    UPPER

    Simple 6 (modified the chest stretch so that I'm only holding on to a rack by my hand and not supporting any other part of my body on it, and it feels more effective)

    INCLINE BENCH (2-3 min rest max between sets)
    95-8
    135-5
    185-6,6
    205-4,4
    Mechanical Dropset (no rest)
    205x5, 3-boardx2, 4-boardx3, 5-boardx3
    Chest felt 55" large

    FOOTBALL SKULLCRUSHERS
    125-6,6,5

    HIGH INCLINE FLARED DB ROWS
    105-12,12,10

    OH BAND TRI EXT superset DB CURLS
    blue band-14,9,8
    50-8,8,8

    FACEPULLS (2 second eccentric)
    75-10 rest-pause 5 rest-pause 4

    Went in planning on a less aggressive workout, but the inclines felt alright so I decided to play around with it and see how much I could push it.

    Hey HC. Thanks. I wish I could offer more, but I hit several road blocks early this year that have set me back a lot, and honestly I'm still dealing with a few of them. I've also been experiencing some other real life stuff I'd rather not get into here. I've just developed all these physical, mental, and emotional roadblocks and haven't really been accomplishing a lot here. I swear I am trying, though. I will work harder to be back into a regular something by June.

    UPPER

    Simple 6
    Notes: left shoulder notably stiffer than usual today. Did a light weight JM press but didn't use it as a supplemental today

    SWISS sOHP
    45-10
    95-5
    135-7x3 <-- 3 minutes between sets

    NG PULLUPS superset VBAR PUSHDOWNS

    OH CABLE TRICEP EXTENSION superset WG LAT PULLDOWNS

    190-8,8,8

    I didn't post this, but I deadlifted on Saturday and couldn't move 475 off the floor. To say I was disappointed would be an understatement. This is probably a function of not being regular with it (remember, I hit 495 2 weeks ago).

    I have had this too big guy. Think of it this way. You did not lose the lean mass that had you doing that #550-#600, so all the tissue is still right there. One just has bad days (like when we are weak from the flu) or just needs a tune in or a so called receptor spark. You still have a 454 under your hood kiddo...!

    Heh, I don't know if I'm "strong enough" yet for the weight, but like Paul says I have it in me. I just need to be at the right space-time point is all (sorry, been reading a little bit too much astronomy lately). A brief update - there's some forward motion again on my shoulder. Seeing a specialist who actually works with university, pro, and olympic athletes (as opposed to the PT lady who only saw old men and average joe gym heroes who neck press weight exclusively in smith machines). Appointment is in 2 weeks.

    Hey man. Sorry to read of the nagging injury. What exactly is going on, and is this similar to what's been going on for some time now?

    I am getting a second opinion on my shoulder tomorrow. I am positive it needs to be repaired. Highly unstable. Can't kept the shoulder down and retracted even when doing light DB curl work. I want to lift everything with my upper trap again. Has to be the RC.Heal up big guy. You definitely have it in you. Much bigger numbers are in your future.

    Hey, jinxie. Yeah, it's just a continuation of what's been going on. It's funny how I'm starting to look at many of the non-invasive procedures that you had talked to me about in various other places for my shoulder. Thankfully no signs of tears, so they say it's a soft tissue issue (adhesions, scar tissue, etc).

    I read up on your latest updates on your shoulder. I hope all that goes well, man.

    I just found out I have this cyst, lipoma, or something in my lower back that has been bothering me for some time now. I guess it took a little while for it to grow large enough for me to be able to see/feel it with my hand, but there's definitely something there. Gonna try to see a doc on Tues (a follow up for a consultation relating to a recent URI) and ask him about it.

    UPPER

    Simple 6

    INCLINE BENCH
    95-10 <-- varying speeds and explosiveness
    135-5,5
    185-3
    205-6x3 <-- 90-120 seconds rest between sets
    205-4 <-- all reps paused

    SHAFRAN PRESSES (press/extension hybrid using light farmers carries' implements with mini band attached to it)
    95+mini band-4x10 <-- murderous pump

    HIGH INCLINE FLARED DB ROWS (basically DB MEADOWS ROWS)
    115-12,12,10

    OH SINGLE ARM TRI EXTENSION superset DB CURLS
    blue band-18,14,12
    50-8,8,8 drop 25x10

    FACEPULLS
    70-12,10,8

    I was pleasingly surprised at how easy the weight was towards my last 3 sets on incline. My first 4 sets I didn't use a handoff, and the reps were rather slow. But for the last 3 I got a liftoff and they were significantly faster. How about them apples?

    Glad to hear there is no serious, frank injury to cuff and labrum, Toro. I hope you can get some relief from the treatments you are pursuing. FWIW, I am returning to medical acupuncture next week, along with trigger point injections every few weeks. In my experience, this is the only thing that helps the painful spams that come from compensating for my injury.

    Coincidentally, I have a cyst in my left rear delt. Or at least had one at the time of my last MRI. But doc said nothing to sweat. It's a function of injury, in my case. Hope yours ends up being benign as well!Hang in there man. You'll get this resolved.
