The origin of this topic took place during a very interesting event. Last month, I participated in the ‘strength & stamina challenge’ in my local gymnasium. One of the challenges was to hold off a 2-minute standard plank. Please note that this was preceded by tuck crunches, squats & deadlifts.(yes, ouch!).
While I was in the midst of that time-bound challenge, I discovered something. My shoulder joint and shoulder girdle muscles were struggling, fighting and firing more that the target muscles (core, pelvis,lumbar spine), because of which I couldn’t complete the 2-minute challenge. I had to give up because my shoulder, scapular and upper back muscles got over fired with lactic acid. I also ended up in some pain around my Lats, Traps &interscapular region. And I could feel that is was weakness-induced pain.
