    Haven't tried much of anything beyond ibuprofen and avoiding shit that makes it hurt because I don't have a satisfactory diagnosis that explains my symptoms. I have pain primarily near/under the scapula (hard to pinpoint and sometimes it radiates) and also near my SC joint. The two seem to be related. I've been to a chiropractor and a orthopedic shoulder specialist and had shoulder x-ray and shoulder MRI. Chiro thinks it's a first rib issue but after several appointments wasn't able to provide any relief. Ortho diagnosed SC joint sprain and scapular bursitis on initial visit and offered cortisone shot (no thanks). Bursitis never made any sense to me and subsequent MRI didn't show bursitis but I do have some (minor?) labral tearing and paralabral cysts, which I still think don't really explain my symptoms either. At this point I'm leaning toward a neurological issue, whether cervical spine, thoracic outlet, or something else, but not sure who to see next. Given that imaging hasn't shown any major structural defects or tears I'm not eager to waste a bunch more time with useless doctors visits.

    As for modification, the pain mostly started after a set of rack pulls two months ago and it was exacerbated by deadlifts so I avoided those for a while. Bench has always felt like shit and it seems to stress the SC joint so I've taken a break from those as well. Perhaps some mild reduction in pain at this point or maybe I'm just getting used to it. I've started working deadlifts back in and will probably try some benching soon too.

    I screwed up my shoulder/biceps tendon in march 2022 and it took about 6 months to get better, and actually about a year before it was completely un noticeable. I also rejected the cortizone shot. this shit will heal eventually. good job with 405 man

    Light Squat 325x5x2
    Press Singles at 185, 205, 215, 220x5
    Deadlift 425x5x1

    Press felt really strong today, which was a nice surprise after the trouble I had with 185 on Monday. Warm-ups and first 4 singles at 220 went up smooth and fast. Had a couple 5 second grinds and misses toward the end--they are brutally fatiguing. I set out to do 7 singles at 220 but called it a day after my third miss.

    My shoulder was sore for about 3-4 days after last week's deadlifts.Today felt pretty good and I think I matched my 5-rep PR. Expect I'll feel it tomorrow though.

    Glancing through the log I didnít see any mentions of hanging or chins. Do you throw those in ever?

    Glad to hear youíre back to deadlifting and managing the soreness. Nice work on the presses as well! Before my time off, I was doing 10x1 in a range and made my way to 215. Man, those 5 second grinds hit different but Iím not sure if those were worse than the heavy 5x5 volume dayÖ
