    Weight: 270
    Height 6'2"
    Body fat percentage: 100%... at least.

    Ordered Do-Win shoes and a Rogue B&R bar to go with my Rogue Matt Chan Black bar. Now if only my lifts were this serious.

    I like having one inside and outside the cage. I really like the Chan for deads, seems like the B&R will be for Dead Lifts.

    Recently gave my initial weight set to my daughter and son-in-law.

    Gave my Adidas Powerlift 3's to my brother. After 6 months they seemed too tight (aka narrow).

    So, I have more money in my bars than the rest of my equipment combined.

    I am confident that I'll make progress that will one day justify these bars.

    Very pumped about Game of Thrones starting again in 6 days.

    Cutting way back on carbs. What the hell?
    Seems like reasonably synergy with what I'm up to. I'll just watch for the soreness Rip mentions when he discusses low carb. I'm guessing I won't go that low. At a weight of 269, which means 269g of Protein a day is a low end number. My fairly standard 3 eggs, half a chicken, hunk of cheese, 16 oz yogurt, and some nuts is approaching half of that.

    So, Lucy, u gotz some splaining to do. Maybe more protein powder.

    By my calculations... 269g of protein is 42.7 eggs. Cool Hand Luke didn't even eat that many!

    Took a fall, to avoid face plant I caught myself sort of like a push up.
    Everything was fine except I tore my rotator cuff again.
    I was camping.... no access to a rack.

    7/16/2017 Sunday
    Before I showered from my wilderness adventure, I did the suspended bar arc and then start at the top press with a doll rod (2 lbs), 10 arcs 10 presses.
    Got some relief... did not want to over do it.

    7/17/2017 Monday +3 from prior worksets
    Skipped my normal 4 minute trampoline/cardio/circulation routine for:
    3lbs 10xarcs 10xpresses
    4lbs 10xarcs 10xpresses
    5lbs 10xarcs 10 presses

    Felt better with each rep.
    PM
    6lbs 10xarcs 10 presses
    7lbs 10xarcs 10 presses
    8lbs 10xarcs 10xpresses

    SQUAT (232.5) 0x5 50x5,5,5 It is a long way from a two wheel squat to a bar and 2x2.5's.

    DEAD (265) 135Xx5 185x3 260x5 Body weight - 10

    Feel like I need to be cautious with the dead lift. Seams like the only lift I can do heavy, can't afford to push the envelop there too much. Really need that shot of growth factor to heal all my other ouchies.

    This being my third torn rotator cuff, all on the right shoulder, I'm much better at the rehab. I think this time I'll throw in some real low ball benches early instead of waiting until 75 or 80 pounds. I think I'll continue the 3 sets of one pound increments twice a day until about 45 pounds, then I'll figure out where to go.

    So two days from an injury like that, my right arm is almost "operational" for every day life. So, you gotta like that. Rip's rehab video is great.

    You will be tested. Pass the test.

    Sorry to hear about your torn rotator... I suspect I've done the same recently. Would you happen to have a link to the rehab vid you pertained to? I've been taking Ibuprofen to reduce inflammation and icing the affected area. Seems to be working albeit slowly.

    Rip's rehab for rotator cuff surgery.

    Shoulder Rehab | Mark Rippetoe

    Just finished "Good Calories, Bad Calories" - Gary Taubes great info... dry as salted cardboard
    Began "Keto Clarity" - by some guy with a blog... much lighter listen but some good info
    Decided that being morbidly obese sucked.
    Rip says losing weight is a fools errand.
    I'm just the fool for the job.
    Going Keto, soreness be damned, I can barely lift anything anyway... seems like a good time.

    FELL DEEDS AWAKE!

    AM
    Bench 7,8,9 (pounds) x5 (single set) (guessing my 1" doll rod 5' long is about 2#)

    PM
    TRC 42,43,44# x5

    AM
    TRC 22,23,24 x5 (-27# from last lift...@#$%)
    bench 7,8,9# x5 (-10# surprised I could do that at all... warmed up with just the 2# bar and thought I dry more)
    Squat 45x5 felt real bad... bad depth
    Scheduled Dead lift... can wait until tomorrow

    TRC 57x5,5,5 (57#, 3 sets of 5)
    SQUAT 2x5,5 45x5,5,5 forced knees out more, first set that has felt good in a while
    DEAD 135x5 185x3 262x5 (damn near body weight... hoping going up 1# on the bar, and down 1 or 2 on the scale will have me there in 3 days!!!)

    Moral of the Story:
    - don't tear your rotator cuff
    - don't re-injure your rotator cuff
    - don't get quad tendinitis
    - SLEEP BETTER
    - when all else fails... do more dead lifts

    Friday 2/28/2017 Weight: 263.6
    Started feeling like I'd added too much volume as the weight moved up slowly. Probably only do 3 sets of 5 on both lifts.

    TRC 58x3


    Saturday 2/29/2017 Weight: 264.1

    Bench 45x3

    *** injured the shoulder later in the day. I've got to take better care of myself. Damn.

    Sunday 3/30/2017 Weight 263.8

    Sore as hell. Decided to go 5 min Airdyne slow, then a set of TRC (torn rotator cuff movements from video).

    TRC 22,32,42,42,42,42,42,22,2 x5
    50 minutes or so of airdyne.

    So much for saying I wouldn't overdo volume. I had been up to 57# just before reinjury.
    Other than the soreness, I'm feeling real good.

    8/2/2017 Wednesday
    Tried some kettlebell swings. 25#x20 for 5 sets. Wondering about weight / volume.


    8/3/2017 Thursday Weight: 261.4 (-3.0)

    Bench 45x5 50x5,5,5 +5 felt good
    SQUAT 2x5,5 45x3 85x5,5,5 +20 (5RM 232.5)
    DEAD 135x5 185x3 264x2,0 +1 (5RM 265) Body weight 261.4 *** First Body Weight Dead lift ***
    TYMR, TY Sully, TY Chris Curio

    Deads had been going up real well on the +1# incr, will back off some on the kettlebells.
    I felt good, been sleeping well. Lot of stress at work.
    Cut back on carbs, not on protein. So I am in Ketosis some.
    Hope I can keep making 20# jumps on the squat to about 180... we'll see.
    Squats felt real good. I think my prior problem was knees tracking in too much.

    DEAD 135x5 185x3 264x0 260x0 245x1 may be the end of my twice a week dead lifts. Was really gassed

    new kettlebell 35x10

    too many reps, especially squats. But need to get this back up to the point where it "counts".
    I will find more gas!
