It’s been years since my bum shoulder has given me any serious trouble, but my right shoulder has been protesting a bit lately. I know the pain I’m currently experiencing is a direct result of the stresses I’ve been placing on the shoulder while mountain biking; more specifically, bunny hopping. Today I’ll be training chest and triceps, and benching along with weighted chest dips are two exercises that definitely put my shoulder health to the test. It will be interesting to see how it holds up. I’ll be honest, I’m not going to stop riding, even if it affects my ability to bench. I’ll just have to figure out a way to work around it.

This week I’ll be working on getting my upcoming cutting diet and training program worked up and posted. Actually, most of it is already done, as I’ll be using a slightly modified Mastover-designed cutting program that was created for me when I was at a similar weight and body fat percentage. I may modify the training split so I’m only weight training 3 days per week because I want to leave a few days open so I can do cardio as much as 3 days per week (and still have one day of complete rest). My hope is that the majority of my cardio will be performed outside on my bike, but practically speaking some of it will likely be in the gym.

If you are gearing up for a fat loss program to start the new year, don’t put off the planning stage until the last minute. I suggest that you post your diet and training plans on the forums and ask for comments and suggestions. If you are not sure about something, just start a post and ask away. I know it can seem overwhelming when you’re new to healthy, sustainable fat loss/dieting. Don’t worry, JSF is a friendly community and we’re here to help you reach your goals!
