    My hip is not approving of me working out now.

    Im probably going to take a hiatus from lifting and the forums and seek pt/do mobility work to try to resolve this issue.

    Toro you don't have to leave the forum just because you aren't lifting. Chat about mobility and how the healing progress is going etc. I'm taking a week off now for issues too brother. Keep us updated so we can keep eachother encouraged and on the right track.

    I know what you're saying, but I see his reasons. I am of the school, that if I cannot have sex, I don't wanna watch it ;-)
    Sometimes a little break is what we may need, to come back with a passion and hit higher PR's especially as one ages. At least that is what I have experienced to some degree.
    Either way, all the best Toro, on your recovery and doing what you need to do, to get where you need to be.

    I strongly disagree Paul. If I can't have sex, believe you me, I'll be watching a lot of sex via the internet.

    Anyhow, I do agree though. I know you'll be back at some point, Toro.

    Well, maybe that wasn't the best example. :-(
    But when I have been injured, it is pretty frustrating just being an onlooker

    Thanks for your support and well-wishes, guys. I think I'm ready to be back. Honestly, a lot has been happening in my real life that's kept me very busy. It looks like I was really making lifting a priority because as soon as I stopped lifting other things came in and took its place. I do have a new bed (memory foam, it's awesome) and a new computer. New car will be incoming in the next couple of years, I bet.

    Anyways, lots of things have happened in my time off related to my physical status. I could go into detail but suffice to say I think I'm at a point where I can and want to start lifting more regularly again, which excites me. The short of it is I'm going to start by lifting on a very high frequency/med-high volume (over a cycle)/low intensity program for a while to bring up my muscles and my mind-muscle connection.

    14/02/16

    UPPER

    -Simple 6 for warmup, extra t-spine rollout variations, trap + neck stretching

    INCLINE BENCH (60%)
    45-8
    95-8
    135-5
    145-5,5,5,5
    150-5

    V-BAR PUSHDOWNS (+22lb chain) superset WG LAT PULLDOWNS
    70+22-15,15,15
    160-12,10; 150-10

    FACEPULLS
    70-15,12,15
    (I swear this isn't because I've lost this much strength, it's because I'm using the cable on the front/back rather than the inside that has more pulleys)

    Workout went very well. I was pain free, although benching felt very weird. To explain my numbers, since it's been a very long while since I've bench plus my shoulder injury/condition I decided to use my last known PR on incline, which I believe is around 255-260. I took 95% for a TM, and then 60% of the TM for my working sets = 145.

    Anyways, this workout was pretty good. My vertical pulling strength is really, really shot, and should be an area I seek to improve. I will be biasing my workouts for a few weeks towards vertical over horizontal pulling provided my shoulder tolerates this. I think I will use a combo of single and wide grip pulldowns as well as weighted chinups.

    Well, I subluxed my left leg again and messed up my hip. My fault for being a dumbass and trying to free squat so soon after this insult to my anatomy. Anyways, I'll just have to start with sled drags and other non-squat work for a while then work up to box squats.

    I think whatever is happening now is the same thing that happened back around December. I checked myself for a hernia, and a doc checked me for a hernia as well and found nothing. We think it might be a lower back issue. I'm going to go see a chiro who will throw in X-rays as part of the consultation (so I wont get charged on top of it) and see what he says and see if I need more tests or if an obvious issue presents itself. It might be that one of my lower back joints is irritated or something got caught in the area of one of my lower back joints considering I can trigger pain by flexing my lower back.

    Yesterday was my last day at PT. We basically had a real workout session with lots of pushups, stabilizing planks (on a bosu while I rocked it, while they rocked it), IR/ER, rows and pulldowns (lat extensions, as they call it), etc. So I didn't go to the gym that day for upper body, especially since it was an overhead day for me. So I went today.

    14/02/19

    UPPER

    Simple 6, more t-spine PVC rolls, neck stretches

    SWISS BAR PRESS
    45-8
    95-5 <-- 90 sec rest, I meant to put on 90lbs
    90-7x5 <-- 90 sec between sets
    Easy, RPE like 6

    PUSHUPS superset CHINUPS
    BW-3x20
    BW-3x10 <-- too heavy, will use band next time

    SINGLE ARM REAR DELT MACHINE (tempo 4010)
    75-15,15,15

    Fast workout. Everything felt good. Next week I might experiment with a straight bar. Swiss bar was a little funny as I really wanted to externally rotate at the top but couldn't. That's about all there is to say on this workout. I remember about 3 years ago I was doing seated DB presses with 90s in each hand ... what happened, lol.

    Friends, I have interesting news. I seem to have some significant chiropractic issues both in my hip and my neck.

    To begin, I have moderate pronation in the feet, and I am a bit flat (Sam, my initial diagnoses may have been sugar-coated by the tech). I have a subluxed, bulging disc in my low back (L5, common) which is causing the pain in my hip and the sciatica-like pain in my glutes and low back. It's mild which explains why it doesn't radiate down the leg. Doc says this appears pretty treatable.

    Next, my neck is presenting as having a reverse neck curve, which my chiro explained is a result of a trauma and not congenital nor likely a result from weightlifting. While I brought up the car accident 2 years ago, I actually believe this may be from years of having forward neck posture. Interestingly, one of the manifestations of having this is bursitis =o . He did leave me with some rather bad news, which is that this condition could be controlled but likely cannot be cured. I might see another specialist down the line to get a second opinion on this.

    I won't be squatting/deadlifting for a little while nor be doing goodmornings etc. I can do reverse hyper. I'll reassess in a couple of weeks - I anticipate Ill be able to return then. In the meantime I will continue my upper body work.
