    Shoulder felt about as good as it has since the injury so went a little heavier today. All still felt good and not as slow as usual.

    Press
    45x15x2, 75x12, 100x10, 120x6, 140x5, 155x5, 165x5, 172.5x5*, 185x2, 192.5x1, 200x1, 205x1, 165x5
    Notes: Most I've done post injury is 170x5 and 185x1, so 172.5x5 and 205x1 are big increases. Once I got to 155 I could still feel the weakness in my right shoulder, but had less weakness and less discomfort than usual. Felt nice to have over 200 on the bar, even if I was doing it for singles instead of volume.

    Chins
    4,5,6,6,5,5,5,5,4 = 45 reps
    Notes: These felt pretty good today, too.

    Right: 16x8, 20x8, 24x6x3, 16x15
    Notes: Big increase for the right side here. I remember about a week after the injury I did a few press reps with 20 or 25 lbs and it was very weak and hurt like hell. Even though it's still weak and hurts sometimes, it's nice to be able to do some strict press work with 24kg and have it be OK.

    Skipped the hollow planks because a late lunch of two orders of spicy noodles from the thai place across the street was a bad idea. I did try to get into squat position at the end, just to if there was any improvement on a day when it felt relatively good pressing and chinning and the answer was a definitive no. Not even close and it hurt just trying.

    I've been getting caught up on logs and sorry to see you are having to deal with another setback. Sucks. I'm sure you are very frustrated but just looks like you are going to be the expert on training through the ebb and flow of life and injury.

    So, it's official: I got my surgery scheduled for mid-March. I want to get it done sooner but we're in the middle of a strength cycle at the gym and it wouldn't be fair to ditch out in the middle of that considering it's not an emergency. My return to coaching will probably be for the Brooklyn seminar in April, unless I'm feeling unexpectedly good and go back to the gym prior to that.

    I went to the gym before coaching this morning to train, since I skipped yesterday due to lack of motivation. Despite being in the morning (ugh) and not eating anything beforehand, ended up having a good session and some fun.

    Press
    45x15, 65x12, 95x10, 120x8, 140x6, 160x5, 170x5, 177.5x5, 190x3, 205x2, 215x1, 225x1x2
    Notes: A whole bunch of post-injury PRs today, including two reasonably strong singles at 225. I could have doubled them if I had to. And still no belt or wrist wraps because I thought I'd just be doing fives, so that was a nice little surprise.

    Here's the second single: Instagram

    Chins
    4,6,6,6,6,6,5,5,5 = 49 reps.
    Notes: The sixes were hopping today. Ready for some sevens.

    R: 16x8, 24x7x4
    Notes: No 20s available so had to make the big jump with my right arm. It wasn't ideal but went OK.

    Nice K-Bell Pressing. Currently I can only do 1 rep L&R with the 32.

    Thanks Walter. Ha! Maybe we've found something I can be the best at via unfortunate personal experience.

    Thanks Shugs. I was stronger with the KB pressing right after the injury, when I had just completed my best ever cycle of press volume work. I've scratched and clawed my way back to about 80% of pre-injury pressing strength but that and the KB pressing just haven't been enough to maintain my top end strength.

    Default Monday, 2/1/16

    Just passed the 4 year mark since I started this log. Time really flies.

    Press
    45x15, 65x12, 95x10, 120x8, 140x6, 155x5, 165x5, 175x5x3
    Notes: Shoulder felt pretty good again today, too, but did a little more volume and no heavier weights.

    Chins
    4,6,7,7,7,6,6,5,4 = 52 reps
    Notes: Upped top sets to sevens. Still feels good, easy.

    Deadlift
    135x5, 185x5, 225x5
    I also pulled a hard-fought lifetime PR SUMO DEADLIFT of 185, caught on film by my friend Sarah, which you can watch in all its glory here: Instagram
    Notes: It's been 3.5 weeks since I last did a deadlift. With a bunch of work on it, it's better now than before but still not back to normal. Could feel it a bit during these pulls.

    KB 1A PR
    L: 24x6, 28x6, 32x5, 36x3, 40x3x2
    R: 16x8, 24x5x5
    Notes: Also dicked around with a few clusters, windmills, snatches [oxford comma], and even a get-up with the 24kg, just to see how bad the rust of not doing these things for a while had accumulated. Not that badly, as it happens. Though I had to be really careful with my shoulder on the get-up, and stopped at 1.

    Pushed some heavier weights (heavy for current condition) today. Will probably stay lighter and with fives for a few workouts now; after pushing it twice within a five day span, I can feel it a bit in my shoulder. I'm not going to do anything great or set any PRs now anyway, so no reason so push hard and exacerbate it.

    Press
    45x15, 65x12, 95x10, 125x6, 145x5, 165x5, 185x3, 205x2, 215x2, 225x2, 235x1, 245xf, 165x8
    Notes: Put my belt on today for the first time in 3 months. I got fatter. Which is no surprise since, after losing all motivation to be disciplined about food, I've been eating about the same as when I'm training hard. Except without actually training hard, more like hardly at all, and with more dessert. Anyway, hit a reasonably solid 225x2 and 235x1 before missing 245 due to just wussing out. Pretty happy with these #s considering what's going on with my shoulder.

    BWx4x8 = 32

    Messed around with a few deadlifts at 165 (just took the bar down from my last press set), but still didn't feel good so cut it.

    That is a solid press, man. Makes me feel inadequate.

    Thanks Tommy D. Don't feel inadequate. You're squatting, benching, and pulling much more than me right now.
