Blueballs from hell doesn’t sound pleasant! Recover well mate.

Cheers guys @duketheslaya @Irishman92

At one point it felt like being kicked in the balls. Would not reccomend, unless you’re into that kind of stuff mate :joy:

@MarkKO @khangles @T3hPwnisher

Hope you guys don’t mind the tag

So I’ve got four weeks with minimal loading of the core following a fairly simple surgery affecting abdominals. Following this, I’m planning on adding two weeks to build up some volume on my abs and lower back.

My plan is to do the low intensity, medium volume deload from 531/JM in the first week and then the high intensity/7th week deload from forever to test where my strength is at. From there I’ll adjust TMs as needed and restart this wave of Juggernaut.

Does that sound reasonably intelligent, guys?


#567

Reasonably intelligent post surgical training isn’t something I can speak to, as I always do things stupidly. Haven’t tried any of those approaches specifically to be able to vouch for them. Sorry to not have much help here.


#568

All good, thanks for replying!


#569

I have no experience coming off surgery so I’m hesitant to really say yes or no. It sounds sensible enough, so I guess as long as you’re careful it should be OK.


#570

Fair enough, I’m mostly just checking if what I proposed is a good way to re-introduce volume and barbell lifts.


#571

It’s as good as any in that case I suppose.


#572

Double check with your surgeon or whichever health professional is your point of contact lest your guts explode out lel.


#573

Probably wouldn’t be an ideal result


#574

So yeah today’s training was pretty awful. Most of it was spent figuring out what I can/can’t do and weights. Not too fussed recording it since it was just a feeler session.


#575

Probably should update my log. Ugh.

I’m starting to figure out a good set-up, as well as movements that work well. So far I’ve hit some rep pr’s on dumbbell presses, and I’m running out of bands to do TKEs with, so I guess things are going alright.

PS: the boys are fine
