Well damn! you really are unlucky with injuries. I would still continue to train if i was in your position, but any exercise that puts any strain on your shoulders, you should do almost weightless. Pretty much just using the bars. This essentially and unfortunately includes pretty much your entire upper body. Try to stick with a light compound exercise where your shoulder is concerned, like military presses and when you do muscles like chest and biceps, try to use a light weight and isolate it as much as possible.
Anyway, good luck with your injuries, mate, i'll say a prayer to the one true god, Arnold Schwarzenegger
Training has been on a major halt. Coming off the back injury I was good for a week, made some good progress with your suggestions and hit a huge wall. I went for some incline bench and was out of position (too far forward) and felt tremendous pain through my shoulder. Turned out I pulled my shoulder from my peck to my bicep, and my trap from my neck to the bottom of my shoulder blade. The muscles have finally healed but my shoulder is still bringing me in some pain.
It's ok.. I'm confined to RICE until my shoulder gets better. Had a pretty bad pull a few weeks ago and haven't given it the rest it needs ultimately extending the amount of time I am out for.. Hopefully this is the last injury for a while haha.
Yeah do like your example. I was thinking something else but your example is better. It's called progressive overload and its one of the best techniques for building muscle. Also sorry for the late reply, it was midnight for me at your last message.
you should do increasing weight. 8 reps is low, so the weight needs to be high. you want a weight that you can do, but only just get the last couple of reps in. if you can do the 8th rep comfortably, then increase the weight.
Yeah back is feeling much better. Still being very cautious with it though. I can't afford another 2 weeks out. Did something to my shoulder today doing incline bench which scared the crap out of me. Hoping it's just minor.
