Lukehayd's road to reclamation!
So, after being out of it for pretty much 3 months, it's time to reclaim my numbers! I've tried lifting at home and keeping things from back sliding too far but it was all too easy for me to get discouraged when my grip would fail or my fingers would just start throbbing painfully. For those that don't know the story, here's the thread with pictures. (Not for the squeamish!)
Just got out of the game for a while. :(
Tonights workout: chest/ shoulders
135×10, 185×10, 225×5, 225×3
Cable flies (high pulley)
40×10, 50×10, 60×10, 80×10, 90×10
Cable flies (low pulley)
30×10, 40×10, 60×10, 80×10, 90×5
Hammer strength iso press
45×10×2, 80×5×2, 90×5
DB raises (front to lateral)
20×10×3, 25×10, 35×5
I was pleasantly surprised at how well my grip held up with the flies and raises. It's not as good as it used to be but I'm happy with the progress! I can definitely tell I've lost some strength in my lifts but I'm hoping I will rebound quickly to get back to where I was.BPS REP

Nice work dude! I know how hard it is to come back from an injury (shoulder surgery here) You'll be amazed how quickly you get your numbers back up, it's quite fun!

Back workout today
Hammer strength seated rows
45 × 10× 2, 70×10×2, 80×5
45×10, 55×10, 65×10, 75×10, 85×10, 100×5
Seated low pulley rows
40×10, 50×10, 60×10, 80×5, 120×5
Behind the head pulldowns
50×10×2, 70×10, 80×10, 90×10, 100×5
(Same as above)
I was glad there was a spare set of lifting straps at the gym because I left mine at home. Grip strength really suffered! It was also a lot nicer on the fingers so iI didn't have to grasp as hard. There were a couple times that I had to stop mid-set to readjust my grip with my right hand.

Thank you. I sure hope it comes back quickly! I think it will as most of my lifts don't seem to have suffered a tremendous amount but they have suffered! Things are progressing though with my grip strength increasing in my right hand and some of the movement and feeling coming back. The strength isn't what bothers me the most, it's the feeling. Finger tips on 2 of the 3 are still somewhat numb and probably will be for a while. It tends to be rather annoying all throughout the day, not just at the gym.

In for grip rehab and increasing numbers!
May I suggest using this app to track your bloodwork tests:

Walked into gym today and there was only one other guy in there. It make it even better that he wasn't even in the free weights section!! Took my Quake ten minutes prior and 1/2 scoop mixed in with some fp modern BCAAs for an intra drink. I like this dosing schedule! Keeps me amped all throughout.
135×10, 185×10, 225×8, 315×5, 185×5, 135×10
Iso leg extensions:
1 set of 15, 4 sets 10
Plate loaded leg press/squat press:
200×15×2, 400×10, 490×5, 400×5
Calf press with same numbers about after each set above: 10 ea
Kept things from going too heavy as I'm trying to not rush back too quickly. I can definitely tell I've lost here too with my absence and not pushing things at home. On a good note though, my right knee wasn't making any noises or feeling unstable.
