    Yeah that 15 seconds really helps get the blood back in the muscle.
    I did the same today on preacher bench, last waited a bit longer and got more reps.
    A fucking world of difference. I am keeping my RIs short as hell and I am gonna try to lean towards all of them being 30s instead of going up in weight.

    Both my shoulders hurt. I really dont know what to do. Ive rested them, stretched them, avoided certain workouts...

    My shoulder has been feeling very off. I decided to do a 3x3 scheme and start with dumbells. Truthfully, I dont know if it was better. My shoulder didnt hurt too much when I got to bench, but it coulda been warmed up since then. Bottom line, intensity has to be on RIs and less on weight.

    Its a pain that is felt on the lateral side of the upper arm. Not in the middle of the tricep, but in between the tricep and bicep. It sucks.

    Nice workout.
    Luckily my shoulder has recooped. I have been doing some light pulling and mobility exercises. that seemed to help. Also I did Decline bench, that semed to help too.

    I hope to hit the flat bench next week.

    I am sure the warm up helps!

    Yeah, I dont know what the fuck is going on. Ive been doing a lot of singles lately followed by heavy supplementary movements. Gonna start heading the other way, sadly.

    Still though, lifting weights and generating a sweat and a high heart rate beats the treadmill any day.

    How long did it take you for your shoulder to feel better?

    only a couple of weeks this time I got lucky! I was doing some gentle pulling exercises and it cleared up like magic! i was worried I messed up the rotator cuff. feeling great now.

    Deads @ 275 is very respectable. One thing I have to remember is to maintain form. when I push is when I get injured. Take your time. I was suppose to lift today, I set up the gym and went in and took a nap. LOL After my nap I rode 35 miles though. Will have to lift tomorrow. been sleeping like crap lately. I should sleep well tonight after a 2.5 hour ride today.

    I had some wings with a PT who is in school and I asked him how I would know if I messed something up in the rotator cuff department. He said, young kids injure it from some sort of event, older people in their 40s will fuck it up by over use. So how would I know? Certain tests and a MRI?

    Unilateral DB Rows
    50lb DBs for 5 reps
    60lb DBs for 5 reps
    70lb DBs for 5 reps
    80lb DBs for 5 reps
    90lb DBs for 5 sets, 5 reps (30 sec RI)

    Bent Over Rows
    185lbs for 8 sets, 3 reps (30 sec RI)

    Weighted Chins
    25lbs for 4 sets, 6 reps (30 sec RI; last set needed RP)

    Unilateral DB Preacher/Spider Curl
    35lb DBs for 2 sets, 6 reps

    Reverse EZ Bar Curl
    50lbs for 2 sets, 8 reps

    Caveman
    Eliptical for 25 min

    Static Stretched


    Ok, well both rows were a tad easy. 95lb DBs next time and 195lbs for the barbell rows.

    Chins will be a do over.

    Now, heres whats hilarious. I babied my shoulder the whole time, using light weights to 'test' it out and nothing. Flawless workout! Until.. until I picked up the weighted EZ bar. Something in my trap on the right side pinged. Ugh. It hurts to flex my neck down and to the left now. This is a common ailment with a pull day, but its usually happening when I use bad body english with the rows. Not when I am picking up light fucking weight!

    Ok, things werent easy today, but no RPs. Really, if I have to stop and reset at any point, thats a tough workout. If I do it early in the sets, its too tough.

    Anyway, I can go up 5 lbs for each, but heres whats mind boggling. My neck is ~50% better! What, I took 4 advil PM and thats what helped? Not really. But! I have been taking a shitload of these Omega 3-6-9 pills that I get for a BOGO 50% off at Vitamin Shoppe. My blood stream is saturated in it! Look, I fucked up my trap YESTERDAY. I should feel 10-25% better.

    Amazing.

    Ice on a shoulder is difficult to apply alone.
