If you’ve been around for half a year or more you might recall that last year on Thanksgiving I hurt my shoulder pretty bad in a game of football.
As much as I work to be indestructible, heavy collisional forces can only be withstood so much.
I couldn’t lift my arm even to parallel. And just trying caused lots of pain.
Seeing that it stayed like this for a few days, it appeared to be some tendon damage.
So I set to work…
I did a wide variety of things.
It wasn’t just about the physical.
It also involved the mental and emotional.
It also involved the nutritional.
But I did do lots of physical exercises that were suitable for where I was at.
This began with as much mobility as I could.
Eventually, I could do some stretching that felt good.
In a couple of weeks, I could lift light weights.
This gave way to a wider variety of exercises and more weight.
Within a few months, I was as good as new.
Just hit a big PR in the Kettlebell Snatch that I’m working on. Oh yeah, its with a 106 lb. kettlebell. 70 times in 10 minutes.
So my right shoulder is doing just fine.
