This summer has not been good for the upper left side of my body. My neck/left trap/lat have been having intense pain lately. My doctor is going to give me some steroids and if those don't work, I'll have to get it checked out for a bulging disc.
My shoulder hurts because after kayaking yesterday we got in this pool and thought it would be a good idea to try and stand on each others shoulders and see who could fall first and when this one dude stood on my shoulders, my left one just collapsed. I popped in back in place and it felt fine and then the pain came back.
Going back to the gym today. I'm just going to start some small physical therapy type stuff. It actually was just a dislocation so the only thing I have to wait for, is all the tendons that were bruised/torn to heal up.
It's been atleast a week and a half since I've been to the gym.
Shoulder is getting better and I did some high rep raises. Benched 135 as usual for a couple times. I'm finally at the point where 135 is easy for me and I never thought that could happen. I'm pretty confident I can blast through 155 and be to 185 in no time.
I'm about there myself. Last time I benched I blasted 115 8 times I believe. Just haven't tried 135 yet because my shoulder isn't 100% yet.

When I was at the same place, one day I decided to see if I could do 135. I did it 3 times and that was one of the best days. Huge milestone when you put a plate on there.
I benched 155 for 6 so I'm almost there. Also taking a week off coupled with this shoulder injury was great. Gave me new motivation for the gym and new energy. It's nice to take breaks every now and then since I just get burned out from going every day for months.
