    Apparently I sprained my shoulder yesterday and it was worse today.

    Yoga is easier if you pretend you're an amputee, I've learned.

    Finished my Core Synergistics workout. It's really hard for me to explain this one, as I've seen maybe 2 of these exercises before. There were a handful of pushup variations, plus bananas, boats, bridges, tables, supermans, rolls, and yoga-esque stuff.

    Pretty much every exercise tired me out on a very fundamental level. Which means it's a good thing I get to do this one more time this week.

    I remembered having the same problem, so I looked in the back log and saw that I was complaining about the exact same thing about a month ago. I think either my shoulders find yoga too disagreeable or I'm doing something wrong.

    I think yoga blocks are supposed to help with your shoulders? I don't know.

    The blocks, as far as I know, are generally for certain stretches. They add stability and allow you to open up your chest and whatnot. They aren't going to help with the downward dogs, planks, and other wonderful poses that really stress the shoulder. (That I know of! I'm hardly an expert.)

    However, I suspect the video you guys are having to do is hardly beginner level, either. Because of the combination of strength and flexibility required to do advanced moves properly, I suspect you can injure yourself really quickly by pushing yourself too hard. There's a few positions in the Yoga X video that I would risk serious injury (like neck injury) if I were to attempt right now.

    I don't know. I saw an article on it that I'm trying to find now on using yoga blocks for those kind of poses to prevent shoulder injury but now I can't find them. Maybe I made them up.

    It may also be that I'm probably bearing about 50 extra pounds on that shoulder than most people and that shoulder is really not a weight-bearing joint. Maybe my left is fine considering left is my leaning preference, but not my right.

    Overtime you'll strengthen that shoulder. When your muscles become stronger, you'll be able to use them to stabilize the joint. This is the importance of beginner level workouts. You strengthen the shoulder so you can do the harder stuff.

    Finally got back into it today but hurt my back last week so it was pretty touchy and I'm a tad concerned about how my boxing class will go tomorrow =/

    Any exercises you know I can do without putting my whole body weight on it?

    I've been walking a bit this week. I also did a 30 minutes ab work on Tuesday and I did an upper body workout today.
