  • Appreciate that shit

    This is real light rehab training for me now.

    As far as overtraining, this is very low volume to what I was doing before.

    Might need to get my wrists sliced though. Going to get another nerve scan soon.

    Surgery might release the pressure in my hands. Worth a try

          Yes, I know how to put the size on. I was close to 230 a few months ago. Just some setbacks. Main thing now is training around these injuries. The only thing holding me back at the moment

              Maybe one day I will allow myself to lower the volume, for the sake of my joints. Always have that obsession that Ive never done enough abuse. Plus I train mostly for the vent, the adrenaline high. Hate to go back to fucking reality

              • 9-10-11 Saturday Legs,calves,hamstrings

                Knees still beat up. Light today but still alot of strain with the 800 lb sets. Decided to wrap my knees , which I never do, on the 800 lb sets which seemed to take some pressure off. After the session though knees were tore up more like usual.:

                (205 lbs after meal)

                Leg Press:

                180x50 warm

                600x60 warm
                700x70
                800x50 (wrapped knees from this point on)
                800x46
                80x30 (Cut it short because of knees)

                Seated Calf Extention:

                200x50
                200x50

                200-220x40
                200x40
                200x30

                Seated Leg Curl: (hamstrings still tight as hell, so light)

                100x15 warm
                130x15 warm
                160x11

                • 9-12-11 Monday Trained Chest,shoulders,traps,biceps and triceps.


                  (205 lbs after 2 meals)


                  Got another nerve scan done today. To see whats causing numbness in hands. All three main
                  nerves that run to the hands came up fine. No nerve damage according to the doctors. Doc says
                  it may be nerve irritation but nothing serious yet. Well see how it progresses over time.

                  Next thing I will look into is my elbows. Maybe get them scanned in more detail. The xrays
                  showed some small bone spurs. Elbows are whats giving me the most issues at the moment.
                  I decided to hit triceps and a few sets of chest presses anyway but backed off on weight and
                  volume. To see how it feels.

                  Also condensed the split. All muscle groups involving the elbows I trained today. To give more
                  days recovery for elbows. Except back. Ill do that 2 or 3 days later.

                  Light rehab/bodybuilding style shit for now.

                  Giving elbows a break still. Inner triceps feel like they are cramping up. Maybe a tear. WIll
                  have to get elbows scanned soon and see

                  Alot of techniques applied here to work around injuries. Pre exhaustion, supersets, dropsets,
                  order of movements to warm up joints, less rest between most sets, slower reps, holding peak
                  contractions and striving for the pump and blood rush over throwing around weight. Very
                  different style from usual.

                  • 9-16-11 Friday Trained back, shoulders and traps.




                    (205 lbs after meal)

                    More moderate weight training. Trying to resist the temptation to train heavy. Though slowly
                    inching the weights up weekly so have to keep an eye on the shit and not get carried away for
                    the sake of my joints.

                    Elbows felt fine for most of the session though. Just a little soreness towards the end:

                    (No straps used as usual)

                    Lat Pulldowns: (Bar held at chin level for several seconds unless otherwise noted)

                    165x25 warm

                    270x9 (same. Decided to stop here with increasing the weights.)

                        Appreciate that shit


                        Trying to do what I can get away with. Right now elbows are on fire. Up into the triceps. Will look into it and see whats going on. I only need a few days training a week to grow. So just need to see what I can get away with and work around the shit for now

                          Also hit a high of 224 lbs recently , fully fed. Which puts me at 225-226 at the old gym I was training at in 2009. At that time I was 208 with the same waist measurement. So despite all these injuries and lay offs progress is still moving forward............"

                                Naproxen at 880 mgs a day seems to be helping with the pain atleast. Dont feel much strain at
                                all, even knees feel better. Still dont trust it though. So Im keeping the weight moderate and
                                volume as well.:
