Hi there folks,
I want to workout using weights to burn excess body fat and trim up, then aim to build some mass and definition.
My problem is, I had a bad motorcycle accident 5-6years ago in which I badly broke my right clavicle in 3 places all full breaks, the bone has fused off set and my ball and socket joint on my sternum end no longer has a 'socket' end. I have always been able to hear bone rubbing / crunching whenever I rotate my arm which I have been told will always be there now.
I did some physio at the time of recovery but that was it.
Today we started off doing form so no weights to start with, on the bench I struggled to even keep the reps going with only the Olympic bar, when I tired the 'standard' 60kg I couldn't even manage 4 reps before my right side felt completely 'gone' I cant explain the feeling other than I felt I had nothing there at all.
We moved to try the dumbbells and some laying flys again I was fine for the first couple of reps using 13.5kg weights but once I got to about 7 reps the same feeling hit and I just couldn't lift it back up.
I got on the squat rack and did that without the feeling coming and managed to do squats ok, I just need to work on form some more for it to be of any use, I also didn't have any troubles using machines to do Lat pulldowns or on the seated chest row.
and so finally my question,
What can you folks recommend that I do in terms of exercises, and overcoming this collar bone problem?
my stats are:
Body Shape: Mesomorph
Thanks for taking the time to read.
