    Reincarnated

    Weight- 235 (steady for a couple months now)

    Well boys and girls, I'm back from hiatus. Some things have changed, I'm 18 for one, and as to the other, I'm no longer in football due to a twice injured strained rotater cuff that some of you may remember. Long story short, I was starting varsity for our team at left tackle on defense and was hit from the side, causing me to reinjure the cuff. I was told by an orthaepedist that I could tear it if it happened again, and that would be surgery. Bye bye, football.

    I am very fit these days, but I am kinda nervous about testing my strength out again after a couple months of ****ty lifting, then 1 of none for the cuff to heal. Of course I'm doing light cuff work with bands and 3 lb weights. I have to get every little muscle as strong as possible in my shoulders and healed before I can get hardcore again.

    It's frustrating, not being able to get in the weightroom and tear something up. But I don't want a permanent injury, so I'll take a little break. I still have to talk to the coach, but I think I can wrestle and bowl at the same time. So by the time my shoulder heals decently, wrestleing will start. Good.

    Anyway, I'm back and talkative as ever.

    Thanks for the warm welcome guys, always good to have you around.

    On the upside of things, my cuff is healing much faster than ever due to being careful with it and doing cuff work. Also, I'm training a friend to get stronger. We go in 3 days a week to get the guy stronger. I'm excited, it's alot like what I plan on doing for a living. I like it alot. But he's spoiling me, he's cooperative and punctual, something alot of others won't be. I've only been helping him for a week as of tomorrow, but I expect to see progress. He tries hard. Good.

    Of course, I have him benching, deading and squating. The guy's got good form. I see his squat going up fast. I'm doing what I can for now, and when I do come back full strength, it'll be awesome. Still doing crunches, side crunches, russians, bench leg lifts, and all the other stuff I can right now. I'm also back to eating healthy, getting set for a major comeback.

    Hey, good to see you again.

    Rotator cuff injuries lick.

    I have a surgical consult in a few weeks, and I'm really, REALLY hoping they can do something for mine.

    I miss bench press.

    Weight- 236 had to come home and wrestle several large pigs. Damn farm.

    Built- I hope it all turns out for you, the first time I hurt mine I couldn't so much as raise my arm above my waist for a week and it was the worst pain of my life when I did it. I nearly tore the cuff. But things are feeling alots better these days. Not nearly healed, but good enough to lift.

    Gotta get my all-american bench press back

    Monday's lifting (taking care not to hurt myself)

    Bench
    135x10
    185x10
    185x10

    Squat (deep mind you, and first time I've squatted on my own in months)
    135x10
    185x10
    Squatted down before doing last set, and though I tore my hammie in half. Next lift.

    Power cleans
    135x10
    **** this.

    Reverse crunches
    2x10 bah

    Today's

    Skull crushers
    65x10
    85x10

    Db curls
    35'sx10
    45'sx10

    Db hammers
    35'sx10
    55'sx10 not too bad actually

    Tri ext
    100x10
    140x10

    Single arm lat cable pulls (on one knee)
    180x10 per arm
    170x10 per arm holy **** these are fun, but hard to keep form. Must work on it.

    Bench leg lifts
    1x20 worked abs 2 days ago, so light today. Ok, pretty crappy, leave me alone.

    Db front raises
    35'sx10
    35'sx10 easy, but not wanting to aggravate things.

    Standing calf raises
    225x10
    225x10 traps hurt like hell from yesterday's squats, as they've lost their immunity to the bar. Dammit.

    cp- lol the world of sin awaits :evillaugh

    Sylvia- Thanks, great to be back

    Coke- teh road to recovery my friend

    Who knows my weight? 235 you say? Correct.

    Did some rotator cuff work today with db's and a cord. Somewhat painful.

    Crunches
    2x10

    Bench leg lifts
    2x10

    Side crunches
    1x10 per side

    Reverse pushups
    2x10

    This all felt good. Right now I'm just looking to recover, then gain my strength back (shouldn't be too long) and then put on more mass and strength, then cut again. But that's getting ahead of myself, I need to focus on recovery right now.

    Rotator cuff hurts some. I am 240 right now, full of food though. Didn't eat too healthy today, but nothing major as I won't eat well for one day, then I will for a week. That's how it usually goes when I"m doing nothing special for my diet. I wrestled a friend (220 and stocky) and did a suplex on his ass, ending the match. Then we did another, in which I made him submit to me doing a wrist roll in which I somehow incorporated a knee. Fun times.

    Tomorrow is the same thing as monday, almost.

