Focus on healing, always focus on healing.

I broke both my wristts and took 2 or 3 years off lifting. When you go back it might take a week or two depending on how much time you took off and how little exercise/work you did during the time off, but you will be just as strong or stronger after healing and getting back into your routine.

Thanks for the reply. I've had the shoulder pain for at least 6 or 7 months. This is just what i needed to hear.

If you're a natural lifter for at least 2 years consistently, one month won't do shit to your gains or strength. When you start benching again, try reverse grip in a power rack with safety bars (never on a bench without safety bars or it will slip and you will die). Jeff Cavaliere made a video about reverse grip benching for people with shoulder injuries, you should check it out.

I've been doing 5x5 then madcow consistently for about 1 year. I was doing body weight, cardio, and kettlebell for a year and half before that. Thank you for your reply. I feel a bit better about taking that time off now.
