So I was “lucky” enough to find out a couple of months ago that I have a type 3 hooked acromion.  It’s basically a fancy term that says whenever I raise my arms above my head, a bone digs into the tendons and bursa and can lead to rotator cuff tears and other issues.

Acromial-Types

I received an injection of steroids to help it and it has for a while, but it hasn’t completely stopped the issues, especially when I am using weights and doing things like lateral raises or front raises.  Even sleeping on my side (cuz I do) sometimes causes pain.  There is a surgical option but I am not sure if I am ready to do that just yet.  If it gets to the point where it is as bad as it was before I got the injection, I might take up that offer.

However, that isn’t going to stop me from trying to workout as best as I can.  Today was upper chest and shoulder day (which is just another way of say lower shoulders and shoulders as far as I am concerned).  I won’t lie… I couldn’t finish.  I haven’t tried my circuit training routine in this format before this week.  I used to always do full body every time.  And maybe this is why.  By the 3rd round out of 10, I could barely lift my arms because they were so worn out.  I was actually only able to finish 5 of the 10 rounds.