    Was going to lift today, but decided against it as I'll be lifting with a guy that's quite knowledgable from another town tomorrow. I will be lifting at a YMCA. Should be an interesting report back.

    Well, the guy I was going to lift with can't this weekend because his brother decided to unexpectedly show up. Dammit. Oh well, recovery for my shoulder is how I have to look at it.

    Staying with some friends tonight. His grandparents are gone :evillaugh

    We had a small one, only 10 people. No alcohol, strangely. So, we drank ungodly amounts of pop. Worse than beer in alot of ways.

    Didn't feel like lifting today, but did. Glad I did.

    Bench
    135x10 at the bottom of each rep, I got a cuff twinge. Moving on.

    Squat
    135x10
    225x10
    245x10 hey, for some reason I think my squats are going to explode. This last set was easy even. Probably good for 15.

    Db rows
    35'sx10
    50'sx10
    65'sx10
    85'sx10 sweet

    No energy for power cleans, core was already highly stressed out and form would have been ****. I just use them to get good and worked out all over in general, and I already had that feeling lol. Sort of nauseous after the db rows.

    Somebody explain this to me: Last week when I did squats, I wasn't able to finish my sets (even though they were incredibly light) becuase I would have hurt myself by just doing the motion of squatting, that's how badly I hurt. Up until 2 days ago I was in pain (DOMS style) from it.

    Today, I blow past what I thought would have been remotely close to what I thought I'd achieve, and I have NO pain at all. None. 1 week's difference. 2 sessions. How does it change this fast???????????????????

    U already placed yourself at a certain level before the layoff, it should be no surprise...will always be the man too -

    Great workout day, especially with the squats. Looks like things are about to blow up again in here Nick.

    Coke: That seems like good reasoning, just never had it happen like that before. I guess muscle memory is great! Thanks for the props, I just have a really good feeling about this winter's strength gains.

    No lifting today, bowling tryouts. I will be top seeded on varsity again, of course. Sweetass to have bowling around again. We go to state every year, and place well (usually) this year will be awesome. Tomorrow, I will lift really hard. Probably will go to 4x10 instead of 3x10 on both auxillaries and core lifts. Thoughts?

    Nick, glad to see you back kid. Wrestling pigs is going to make you very quick when wrestling humans. Think of it as training.

    A couple of things:

    My cuffs have both sucked for some time. In the last few months I've been working to get them stronger. Here's some of what I've done, maybe it will help you.
    1: Rotator cuff exercises with bands or cables, 2-4x per week after heavy lifting.
    2: No direct overhead shoulder work.
    3: Full range benching (heavy) only once every 6-8 weeks (rest is board presses, limiting my shoulder involvement).
    4: BB rows for your lats and rear delts. Weak rear delts are often a cause of shoulder problems, especially in an explosive athlete (like a DT) since there is nothing to decelerate the very powerful motion caused by your front delts.
    5: ETS (it's a miracle)

    Some other points:
    Get some more warm up sets with squats using just the bar. It will loosen your hammys up.
    Don't throw away the power cleans. They can be a great tool. If you are capable of doing 10x135, I would work up and see what you can do for 3 reps. Heavier weight always works better on an inherently dynamic movement like cleans.

    Keep working, keep eating. You're one hell of a motivated guy, and that's rare for anyone, let alone someone who is 18.

    Stats: Age: 34 Weight: 205 Height: 5'6"
    Gym PRs: Squat:635 Bench:560 Deadlift:495
    Meet PRs: Squat:575 Bench:525 Deadlift:510 Total: 1605@220

    Drew- Much thanks for all the great info, I really appreciate it. ALso, thanks for the good words.

    Sylvia- Thanks as well for your kindness, all compliments that I get go into my lifting.

    Light-moderate DOMS in the upper half of my back, namely, all my traps. Light sensation of DOMS in my quads, but only when I flex them sufficiently. My knees don't hurt at all, which is a good thing. I go as low as I can on squats, which is slightly below parallel. I would say atf, but I'm not flexible enough.

    A depressing note: before football began and we had a strength test, my projected bench (with 280x6) was 330, in the "all-american" class for 11th grade, heavy build. My squat was projected at 350 (with 295x7 I believe), which would be "great" class. Power clean was projected at 225, with 185x7 I think it was. I was also seated rowing 405x5. Now, I can not go to nearly that on these lifts, exept for squat. So, while I'm healing and waiting for a monster comeback and supercesion of previous records, I will focus on squatting. Alot.

    Did some nice farmwork today, just now getting in the house. Got to go eat scary amounts.
