Good morning LWL!

Thanks for the advice Meg and Mel - saw our site doctor today and he says that although my bicep tendon seems to be a bit tender, the shoulder pain appears to just be muscular - my range of motion is good and nothing that would indicate tendon or ligament damage. He's suggested a couple weeks of rest, and then resuming workouts with much lower weights than before, and not working to failure for a while.

I don't do barbell bench presses - I do use dumbbells and try to make sure my shoulder blades are tucked in so as to minimize shoulder participation. I'll be careful doing chest on Friday and will stop if I feel anything in that shoulder. Not fun, but I don't want to hurt myself any further.

Tiki - congrats on hitting those weights!

Hope everyone is having a great Tuesday!
Cindy
