Damn Shoulder & an Endurance Workout for my Athletes

I did a 30 minute run BEFORE training last night and tweaked my Rt shoulder during first set of long cycle.  This damn thing has been bothersome since surgery in 2009 (SLAP lesion).  For all you kiddos out there who play contact sports (rugby, football, etc.) LEARN to tackle correctly and don’t get lazy.  It feels like I possibly strained my infraspinatus/teres minor again.  Feels twitchy with sudden movements.  So what do I do?

  • Active Release Technique (ART)
  • Chiropractic Adjustments (all comes back to the spine)
  • Ice
  • Stabilization and strengthening for RTC

I do not believe the strain is serious enough to  warrant rest time.  If you are experiencing ANY pain, don’t be a (ignorant) hero, stop in and get checked.  Denver Chiropractic Center

Here is what we will be accomplishing tonight at Personal Best:

Warm- Up

Endurance Circuit- After each exercise we will be doing 30 seconds of air jump rope for active recovery.  Repeat circuit 5x.  This will be a LONG workout, objective is to improve work capacity and keep the body moving throughout.

  • Snatch 30 sec/arm
  • Thruster 30 sec/arm
  • Upper Body Complex 30 sec
  • Back weighted lunge 30 sec
  • Hand 2 Hand Swing 30 sec
  • Bent Row 30 sec/arm
  • High Plank 30 sec

Stretch it out

BOOM, gonna be seeing some great Sweat Angels tonight!
