FT Questions....

FT Questions....
A little update on the shoulder issue. Been rehabbing aggressively, researching some BPC 157 (big Dave Smith style). Shoulder felt a lot better, especially from the break on it during the cruise.

Decided to go heavy again during today's first upper load session.

Tried incline smith; shoulder felt off, only did warmups.

Tried incline DB, shoulder felt off, only did warmups.

Tried flat DB bench: could only do 100s for 4 reps before realizing something's going to break.

Did 1 set of pec deck to failure. Felt like crying afterwards (not from physical pain but from the pain of not being able to train as heavy). Talk about first world problems...

Anyway, I hate to bore you with this stuff. My question is, is it fine to load the chest with some high rep (15-20 rep) to failure work and logbook that instead of my normal heavy 6-8 rep loads because I think the tendonitis is still flaring with those loads?

I have gotten tremendous growth off loading the chest with heavy progressive training; feel real bad taking a step backwards with this shoulder business.

I really appreciate you on behalf of myself and others for taking the time to read through our nonsense and answer these questions.

Sorry to hear you're still struggling with this.

BPC-157 isn't going to remedy everything, as I think you're finding out.

Did you try to seek out someone to take a look at your shoulder?...

I don't think you have a choice as far as doing something different. It could be that lighter loads will avoid aggravating the issue, but that's an absolute certainty.

I don't think you know what's going on in there yet, so it's very much a black box at this point...

What kind of a specialist do you recommend seeing?

A chiropractor or physical therapist? Or maybe go to a sport specific doc?

Wish I could do more than play the same old tune here, but really, you'll need to figure out what that pop is in your shoulder, i.e., what structure is popping.

My first guesses would be that it could be a cartilage issue. Secondly, it could be an impingement (supraspinatus or biceps brachii). You'll need to figure out what's wrong before you can go about fixing it.

If the broomstick stretch is helping, in the right measure, that's a good start of course.

Many people with shoulder issues (and other recurring, nagging "niggle-type" injuries) find that they need to do certain pre-hab exercises religiously in order to keep the injury from cropping its ugly head. So, if you can get it under control (some time away from the exercises that give you problem), you may be able to keep it that way (and move to back to those exercises).

So, as always, though, I'd check with a medical practitioner (same sorts of folks as I recommended just a few posts up, including also finding an orthopedist and perhaps an athletic trainer who can help figure out what's going on).

Hope you get it figured out!

(If this helps, I had a nagging pop under my knee cap many years ago that went on for well over a year and kept me from training legs properly. When I finally stayed completely away from doing the things that aggravated it, got the issue under control, I was eventually able to move back to training as I had been. Smile )

Nevermind; just had to reread this post.

Will continue rehabbing, will hunt for a physical therapist, and get some scans of the area. Really hoping it's not any kind of rotator cuff tear; there is crunching and grinding in the joint, but it's also present in the left one which doesn't hurt.

Any of the above! Many folks will be limited by insurance as far as who they can see / where they want to start. If you need an MRI, then a chiro or PT would probably refer you back to a Doc. A Doc might refer you to a PT (but rarely a Chiro). Some Chiro's are very good and others not as proficient in working with folks who weight training. If you can find one who specializes in Sports Chiro, does ART, Graston, etc, then you're probably on the right track. Smile
