This was so important for my recovery. I decided that it was time to start training all grips Iron X again and I mean really training on a consistent schedule. I don't do 18 reps every time I train the Iron X because sometimes I do it in shoes and there is just no way. Without shoes in the beginning of each session when it's like 1! 17 to go! I have no idea how I'm going to get through all the reps. It's been good for me to power through.
The reason it's 18 is because there are three different grips, straight, cup and twisted, 3 reps for each grip on both sides. The first session back it was so scary I had to use the crash mat for the twisted and cup grip.
But my shoulder. It's almost like before X and after X. Before I started working on this again my shoulder would randomly scream at me and I knew I was over-compensating still from the 2018 car accident and partial rotator cuff injury but I thought I needed to go back to the rehab exercises and start them up at least 2/week but I was wrong. The effect was instant. I could sleep on my right side again. My shoulder no longer randomly yelled about something I did in my pole session (that took me hours to comb through the video to find the culprit).
Truly the only reason to watch this video all the way through is to see that I really did get all 18 reps in.
I have been working on getting better at moves for tutorials. If you both read this blog and subscribe to me on youtube you may already know I'm working on building the strength to get back to the strength I was before the car accident. I intend to shoot these tutorials as I am strong enough to do so. Stay tuned and feel free to request tutorials or text 410 868 7957 for information on private lessons.
