I have been lifting for 3 months now and have made amazing progress lifting 5 days a week (30-40min workouts).I gained 20 lbs in 3 months… probably 5-7 lbs fat and the rest LBM.
2 days ago I tried to beat my record on the bench and this was a big mistake. I didnt feel it at fist but the next day my shoulder was in real pain whenever i lift anything or even opening the door.
I couldnt even lift my cell phone without taking 3-4 advils every few hours. The pain is still there though not as bad right now. I dont neeed to take any painkillers but if I lift something heavy it will probably hurt.
I am most likley going to have to take a break for a while becuase of this and my worry is that I will lose the strength gains that I had made. Are there any useful supplments that can actually help speed recovery time? I am currenlty using creatine and glutamine supps. This is my first workout injury and I really have no idea how to handle the problem.
