I dislocated my shoulder on a blown snatch on March 15th. This was devastating to me considering I’ve been making the best gains of my life for the last six months on a modified version of CT’s HSS-100. I’m using the basic template and have customized the movements over time.
I’m 26 and otherwise healthy. Never been injured in 13 years of competitive athletics. Diet is dialed in, I’m stronger, bigger, and leaner than I’ve ever been. The first doc I saw thinks it’s a torn labrum and has sent me for a contrast MRI, but I want a second opinion.
So far I’ve been jumping rope, doing farmer’s walks, split lunges with weight held at my side, and some chins, but the chins hurt a bit and don’t feel all that good on the shoulder. I squatted tonight but even with a low bar position it didn’t feel good since the tear is a posterior one.
What else do you guys think I can do in the meantime while I’m waiting for further workups?
Thanks so much in advance for your help. Any support and advice from the Nation would be much appreciated during this trying time…
