Trouble sticking the landing

  • Sep 10th, 2019 at 12:03PM

Having taken a couple of days off last week to ease the pain around the neck and shoulder I threw myself back into the workout on Friday, followed by a cycle Saturday morning and another workout. I think I overdid it because the pain is now back with a vengeance - stiff neck, sore upper back, pain in the shoulder and trap muscles. Arghhhh, very frustrating.

I think this program will end in a whimper. Will need rest and physio and I think I'll struggle to lift the dumbells again over the next week . Hopefully can get back into the cardio later in the week with the aim to be on the bike over the weekend. Will try and stay on diet, blog and read the lessons for the remainder of the program. I really liked the results I was getting so I need to figure out what went wrong (weights too heavy, poor technique etc?) as long term I think there are benefits for me doing the upper body workouts.

What a bummer RA. Hope you sort it out and can get things going again soon.

    Take it easy Randall - get the aches sorted out and then ease gently back into it.

      Oh no I’m sorry to hear it Randall! Smart move to rest. Sounds like your muscles need some TLC, hot bath and massage.

        Ugh, Randall. I'm so sorry to hear it. Form is so important when working with weights. It is possible that you were using weights that while manageable were a bit too heavy and impacted your form. As you said, keep the diet tight do some light stretching and walking. Be careful not to jump back in too quickly.
