Super sore pain or "I hurt my shoulders" pain?

not sore. I think last week's CF workout jacked up my shoulder. Tried going to the gym today and could not lift the barbell overhead without serious pain in my left shoulder. Worked on using lighter 5# weights for range of motion exercises and that was uncomfortable and hurt in some areas.

Gotta go back to the doctor again.

On top of that my weight is down to 160, diet is very poor and im not eating much just not really hungry, sleeping little, stress is high, motivation down, waiver ended up being a PDQ, etc.

Not a good time to be me right now. Don't recommend it.

I hear ya. I think the heat has something to do with the food I can hardly eat and that is rare for me.

Hang in there man you are going to be ok!

Good news on the shoulder feeling better. Why did you not get paid for 8 hours worth of work though?

Well I started this new job working as a bar back downtown and despite working 8 hours they simply said i wasn't getting paid. Guess someone did not want to split the cash properly. My friend did split his take with me though so i didn't go home completely empty handed.

Tonight was much better however.

Still shoulder discomfort. This week will have to be a easy go by feel one. Weight is down to 158, still feel really fatigued.

7/6

Press: 90 x 5, 100 x 5, 115 x 13 (same as reps/weight from April workout)
Deadlift: 220 x 5, 250 x 5, 285 x 15
F. Squats: 135 x 5, 155 x 2 x 5
HLR: 10, 10, 10

wow, big difference in feel and motivation today compared to yesterday. Big improvement in shoulder flexibility and deads felt powerful. Deads felt metabolic at 15 reps, I was gonna go for 20 but saved the energy.

I'm trying to figure out how I should implement F.Squats into my workout so that I can make decent strength improvements. Tomorrow I will be training again with my old training partner and my Oly coach so I'll just consult with him since he uses 5/3/1 with great success.
