  4. Weigh in today was not what I was hoping for, but at least we got it going in the right direction. 295.2, down 1 pound. Will go another week and if we don't see a bigger drop, going have to change some dietary things.

    Yep, sure can. Just started stacking Alphaburn and Vanillean. Usually save them for when I am closer to my goal, but figured I may as well, not like I am ever going to be in contest prep mode.

    4/19/13 Chest, Bi's, rehab work with emphasis on quads. 4:05-5:00
    Today was a glorious day indeed!

    Bench (warm up with bar, 135) 195x5, 205x5, 215x5

    Leg Press 230x12/10 (Varied foot position)

    Nautilus Ab Machine 150x10, 80x20 (lower position for last set meant less leverage)

  9. Given that yesterday went so well, I kind of got a burr up my bung and said "WTF, let's see how pulling /deadlifting goes. My left side is certainly weaker but I did not sense any issue with neuron recruitment, so hopefully it is just an atrophy issue, so that is good news!

    Anyways, here is how it went:

    4/20/13 Rear chain and triceps, 3:45-4:45 Started off with 5 minute bike warm up.

    Deads 135x6, 185x5, 225x5 (Hey, it's a start)

    DB SLDL 45'sx8/8

    Underhand Straight Bar Cable row: 130x12/12, 145x11

    Close Grip Bench 135x12/12, 145x10

    EZ Bar Crushers 85x9/7

    Cable Tri PD Drop set 130x10, 100x10, 60x12

    Leg raises off of bench 10 with straight leg, 5 with bent knees.

    Am very pleased with how this went. Considering a different split, gonna need to chew on that a bit.

    Greetings AM Community. It is good to be back. Long story short, I am returning from a roughly 6 month medical leave and am almost finished healing but now comes the rehab. My experience left me with what the Doctors say is neurological damage and compromised blood flow in my left leg. During this process I dropped from a solid 270 to a much weaker 243 while sitting in a hospital bed for 22 days. That was 27 pounds of time in the squat rack and dead lifts and rows.....you get the idea, this was not a weight loss strategy I favored. I kind of let the diet go to hell sitting around the house being bored and restricted on activity and shot back up around 290, so that is about a 47 pound swing of fat gain. Got cleared to return to work in early February, cleared to lift in late February with some small limitations. (Primarily can do any upper body work and lower is supposed to be limited to leg extensions and hammy curls which I have been doing more rehab type lifting for. I will not lie, now that my last little bit of wound healing is pretty much done, I have played some on the hack squat and leg press sleds.

    So why am I making this a log. For 2 reasons: 1)The people of this community were an awesome support, encouragement and means of accountability as I dropped down from 322 to 260 starting in Early 2011 (I think). I need that accountability in getting my diet in check and making my training sessions. 2) If I can inspire just one person who also has challenges to overcome, then documenting this is all worth while.
    Tony! I'm glad you were able to have figured out what was giving you issues! It's not an easy process coming back after extended time out, and cerainly not when your body has suffered such damage, I know. Doing a log is brave and putting yourself out there, so kudos on that. Any support and encouragement you need, you've got it! Stay Strong in Faith and just Do It, bud!

    Thanks wasme. Just a quick update: No work outs the last two days due to ball games. My little guy got his first hit, a single on a line shot to left field. Very pleased for him as he struggled in adjusting from Pee Wee ball to Little League last year, had been intimidated by bigger kids pitching to him. Kept the diet pretty well tight, just a bit over 2000 cals Sunday, just a bit under 2000 yesterday. Will be lifting tonight!

  14. Awesome about your boy's first hit!

    I remember that day... my daughter got hers the same day. One really big day I had .. a lttle background.. my daughters football team did not have enough players so I ased my son's coach if she could play for his team. We did not expect much of anything from her. The first gain it's 2nd and 8 or so. They thorw her the ball and she catches and runs for a first down. We were freaking out. She's like 9 and a girl playing with 11 and 12 year olds. The next year she was the QB but that's another story.

  17. 4/23/13 Chest and Quads 5:35-6:35

    Inc BB Press (W\u with Bar, 135) 175x5, 185x5, 195x5 (Each rep touching the upper chest)

    Flat DB Press 75's x 10/8

    One set of Smith Machine squats just to loosen the hip flexors etc before ->
    Bench Squat 140x5, 160x5, 170x5 (+ a neg) I should be happy but it was briefly discouraging getting stuck on rep 6.
    Lost focus on where I am headed and started to think of what I had lost (400+ Squat) That lasted about 10 seconds before it just pissed me off and made me more determined. Also, I was actually able to hit the bench repeatedly at all weights this week.

    Deep Hack Squat (Sled) 140x8/8

    Cable Crunch 140x15/20

    2421 cals. Going to get some AM cardio in tomorrow morning before work.

  18. Don't worry about the numbers now bro.

    It won't help to dwell on where you used to be, all you can do now is move forward from where you are currently.

    It may be easier to treat this like you're starting up for the first time, don't judge based on what you used to do and simply focus on how much more you can do now than you did last week!

    I understand what you are saying Jim and I appreciate the input. I am just a stubborn SOB and like most stubborn SOB's the worst thing you can do if you want to beat me is "throw down the gauntlent" because it only serves to strengthen my resolve.

    I'm the same way.

    Also, I'm considering buying a real gauntlet. I want to go to Britain and throw it at people and see how many accept my challenge (you're first Ben)

  22. Did complete the AM cardio, 25 minutes, random hill profile. Due to a crisis intervention at work did not get to break fast till 4:00, 20 hr fast plus cardio should make for a good burn.
