Default Don't call it a comeback

Starting the CA WOD.
My Lifting has been very sparse these days to say the least. I am starting the CA WOD, but will start well below MAX. 2 reasons, I have no idea what I can lift anymore, and I want to ease into things.
BW: 158lbs
BF%: 10%
HT: 5'7"
nutrition log:

Last night I took a slap shot right above my ankle on my tibia that broke my shin pad from point blank range. Still sore today. Nevertheless, I thought I had a decent workout, all things considered.

Saturday November 29 2008

* Snatch - (62.5kg) 95% x 1 x 2
* Clean & jerk - 95% x 1 x 2
****did only 60kg. The jerk was terrible, shoulder "tweaked"when snatching.
continued to clean 85kg x1 x 2
* Back squat - 90% (110kg) x 2 x 2
* Ab work of choice
3 sets
GHD sit up x 10
GHD Hip extensions x 10


As a note, 2 hours before this workout I did crossfit. Unfortunately, not by choice, I had to fill in to make the numbers work in the class I was teaching.
100 pullups
150 pushups
160 situps
200 squats

Not only was my shoulder bothering me, but my arms were way too slow to jerk weight after all that upper body work.

All in all, my consistency with the lifts has started to return, gaining more confidence with every workout, except for with the jerk. Which has always been my weakness. (As is a shoulder that doesn't always feel 100%)

* Pull-ups - 24kg 2 x max Shoulder is buggered, good thing I have a treatment scheduled in an hour

Wednesday December 3 2008

* Snatch - 57.5kg (80%) x 1 x 3
* Clean & jerk - 70kg (80%) x 1 x 3
* Ab work of choice, GHD situps 3 x 10, GHD hip extensions, 3 x 10

Shoulder gets so buggered it's not funny. Pretty much makes my arm go numb. Not helping me improve on my jerks. Really not a good sign, it seems to get triggered when I nail a good jerk, pushing my head and shoulders forward upon receiving the bar. Looks like I'll be investing in my keeping it mobile.

Saturday December 6th,

Today was supposed to be a max day. But....shoulder......
So, here's what I did:
Snatch
62.5kg Made
65 miss
65kg made

Clean and Jerk.
Stopped at 65 kg in the warm-up.

Back Squat
125 kg

Here's the shoulder dilemna
When dropping the weight from overhead, it really irritates the shoulder. It's very much muscular. The more I drop, the more I tighten up, and the more painful it becomes in that shoulder girdle. It feels like it's..... Pec minor, major, subscap, or even the deltoid. It does not at all feel stuctural, tendinous/ligamentous. So I don't really know where to go from here. Part of it feels like I should keep at it. But not only does dropping weight hurt, so does catching cleans, and front squat seems to set it off.
It seems to want to settle down quite easily. Meaning, it hurts, it's irritated, I stretch it out, wake up the next day, and it doesn't feel so bad. Until of course I start the process all over again.

It is my gut feeling that I shouldn't rest, but try and figure out what specifically is going on. Resting it won't allow that to happen. It may go away, but I'll never know why.
