Slow recovery

Well its been 3 weeks since I've been able to bench, shoulder is recovering slowly... very slowly...  frustratingly slowly!

Ultrasound showed some joint effusion which a cortisone shot wasn't going to help, so I've been relying on Naprosyn  on and off for the past few weeks and just not benching or doing any upper back training. On top of all this I've been sick, Fever, tonsillitis and now a head cold.

This has put quite a dint in my 5/3/1/ training, I've only been able to do squats and deads. And even the squats I'm confined to the SS bar.  This week is the deload  so come Saturday I'll put in some very light bench,  board presses and dumbell rows and see how the shoulder copes.  Hopefully I can start the next 5/3/1/ cycle including bench although I may still hold back on the military press.
