Coming Back From A Pec Injury

Suzanne —  January 12, 2014 — 1 Comment

Amy asked the question, “I have strained my pec benching and I’m just wondering how you will transition back to lifting with the strain on your pecs?”

Before my surgery, it never occurred to me how much we use our chest in basic movements (opening a medicine bottle, reaching for a glass in the cabinet, opening the dryer) until I could no longer do these simple tasks. My surgery has definitely been a eye opener and I admit to having some anxiety about how I will begin to train in the coming weeks. Fortunately, I have a coach that has helped other women come back from this “injury” so I know I’m in good hands. For Amy and those who need some advice, Jim has provided some tips in the video link below:

I look forward to benching again after giving myself the time I need to heal and rehab.

  1. Thank you so much for the video. I have been taking it really easy on the pec and will now add in a lot more upper back work. To quote Kelly Starrett, I have “douchie shoulders” from working at a desk all day for years. Thanks again and I will let you know how it goes.
