    bicep hurts, shoulder socket pops

    Been reading up on symptoms a bit and I seem to have very mildly hurt my left rotator cuff. This seems ironic to me as it happened after I deloaded my DL and OP, but did slower and more deliberate reps. I don't think I did anything wrong, but the slower reps may have revealed (exacerbated) a developing problem (probably overuse).

    It sounds like a torn labrum (SLAP tear).

    Just cleared out the junk food in my dorm. Snacks are just like cigarettes- it's fucking hard to ignore them when there's a pack/sweet and salty trail mix staring at you for days.

    I'm also fucking sore. I had my first real workout in a long time (was doing chins/pushups/running before). High volume + high intensity = dead muscles this morning.

    Ugh. Thanks. That sounds terrible. Considering just running all March. GF wants me to run a 5k with her on the 28th. Maybe I'll do push ups for rehab or something. I think the damage was done on my first deadlift. I had been deadlifting with loose shoulders, trainer said I should stiffen up, I stiffened up before the lift and my shoulder sort of "fell" on the way up. It probably ripped itself up on the way down.

    When you guys do pullups/chinups, when you go down, do you straighten your arms out, or keep them bent? Does it make that much of a difference?

    Like full range of motion sort of deal? The hardest part of a pull/chin up is starting it from a straight arm, so I figure that it must make some sort of difference.

    very true, its initial movement that places the most stress

    but dont move your elbows, they have to be fixed...this way you dont cheat

    Hurt my ever-volatile left knee kickboxing a couple of weeks ago. Didn't pivot enough, which gave it a jar, then wore a couple of kicks to it while it was already slow and suffering. Dumb-ass-me spars through it nonetheless, and ends up wearing a knee brace for a week.

    As such, have been taking it easy since, although the waist line is just starting to remind me of my lack of exercise. It'd been feeling OK for the past few days, so ran my 5 km again yesterday morning.

    .....and now my knee is sore as fuck again.

    ya, I tend to swim occasionally at my gym, but the 18 metre pool they have there is kinda pointless. To get anything out of it, I need to not push off the wall, and do it without kicking.

    However, April 1 I move into a new place, new apartment complex with a ~40 metre pool....so, yup, swimming is sitting high on the list.
