    Angry AHH, my rotator cuff!


    Arg!! I just messed my rotator cuff while benching 295! I went down too low and really messed it up! Im almost at PCT and have made insane gains. I cant just lose everything ive worked for! Does anyone know how to repair this quickly?? The top of the bone even hurts to touch it. I cant take months off to let it heal but I know if i push it there will go any future bodybuilding. Im doing the ice/heat deal but man this really sucks! Anyone know what I can do?? I cannot believe this!

    Don't take this the wrong way, but you should have posted this in the training forum.

    From the sound of your injury, you need to lift with better technique and perhaps a lighter weight.

    Sorry, but messed up rotator cuffs don't heal overnight. You should incorporate rotator cuff exercises into your routine to give them some protection.

    You know, there have been a couple times when I felt like I hurt my rotator cuff too. I always took a couple day of solid rest and so far it has always healed up.

    But, if you think that you really injured it so bad that you are looking at months off, it can't hurt to go to an orthopedist and have an expert look at it.

    If the pain is as bad as you say, I would see a specialist pronto, and lower your dose on cycle, but be prepared to extend it a wee bit and keep eating if it was a bulking cycle (when you see the fat come on, slowly lower cals until you stablize), and go back to maintenance or a bit below and really clean if you were cutting. I say extend the cycle a bit so you can NOT LIFT while still on to help maintain your gains, go see that specialist, and then figure out what to do from there. You do have your PCT ready right?
