Thanks for all the help everyone. I took my "gym time" yesterday and went to a PT instead. Basically, he told me that I could go "until it hurts." Honestly though, I didn:t like the doc and won:t be going back. He seemed hurried (they were quite busy) and didn:t seem to like when I asked "why?". I may try to find a new one if this injury doesn:t get better.
The leg is getting better daily. I:m a bit frustrated because I was doing so well w/ my workouts and had really found a routine that works and that I had hoped to keep. Instead, I:m dreaming up new workouts... but enough of my frustration.
Here's my plan for this week. I'm writing it up now, so any comments or help would be appreciated.
Day one (Mon): off/doctor
Day 2: Pull
A: Pullups 5x5
B1) DB Bentover rows
B2) DB upright rows 4x12
C1) Bi Curls Preacher bar
C2) hammer curls dbs
D) cable-row and pushup complex suggested by JS above
E) elliptical or bike (depending on what:s open at the gym) 5 min (to see how it feels more than anything else)
Day 3 (W): Push
A) Bench 5x5
B1) Neck Press 3x12
B2) DB flys 3x12
C) Close-grip bench
D) Tabata DB push Press
E) Elliptical if I:m feeling up to it
Day 4 (Thursday)
Gym is closed, so maybe some light DB work at home and/or a walk. Stretch
Day 5: Complexes
Complex A: Preacher bar
Complex B: DBs
The plan is 4x10 w/o rest and maybe 2min between (setup and drink).
Elliptical or bike for 20min if ready.
Day 6: Arms
(specifics to be determined)
Day 7: off and reassess where I am.
