well im back!

 

Weighed in before bed last night at 120.8kg this morning was 118.2kg. So a week of normal good eating and hard work should have me back to normal "weight" but i know my strength and fitness will have dropped off a lot.

 

I have a list of my worst eating day that ill post up tomorrow, it was pretty bad not to mention all the booze but hey, I was on holiday!

 

Keen to get back into it tomorrow!

keep ya head up champ, there is always light at the end of the tunnel. think about how much stronger mentally you will be when it comes to weightlifting. just eat right, clean, enough food to maintain, plenty of water and listen to your body when you need to rest, youll be back in no time

back at work now and feeling better. still 119.5kg as didnt change diet when I said I would so im getting hard on myself. :whack:

 

Im on the 2 week 5 can diet and ill be kettlebelling right handed only after work each day. Physio has said I need to keep working my right index finger so this should be good for it. Left wrist is still immobile so I cant do anything there.

 

gotta drop some kgs, really noticing a change for the worse lately so time to upslap myself and get my shit together. Im down but not out! :thumbsup:

More KB. Much less sore now back into the 'swing' ;) of things.

 

Can grip the KB properly now as my fingers flexibility is much better, still strictly nothing left handed.

 

Still unable to drive thus no gym which is making me <_ but what can you do>

had a follow up appointment with the orthopaed (bone doctor) today. Took some new Xrays and got a positive prognosis.

 

Bone is healing up well and is lookin good. Best part. Dont have to wear my spiker/brace 24/7 anymore. Just while im sleeping and when I am doing anythin strenuous. :D

 

I start physio for my wrist on Monday as movement is still very limited especially bending back into the clean catch position. No movement there at all which is massively important to me to get back to 100%

 

So plan from here is:

 

Safety box squats

one arm press heavy

light deads and bench (like 20-40kg)pendin what physio says is OK.

EAT CLEAN. Really struggling to get back on track, im not sure whats keeping me from getting back to it 100% like before my stack... guesss 2 months of bad habits is gonna be hard to undo :(

 

Oh and I can DRIVE AGAIN!!! No more busses!!! :beer::thumb:

experimenting at powersports this arvo. Testing my wrist out.

 

Bench - Not enough ROM to bench properly, can get away with open hand and a strap but no weight on the bar.

 

Rows - 20kg Felt OK. 3x8

 

Deadlifts up to 60kg clean grip only, couple of sets of various reps, not keen to go heavier didnt feel strong in the joint.

 

safety squats - just did some light ones, 60kgx2x8

 

so right now my 3 lift total is 140kg. awesome, so doesnt look like ill be entering anything anytime soon. :(

1/6/10 Tuesday

 

Powersports

 

Just some more light stuff to get the wrist stretching and testing range of movement.

 

Can now lockout a bench press but not with any weight on it, ROM isnt 100% but its close enough.

 

Pulling seems OK, 40kg row was fine.

 

cant chin yet.

 

can press ~5kg overhead without pain

 

did some other fluff and wrist felt OK after it, got loosened up well.

11/6/10 Thursday

 

Powersports

 

Decided to max out 3 lifts and see how bad things have gotten. I was aiming for a 300kg total for the big 3.

 

Safety Squat: 2x8x65kg 8x105kg 1x145kg. Stopped there. Baseline set.

 

Bench: manyxbar, 5x30kg, 3x40kg, 1x50kg. baseline set. Its not a strength issue its a wrist ROM/pain issue, just cant grip it tight on a lockout which puts the load on my thumb which hurts a lot.

 

Deadlift: 2x5x60kg, 3x100kg, 1x140kg, 1x160kg. baseline set. clean grip up to 140kg, have to reverse my grip as I cant pull underhanded with my left hand anymore.

 

Total: 350kg. So better than I expected but pretty piss weak compared to 3 months ago pre-accident.

Cleans: 3x60kg PAIN. Stopped

 

Squats: proper squats, no safety bar :) 5x60kg 12x80 8x80

Overall pretty positive. Im continuing Physio and getting my diet back on track. Aiming to compete in one month in Sydney at the Shire. Evem if its a token effort itll be good.
