I’m not sure if this is going to work. I’m not using any weight and I can already feel irritation in both my left shoulder and my left wrist. Any form of resistance training may be gone forever for me. I’ll take it day by day for awhile and see what happens, but it looks like another cycle of doctor appointments is in my future.
Specifically what part of that caused you discomfort Al? You may have to shy away from back day but I know we can work on biceps. Hang in there man.
Honest to God Mike it doesn't really seem to matter "what" I am doing or how little weight I am using I still have what I would call discomfort in the wrist (lots of popping and clicking) and hints of irritation in the left shoulder. Sitting here just now I pulled my hand back to check the wrist and it snapped so I held it up to my ear and rotated it to listen to the grinding. After that I raised my left elbow like a chicken wing and felt pain in my shoulder at about 45 degrees from my side. Neither injury is soft tissue, I can tell it's in the bones. It's pretty obvious from my log that I'm really taking it easy here. I'm not whining or feeling sorry for myself but I must say the future does not look very good. I've backed WAY down in the last 6 months and taken every form of supplement you can imagine that "might" help. Sure I could quit doing back but even doing biceps with light weight and the cuffs still effects the bum shoulder. Bottom line is I have a couple of problems that ain't going away.
