I dislocated my shoulder last night in my basketball game and although it popped right back into place, it is extremely sore today. This has never happened to me before, but when you get injured, you have two choices, to use it as an excuse for a break or work through it smartly. I choose the latter. I always tell my athletes that even if they have an injured limb, we are still going to train the healthy side. The way the central nervous works is crazy! If I continue to work the right side (non-injured), then some of the those strength gains will transfer over to the injured side, meaning there won’t be much muscle loss and much if any of a strength decline. I will still train the lower body just as hard, but the pushing and pulling movements will be done with a dumbell on the good side only. I will rehab my shoulder by strengthening the rotator cuff and surrounding musculature. I have already begun watching Eric Cressey’s (one of the top shoulder experts in the world) DVD this morning. I will be sure to keep you posted.
