Foot update and a new employee hits the gym
I went to the foot Dr for my week after surgery follow up. He took the bandahes off and I saw what he did for the first time. There is about a three inch cut and about thirty stitches on the side of my foot. Of course I took a photo of it but it looks like the creature from the black lagoon's foot so I'll spare you the agony of seeing it. He told me to spend another week on the crutches and then I could start walking in one of those boots. He asked me if I had one of the boots and I said, "As a matter of fact I do, and it looks exactly like a sneaker". He basically face palmed and just said I was on my own. Let me break down the way recovery works in Stevey P's world:
Doc says two weeks on crutches, no weight bearing. This means five or six days on cructhes then some weight bearing.
Doc says after two weeks you can walk in a boot for two weeks. This really means I put my regular sneakers on and continue with normal activity except heavy squatting.
Doc says after six weeks you can start lifting weights again. Too late doc, I never stopped and plan to be back to full domination by six weeks.
Doc says see you back in six months for the next surgery moron. I say "Thanks buddy" see you soon.
Today I dominated a bit of a cannonball deltoids:
Seated front press: worked up to 6 heavy sets of 8, backed down 2 sets with higher reps.
Rear delt raise supersetted with band pulls: 5 sets 12 reps each
Side raises: 5 sets of 12
Dumbbell curls: 6 sets
Preacher curl machine: 6 drop sets
I decided it's time to free myself from the confines of the front desk at the gym a little and I hired another part time girl. Say hi to Rizelyx Rivera, my new super fiesty Latino counter girl, who also happens to be the national weighting champion and american record holder in the 58kg class. So she is an great addition to the gym and fits in really well so far. For some reason the site wont let me post a photo today or I would put the photo I took of her here. Bogus!
