Haha. I completely understand that ice cream comment!!

My take is this, if you haven't royaly screwed your shoulders past the point of no return, you will benefit from mobility stuff. I love DOnnie's stuff as well mobilitywod.com. However if you are past the point of no return, then you have to make adaptations. ie buffalo bar, etc.

It depends where you are in the grand scheme of life. I have a screwed up ankle, cannot squat at all without an Olympic shoe. I have a screwed up shoulder, can't bench at all flat backed. But shoes and arched back and I'm fine.

Find what makes you able to do the movement and move forward.

Hack away at anything which isn't essential. Do what you love, and do it often. Fazc.

Everything competes for recovery so more assistance is not always the best idea. miked96

I hear ya Mike, but I guess my biggest concern is competing full meet. Im ready to resign to just doing push/pull meets and hope I can rehab my shoulders back, or learn to transfer B. Bar squats into regular meet squats, as Steve said he does. It just seemed it happened overnight that I went from working on a 1600 - 1800lbs total to not wanting to squat anymore other than an assistance to DL's.
Or maybe I should just be eating more ice cream and stop my whining?!
