    Reincarnation of an old rotator cuff injury presenting as Infraspinatus/Teres Minor weakness & pain. Had a new set of Xrays taken last week. I see the ortho on Thursday for an evaluation and most likely a referral for an MRI: could be a tendon tear.

    Hoping the Dr. will give me cortisone on Thursday. I just have to get through this meet next week. But, cortisone is contraindicated in the event of a tear, so we'll see.

          • Yesterday was 13.1 miles in 1:21:41. After I've got this next marathon out of the way I'm going to back off on the running for a bit and ask you guys how to work on building some strength. I'm looking forward (kind of) to all the eating.

            • leg press 3x10
              leg extensions 3x10
              leg curls 3x10
              OHP 115x3x10
              lateral raises 3x10
              hanging leg raises 3x10
              sauna 2x10

              Weight really don't matter on the machines. Suffice to say the last set of 3x10 was to near fail. Just getting some work in right now really.

              • Yesterday:

                BP/Neutral grip PUs supersets. 10 rounds.

                BP: 2x10@135, 1x5@185, 225x4,4,3,3,3, 2x9@185

                PUs: just bodyweight, 4x8, 6x6 = 68 total.

                Finished up with some dips and DB curls.

                Fighting a cold or allergies or something so I wasn't feeling 100%. Got thru everything but it all seemed more difficult than usual.

                      Nice job getting upper 3-hundos for rep work Rich. I remember not too long ago you were shooting for a 405 single. Well beyond that now.

                      Smolov base mesocycle week 3 day 1

                      4 x 9 @270
                      Completed all reps with relative ease. For the sets of nine I'm still getting quite out of breath. I'm getting better pacing myself and taking some time to breath with the barbell on my back. Excited to see what the rest of the week will be like after starting off on a good foot.

                      Then, 5 sets:
                      Reverse hyper x 12
                      Strict pull up x 6

                      I have not used the reverse hyper machine much previously but it's been a godsend for getting through this program. Tweaked my low back playing beer league softball last night (getting old is awesome) and these helped monumentally. Gonna bench tomorrow and get in some conditioning.

                        Godly Strong! (or is it ungodly?)

                        Drove an hour to the VA, for a 10 minute consult with the ortho regarding my shoulder. He ordered an MRI to be scheduled sometime within the next 10 days. He said he won't treat me with cortisone prior to reading the MRI. So what did I do in response? I went to the gym and benched at him, naturally.

                        BP Paused

                        Quick warm-up to:

                        200x2

                        205x1

                        210x1 (Had my doubts about this weight. Slowest rep in history, but managed to hit it with a legitimate pause)

                        On a pain scale of 10, shoulder was about a 7.

                        If I can hit 210 in the meet, I'll be satisfied.

                        This clip magically appeared in my phone today. I shot it a few weeks ago and thought I had botched the download somehow.

                        Anyway, LB Skwaatz at 210. Close stance with flat soles elevated on 10 lb plates. Consistency is still an issue here. Apologize in advance for the vertigo.

                          • Core/joint mobility
                            8x8 V-bar pulldowns
                            First four sets supersetted with push dominant air bike
                            Second four sets supersetted with pushdowns

                            Calves
                            Stretch

                            Sticking with this set up of one main movement and one extra (a way of filling up the breaks between the main lift sets) though today I did air bike and pushdowns in between pulldown breaks.

                            Throw in calves every so often and stretch and go home.

                              • After taking a week off and being on vacation, I started back where I left off in SS.

                                Squat: 3x5 @ 92.5
                                Bench: 3x5 @ 72.5
                                Rows: 3x5 @ 55

                                I will more than likely keep the squat weight for 2-3 more workouts. If I don't, I know I won't be able to progress.
