Closing Time

After some long inner battles I decided to close the site down temporarily.. It may or may not be back, I don’t know. I just need to focus my attention on other things at the moment and realign myself to get my mind right and really tackle this weight problem I have.. In the meantime, enjoy the song.

Set backs suck!

For those who have been injured know how much they suck. The time spent away from the gym, the pain, the frustration of losing mobility, etc can really drain you mentally more so than physically. I have had some strong shoulder pains for several months now and finally decided to have it looked at. To my lack of surprise I was given news that I did not want to hear. I have something called a SLAP Tear in my right shoulder. This type of injury prevents me from performing any sort of ‘push’ exercise such as bench press and shoulder presses. The pain is pretty intense so my physicality in the gym is definitely limited.

At this time I am going through therapy with resistance bands to try to strengthen my shoulder in hopes of the tear scarring over. I’m optimistic but history says that surgery may be best. Recovery after surgery is 6 weeks in a sling and and 4-6 months before full mobility is achieved! 6 months will be tough for me so unfortunately I may have no choice but to bow out of the 100K bodybuilding challenge that I blogged about earlier, bummer!
