Also, this was my first week going hard again in the gym after a deload week. I think I went a little too hard, as I'm still getting used to the feel of strategically adding a calculated amount of volume each week. I think I should have eased into the week rather than gone balls to the wall on the first day back like I did. Noted for next time. I messed up my mid-trap area somehow deadlifting a lot of volume, so much so that it hurts to breathe in deep. Pretty much anything upper body hurts right now, but I can do lower body lifts that don't involve my arms/shoulders. Basically I've been doing a lot of squats and isolation hamstring accessory work. I also added a few 30-45 minute cardio sessions. It's nothing crazy, and I'm sure in the week or so that I cut back a little on lifting to recover from my injury, my body won't become dependent on that little amount of cardio.
After about four days, I already feel a lot better. I'm hoping it will heal up completely in the next week or so, but I'm going to be super careful.
On an unrelated note, I was so overwhelmed with the response from the IIFYM Fast Food Master List post I made yesterday! I'm currently working on adding a few more restaurants to the list as well as another list (even bigger) with all the chain restaurants (like Olive Garden, Carabbas, Chilis, etc.). It's going to be huge. So stay tuned my friends!
