Recovery tip

I am always very achy where my shoulder meets my pecs. Not certain whether it's the actual shoulder, my pecs, bicep tendons, or whatever. On Monday during my weiny deload I did 100 reps with the bar. Now mind you, I did not perform regular bench, so I did not beat myself up further. That said, on Tuesday, the effected area felt much better.

I know I am a usually the last one to the dance. I don't do this stuff for a living. I try and learn as much as possible, but when it comes down to it, most of my results have come from hard work versus smart work. However, I think I might have finally stumbled on to that whole extra workout thing. After this week's deoload when I get back to normal lifting, if I get that achy pec/shoulder feeling, I will perform the 100 reps with the bar the following day. I'll be interested to see whether it provides the same benefits when I'm into my regular training.

Stay tuned.
