It’s a ghost!
Man, I’ve been through a lot since you started your hiatus. It looks like you stopped logging back in February of '18, so I’ll start there.
After my hip rehab, I began training normally in late March of 18. In June I hit new PRs or matched old ones on the big three lifts. Deadlift - 545, squat - 370, bench - 305
My shoulder started getting cranky and my conditioning was crap after that program so I tried some CrossFit type stuff for a bit. The first time I did front squats I had pain in my hip again. I still battle that now, but that derailed the rest of 2018 for me. Everything was trial and error, rest, modifications, etc. I didn’t really have a solid approach to my training.
I tried my last ever bulk last year. I was 217 when I had hip surgery in Dec 2017. I topped out at 250 in October. I’m now 210-213. I don’t know if I added any muscle, but once I started cutting I couldn’t stop until I reached the physique you can now see in my avatar.
In October (when I was 250), I dunked while playing basketball and had a pop in my shoulder. It turns out that I subluxed my biceps tendon in my right shoulder. It wouldn’t stay in the groove anymore so I had surgery June 5th. Tomorrow marks the nine weeks point of my rehab for that. I’m on light duty at work and still unable to lift with my right arm. The summer has just been a maintenance program of legs, left arm, and cardio on the machines.
That pretty much covers everything in a nutshell. I just started a new Challenge in the Bigger Stronger Leaner thread. It’s a commitment challenge. Pick a program and run it from September through the end of the year. It’s for people like me who have training ADD.
Welcome back! Hope all is well. I saw a post about a shoulder surgery in the T-ransformation thread from '18. Hopefully you’re all healed up with no long standing issues. I think I also saw a post about a new job and moving?
Edit: I saw your replies in Duke’s log. Livin in Florida temporarily and healed up from a shoulder debridement, but not training. I just tagged you on Instagram. I’ll be doing Ryan Fischer’s High Intensity Interval Bodybuilding stuff. It looks like I’m going to puke a lot, but it’ll be good for me. If brutally hard training is your thing then I’d be happy to have you “train with me” starting around September 10th.
