We have great customers who want to share their shoulder rehab stories. Here’s an email from two-time World Champion powerlifter, Pat Susco, who had extensive shoulder surgery in 2010.
Pat, who is 60, also sent a link to this video of himself doing weighted dips….incredible! Here’s the video and below it you can read Pat’s Rotater testimonial:
Pat Susco’s Rotater Testimonial
..hey guys sent you an email off your website, not sure if it went thru…..anyway, a video of my shouders working 100% @ 60 yrs. old thanks to the Rotater …..wow, what great news ! ……what I did forget to mention was that the people who train in my “home gym” are also big Rotater fans and in fact I`m still waiting for one of them to return my Rotater dvd…..In short I`ve had 2 left shouder surgeries and rebounded well after the first in `94….however, the second in 2010 was much slower to respond , possibly because I was now 59. It was also a more extensive procedure with repair to a torn rotater cuff, torn labrum and the shaving of my clavicle. After a year of self rehab I was still quite limited on what movements I could do, the weight I could use and my limited ROM.
Then by chance, surfing the net for “new” shoulder rehab ideas I came across the video for the “Rotater” and was amazed by it`s versatility. I had already purchased a “shoulder horn” and loved it , however, it was limited to one movement. I purchased my “Rotater” from “Lifting Large” which is pretty prominent in the powerlifting community. I watched the video and was blown away by how many aspects of the shoulder the Rotater hit. Using it religiously 3x a week (on both shoulders !) in conjunction with my training, I regained full ROM , was pain free and even doing weighted dips !….My biggest concern now (having a powerlifters “more is better” mind set) is the discipline to continue to train smart and cycle my training to allow for “light days” and recuperation from the “heavy days” !
I should mention that along with now being 60, I`m a 2x IPA World Champion (`93 & `95 ) and multi-time masters champion (55-59) with an official squat of 920lbs. and deadlift of 745lbs. both done while in my forties.
