Well, this past year has been an amazing year for me in bodybuilding, I hit some new highs, made some amazing gains in strength and size. I had some nice compliments from a lot of people as a result and it felt good. Well, it all cam crashing down on August 8th when I felt a pain under my right clavicle during a set of DB bench presses. Not being smart, I finished my workout, although I did cut it short. I took the remaining portion of the week off and tried coming back light the next week but the pain was back! I saw an ortho and he suggested taking two weeks off. I did that and after the last two days of light workouts, here I am again....more pain.
I believe I did not warm up enough this particular day.
He thinks it is a strain or sprain, doesn't think it is a tear but it does hurt!
Sp, I am told to take another two weeks off and it may take months! I am watching me lose muslce and get out of shape. I can no longer look at myself in the mirror.
So, I am willing to take the time off and just do cardio, what else can I do. But, I can;t let this happen again.
Any ideas on ways to avoid? What could I have done differently. I can tell you i will take warm up even more seriously going forward, breaking a sweat, going through some light sets and stretching before hitting heavier weights.
