Staying strong through shoulder injury?

i just started the power phase of the RCTM and while warming up, reached for a hold and tweaked my shoulder. Hurts to raise it over my head. Has anyone experienced this? How long am I looking before I can climb again?

More importantly, I'm leaving in a month in a 2-month road trip and was excited because I was feeling stronger than ever already. How can I maintain my strength as I heal? After I get better should I jump right back into power or should I do another mini strength phase?

Yes, go see a PT. The shoulder is complex, and you might need to back off for a while depending on the diagnosis. How to restart your training will depend on how long you're away from it.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
