Damn, I never thought I'd see the day when I get injuries from simple things. Seems as if I get injured much more easliy as I get older and the injuries take so much longer to heal now. Excuse me if this seems like a rant...because it is...lol.
I injured my right rotator cuff during a charity football game against a combo team of the 49'ers and Raiders back in 1993. It took a while for it to heal, but it is good today. Well, two weeks ago, everything was going fine. I trained chest and just finished my sets on flat bench. I went to incline dumbells and kicked up the 120lb dumbells into position using my kness. I felt a slight twinge in my left shoulder. I finished my workout and later paid the price. My shoulder was sore as hell from the rotator cuff all the way down my bicep. So, I took two weeks off from lifting to heal up. I went into the gym yesterday, did some flat bench, but didn't go too heavy. I ended my sets with a set of 275 @ 8 reps. I went to the dumbells, started off light at 90lbs. As soon as I lowered the weights, the pain was there again, but even worse. I had to work around the pain. I couldn't even do skull crushers. I'm now living on advil...lol. I know if I go to a doc, they will xray, then MRI, then tell me to not lift, put me on an anti-inflamitory, maybe a painful cortisone shot, physical therapy, blah blah blah.
Sorry for the rant dude. It's just that I made some great gains this last bulk, only to go into PCT with an injury. Very annoying to say the least. Although I'm comfortable with my age and how I look, it just sucks how long it takes to heal now.
