I had a motorcycle accident about 6 years ago. No real bad injuries... but ever since then I have occasional muscle spasms in my rhomboids, upper and middle traps and infraspinatus. When I got up out of bed this morning I felt my rhomboids and infraspinatus wind up in spasm. Very annoying and painful. Damn it all to hell.
I went to yoga in hopes of a release. Lisa always asks for requests... I asked for upper thoracic releasing postures. Yoga was helpful, but I am still in spasm. I worked some Z drills... elbow circle, glides, and cam shafts. Relief, but still bugging me. I have a low tolerance for long term (more than a couple minutes) of pain. Stick presses, nope. Damn it to hell.
Aaron's brother came over for some KB lesson today! Way cool! Aaron's brother is an accomplished powerlifter and I am thrilled to have an opportunity to discuss weight training with such a pro! He has a standing record in North Dakota in the Bench Press.
I did a few presses, swings, cleans and snatches in an attempt to work out the spasm (it's still there) as well as to demonstrate KBs. Well, I think I have successfully persuaded another Friday! He wants his own KB and is asking about classes! Cool! Two down and two to go (mom and dad)!
Well, I am going to cry about my shoulder some more. I am a big cry baby!
