Day 21 of Insanity, with legs.

Weight still holding. I guess post-Thanksgiving that's better than average..

Well he didn't say the trainer told him to use the same weight. Might have been just a brain fart.

49 fast cruising elliptical minutes, 14 hill interval treadmill level 10 minutes.

3 sets of 10 on 5 iterations for legs. tougher than anticipated because it had been a week but didn't have to drop any weight on any of the machines. squeaked out all the reps.

3 sets of 10 back extension; 2 sets each side standing oblique cable pulls. decided against the third set today.

still have today's allotment of squats pliƩs bridges and crunches.

re: destroying a shoulder on dumbbells (free weights) at same level as on machines---i hope you never used that trainer again. any trainer, heck, anyone who lifts even half seriously--knows that using the same weight in free weights (dumbbells or barbells) as on a machine, without first testing with a spotter, is dangerous. all weights (machine vs dumbbell vs cables vs barbells vs smith, etc) are NOT created equal, and your trainer *ought* to have started you off with something lighter to demo the movement first, working you up to your free weight max weight, rather than *starting* you at your high machine weight. that kind of irresponsible training should be reported. sorry you got hurt.

and SB: wait for the MRI and doctor's advice.

I use cables too for the same reason and still use the bench/dumbbells with lighter weights. I also have a heavy dumbbell routine for arms and chest that I perform for about five minutes no rest and no putting down the weights. It's just pure fun!

Now I mainly use cables, that way I can go heavy with far less chance of injury.

A blown shoulder usually take about a year if they heal naturally, less time if you fix them surgically. A couple years back I hurt my right shoulder. I was really strong and ran into a "trainer" that emphasized using dumbbells "for a more complete workout", especially "inclined dumbbells". I took my usual flat bench weight of 90 lbs. ea. and did them at 45 degrees, felt the pull and tear, took me a year to heal.

"What do u guys suggest to keep moving with a blown shoulder?" No way! Wait for the MRI results."

Agree, wait for the MRI and I hope it's not the rotator cuff. (tearing the connecting tissues and tendons to the shoulder joint are serious)... whatever it is, be sure you don't rush it back to working out. Give it time. Good luck
