Bench was pretty tough, stomach is funky and I wanted to blow chunks for most of the session. Energy levels are very low, 2 sessions left.
Positive is no shoulder tightness or discomfort towards the end of the session, pretty confident I've cracked the problem and have some good solutions.
Like I said in a post recently I find my right shoulder hunched forward quite often and after some searching found some really effective stretches. The first video is basically the problem I have where the arm sits in the front of the shoulder and I've been doing a lot to force it back and stretch the soft tissue. The stretch with the hands behind the back is not comfortable at all but makes a big difference.
Something that I though up yesterday and tried out was lying face down with my foam roller underneath my right shoulder when I had some time. Also slept with a pillow rolled up underneath it.
Last thing I do is thoracic foam roller stretching and lat rolling.
All these things together have made a huge difference already so thought I'd post it up.
