    Torn torso

    I've been altering my routine, Tuesday night did:
    4 sets pulldowns, (the stack)
    3 sets seated rows, (the stack)
    3 sets dumbell rows, (115 lbs)
    all sets to absolute concentric failure then a 10 second 'hold rep'
    5 sets super heavy shrugs

    all movements done with extra 15 - 20% weight above normal.
    Most of you will find this a statement of the obvious but:
    48 hours later my entire torso felt 'torn' and painful, not that "pleasent" soreness you normally associate with a good workout but real pain shooting everywhere, lasted around 3 days.
    The moral: Dont increase weight on an altered routine, dont believe everything you read, eg. 'hold reps', and dont be seduced by the seductress of excessive training.
