About 3 months ago I was just 170 lbs, with about 14-15% bodyfat. And now I'm about 195 lbs, of course i think much of that was fat. I'm not sure but I would estimate that only about 10 lbs were of muscle, because my diet wasn't to clean. I hurt my shoulder playing football and would only hurt when i would do exercise like Lat Pull downs, bench press or any should work.
So I have taken 3 weeks off lifting to see if it would get better and still hasn't so I just recently went to see a doctor about it and they said that it seems to be a shoulder joint inflammation. He recommended that I take Motrin, put a heating pad on the shoulder, and of course no working out untill its good.
I've already went 3 weeks without going to the gym, and i'm feeling like I'm getting weaker and fatter already.
So my questions is. What would be my best alternative now?
Should I keep bulking and only working on legs and arms, where i wouldn't be using the shoulder? ( before the injury my goal was to keep bulking until the end of the year.)
Or should I Cut and start over when I'm 100%?
(I've never cut before so would I decrease my intake by 250 calories a week or what?)
