Doing deads today; Shoulder update; New addition to recipe section.

My legs feel like they’ve fully recovered from Monday’s workout, so today I’m going to add deadlifts to my back workout. I’ll probably do a few lighter warm-up sets, and then a few moderately heavy sets in the 10-rep range, and then a couple of very heavy sets.

I received an email yesterday asking how my shoulder is holding up so far on this bulk. I guess the reason I’ve not said much about my shoulder is because there is, happily, absolutely nothing to report! I haven’t felt even the slightest twinge of shoulder pain thus far, and I’m very thankful for that. I think there are several reasons my shoulder is doing better these days. First of all, I’ve learned what activities bother my shoulder: stuff like washing the car, hard scrubbing and push-ups seem to bother my right shoulder far more than heavy weight training. Knowing these things, I no longer do push-ups, and when I wash the car and clean I make an effort to use lighter pressure and favor my left arm. Also, over the past few years I’ve continued to do rotator cuff strengthening exercises, and I think that’s helped. While I know my shoulder is still not “right”, I feel like I’ve figured out how to live and train with it. One day I may need surgery, but unless I really injure the shoulder again that’s not going to happen.

I have been receiving so much positive feedback on my 2008 bulking diet photographic tour that I’ve decided to add a link to the recipe section. While not strictly a list of recipes, I think it fits well in that section. I’m so glad that some of you found the article helpful!

I’d better wrap up here and get to work. I hope you have a great day. 🙂
