    Hey guys, so I’ve been running PPL2.0 for quite a while and have been happily sitting in the 0 RIR range for a bit. All that is great…BUT…

    I have a trapped nerve in my back. It’s causing front delt pain when I bench press and occasionally gives me a numb left hand (The Stranger!). Anyway, I have a visit to an orthopedist coming up Friday and I anticipate that they will say scale back training. So my question (which I am asking here since the doc probably isn’t familiar with training) is what is smarter/safer in that instance? Lifting in a 6-8 RIR range or would it make sense to drop weight, up reps and with that take it to 0 RIR. Basically I am asking systemically should I recover better from one than the other? Of course ultimately I will discuss with the doc but any thoughts to it to aid in the discussion would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Thanks Joe, that makes sense now that you say it. I will get back after my appointment.
