Question is for Chris but would be glad to hear from anyone with training experience.
Today was doing one of the advanced work out and went too heavy on pull ups, I do them weighted with a 25kg plate. I did the 20 but the last few felt a tweak in my shoulder.
Had to stop the Bench Press after 2 or 3 reps as I could feel the shoulder was unstable.
I’m not quite sure which muscle is the problem, feels like one of the ones making up the rotator cuff but hard to tell as I don’t have a background in this.
Anyway point is that from past experience I know I need to let this rest, it doesnt feel too bad but if I continue it will just get worse.
This means no:
- squat (having the bar up on shoulder behind or in front is no good)
- DL - clearly the shoulder is involved a lot
- Pull ups
- Push ups
Basically most of the exercises.
I feel very strong otherwise and about 1/3 of the way through the V diet.
Question is - should I continue and modify my lifts, I could do most of the upper body stuff unilaterally, from what I read, it has some carry over to the side that is not being used, the problem is that this then stops being the V-Diet as the exercises are different.
Or is it better to just stop and start the 4 weeks again - this is something I very much want and need to avoid and is a last resort.
Any suggestions would be great.
