    That makes me laugh! I may be lifting more, but I have stalled out recently and am hoping that using RPE based programs may get things going again. Plus, I'm an old guy (46yo) starting to show signs of recoveritis, so I want my program to allow for that as well. Thanks for putting up with me and answering my questions. Your post last month got me on this track. Looking forward to mucho gainzzz!


    I love the Alan Thrall video and all of his stuff - esp the more recent stuff when he started training with the BB Med guys. Informative, plus he has a knack with the videography. I never miss his new videos.

    It'll take a bit of time to figure out, I'm sure... but you'll get there. Post up some vids in your logs... might be useful in having others help.

    Time: 130-min

    Feelz: Good, but again, little sleep (maybe 5-hours??)

    Went to another gym today... lots of time wasted talking. Equipment sucks compared to what I'm used to, so that made it a bit more challenging

    - Crappy incline bench; slippery and wobbly. Made the exercise even harder than it had to be.
    - My ROM looks sorta crappy in the video... doesn't feel that short... hmm!

    2017-12-21 (Thurs)

    Feelz: Shoulder still hurts, but decided to "test" what I can do and what the result will be... lifted through the pain (probably dumb...)

    C. Bench: 45x10, 135x5, 185x3, 225x1, 245x1, 265x1, 275x1 @7.5?, 225x5 x 6-sets
    - Took a wider grip than usual... seemed to work better, but still hurt, especially at the end of volume and on the last sets

    P. Squat: 45x8, 135x4, 225x4, 315x4, 350x4 x 6 sets
    - Shoulder was tight after benching, hurt a bit to squat, but not terrible

    Chinups: 3x8

    Is this an ac joint issue or something else? The one thing I wish I did when my ac joint went beyond healing is give it a break and not work through the pain. Taking a few weeks and avoiding agitation is nothing compared to the time it takes to schedule surgery, and then the time it takes to recover and then realizing I no longer had an AC joint and I lost elastic force ability in that shoulder. Just old man thoughts!

    Had to Google that... the pain is near where the front deltoid attaches and the traps attach in the same point, so very well may be. Hard to pin-point it exactly.

    I was sore after the last workout, not as much as in the previous week, but still painful. It's sometimes hard to stay away and lose gains, especially because I have a bet with a friend that I'll be benching 315 by Feb 1st. However, "old man" advice sounds wise. I'll lay off for a bit, thanks for the tip and sharing your experience!!
