Have done my first few weeks of lifting since having some shoulder impingement nagging me for quite a while. It actually does still nag me a bit but I am stubborn to get surgery, and actually has been feeling even better since I have been hitting the weights again. Thought I had tore my AC at first (but doc said otherwise,) could barely lift my arm after a day of heavy close grip benching.
I was making great gains using a WS(or should I say conjugate?) type system, but lifting raw and adapting for it. Heading back to a similar routine, but starting slow with the main 4 days (even slower than that the first couple weeks because I took about two years off and have been treating my body badly) and will start working in more extra workouts as I increase my work capacity.
Been two years since I was seriously lifting, but I am really psyched and feeling good atm. Almost forgot how good a post workout high is, and looking to make gains faster than I had previously even though I am 37 (though don’t feel it.) Mostly because the trial and error I already went through on my raw conjugate program will lead to lesser waste in what exercises I choose, knowing what has worked and knowing how to identify my weak points faster.
Anyway I will stop blabbering, not usually a forum person but I thought it would help keep my motivation going chatting with others of like mind. So easy to keep going once you are into it, but extremely hard to motivate once you get lazy, so trying to fend off the lazy.
PS sore as hell from my first heavy deadlift session.
