Recommended Posts

Amazing speeches by the Rock and Arnold. I always watch motivational stuff like this especially when times are tough like now:

Starting to feel real......  

Still alive and still training. I never stopped. Work and my personal life got crazy so I took some time off from logging. My strength is really coming back though. Almost full strength on pressing mo

I'm very glad to hear that!  Enjoy the power- lounging while you can; you'll be stronger than ever in no time.

Thanks Eric! I feel good today. Just a few tingles but no pain. Already thinking about when I’m going to the gym. I have always come back stronger from an injury and I hope to keep the streak alive

I'm sure he'll hit MM3 off-hand while recovering. He's a fighter.

Good news it didn’t hurt when it happened and I had no pain after surgery. Just going to be a long recovery

Ya, they went in there to get a tendon graft to fix the finger. I have another spot like that further down the forearm

I changed the name of the log because right now I’m focused on taking down the MM8. If I get it the 3.5 will follow. It’s going to be a long road back from injury but this isn’t my first Rodeo. I’m going to start training my left side this week with weights and logging the workouts. Time to start the journey and see what I’m made of. I have never been a quitter and I don’t plan on changing now.  

Whatever it takes......

Hope you heal quick dude. You’ve had too many folks chopping you up the past few years.

Thanks bud. Ya, things haven’t gone according to plan. All I can do is learn from it and use it as fuel to come back stronger like last time

First day back in the gym. The journey starts today. Typing this with just my left hand. Went to the doctor yesterday and he said everything looks good. wrote me a prescription for a new brace which holds the finger at 70 degrees. Had to go my occupational therapist after work today to have her maker it. i'll post a pic of it in the next post since I'm on my desktop and pic is on my phone. Went to the gym with my girl after dinner

Everything done with just the left side, not including the weights for now since I just want to focus on rehab and including weights may make me ego lift and  go too fast too soon. warm ups not included:

Seated Machine Bench Press

Sets of 10x, 8x, 6x, 4x, 4x, 10x, 10x, 10x 

Hammer Strength Plate Loaded Incline Press

sets of 10x, 8x, 6x, 5x, 10x, 10x, 10x

Pec Deck Machine

4 sets of 10x

Machine Triceps Extensions

4 sets of 10x

Machine Preacher Curls 

4 sets of 10x

Notes: Short workout to get back in the flow. felt great being back in the gym and logging again. People at work, occupational therapy, the gym and family are already doubting me and looking at me like I'm crazy. They are telling me I should quit and give up because of my age and injuries. I'm using it as fuel to come back better than ever. I love being the underdog and proving people wrong. Been that way all my life. Ran into my buddy who's a 60 year old natural powerlifter and who's won his weight class and age group for over 20 years. He gets it. The man is driven and has overcame numerous injuries. Hes been texting support and advice. Tonight he helped me load plates on the hammer strength machine and I spotted him on the incline Bench with one hand. I feel hes the only person I know who understands the mindset. Glad to have his friendship, advice and support.

 

Quote of the day: 

“It's always hard to deal with injuries mentally, but I like to think about it as a new beginning. I can't change what happened, so the focus needs to go toward healing and coming back stronger than before.”
- Carli Lloyd
