Ok damn, it’s been a while since I was here for anything worth a shit, but here goes.
Getting back to the iron this coming Monday with my 27 y/o son. Both of us need a training partner., and his old man happens to know a tad more about the movements and what works what than he does, so it’s a good deal.
Tell ya wat, dang near everything that could’ve gone wrong the past 5 months or so did, from totaling a car, to ER trips, to beginning dealing with migraines, plus a surgery, and one unexpected hospital admission, and a nuerology diagnosis that caught me off guard a bit, but will not slow my ass down.
Ya all have probably heard about people with diabetic neuropathy, where the nerves in their lower legs and feet are FUBAR. Well, I have peripheral nuuropathy, which is about the same damn thing minusthe diabetes (cause I whooped the diabetes’ ass).
They were talking all this crap about how I’d need PT for walking and stuff. Well, I show up to the PT eval. Possilble score of 30, I score 30. Dude says there is no reason or me to have therapy at all. I ask the guy, “so what do you think about me getting back into the gym cause my doctor said I had to wait and see what therapy said?” Dude says, "I would recommend it, just don’t go back at it too hard too fast and hurt yourself.
Well how about that shit?!
Then they decide to test my D & B vitamin levels, which I happen to have been supplementing for over 30 years…of course those came back fine - big surprise there.
So yeh, me and my boy are gonna hit the weight room Monday. I’ll get back to working on my old ass, see what I can do for him, and we will be a happy iron pumping father/son duo. Frickin A.
I am sooooooo damn glad all the tests came back good, all the surgeries, tests, etc are over, and I can get on with going back to a “normal” type life finally again. This bullshit of not going to the gym has about driven me insane, and that ain’t a long drive…
I’m looking for Monday/Wednesday/Friday workout recommends. I’ve got something in mind, but wanna hear waht my boys here have to say?! Let me hear from ya?!
