Shoulder hurt like hell today in the weightroom. Did not affect performance, however. Warmed up on the speed bag and the punching bag. Had my fastest speed bag session yet; the thing was blazing, with no slowing down when I switched hands. My arms gas out on that thing because I have to hit it hard to keep it bouncing fast. There's probably a better way. Also lowered the weights on speedbench. Supposed to use 45% of ORM, and I was using 185. I lowered it to 145, figuring that my bench max is more or less 290 right now.
Cardio was mixed. I did (consecutively)
five rounds of jump-rope.
forty roundhouses on the heavy bag for each leg (shins hurt like hell).
Three mixed rounds on the heavy bag, 4 oz gloves (would have done more but didn't want to over-exert stress on my shoulder, although it felt much better at this point).
Numerous laps in the swimming pool.
Shoulder feels completely fine now. I have an idea that it's because of how I sleep. I usually lay on my side with my body resting on my arm. I never really thought much of it, but I should probably stop doing that now that I weigh so much more. We'll see if that makes any difference. I'm basically trying to test out all these theories so that I can pinpoint the problem.
