Pain in the sternum is almost non-existent after eliminating dips. I also eliminated dumbbell flyes for the time being... I'm feeling a better stretch with cables and cybex machine flyes.

New ailment alert :evil:

I think I'm starting to get some micro tears in my left rotator cuff...
Nothing excruciating but it scares me a bit. Went easy on the db bench and limited my ROM for the 1st time... props to me!!! Woo. By limiting the range, I didn't get the normal stretch that I am use to but I got a different, almost better pump!.... plus my shoulder didn't hurt as much as the prior week.

I should probably take a couple weeks off from exercises that involve the shoulders but I'm too stubborn. Need more gains. Woo!

Shoulders

#114 Postby Troy » Mon Mar 17, 2008 8:56 pm

Notes on the shoulders:

I have been having some problems with my left shoulder so I have incorporated some of the techniques that I found in some articles at Testosterone Nation. Link is here: Shoulder Savers: Part I

Mainly I incorporated pushups and when doing pressing exercises keeping the upper arms at a 45-degree angle to the torso; tuck the elbows instead of letting them flare out and limiting my ROM. It felt weird on DB bench press and DB overhead press but I'm willing to try anything (other than taking alot of time off :oops: ) to keep my shoulder healthy. Hopefully if I incorporate more of these tips it will get back to 100%.

Front delts are super sore today, it feels as if I worked more of my front delts than my chest yesterday... I assume keeping the upper arm at a 45 degree angle to the body works more front delts...?

This is the quote from T-Nation... "This might very well be the most important one of all. I must admit that when I see a lifter benching with his elbows flared and his back flat, it makes me cringe — not only because he's ruining his shoulders, but also because he's really limiting his strength potential."..... "It's well documented that the elbows-flared ("bodybuilder-style") bench markedly increases stress on the glenohumeral joint."

I'm gonna email the guy that wrote the article and see if he has any tips for me...
