I ditched skull crushers a long time ago, they just cause too many problems.  I prefer CGBP and pull over for heavy tri work and it helps avoid elbow and shoulder pains.

Wouldn't have been able to cgbp either. Just getting the 45lb bar into place with a pressing motion hurt.

Sorry to hear you're still having shoulder issues. Hopefully you can get this worked out soon.

I get pain in the left front shoulder that really hurts right after completing a set. Goes away in a couple seconds but it's always a nagging ache.

Well, I'm getting it evaluated this afternoon by a licensed PT. Hopefully they'll have some answers.
Mine was hurting during the sets until it was warmed up. So I was doing more warm ups prior to get blood flowing. Guess it didn't help.

Squats
BWx10
BBx10
95x10
135x5
155x5
175x3
195x5x5

Leg press
360x5x10

14 sets of legs (not counting BW or BB). Think I would have done more if I'd had more time.

Felt great today. Took 3 advil and a Sudafed before bed last night and slept very well. Squats felt good and since I wasn't tired, I was able to really focus on form and tight core.
Played around with foot position on leg press. Went from wide to narrow and positions in between. Felt it in different leg muscles with each change...kind of cool.
Now 2 days off.

Agree. I can always tell the difference after a crappy nights sleep.

Oh hell yeah! Nothing like a good nights rest.
Feeling good.
PT thinks I've got micro tears in the pec muscle underneight the main one (forgot what he called it) and a strain on the tendon. Manipulated my shoulder for 30 mins. Said rotors felt good. Gave me some light isometrics to do. Then placed a patch with cortisone on the top of the spot that hurts and another patch on the back, hooked some electrodes up. The cortisone is negatively charged and the current forces it into the area as a localized treatment. Less invasive that an injection. While that was going on he hooked a vest thing around my right shoulder. It pumped up so its pressing against the area and circulates cold water around. GD, I want one! Felt great. Same thing pitchers and quarterbacks use on their throwing arm.

Sounds like a hell of a time there. Do you have to do any PT for it?

Just some very light pressing movements against a door frame. It's more to manipulate the fluid in there than anything else and to get some light contractions going for repair.

Monday June 1, 2015

Squats
BWx10
BBx10
95x10
135x5
160x5x10

DB shoulder press
20x15
35x12
45x4x10

Face pulls
20x30
30x20
40x4x15

Front delt raise alternating
10x4x20

Side delt raise
20x4x10

Shoulders feel good. Of course pressing upward or shoulder iso didn't bother me before. Just when I activate the pec minor.
Was tired today and it showed in my workout. Forgot to take Sudafed last night and was all congested. Woke up about 4-5 times.  That being said it was an okay workout.
Got deads tomorrow. Gonna push for 4 sets of 3 at 315.

Surprised that the lateral raises don't bother you. It's murder on me.

Hope you get back to 100% real quick.

Nope, none of the shoulder iso's bother me. PT said my rotor cuffs are good. Said it sounds like my issues are all from the connection at the coracoid process. Pec minor and the bicep tendon all hook into it. Thinks I overloaded the pec minor and tore/strained the ligaments. With inflammation it caused tingling in my arm as the nerves and veins run under that. The swelling pinched the nerves and veins.
It's getting better. Just rest and active recovery right now.
