Hurt my shoulder, again.

  1. Hurt my shoulder, again.




    Way to go me, i managed to reinjure my shoulder lifting in the gym again today.

    What should i take to help it get back to health? I was thinking about

    Animal flex stacked with super cissus rx.

    Opinions please


  2. Something like that could help, but the best thing is going to be time off. That coupled with not starting back to soon and rehabing it correctly (bands, stretching, etc).

    Also you could take ibuprofin or naproxen (Advil, Motrin, Aleve). You can put an ice pack on it for 20 minutes every couple hours or so as well.

  3. sounds good bro IMO
    The difference between who you are and who you want to be is what you do.

    You're right, time off is the best cure. I can lift around my shoulder pretty effectively. I thought i was back ontop of my game ready to lift for strength again... and i was wrong. I've never tried supplementing to help my shoulder heal so i figure i'll give it a try.

    Another lesson learned though.

  5. Ive had quite a few shoulder problems in the past also. I usually jump on some animal flex and switch most of my presses to the smith machine. Not needing to balance the weight allows me to still work out, just less stress on the joints.

    Time off as stated always works

  6. 4 caps (3.2g) of cissus a good dose per day or should i up it past that? I bought 2 bottles but if it's effective i have no problem picking up another.

  7. I just read about Osteo-Sport by AN, anyone tried that?

  8. Cissus rx is money.

    I think the bottle says load it @ 2pills with each meal for a week or so, then 3 am 2 pm. I do 2/2 and like it there.

    How did you hurt your shoulder?

  9. Friendly competition lol.

    I hurt myself maxing out in high school, i just pushed my chest workout too hard with my wo partner.



  10. Cissus I think is what made my rotator cuff able to pretend it wasnt hurt...its still sore now but I can lift more weight than I did when I hurt it a week ago lol o.O

  11. I'm currently working through an impingement. I recommend starting here:

  12. ^ damn good article!

    Question though, and sorry for the threadjack,

    It says arms fully relaxed, when I stand up and relax my arms, they are slightly bent, maybe 7-10 degrees, and it looks like I would totally fail the flashlight test, but if I straighten my arms to my sides, my palms exactly face eachother. But straightening your arms contracts your triceps, so I am assmuming straight is not relaxed?

  13. I believe relaxed they will be slightly bent. you can blame all the bicep curls for that. :P I think i made it 2-3ft with that test Biggest thing is make sure you are pinching your shoulder blades together when you bench.

    hmm. My lats are outpacing the rest of me right now, so at rest my lats kind of push my arms forward a bit...I guess implementing some of this stuff couldn't hurt anyway, will definitely do more pronated stuff

  15. I know its not what you want to hear, the best thing is time off.

    if it is very serious and has been bugging you for a while get an MRI to see exactly what you are dealing with. then take a month off and do what it takes to get it better(cortisone shot, prednisone maybe, and physical therapy)

    all lifting will do is make it worse, and in the long run you can progress in heavier weights instead of that shoulder holding you back all the time

    This ideal except the cortisone shot ( at least it did nothing for me) however, if you do continue to lift make sure you do not do anything that causes any pain, even a little bit.

    I've tried Osteo-Sport before - not a bad product, but I think it's a bit overpriced.

    I'd recommend going with the bulk SuperCissus RX. I just put a tsp toward the back of my tongue and wash it down with water 2-3 times ed. I'm still recovering from a shoulder surgery I had back in December, and I started taking this stuff a couple of months ago. There is definitely a noticeable improvement with my shoulder. I wouldn't say its a miracle drug, but it does help, and I'll probably keep taking it.

  18. I got my Animal flex in the mail, and every one of the Gel Caps was busted in the packs.

    I didn't buy it from Nutra Planet but i can't really return it because i'm in afghanistan anyways. The product was delievered in perfect condition but when i peeled the metal lid off the tub i found out the product was ruined.

    Animal flex did nothing for me. Try elasti joint.
