Greg, my left shoulder is really giving me fits. Any recovery techniques other than ice after workouts, ibuprofen, shoulder dislocates? I don't wan to be a wus, but I also do not want to do permanent damage to those intricate shoulder muscles.
Greg Everett 2009-05-12
Jonathan - Get it checked out by a PT or similar before it gets worse. But yes, plenty of stretching, mobility work/warm-up, ice and ibuprofen will always be a good bet.
Jonathan 2009-05-13
Many thanks Greg! Will continue to do as you suggest and I plan to see a PT today.

Decided to try the qualifier workout for our region....

8 Deadlifts (300 lbs)
400 meter Run


- The run could have been a lot fast but the deadlifts felt good.... got bout 8:30, but with a huge push.. probably could have managed under 8 mins
