Weirdest thing happened tonight while at the gym. I was in my second set of incline dumbbell presses and feeling great but on my 6th rep my right arm literally just stopped working. Full on paralyzed to where I dropped the dumbbell. Absolutely no pain, no residual effects, no numbness, nothing afterwards that indicates any sort of injury. Lasted for about 10 seconds and feeling came back. Feels fine and I was able to continue on with my workout no problem. Has anyone else ever experienced this? As you get older I start becoming more conscious of possible underlying issues that could cause it but I’m at a total loss. Just more so wondering if anyone has had this happen themselves or heard of it and what could be the cause? Any insight is appreciated.
