Neither, using prescription anti inflammatory medicine. Might see the orthopedic surgeon. I know a good one. If you don't need an operation he will not push it unlike 99% of ortho guys. Just hate the whole MRI thing. Then again if something is broken it's the only way to to see soft tissue damage. Last time with the other delt he shot it with cortisone and it gave me enough relief so I could train again. 

Not fond of MRI's myself, being as how I suffer from claustrophobia. Wouldn't an ultrasound be a better way to see what's going on with your shoulder? It is super quick and easy. Awhile back, I had a lump on my upper forearm near the inside of my elbow that magically appeared after a blood draw. When it didn't go away on it's own after a couple of weeks, the doctor scheduled an ultrasound which confirmed it was a hematoma. A few weeks later, it was gone. The ultrasound took all of maybe 15 minutes.

"Ultrasound imaging uses sound waves to produce pictures of muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves and joints throughout the body. It is used to help diagnose sprains, strains, tears, trapped nerves, arthritis and other musculoskeletal conditions. Ultrasound is safe, noninvasive, and does not use ionizing radiation."

Leg day. Felt like I was pushing it really too hard. My legs were so weak when I was done a took a wrong step and had to grab something to keep from falling.  ;D I have zero calf development but when uninjured they work pretty good as in sprinting. Thighs aren't bad but no where near bodybuilding like.

Slow down...don't fall down. There's no rush.

Calves are a dead giveaway as to our genetic makeup. Forearms are too. But to lesser degree. I'd be very surprised if my calves measured more than 15". Sprinting is all about short-term muscular endurance and not muscle size.

I disagree to slight extent.  Sprinting is all about power.

You may be right but that's not what I read.

"Short-term muscular endurance: Sports that require short, intense bursts of activity require an athlete to have short-term muscular endurance. These sports include sprinting, football and soccer. With training, short-term endurance lets the players deal with fatigue and lactic acid build-up in the muscles."

Don't believe everything you read.   ;D In the end it's just working out. Hardly rocket science. Lifting weights has never been an erudite actively despite all the degrees and certificates they hand out for exercise physiology. There have been successful bodybuilders who can't remember what they did last work out and those that tediously plot out every move.

So true. As I've said (mostly to myself) just get your ass to the gym and do something. Anything is better than sitting on your ass doing nothing except complaining about how unfit your feel.

Cardio: 8 x quarter miles. Fastest in 7 minute mile pace. Hit the heavy bag after. Discussed my shoulder issue with the gym owner. He has a ton of trophies for power lifting and is a black belt in Kempo Karate. He said try benching with pinning the elbows into the sides of my chest. He said too much stress on the pec/delt tie in keeping the elbows out. Going to give it a shot. He said keep it as tight as I could in. He said a lot of guys with shoulder issues can bench that way.

Delt and arms:

Finished the workout with rotator cuff exercises.  I did 3 of the 5 directions for rotator cuff training that I  know of.   Two just escaped my memory.  Now I wait the see how my delt feels. Will it swell up internally or be better for my effort today? 

A hot little blonde asked my how my New Years Eve was? She was in this glute machine that has her on all fours as she kicks back. Her tits were hanging halfway out of the body suit top.  She had to know in that position what's happening with her top.  :P

Did jack today. It's a planned day off. Went to work then came home and had four German beers. Nice chill finish to the day.

Trained back and chest. Back is working great. All pulldowns, rows and deadlifts went well. Chest is a different story. Used slightly lighter weight. Delt hurt slightly but two hours after the workout I guess everything swelled up. Getting old stinks.


Gym observations:  Two huge bench press guys were lifting. I think one weighs about 220lbs and the other I heard say he weighs 232lbs. One got up to 460lbs and the other 405lbs. I trained back, chest and abs with 11 exercises. They both were still  on the flat bench when I left. I think one had elbow pain because between his many sets he would do tricep extensions with a light dumbbell. One strange thing was one also did seated calf raises in between the benching. My workout took me about 75 minutes so these two guys were basically doing one exercise for one hour and 15 minutes plus. Wow!

The day before I was in Atlantic city staying over for mini vacation. We ate two really great meals while there and the alcohol flowed. This morning when I got up I thought I looked pretty good. WTF? How did that happen. I think it's the diuretic effect of the beer.  ;D

One trains everything. The other with the bigger bench is basically a bench guy. Yes, a big bench but I'm not overly impressed with bench specialists. It's sick all those plates on the bar. It would break my arms to unrack that weight. I wouldn't spot a guy with that weight. If they blew out their shoulder you really need one strong guy to spot or two guys on each end.

Cardio: 8 x 440 yards (quarter miles-400 meters) fastest in 8.6 MPH or 6:59 mile pace. I really have to pick up the pace on these things. My mind and spirit is willing but my body is not.

Trained legs: Legs stink but a necessary evil. I was strong in everything except leg extensions. I blame the reps missed from yesterday's cardio session. I did standing leg curls instead of lying leg curls. Haven't done them in so long it took some reps to get into the groove. I find if the training session isn't perfect I leave pissed off. I failed at 10 reps in the leg extension instead of my usual 12 or so. One exercise out of 11 exercises on thigh, calf, ab and neck day I missed some reps on but that's what sticks in my mind. Accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative comes to mind. Wait, that's an old song isn't it?


 Took a high strength anti inflammatory my doc prescribed yesterday. Seemed to really take the pain out of my shoulder. Going to take it for a week or more. Actually slept pretty good without the throbbing.


Going to make some changes for shoulder injury recovery. For pecs these are the changes.


1. Hands facing dumbbell flat bench
2. Hands facing dumbbell incline press
3. Dips (strangely I know dips bother a lot of people's delts but it never bothered my delts)
4. Push ups. (They actually make my shoulders feel  good)

For delts I'm going to use Dumbbell press but not go as deep as I usually go. Normally I feel going through a full range of motion keeps joints flexible but when injured pressing out of full stretch position will lead to an exasperation of the injury if micro tears exist.

Cardio: 8 x 440 yards (quarter miles or 400 meters). Fastest one in 8.7 MPH or 6:54 minute mile pace. Broke into the six something range. Still slow but it feels good to hit the under seven minute mile pace. Heavy bag work after. I guess due to the anti inflammatory I'm taking it let me hit the bag with bad intent. I was whacking it like a wack a mole on steroids.  ;D

Gym observations: A really curvy 30 something year old blonde with a thick perfect ass smiled at me when we passed each other in the cardio section. Yes, that's what am reduced to.  Being happy a girl smiled at me.   ::)

I think having someone you find attractive smile at you is a great reason to workout at the gym as opposed to at home.  Someone flirting with you is not a reduction. It is a compliment.

Next time you see her there pop a cialis and slip into a 90's style training singlet.  Then when you pass her on your way to the drinking fountain confidentally say "sup".

I got game. I generally use, What Up instead of sup.  That's how I roll. I still have my clown training pants from the 80's. I'll perfect the look with a fanny pack and a mullet. I don't use cialis because of that four hour erection thing. I have to stare at pictures of the mayor of bodybuilding to make it go down.

It always goes down when looking at his pictures. How dare you? On the rare occasion it doesn't I use a mallet.
