    There was a shop near me which sold Power Perfect II so I went for them.
    Lucky SOB.

    Cant find any shops in Sheffield that sell them and I seriously do not want them delivered to my student accom.

    Might get swiped >_>

    Rolled my ankle in hockey today. It's pretty swollen so if it's a sprain I definitely can't squat and might not be able to deadlift for a while
    Sorry to hear that =s ... I would have honestly cried if that had happened to me..

    Went to the doctor today because I could barely walk when I woke up. He said it's a sprain with possible minor ligament damage or something like that, so I'm out of impact stuff for up to 6 weeks. Hoping the emphasis is on the "up to" part.

    Anyway with regard to lifting he said nothing that puts any sort of pressure on my ankle (e.g. standing up exercises) until the pain is all gone, and generally just to be sensible. So here's the plan until I'm good again:

    Workout A:

    Bench
    Leg Press (if i can)
    Accessory work

    Workout B:

    Seated DB Shoulder Press.
    Leg Press (if i can)
    Lying row

    Hopefully I can at least deadlift / military press again within a couple of weeks. As for squats, need to be careful because I've got a ski trip in 5 weeks and really, really don't want to **** up my ankle for that.

    Only got 6 hours sleep and not much food today:

    Bench: 85kg x 5,5,4.

    CGBP 60kg x 9,8,6 can't quite remember how many reps tbh.

    Tried to leg press but it caused some slight pain in my ankle (this was with no weight on) so I'm going to have to give that a miss and see if the machines are any better.

    Pretty unstructured session:

    DB OHP 25kg x 5,5,5.

    Lying down rows 60kg x 5,4.

    DB rows 25kg x 5.

    Leg raise machine thingy.

    Not being able to do anything standing up ****ing sucks.

    That's true, I could go bench / curl mode for a few weeks.

    Anyway no spotter today so another very unstructured session:

    Incline BP 60kg x 10,10,8.

    CGBP 60kg x 5,7,7.

    supersetted with

    Lying down rows 50kg x 5,5,7.

    Some curls.

    Log for a few days ago:

    Incline 62.5kg x 10,10,9.

    Leg extension machine bottom block x lots.

    Hamstring Curl 14th block x 5,5,5.

    Messed around with some LPDs and rows. Might be able to deadlift / press now, going to experiment next time.

    Seated military press: ramping 5x5 up to 60kg. Feels a lot easier than standing.

    DB rows.

    Got a physio appointment on Tuesday, may be able to get back into light squatting / deadlifting / pressing after that. He told me to take absolutely no risks with it though because ankles are very easy to make worse.

    The hardest bit for me is unracking safely. I have to do it BTN because of the way the rack is set up and it's really not supposed to be good for you.

    This has been a while. So I went to see the physio about my ankle and he said I can start lifting again lightly, including squatting as long as it doesn't hurt. However the ROM involved with squat and leg press does hurt my ankle so still can't do that. Going to get back on everything else asap though.

    Bench 80kg x 5. Felt heavy, didn't have a spotter which might be why.
    Deadlift 80kg x 5. Was ok on the ankle.
    Pendlay Rows 60kg x 5.

    Bench 82.5kg x 5,5,5.

    Pendlay Rows 60kg x 5,5,5.

    The pendlay rows made a couple of things pretty clear. Firstly my flexibility has become much worse and secondly my upper back has got a lot weaker. 2 months ago I would have ripped these off the ground as if they were nothing.
