping my kneecap too high as I went into extension. As soon as I figured that out it went right away; had to release the knee cap DOWN as I went into extension. Wow. Still have to worry about muscle tissue quality and tension even on the new knee. Won't forget that again. Not used to having ANY pain in the new knee and I didn't like it at all.

Full stretchout
lots of OS rocking, nods, unilateral rocking, seiza sitting and shoulder release work
