    I took 20 days off lifting (unintentional) whilst jacked on caffeine and cortisol and came back bench-pressing 10kg more on the first day than before.
    Just eat well, you'll live.

    From my dad's (guitarist), my fiance's and my own experience: calluses grow back faster once you've already had them. Yes, they'll crack and peel off and you'll feel gay for 4 weeks. But take solace in the thought that when you re-start they'll come back in a week.

    which begs the question...which of us is spelling it wrong...?

    Thanks though, that is awesome. In the meantime though, still

    Callous: a person who's cold, insensitive, harsh. Callus: tough skin from repeat abrasion.

    Try getting into woodwork. You can build a few new calluses, get some saw-scars and feel manly by making something cool and functional and learning a trade.

    Which raises the question: Do you know that's not what "begs the question" actually means? I didn't until recently.

    personally, i'd make sure to take a good long walk every day (at least an hour) and maybe even try riding a bike. you need to let the tear heal or it will nag you forever, so don't try anything crazy, anything with twisting, or anything with your arms over your head. maybe even dial down the calorie intake slightly until you resume the lifting.

    Can't you just do some lower body stuff for a while?

    nah it's low on my left side- if I raise my knee above a 90 degree bend in my knee, it stresses and hurts it. If I put anything on my shoulders for any kind of squat, also painful. It's really an inconvenient snag. I will be back at the gym tomorrow though with the wife- she signed up this week and we are building her a better a butt.

    Hey, I feel your pain: I'm about 3-1/2 weeks into physical therapy for a shoulder impingement (supraspinatus muscle, in this case). Haven't been able to lift at ALL since I started treatment. Allegedly, I'm going to get released after next Thursday if I show sufficient improvement.
