HIGH VOLUME LEG WORKOUT PLUS SHOULDER INJURY FIX

December 19, 2016

 

 

Before we start this intense lower body workout I want to discuss some problems I’ve been having and explain how I plan on fixing them. I’m hoping that what I’m about to tell you will be useful for all of you watching so you can learn from my mistakes and prevent or fix injuries you may experience when weight training. Now if you’ve been following my channel you know I’ve had issues with my left brachialis in the past and recently I’ve been dealing with complications in my left shoulder, more specifically, rotator cuff pain and instability. I do believe that my brachialis pain and shoulder pain are related so I’m going to be breaking my ass trying to kill 2 birds with one stone, or as I like to say mixing two beers with one patron. Just kidding but that does have a nice ring to it. There are 4 muscles that make up the rotator cuff which most people don’t realize, they just assume that it’s all one system but it is In fact a group of tendons and muscles that connect the humerus to the scapula. When even just one of these muscles is not functioning correctly the shoulder will become unstable, painful, and prevent you from making those much desired gains in the gym. So since I’m currently dealing with my own issues I thought it would be a good idea to structure a training program that would allow me to still train extremely hard while working on recovering my left shoulder simultaneously. I plan on uploading a series of videos demonstrating my workouts and mobilization drills so that you can follow along if you’re also dealing with similar problems. Regardless of whether or not you are experiencing any shoulder problems these workouts, stretches, a mobility drills are all something you should try out. The warm ups and stretches I’ll be showing in my next video is something I recommend you start doing to prevent weak points in your rotator cuff which will ultimately help reduce your risk or injury. I’ve also been thinking about writing an e-book that would provide all these workouts and information, so if that’s something you’d be interested in please comment below. Lets get into today’s lower body workout and remember I structured this workout to work around my shoulder pain BUT even if you’re pain free I encourage you to give this workout a try. It’s got a great amount of volume, variety, and intensity. Let’s do it. Brick by brick baby.
