    Fuck fuck and fuck

    Well its now been 5 days and I figured time to see how the shoulder is.

    Bench
    Bar only - was very painful at the bottom pushing off of my chest.. Restricted range of motion

    The Good News
    Got an acceptable chest and tris WO using cables. Definitely should be able to get decent back session in

    Shoulders on Friday is a definite no

    Not feeling very confident about this at all

    Ah The Irony

    I feel the deca in full low right now - It takes its sweet time - this is the time to stepping it up not playing with cables !! Oh well - It is what it is but nee to get to the bottom of whether to call the cycle or hang in there


    All because of a retarded spotter - Fucking guy let bar slip on 3rd rep 405 lbs 2 inches from full lock out - Got an unwanted negative at a very heavy weight and has caused trauma fighting the bar on the way down, right at the bottom is where its damaged - Cant even do 1 rep bar only without severe pain at bottom of the lift

    Praying its not the rotator cuff again - Just completed 2 years of Rehab to get where i am today

    Gonna try n get to see specialist tom

    Went to see sports osteopath

    Verdict some severe swelling of the AC caused by Trauma

    Acromioclavicular (AC) joint injury is a term used to describe an injury to the top of the shoulder, where the front of the shoulder blade (acromion) attaches to the collarbone (clavicle). ... AC joint injuries can be identified and effectively treated by a physical therapist, often ...*

    She pulled and cracked bones I never new I had

    Prognosis is ice lots of it every 2 hours very light isolated upper body work - cables it is - said I was as tight as a drum

    Could be worse reckons 1 week should notice the difference so long as I adhere to the plan

    She was cute - not an unpleaant experience at all - lots of compliments prob deal with lard arse all day long

    got 2nd opinion - Strain of the Pectoralis Minor

    Its not gonna a quick fix but happy with the diagnosis

    Good news was that she said i could continue to WO so long as no pain - Well that rules out any shoulder or bench work

    All i can manage with front raises are the weight of my own arms an very painful, lateral raises not much more

    Chest
    Got some cables in with minimum pain and isolated triceps for an OK WO

    Surprisingly pulling didn't seem aggravate it - So see what we can do for back tom

    dropped all Orals and will not pin anymore Deca

    Name of the game is to try and hold on to as much as i can - Shame shoulders were starting to look gnarly

    Cycle is Now
    700g Test Prop
    300mg Test Cyp
    525mg Tren Ace

    Dropped calls by 500 to 4500 and will adjust

    The pectoralis minor is the smaller sister of the larger and more talked about pectoralis (pec) major. But for such a small, seemingly insignificant muscle, it can sure cause some problems!
    The pec minor lives underneath its larger sibling, originating from ribs 3, 4 and 5 and passing superiorly and laterally to attach to the coracoid process of the scapula. Its jobs are to stabilize the scapula, as well as depressing, protracting and downwardly rotating it. When the scapula is fixed, pec minor will also assist in elevating the ribcage.
    The pec minor plays a significant role in posture, shoulder stability and balance. With posture, we are doomed with our anterior dominant positions, hunched shoulders and horrible posture. Habitually holding this position, in which the pec minor is shortened for extended periods, often results in a facilitated, overactive, tight, shortened (or whatever adjective you want to use) pec minor.
    Probably the most common injury to occur as a direct result of a short pec minor is subacromial impingement. In this condition, a lack of space below the subacromial arch causes the underlying tendons (typically supraspinatus, and also the subacromial bursa) to be impinged or ?pinched? or ?smooshed? with arm movements above shoulder height and especially with a rotational element. If there is inflammation or connective tissue thickening, there is not enough space below the arch, kind-of like when you over pack and you sit on your suitcase to zip it, the shoulder is the same way when it is too full in that space.
    Does this sound like you? What to do?? This lack of space below the subacromial arch can be directly linked to an overactive pec minor protracting (shoulders rounding forward), anteriorly tilting and downwardly rotating the scapula, effectively lowering the subacromial arch. So now, we need to spend more time retracting and balancing out the space.
    This altered position requires the elevator scapulae (neck muscle) and upper fibers of trapezius to increase potentiation in an attempt to maintain glenohumeral stability. The end result in this scenario is the tight neck and shoulders with active trigger points, as suffered by so many athletes and desk workers from these muscles working overtime.
    Left alone and untreated, you are paving the way to thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) :-(. The good ole? pec minor is also responsible for up to 50 percent of cases of TOS, aka pec minor syndrome. TOS is due to a compression of the nerves and blood vessels found in the chest and anterior shoulder (the brachial plexus and subclavian artery and vein).
    Clearly, the pec minor can cause significant problems for the shoulder joint, neck and upper limb in particular. Ultimately, the pec minor can have a significant effect on the lower back and pelvis as a result of compensations occurring throughout the kinetic chain

    DAY 53

    Well had great weekend with my new Hungarian

    Didn't make it to the gym other than to do my stretches - MUCH MUCH better this weekend, however long way off from being right - Happy my new Sports therapist has got the prognosis down and Ultrasound def made a big difference, I'll be hitting the gym tom for some light chest work which will give me a far better yardstick of where i'm at

    Diet went to shit as well - Stayed with the girl for weekend and was def short on protein and long on beers, WTF only live once - Girls a tiny little thing, i could have eaten her entire refrigerator in one sitting and i did
