Sorry guys for the total lack of updates from me. I trained last week, on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. You've already seen Monday and Tuesday. Wednesday was, quite possibly, my worst day in the gym I can remember. i did manage to set 2 PRs however. Injuries.
Started with the standard warmup, and proceeded to box jumps. Was jumping on a 37" box. On what was literally the last jump, I missed it, and fell off, landing on my shit arm. My elbow still feels like shit, and my shoulder makes a grinding noise that wasn't there before. It hurts too. Injury number one.
You will see it on the next Team Awful video for sure. WAS BRUTAL.
After a few minutes to get the feeling back in my arm/hand, went ahead and continued on to deadlifts. Started at 135, and worked up to 705. Was going to try to pull it for a couple of reps. About knee high on the first rep, my grip went, and something in my back popped. Injury number 2. At this point, I just quit for the day.
Thursday, the back literally kicked my ass, from the time I woke up. It didnt feel bad, when i woke up. Got up to piss and get a dip, and as soon as I stood up out of bed, it locked up and literally put me on the floor. Awesome. NOT. gimped around in pain all day until about 330 that afternoon. Went over to IFAST, where a buddy of mine, Mike Robertson works. For those of you who aren't aware of Mike, you should be. He is a rehab/corrective guy, and his stuff is AMAZING. He and his partner Bill Hartman were a HUGE help to me when my hips were so jacked up, and I figured that perhaps he could help with my back. He did. After about 20 minutes of talking, "ghetto" ART (his term), and some lacrosse ball work, I went from being able to bend over to where I could touch my knees with my finger tips (about 6" ROM) to being able to touch my toes with minimal discomfort. He also told me that I have done something to my QL, and should be better in about 2 weeks. So thats what I have been dealing with here. Good times.
