    No sweat. With the board press, if you don't have a training partner, you can shove the boards under your shirt, or use a resistance band to hold the boards against your chest.

    Try a few different combinations of board height. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 board, and see which one is the lowest you can go without causing any pain.

    It's all about the clinch. The clinch, I said.

    I don't train with a partner, but I've got a metric ton of resistance bands from physical therapy. One of the light ones that I don't use anymore should do the trick.

    Last work out I gave bench pressing with dumbells a shot. Just to see if I could at all.

    I started with a 50 in each hand and the only thing that hurt was the initial push off the chest and then securing the weights as I lay down and sat up between sets.

    So I'm definitely going to try the board press thing.
    Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
    and remember what peace there may be in silence.
    As far as possible, without surrender,
    be on good terms with all persons.
    Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
    and listen to others,
    even to the dull and ignorant;
    they too have their story.

    That's actually odd that DB pressing causes you no pain while BB does. The DB definitely requires more shoulder recruitment.

    Do you bench with an arch?

    ****. I hope I didn't mistype.

    I meant to say that the dumbells hurt, I haven't tried the barbell yet but I think it'll be fine.
