I wasted too much time in an often heated discussion (described somewhat in my previous post). It turns out that I waded into a grievance festival but there were some, ok, several, who engaged me in a thoughtful, respectful way.
Others just wanted to yell.
One said this was me…and…well..I did see myself in the sea lion.
If I decide to comment on such a thread again, I’ll ask a question: why do you find this objectionable when this similar word is in common use?
Or I’ll seek out and find better people to follow.
What I did learn, or relearn, is that priors matter. I live in a community that values athletic achievement and YOU BEAST is high praise and is often extended when one makes a big lift, runs a fast time, etc. I also follow women’s sports and yes, even the women lifters like praise when they’ve made a big lift.
Now about my “beast mode” (LOL) workout.
I started too late but did pull ups (4 sets of 10, 2 sets of 5 chins), 3 sets of 20 push ups with better range of motion, 3 sets of curls and 3 sets of rows. It wasn’t too bad and I actually did better on the pull ups.
Then came the PT and that was encouraging (new “hot spot” on the glute medius) and some very humbling exercises; including one I can’t do properly (I have to “cheat” by rotating my body.
New (to me) Rehab:
Perturbation training (with me: applied to spinal balance)
These were cool too:
I cannot do these properly as yet:
At the end, she shows what I am doing wrong.
Update: NO SHOULDER PAIN last night!
