Pointless post but i just wanted to express my joy :thumb:.

For the first time since my RC injury (which took five months to heal!!!!), i did heavy dumbell shoulder presses tonight. Managed to pump out 50kg dumbells a side for 8 reps, un-spotted!!!!

Boy it feels good to be back!!!!!

Thanks Uriel. I know what you mean. The 40's and 45's went up ok, but i nearly sh*t myself trying to get the 50's up. Got them up just about, thought i'd struggle to hit four but just kept pumping. Last rep was a killer but i got it and i'm chuffed to bits!!!!

Agreed. RC work is now part and parcel of my life. I don't want it to happen again. Its happened twice in two years and i'm getting a good idea on how to keep a lid on it now. :thumbup1:

That makes me shudder just thinking about it dude, i remember them well. Rolling over in the middle of the night to be woken up with that awful pain. The worst is when you think its on the mend and then you roll over and you just know its gone again. Grrrrrrrrrr.

I took to sleeping in between big pillows to stop myself from rolling over as i tend to move about in the night and it seemed to help. Icing it before bed took a lot of the pain away too.

Good work chief. I can only manage 40s. I train alone so the hardest bit is getting them up, due to being a man hating rapist.

Nice one mate.

My A/C joint still isn't right now, and it's about a year now since I first did it :thumbdown: Haven't trained for about 9 months now and as a result have lost a fair bit of muscle. It's sh1t.

Chiro says to try exercising it but TBH I'm sure it will inflame it again. Nothing major wrong with it i.e. no major pain but still have soreness at times and feel like lifting weights will just inflame it.

Maybe I'm expecting too much when waiting for there to be no pain at all :confused1:

Did any of you guys who have got over ligament probs like R/C have any soreness when resuming training, or did it feel 100% right?

Thanks dude, yeah training on your own makes it difficult. Trying to get big weights into position without someone helping is just asking for an injury i reckon. I won't be attempting it again without a spotter, just in case!!

I experienced soreness for a good while after, until fairly recently actually, hence why i've not tried any heavy pressing until now.

I think a little pain is to be expected to be honest, and was advised this would be the case. As long as you warm up with RC excersises, don't push too heavy, and ice immediately after you should be fine. You will get to know how much pain/soreness you can take before saying enough is enough for that session.

Thanks mate, thats still some big lifting. I fully expected that 40's would be my limit, hence why i went straight on them to try and get a good heavy set while i was fresh. I just wanted to guage my strength after not pressing heavy for a good while. I was suprised at how comfortable they felt and actually had to double check they were 40's after i finshed my set!!!

Thats when i thought, lets see how far i can go. :thumbup1:

lol impressive like. But watch you don't push to far m8 and end up tearing something, like I did last week :cursing:. Still sore but it's getting better, pulled a muscle in trap from doing a lot heavier upright rows than I usually do. Gonna be paranoid about doing them again :laugh:

I agree totally mate, i felt good tonight and i obviously just hit my peak this week, but will be well aware of the dangers involved. Its not been that long since my RC healed, so i will be going back down in weight and upping the reps to make sure i don't have any re-occurences. :thumbup1:

Damn that sucks mate, hope it heals soon. I'm not a fan of upright rows to be honest, have been advised to steer clear with RC problems too.

Good stuff m8, slowly build it up.

And im a big fan of upright rows, found they have done a lot for me in terms of adding width and size to my shoulders as a whole. I will take them out for 6 weeks when I start my new routine and add them back in after that.

RC injury is horrendus as it puts you out from almost all upper body exercises. I've hurt my RC before in the past, nothing to what you did it was minor but still it put me out for a good few weeks. Not good.
