Shoulder Injury Prevention
Friday, October 01, 2010
Shoulders—I did the bench press to failure Monday plus the bench incline with DBs. I also did pull-downs. On Tuesday, I did internal and external rotation, triceps pull downs and biceps curls; on Wed, deadlift and biceps 21s; on Thursday, assisted pull ups and chin ups; on Friday, I got smart. I became concerned about daily workouts with shoulders. Joints need time to rest. Time to evaluate my strategy.
I will separate doing upper extremity exercises by 48 hours. When I work in extra sets during the breaks between sets of major muscle groups, I must not do upper extremity work on the days I’m “off” for shoulder work. Instead, I shall do calves or wrist curls or anything that does not involve the shoulder.
Good news: This past month, I lost a total of 6.5 inches!! Yes!!!
