    Stewart I have been doing a lot of hard efforts with paddles lately and have been experiencing some neck muscle pain myself. It's not muscle damage but more major muscle fatigue if anything. It is mostly in neck area behind head at base of my skull extending down to my shoulders. I have also been doing some upright rows and can feel it when I add weight. My guess is its related to the 100's pull set you did yesterday.

    i think you are right. I woke this morning (Thursday) and my neck felt much better. I am flying back to Dallas this morning so will practice tonight and fingers crossed I will be back to normal both neck and energy levels.

    I go as hard as I can and wonder a day later why I am not feeling great. I keep forgetting I am not a kid anymore. The older I get the longer it takes to recover! Sad but true.
