Thu 9/10 - Upper

Workout: Work Gym

61 + 11 w/u = 72 mins

Worked out over lunch today. Left shoulder really bothering me. Going to doc/PT after WO. Incline was ok. Paused reps, but shoulder bothersome. BOR felt heavy. Haven't done these in a couple weeks (been doing seated rows). Next I did 3 heavy sets v-bar pulldowns and one back off set, supersetted with 2 sets of seated lateral raises and 4 sets crunches.

Next I did 3 heavy sets of skull crushers and 1 back off set. Supersetted with incline curls and rear delt raises. Finished up with 2 sets for rope pushdowns. Good WO.

Doc and PT appt: 
I was able to get in to see the doc. Wrote a scripts for anti-inflamitory and muscle relaxer. Didn't have a clue what the problem was. Luckily, the PT was in and he spent some time with me. He had me do some tests with him. He believes it's a bicep tendon in left arm that is damaged where it attaches at the shoulder. He did a bunch of rotator cuff tests on me and doesn't think it's that, thankfully. He prescribed something that might actually help. A stretch and 2 strength exercises with a 2 pound weight. I work on these several times a day and see him in a week. No pressing until then, and no movements where the arm is away from the body.

I mentioned to him that I was using a sling for my left arm recently to keep me from moving it and reaching for items (which bothers the shoulder). He basically said I'm an idiot. I'll wear a sling so I don't pick up a 5 pound jug of milk, but I'll go to the gym and work out with 75-80 pound DB's. I got his point :)


I weighed 172.2 this morning.
