    Oh how easily thou art shattered.

    At 8 PM this evening I was finishing watching this weeks True Blood while packing my bag for the gym.

    I now sit at my laptop at 3 AM, 4 X-Rays, 10 units of sedative, 1 cannister of nitrous oxide and 1 dislocated shoulder later.

    Not listening to your body = Poor form = Poor results

    Lesson fucking learnt.

    Overhead press, 20 kg in each hand, not a crazy weight for me or anything. I think maybe Ive been pushing a little hard all week though and not letting myself rest properly.

    I pushed up once, my arm spazzed a bit and I put the weight down. Then stupidly I tried again and my arm totally jolted and just fell out of the socket and the weight dragged my arm and my body down to the floor. Ugh. Ugh. Ugh.

    I would be more sympathetic, but this is how we learn (like my herniated disks last year).

    Once you recover, you'll do even better. icon_biggrin.gif

    mmm that's how I f*cked up my shoulder as well, not paying attention to my body!
    Although I didn't get the warning signs although I probably would have ignored them considering the state I was in at the time when it happened haha
