22 years old, 5'10, 203 lbs (weighed in AM)

Goals & Focus:

190 lbs by May
Increase right shoulder ROM
Increase shoulder strength and muscle mass
Strengthen lower back


14 months out of right shoulder surgery - tore the ligament, the surgery tightened me up much more than normal shoulder surgeries since it was so messed up. As a result, I rehabbed for a long time (6+ months) and I still am about 20 degrees off of full ROM. Also as a result of my torn ligament, I had some cartillage wear in my socket, and have a bit of arthiritis in the shoulder, making some lifts and activities difficult, though not impossible.

I've been lifting since I was 16, the original motivation was to end my fat assedness. I was 215 at age 17 with little lean mass. I dropped down to 175 with diet and exercise, and increased up to 190 where I felt and looked my best and most well balanced (measured at 13% bf). I would love to get back to 190 again. I don't enjoy doing straight cardio like jogging, I prefer to play full court basketball. I usually play 3-4 times a week, 3-4 games every time out.

My lifting schedule may not be consistant due to my school and work schedule, but I will make every effort to make up lost workouts and to reschedule accordingly. I will also try to post my diet on here as often as possible (as time permits).

Here it goes...

Very pansy indeed. Oh well. Swallow the ego and overcome months of laziness.

Shoulders

Warmup: 5mins on erg

DB Shoulder Press
40x10, 40x10, 30x9, 30x8

DB Side Raise
3x12 @ 15lbs

DB Forward Raise
3x12 @ 15lbs

DB Rear Delt Raise
3x10 @ 10lbs

Cardio
12 mins elliptical (probably 7/10 intensity)
12 mins erg (~8/10 intensity), 2125 meters -- first time erging, ever

Overall, pretty good workout. I have to get my shoulders nice and strong so I don't have lifelong bull**** to deal with. I still have limited range of motion, I'd say I have about 70% or so range in my right shoulder (surgically repaired one), and full range in the left one, although it is slight loose and I would like to tighten it up by strengthening surrounding muscles.

Probably hit cardio up tomorrow, maybe a few miles on the treadmill, and if I'm up for it, another 15 or so minutes on the erg.

No workout today. 12 hours at work, had me running around all day. 3 days in the gym in a row is enough for me right now anyways. I had a solid diet again today. Tomorrow will be Back/Biceps, I may try to hit some cardio if I'm not gassed.

Cardio

After 11 hours at work (physical job - move patients on stretchers from one end of a huge hospital to another, all day)

5K race on treadmill, 3.25 miles, average 8:49/mile - pretty crappy, but my cardiovascular is definitely not so hot. My goal is to have it under 8:00/mile by September-doable I believe.

Overall update, I feel great and am starting to notice my body transforming into my old old self again, as well my strength regaining old form. Muscle memory :thumbup: My diet has been relatively stellar for 2 weeks now. I keep myself sane by dieting relatively strictly Mon-Fri, and not thinking twice about partying on Saturday. Empty calories, true, but whatever. I have the rest of my life to worry about that ****.

Here's a couple of old pics-

Got to the gym, on a mission today. Drunken stop by Steak n Shake, pissed at myself all day for doing that. Paid for it on deadlifts.

Pretty decent day I suppose. Kind of dehydrated from drinking last night and not drinking much water today. But overall, it was a fair workout considering the circumstances. I did the workout in about 40 minutes, so pretty good time in between sets. Worked up a great sweat. Anyhow, I feel great on deadlifts, even though my lower back where I previously tore the muscle is now getting stiff (fairly normal when I do heavier deads...really sucks)--but oh well. I actually felt real strong on the 225lb deads, but for some reason I let go of the bar when I got down on rep 4 - for no reason! Pissed myself off.

good volume man, hows the shoulder holding up????



why dont you pair those two with your chest days?

311
07-16-2006, 01:20 PM
I've never really had much luck doing Chest / Triceps on the same day, I feel like both (chest and tris) negatively affect eachother in the workout. Plus, I don't mind having them separate, since I'm in the gym shorter.

I love doing high reps, and I guess my muscle memory is kicking in, because I'm slowly approaching old numbers.

My shoulders, knock on wood, are okay right now. There are obviously some rough days, and some days make me swallow some Advil (I avoid painkillers as much as possible, so it's bad when I reach for them). But on the whole, I think just fighting through the pain in the gym is worth it in the long run. I need to add muscle and strength to my shoulder to help protect and pad it, so this is a necessary step. My dad was actually asking the same thing last night, that's exactly what I told him. Really, my biggest beef with my right shoulder is the range of motion. I am still about 20 degrees off of full range, I've been stuck at 20 for a year now. Kind of sucks. Oh well.

No gym today. My back has been atrocious since leg day. Probably ****ty form on the heavier sets. I'll cut back next week on legs and focus more form and explosiveness.

Tomorrow's back day. If my back still sucks, I'll do shoulders/tris.

Damn, I didn't get to the gym at all this weekend. I had no time today, but no excuses for Saturday. This week's plan:

Mon - Back
Tues - Chest/Bis + Cardio
Weds - Cardio
Thurs - Legs
Fri - Shoulders/Tris
Sat - Cardio
Sun - Back
Mon - Legs/Chest/Shoulders
Tues - Flying to Canada for a week, where I will tell myself I need to try to do cardio at least 3 or 4 times, but will likely not do any.

*First time doing flat barbell bench in probably about 26 months. Felt decent. I can only lower the weigh to about 2" above my chest, which makes it a bit tougher. I was actually surprised that I could actually do so many, considering how long it's been and that I had a pretty strong Incline DB just before it. Good gains.

Back from Canada. Awesome trip. Tried to do cardio on the hotel's treadmill..it was broken...same with their elliptical. Ended up doing 25 mins on the stationary bike once during the week.

Plan from now until Sunday--pick up where I left off. Bust ass during school.

Tomorrow, golf then back day.
