Monday

45 minute walk OWP
Yoga class


I did go to my yoga class last night. I decided that although there might be some positions I couldn't perform, I could at least get some benefit from those I could. Actually there wasn't much I couldn't do, except for stretching my arms up at the start of each Sun Salutation. I had no trouble with any of the other positions, not even with Plank or Downward Facing Dog.

However, I am wondering if I should weight train as planned this evening or not. I'll see how my shoulder is feeling later on. However, if I do go, I'll just do a lower body workout.

At the moment it's still aching, though I can now lift my arm right up above my head again. However, there is a definite 'clunking sound' as my arm goes up and down, and a pain that shoots down through my bicep to my elbow as I lower it. I've got an appointment to see my osteopath on Friday, so I'm hoping he can realign whatever is out of sync.

I didn't lift weights on Tuesday or today, but I plan to hit the gym on Sunday.

I saw my osteopath earlier today. I've strained my anterior deltoid and also an inflamed bursa. I've also got some scar tissue from my previous shoulder problem.

However, he's happy for me to continue weight training, but to leave out the shoulder presses for now. In the meantime, he wants me to add in Laterall Pull-Downs, wide grip and close grip, and bent over raises, all with fairly light weights, which will help to strengthen my rotator cuff and also the Posterior deltoid, and in turn stabilize my shoulder overall. I've also got a series of stretches that I need to do on a daily basis.

One thing he doesn't want me to do for the time being though is swim.

Saw my osteopath again yesterday. He's pleased with my progress, says to continue with what I'm doing and he will see me in a couple of weeks. He very much doubts that I will need to see him after that, as long as I keep doing the exercises he recommends. I can also go back to shoulder presses, but must keep the weights really low at first and then gradually build up from there.
