    Today I did a walk-out.

    Walked about 10 mins, did some dips on a style, walked a bit futher, climbed a tree, walked a bit futher, did some pull-ups on a tree, walked a bit futher, did some overhead presses using a picnic bench to put my feet on, did some one leg squats sitting on the table with with feet on the seat (still need some assistance from hands), hung from a shelter to do some hanging leg raises, and so on and so forth, at the end did some head stands and crow stands on the grass and did some stretching before walking home.
    You know all those pictures of Adam and Eve where they have belly button? Think about it..................... take as long as you need........................

    I got something similar a couple weeks ago...upper left ribcage. I found pushups difficult for a while, and sneezes still make me groan. Rich is right, laughing was tough on me for a few days...which is a bummer, because I usually laugh a lot. Best wishies for your quick recovery! Gelatine, anyone?

    I decided on a simple routine of daily bodyweight squats and kettlebell swings. I'll ride my bike a few times a week and try to start walking (my biggest hurdle...I just never have liked walking) and when I get a barbell set I'll do heavy deadlifts and a standing press (using a hang power clean to get the barbell to my shoulders). All of this is basically a maintenance routine while I try to improve my diet. At some point I may do a structured program like Starting Strength but at my current weight of 400 lbs, I'm limited in what I can do.

    Starting Strength is actually perfect for someone who's limited in what he can do. I know someone who started squatting a closet rod (weighs about a pound) and then progressed by zip-tying 2.5 pound plates to it. If you can do a bodyweight squat to depth, you can do Starting Strength. And there's a lot of knowledgeable people here who I'm sure would be willing to give you help and advice with questions or if you run into trouble. I say go for it!

    You know exactly how I feel. Hurts to get up from bed, to laugh and to sneeze.
    Doc said 3 weeks. I was thinking of getting back to squat rack in a week. Thanks for your warning. I will wait it out.
    Few but ripe.

    Finally decided to do a workout without attention to cadence. Gives another value measurement to gauge progression.

    Chins + 70 x 6 Drop set to BW x 7

    Dips + 70 x 7 Drop set to BW x 8

    Leg Press 330 x 10 Drop set to 270 x 8

    Squat
    235x5
    250x5
    265x5

    Dips
    230(BW+15)x5x3

    Chinups
    225(BW+10)x5x3

    I'm really enjoying 5/3/1 with only the "5" and "1" weeks. My lifts aren't that great, but they're going up steadily.
    In matters of style, swim with the current. In matters of principle, stand like a rock.

    Today was a much needed rest day. Planning on playing pickup basketball tomorrow and then hit the weight room.
