Default Scared to do pad work

Hey guys. I did boxing for a few months but had to stop because I dislocated my shoulder. I've dislocated both many times and I'm seeing a specialist / waiting on MRI results ATM. But anyway I Realy Realy want to get back to training but I know that if someone lands a good hook on pad work there is a good chance I will **** it up bad. I Realy just want to go in and do some sparing. Anyway how would you deal with this? I'm wondering about just not doing pad work, but it's a major part of training most sessions and I don't want to be 'that guy' who dose his own thing because he's better than everyone else

Nope. Hell no. I don't mean to trash anyone and their opinion but it's better to not continue the pad work.

I recently tore(partially) my rotor cuff. Which is a pretty complex muscle that stabilizes your shoulder. As much as i wanted to put in work, I knew from previous injuries that you just have to wait till it heals.

So, wait to hear from your doc. You will most likely have to rest it up, regardless of how bad it is. Judging from the injury, your rehab will most likely be static strengthening(ie: pushing against an immovable object). Rest, rehab. Then go after it again.

Dislocations are easy to handle if it didn't tear anything, spur a bone, or something. It's painful but rehab is relatively short. 2-3 weeks I believe. As long as it is done diligently.

I would lay off until u feel right, and one thing i see a lot of guys not do is stretch, they go in grab a rope then after that start throwing punches via pad or bag , no stretching at all was involved, and believe it or not that plays a major factor on throwing out your limbs.....

your arms aren't made naturally to be thrown that way thats why they hang low , so stretch as much as possible also when u return , but it kills me to watch these guys in the gym just come in warm up on the rope then start throwing crazy amounts of punches from all angles, then next thing u know they get hurt.....stretching is a huge part in almost every sport.

thanks guys. it was over a month ago i did it and they both feel stable now. but its a recuring problem so i know that no matter how stable i feel it could happen again. im going to the docs to see why it keeps happening. i broke both collar bones and have lax ligaments so thats probably why. it might be a surgery job.

im fine throwing punches (if a bit wary of throwing wild hooks and haymakers still), its receiving them on pad work. people tend to get carried away and throw them a bit hard and i know im just one good shot away from being out of action for another month.
