HEY EVERYBODY IM BACK! I had my first workout yesterday. Supprisingly after being sick for a bunch of days i only lost about 1-2 lbs. My strength was about the same as it normally is. I couldnt hardly eat anything the first day i was sick. I thought for sure i was gonna lose like 5 lbs.
Anyway, yesterdays workout went like this:
135lbs upright row, 2 rest pause sets, 5 reps pause 2 reps
135lbs militar press, 1 set, 2 reps
25lbs bent over raises, 2 sets, 13 reps pause 5 reps
FAce pulls (forgot the stats)
Power cleans 2 sets, 135lbs, 7 reps
Bent over row, 135 lbs, (forgot reps, around 8)
Pullups, bodyweight, 2 sets, 15reps pause, 5

UPDATE: My chest is still messed up, it is getting knowticably smaller and i am tired of waiting, i want to work it out!! does anyone think that lightweight easy workouts could be beneficial? Or is it possable that if the injury in my chest is with the connective tissue, that i could damage it more?

NOTE: I've been off glycobol since i have been sick. So it has been a couple days since my last dose. I'm thinking of starting it up again later this week when i get back in to the swing of things.

Nice to see ya back in action man!!! I'd get your chest checked out by someone in the know, no point messing yourself up for the rest of your life. I'm not saying people in this forum aren't in the know, It's kinda like saying your car has a problem and me asking you to hold the phone up to the exhaust to see if I can diagnose it. Somebody on scene wiht hands-on is the best approach, I can only speculate. Best of luck, and great to see ya on again!!

but actually it has been feeling a good amount better. I just fear it will take another month to be 100% again....

T: Core and Cardio
F: Core and Cardio
S n S: Off
Ice your shoulder 2-3 times per day and use NSAIDS (iburprofen, tylenol) every day.
Resume your normal routine the following week. If it still hurts, it's time to go to the doc. Your pcp can get you an x-ray, a cortisone shot, and a PT script. Go that route for about 1 month. If that fails, get an MRI and referred to an orthopedic phsyician. That's the correct way to do it.

I'd try and stay away from cortisone shots if possible. Not a big fan of them, but it's based more from repeated use than a single application, so once might not be as bad. Lots of people and DR's use the shots to treat the symptoms, not the cause. I meant no offense to celc5 by posting this, it's just my opinion.

IMO the "too many cortisone shots" is a problem from the past that I haven't seen occur in the last 3-4 years. I could be wrong though and just haven't seen the problem by chance???
Btw Buster, I'd give the same advice for the pec strain. Give it 7 days, get the swelling down with ice and NSAIDS (even if you don't "see" swelling). If that doesn't clear it up, then it's time for the doc.

also, electrostatic (TENS unit) helped me out quite a lot when my shoulder got silly on me. not to say it works for everyone, but exhaust every option you can if its cheap and causes no long term damage. don't try every option at once though

CHEST DAY - NO PAIN
I WORKED OUT MY CHEST TODAY PAIN FREE
I did feel a little pain in my chest, but i kept my shoulder blades back, avoided fast jerking movements and there was virtually no pain throughout my entire workout. i kept the weight fairly low, but i did at one point bench 225 for 3 reps. The coach/overseer for the strength and condition lab at my college approached me today and asked me how the injury was and i told him it was better. It feels good that so many individuals actually care about me and my injury. And now to the workout
Chest: 12 sets
Bench 135lbs, 25 reps: 225 lbs, 3 reps: 135lbs, 12 reps
Incline 135lbs, 10 reps, 9 reps, 8 reps
Cable x 40 lbs, 10 reps, 8 reps, 6 reps
pullovers 55 lbs, 8 reps, 7 reps, 5 reps
Abs: 7 sets
decline twists, 20 lbs, 30 reps, 20 reps
side bends, 70 lbs, 15 reps
crunches, 30 reps, 30 reps
hanging leg raises, 20 reps, 15 reps
How did my chest go from hurting from benching the bar only, and 5 days later able to do a full chest routine? I dont know, is it possable the ZMA I been taking for the past 3 days did the trick? or the extra glutamine or protein? cuz seriously, 5 days ago i couldnt immagine this would be possable.
weight: 161 lbs
supplements: protein, creatine, zma, glutamine, beta alanine. Will soon add in glycobol, and possably t-911.

I think what caused my injury was the jerking motions of benchin 135lbs. 30 reps. I was throwing the bar up and down so fast, it was bouncing, i wasnt really getting a full range of motion and it was jerking my chest mucles down real hard. I think that is what set it off. So I'll avoid that from now on.

before bed - ZMA
FIST DAY BACK ON GLYCOBOL
Legs: 16 sets
squats - 225 x 12, 275 x 8, 295 x 5
