    i was at the doctor the other week for a phsysical, and while i was there i asked him about a sharp pain i get sometimes when i lift in my shoulder.... he told me it was tendonitis and that i need to take a break and let it heal. also, recently it feels like the bones in my forearm area are really bothering me. any idea what that might be?

    i guess what i was just wondering is if you guys ever take a week off after every few months of lifting. i hate skipping even one day, so missing an entire week isnt going to be much fun. can i expect to lose any weight on my lifts?

    Well just take this break to work on your abs and legs. Could also do some easy cardio (dunno 'bout you, but running > 4 mph and I feel it in my shoulders a bit). That way you don't have to take a complete break, but you're resting what needs a rest. :dunno:
