I'm running on I believe 0 hours of sleep from yesterday going into today because I crammed for two midterms. I know I closed my eyes for at least 2 hours tonight, but I have no idea if I actually fell asleep or not. Despite that, I still plan on going to the gym around 12 to do my shoulder workout.
By the way, my teardrops and my whole ass is incredibly sore.. which is surprising because I haven't slept yet. Soreness on me typically FULLY sets in ~48 hours post workout which is why I can still kind of use my legs (albeit lightly) on powercleans the day after squats.
My right elbow started to have a tiny bit of pain at the joint a couple weeks back, I ignored it thinking it would go away on it's own but it progressively got worse. It didn't feel bad after the 275 x 1 bp but after that I hit the dumbbells and it started screaming. I don't know for sure but I think a lot of pressure on my right elbow joint inflames it making it ache/hurt. I only feel it at elbow is bent at any angle < 90* or if the weights are heavy, then there's a dull ache for the duration of the workout. It's not a big deal and I can work through it, but instead of being so hard headed I should give it a rest.
Throughout this week I've kept in mind to minimize the amount of pressing I do. Today's main press/lift won't have as much stabilization and its going to be a lighter weight on the bar so I don't pressure or aggravate my elbow as much.
Behind Neck Seated Smith Press (full rom) I guess I'm lucky enough to have flexible shoulders
5 x 10 (95, 115, 135, 135(9), 145(6) )
DB shoulder press (was doing a few lighter sets to feel my elbow out and burn up my delts and surprisingly, no pain!)
4x10 (25, 30, 35, 40)
5x10 (40, 50, 60, 70, 80)
Seated Lat Raises
5x10 (15, 15, 20, 20, 25)
Bent over Lat Raises (back = floor)
4x10 (10, 15, 15, 15)
2x20 Face Pulls (30, 30)
1x5 Muscle Ups + 1x6 widest grip pull ups
After these I usually play with the cables for a few really quick sets of really light lat raises in different variations then grab the 5-8lb dbs to run a rotator cuff circuit. I can't really explain the motion but I'll put it on video one of these days
I didn't get to shrugs or do my farmers walks, I was with my training partner and he was in a rush to get out of the gym within 45-50 minutes so I blazed through my workout with probably about <30 seconds of rest between all sets. All in all, today I went pretty light but really strict on form to feel out my elbow joint and get a good squeeze from all the muscle contractions.
Feels like it's not heavy pressing that will hurt the elbow but high impact movements. After the muscle ups I felt my elbow a little but nothing serious
