Some shoulder work
Question: What is the absolute worst thing you can do when you have a fucked up shoulder?
Answer: Whatever I did today.
In keeping with my ďGet busy living or get busy dyingĒ injury rehab protocol I decided to just do some heavy pulls and push-presses. I figured the hanging, yanking and thrusting would shock the nagging injury right out of my shoulder. Yeah, I thought of that idea all by myself, but it's your's to use now too if you want.
It actually may have worked, if feels a lot looser. Either that or itís just still totally numb from the severe amount of new internal damage I just did to it. But unfortunately, since I read on Facebook yesterday that some Crossfit guru has come out and declared icing injuries is no longer good and since I read it on Facebook it has to be accurate, I can no longer ice my joints. Iím really caught between a rock and a hard place now. He has me all confused, I just donít know what to do now. I might just try to bathe it in coconut water and swab it with jerky, Iíll see what the guru thinks about that.
The 321 Combo- Three high-pulls, two hang cleans then one push-press
130 x 3 pulls, 3 cleans
125 x 3 pulls, 3 cleans
I was pretty happy being able to throw up a 120kg push-press considering my lame arm.
