Hazzard's Training Log: The Return From Injury To Swoletrophy
As a few of you know, I tore/partially tore/inpinged my internal rotator (subscapularis) of my rotator cuff, haphazardly throwing around a 140kg whilst wearing my slingshot. Went to the doctor a few weeks ago and he thought I had torn it, but since then and in the time it's taken for my shoulder specialist appointment (on the 25th), it's got a lot better. I can now get my hands into proper squat position, but it still feels pretty tight in my shoulder so hopefully another week and I'll be doing full squats again.
Deadlifting is fine and arm work is fine, so I've been nailing my triceps and doing lots of chest-supported rowing (I haven't tried barbell rows yet, but my shoulder doesn't like the 'pull' of the cable row, much like cable curls), plus various squat, pull and leg training variations. I'm going to end this period of injury with even bigger legs than I already have - which is saying something!
Tomorrow is my first day of attempting to bench since the injury occurred and I'm going to keep it nice and light, wear my slingshot, and work to a 3-board. Be interesting to see how it goes.
Thought it would be a good time to start a new log, as with this injury being preceded with some pretty hench-tastic lifts it was time to start anew anyway and start a new cycle to creep back up to even bigger PBs. Currently sitting at a 250kg squat, 175kg bench press and a 265kg deadlift.
Bring on the (mostly) shoulder-less training!
