My shoulder between my neck and my deltoid is jacked up right now. All the compound movements I do right now effect it except squats

any ideas for exercises to do?

just go do squats for a couple weeks?

I can’t risk hurting it more because of all the baseball/softball activities I’m doing; I have to keep throwing

it only makes the side of my neck go numb :roflmao: :roflmao:

this is the same chronic condition that made me quit masters swimming so I could keep surfing

You should still deadlift, bench and OHP...you just need to find an entry point where the pain is tolerable and the stress from training doesn't;t make it worse. My favorite is tempo work...I would start with something shy of RPE-7 12 reps 2 sets. If this is tolerable and the pain doesn't get worse during or after training try three sets the next week. As you progress drop reps to ten, then 8, then 6 etc as you're able. When things begin to remarkably feel better start doing the movements at regular training speed and maybe kick the reps up again...depending on how you feel.

There's two trains of thought.

1. PR or ER
2. Take what your body gives you on any given day.

Strength isn't adding weight at regular intervals. Strength is the ability to lift more than yesterday, and to be able to display that provided the conditions you need are present.

If it was as simple as grinding your teeth and pushing through then a lifter would never miss a lift because he lifted the same weight last week.

I don't disagree with Rip or Starting Strength. I just found for me, staying away from high intensity work day to day gives me the opportunity to do other physical activities without feeling fatigued. I firmly believe that your training should never get in the way of your lifestyle. My numbers continue to go up.

Right now I'm lucky to get one day a week of strength because I've been surfing 5 days a week. I haven't been running as much either. I might be overdoing the surf a bit . My shoulder, neck and low back are chronically sore. I've even taken advil before a surf because the waves were to good to miss. I've been doing strength work on Fridays so that DOMS day are Sat and Sun. Come Monday I'm back on the surf mission...
