If I wake up one morning and nothing hurts or is sore, I'm going to question whether I'm still alive or not.
You need to get this looked into. It's quite often a lack of t-spine mobility, and an FMS is a great way to approach it. As a general guideline, tackle mobility first.One issue that may be related is my lack of ability to completely straighten my arms (either one) to the point that my forearm and upper arm are in line. Consequently, I think I have to use muscle strength to keep my arms straight during a get-up; maybe the tension in the upper arm affects the shoulders, which causes the soreness in the traps (the trap soreness is mainly in my left side, and my left arm is weaker, too--maybe there's a correlation). So complicated, this stuff.
Thank you for the advice! The pain went away after another day of resting and I returned to training. However, if I ever feel that way again I’ll remember ur advice and take the rest I need from now on. Thanks again.@Arash Mohammady, I would take a break of at least 3 days and up to two weeks from all vigorous training. Walk, swim, take a hot shower, go to the sauna, get a massage, stretch. Offhand I'd say most people will benefit from such a break at least a few times per year, but it's certainly worth doing now based on what you've said. Allow yourself to recover completely, then ease back into your training.
