    Witty, creative title

    So I'm back in the weight room for the first time in over a year. My last deployment obliterated my knees almost beyond repair. The menisci in both of my knees is torn, degeneratively. I've spent the past year or so on the couch, drinking beers and popping pills. The doc at the closest VA hospital does not think I need surgery and will not refer me for anything but physical therapy. I don't have the cash for my own insurance nor do I have it to drive an hour one way every morning for PT. A good friend of mine recommended me some http://www.vibramfivefingers.com/ on the thought that barefoot training might help me out, and it has. I've had them for about a month and I'm already back to running 3-4 miles a day and lifting on a 3 day split. I'm only interested in losing this 40lbs or so of body fat I've put on, and increasing my strength. I have no desire to be a competitive anything nor do I care about the size of my muscles. I'm eating about 1200-1500 calories a day, and almost always lifting 3x5. I have about 8 months to get back into shape before stepping onto the plane for Afghanistan. I was banned from my school gym for wearing my five fingers in there (they are not safe, apparently), so my training schedule will not be as consistent as I hoped it to be as I spend 10-15 hours a day on campus and then need to drive out of my way to the gym.

    Super tired all day. Girlfriend came home drunk at 3am and was loud as hell. Slept like ****. Had a dude in a hurry to get to work drive about 120 down the rural road I take to campus, running everyone off the road in the process. Spent the morning on the phone with my old roommate who is now a cop setting up another cop to sit on that route monday morning and try to catch him in the act.

    BB Squats: 115lbs, trying to work on my form, don't think I'm going low enough normally.
    Sumo Deadlift: 185lbs
    Cable Rear Pulldowns: 120lbs
    Seated Rows: 140lbs
    Machine Hamstring Curls: 215lbs
    Standing One-Leg Calf Raises: 90lbs
    GHR - 60 lbs
    Single Leg Split Squats: 90lbs - wow, these drained me. Don't think I had any ATP left in my legs after these. Don't think I've ever grunted like a bro that much in the gym.

    Off today, tomorrow and probably Monday. Have 7 final exams on Monday from 0730 to 2000. After that though, I'm clear for the summer.
