It's a dark day... I "celebrated" the anniversary of it though by having an awesome gym session with some nice PBs so it's not a life ending injury.

Good plan. Depending on the exact injury you could do more or less without having an impact on it...
Pain at thoracolumbar junction when pressed. Sends pain signals down lower back, making the muscles ridiculously tight.
Hopefully proffessor will be able to sort me out!

I'll see how it goes, benching is fine so will take it from there

New routine

A - Leg extension
Bench
Hamstring curl
DB OHP sets of ~8
Dips
Pull ups
Lunges
Misc

B - Leg extension
OHP
Hamsting curl
Chins
Lunges
Some kind of chest
Misc

No leg work on wednesdays I think. Will see how it goes though

This new routine will need altered.. it's damn brutal... made worse by a headache I couldn't shift.. it only came on whilst I was in the gym

Someone had messed up the leg extension machine badly, I had no idea how to reconfigure it as it was so messed up

Leg press
195kg 2 x 15

Bench
20kg 1 x 5
60kg 1 x 5
70kg 2 x 5
80kg 1 x 3
85kg 1 x 1
90kg 3 x 3 PB Would have had maybe 4-3-3 but my spotter was very grab happy so left it at that.
Would normally bench with no spotter but due to lack of plates I couldn't lift the bench high enough with the 15kg plates I was using so at full lockout I could only just drag the bar out.. made reracking difficult. Hence the spotter
80kg 1 x 3

Hamstring curls
62.5 2 x 5 PB
1 x 7 PB

Pull ups
3 x 5
Really felt the lats after benching. Felt good. Bicep pump wasn't so good after these for the rest of the session

DB OHP
10kg DBs 1 x 5
17.5kg DBs 1 x 5
25kg DBs 1 x 8
2 x 6
Horrific having benched... but needs to be done to get my OHP increasing

Lunges
22.5kg DBs 3 x 10
Bloody brutal. Technically its a PB but I used to do walking lunges which is a whole different ball game
Glute and hamstring pain from these is crazy

Cable rows
level 2 1 x 5
level 11 1 x 5
level 13 2 x 8 PB
1 x 10 PB
DIdn't allow for any lower back movement so only a true upper back exercise

Dips - why oh why
BW 1 x 5
+ 25kg 1 x 5
+ 10kg 2 x 5

Thank god that is over!

I think I've pulled a muscle on medial caudal border of my scapula.
Do you know how I know you're a vet?

65kg 1 x 4 PB
75kg 3 x 5 PB
1 x 3
****ing get in, massive PB. Love the movement, it doesn't hurt either of the injuries. ****ing beautiful. The looks on the bros faces who couldn't do them with the 20kg was priceless
Yeah brah. Sick PBs. You're still making great progress overall - sorry to hear about your injury! Doesn't seem to be stopping you.

Because your vocabulary isn't used for 99.9999999999% of species on earth. Your vocab sucks What do you call more towards the bottom?

Also da*** is going on with the hand positioning of skeletons, your lateral for arms/ hands is our medial.

Why? Why you do this?

Thanks
Yeh had it for years, been lifting through the pain since I restarted lifting.. had enough tbh. Just going to make sure I'm sort of muscular balanced for when I'm fixed... then I'm chasing everybody.

Before I'm back, I want you to be well ahead of my PB Squat and DL! Thats 120kg squat and 135 kg DL. You're going to get there and more brah!

Well I'm dealing with a bipedal creature so "more towards the bottom" is very easy for me, you know, with our spines perpendicular to the floor and all.
It's just inferior. The only time I need to worry about rostral/caudal is when thinking about the CNS, since it takes a 90 degree turn when it enters the skull.

Hominids upper limbs have evolved such that they've rotated on their axis (allows for more efficient use for grabbing things) with respect to their tetrapedal ancestors. So the anatomical position for humans has the palm up - compared to the default "palm down" of tetrapods. tfw evolutionary biology.

We use inferior and superior rarely, but thinking about rotating us onto all 4 limbs, we'd use it in the same way inferior meaning more away from a structure. Cranial and caudal are used for positioning towards or away from the head

Interesting, still think it wouldn't have killed medicine to follow veterinary with a palms down approach

Inb4 proof that vet med started doing palms down after medicine

Inferior and superior are used all the time in human anatomy. It literally just means "down" and "up" for us. Rostral/caudal for us is used for the same thing, but in CNS anatomy, its used to mean toward/away from the frontal lobes. Since, again, hominids being weird, our heads have rotated 90 degrees on our necks.

Makes sense to me just because that's when our radius and ulna aren't crossed over!

Wow, can't believe its that long. I promise I will be the mightiest T-rex that TSR has ever seen upon your return.

Tired, cba to go to the gym. Went and kicked arse as per usual

Was worried
90kg 2 x 5 Last reps were grindy as grindy
1 x 4 Failed 5th, had to do the tip of shame. If I had a spotter I would have got it, but I have to pretty much tricep press the bar at full lockout by myself... takes a lot out of my tris before I've even started.. 2.5kg will be added next time

Tbars - testing how it feels. All weight not including bar
20kg 1 x 5
45kg 1 x 5
55kg 1 x 5
70kg 1 x 2
80kg 1 x 2 lol too heavy
65kg 1 x 8
67.5kg 1 x 6
70kg 1 x 5 Not as heavy as I did when I got my PB, but I haven't done anything heavy for my upper back in a while. Will judge how I do these, depending on pain levels later/ tomorrow

Yeah, it sucks with my back, I've got my diet sorted and my technique sorted on the compounds. It takes a while to get it right, however this back thing has just reset me as I'll have to sort it out again if/ when it gets fixed. My squat and DL were rocketing up

My bench is just unreal, it just doesn't stop increasing...

About 3000 calories, had to taper it back a bit as I can no longer cycle or do as much running as I was

Hit my macros, probs go a bit OTT with fat but meh I'll live, I need the full fat milk to get me through the day! I have 500mls of it a day when I have it in, I usually blend a scoop of whey 50-100g of oats, ice cream, a banana or 2 together with the milk to make sure I've eaten enough.

Didn't eat enough yesterday, got DOMS everywhere
