2017 comeback tour
« on: August 24, 2017, 02:04:23 PM »
The last 16 months have been a complete shitshow for me, last march I tore my left bicep,  then 6 months later went in for what I was told was a simple 2 suture labrum repair on my left shoulder  that ended up needing to be repaired a 2nd time just over 5 months ago after an old fuck in a minivan wrecked my car.

Needless to say my left arm is almost non existent now and I'm super paranoid about reinjuring the shoulder. In retrospect I probably would have just left the labrum alone.

Anyway, I moved to Plano, Texas and just started training properly again, metroflex has a gym near me that's pretty well equipped and has chalk, huge juicers and powerlifters so it feels like a good place to rebuild.

SSB squats (cant hold the bar anymore)

315 x 5 - first time using this in years, hard
365 x 3 - pretty brutal. This lift will take some getting used to

Trap bar deads (cant go pronated without pain)

Up to 455x6 - my shoulder cracked on 6 , AC joint adjustment, but that spooked me so I stopped immediately

Even though I shouls be fully healed I need to take things very slowly for now but it felt good to backsquat and pull again

Im training at off hours when the gym is empty so I don't have to be around people lol

Today, DB one arm rows

Right arm topset 130x20, reset each rep on the floor

My right bicep tendon has had a minor tear for a long time and it constantly aches despite being under 10% tear. Rows especially seem to aggravate it


Left arm topset 60lb x 20 yasssss

Football bar pulldowns lots of grips high reps, 130lb max
Hammer rows high reps just one plate
Db hammer curls 30lb x 20 and thick handle cable curls

I really like this gym, its a shame I can no longer lift heavy because their gym records on the wall would ALL be mine just 2 years ago lol

The owners brother was asking me about buying cheap equipment to add to his collection,  so i showed him an amazing online gov auction site where you can get leg presses for $10 and power racks for $50

he said "thats cool" with utter disinterest and refused to look at the site. Kind of weird

Back is utterly fucked again after trying to do yard work to get my house ready to sell, really not cool.

I figure I'm going to run a "cycle" of 300 tren alongside my hrt 200mg of test for a few months once I'm done with the pain, starting to feel really small these days :(

Making it at 200mg/ml with eo which would be crippling by itself but cut with 75% additional volume of prescription test it shouldn't hurt at all. I hope.

Pressed 60lb dbs for 15 reps.

I'm now almost as strong as I was in my first year of lifting, lol.

Hopefully I'll get 20 next time but 60s felt depressingly heavy.

Oh lord.

Is that your only injury?

It's not really limiting in the grand scheme of things, I rowed a 140 for 20 reps the other day with that arm but the niggles and pain always worry me because I don't want to have another freakin bicep repair

the real issue is that even 7 months after my 2nd shoulder surgery its still not back to 100%, having two operations on my left shoulder in the last year really messed up my training lol
