    2/22 Bench Deload

    Close Grip Bench Press
    225x5
    225x5
    245x5

    DB Floor Press
    100x5
    100x5
    100x5

    Barbell Shrugs
    135x20
    225x15
    225x12
    315x8

    Pull Ups (3 different grips)
    3x10

    I could definately tell that I needed this, especially for my chest and elbows from benching. I think I strained my pec from lot having anybody to give me liftoffs on bench. Close grip is the only thing that doesn't aggrevate it.

    I look forward to my next deload (although, once I'm there I'll hate every second of it). Way to stay disciplined and just do it

    I went to the doctors today for another follow up and it seems that I am having some nerve issues in my ankle. My doctor reffered me to a pain specialist and I guess he is going to give me a shot in my foot or my back to fix it. Besides for that he told me as long as I can take the pain I am cleared to do anything I want. I have been running around a little and I will be back on the football field next week. Now I just need to get my speed back.

    Nick, is it a cortizone shot you are getting. Still might wanna go easy on it ..... (just trying to slow you down so as us mortals can catch up)

    405 was really light? Good to hear mate. I long for that day.

    Looking forward to see your next cycle!
    This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy - George Bernard Shaw

    To be honest Flynn I don't know what kind of shot it is yet. I have my appointment with him next week to find out what the deal is. Despite your attempt to slow me down I will not haha. My doctor said as long as I am cool with the pain I can do whatever. So I will be pushing it hard, especially with the speed and agility work. The cool thing is my legs always get stronger when I am working on my speed.

    2/28 Bench 5 rep week

    Bench Press
    135x15
    225x5
    260x5
    280x5
    300x7 (3 or 4 reps left in the tank, this is the first time in 4 months doing normal grip bench so my form was off.)

    Pin Press
    315x5
    365x5
    405x5 (these were all easy I will bump the weight up accordingly next week)

    DB Rows
    100x15
    150x6
    180x8
    180x8

    Pull Ups
    3x10

    Barbell Shrugs
    315x20
    405x15
    405x15

    DB Tri Extensions
    2x12

    My bench has been feeling weaker and weaker every week since I dropped military presses so they are back in the mix. My training maxes will be 350 for normal grip bench, 430 for squat, 475 for deficit deadlifts, and 220 for military presses. Also starting tonight I have football practice twice a week and games on Saturdays, so I won't be going crazy with the reps unless I feel great.

    No doubt you will be able to move those numbers within a reasonable amount of time, good luck.

    3/1 Practice

    Practiced from 8 to 10:30 and it went is good as it possibly could have. I was able to do everything I needed, my power felt great, and I made a bunch of plays. The only thing is I am a little slower but it feels like it will come back sooner than I thought. My conditioning is the main thing that needs work, practice was fine but I know if it was a game I would have been dead by halftime. My ankle is sore as **** today but it isn't pain from the break so thats good. I am squatting tonight but am definately going to take it easy. I have a game scrimmage on Saturday so I am excited to hit people that are not on my team even though I had a lot of fun hitting them too.

    I think I can get back to playing shape, for sure, just not a ton of opportunities for a 5'8" 190 lb. linebacker/safety around

    Who knows, though. I've been doing plyos and stuff like that and I'm a football coach so you never know. Plus I'm only 25.

    What league do you play for?

    Right now I just play in the "semi-pro" league here in Vegas. That label is just a little misleading. It's a blast though nothing like getting to **** people up every weekend. Once I am back to 100% with my ankle I will try out again for arena and the CFL or UFL if there is an oppurtunity. You should see if there is a semi pro league around you, I bet there is.

    "just" play in a semi-pro league? Don't cut yourself short. Semi-pro is more than alot of people will EVER play and it's quite an accomplishment. But it's a good thing to want more
