Hey everyone. I made a new account because I was in active addiction while I was managing my old one. I have 42 days of clean time from all substances behind me today and I even quit smoking cigarettes/vaping. Therefore, I’m sober and lifting - this is round #2.
At any rate, I’m 5’9", 180 pounds. Haven’t squatted since the gym started enforcing masks, rather I’ve been deadlifting pretty exclusively. I’m ready to start again with everyone here, even though you all know me as the crazy fuck that rants online. I apologize for my previous account, I don’t remember most of what I said nor do I want to. I was…bad. But I’m getting better day by day and I’m lifting weights again, which helps with the bipolar depression I still experience. Going to make things stick this time around.
Workout #1 after 3 months hiatus:
135 x 5
225 x 3
275 x 3
315 x 11 (dead-stop beltless PR)
355 x 2 (stiff-legged rep #2 and I have sore erectors, but the heavier reps felt good, and my back will adapt)
That’s all I did today, just wanted to test the waters and I’m happy I am still fairly strong.
Missed everyone here but I wasn’t in a good enough mental space to post. Will call this log to the attention of @j4gga2 @T3hPwnisher @flappinit @EmilyQ @strongmanbrett for yet another go around the block.
Sorry if I forgot you, I hope the word spreads that I’m no longer a supremely negative influence on this community. I have said some pretty fucked up shit on these forums for no reason at all, but they have me reasonably stable and complete sobriety helps that along. Glad to be back in the game, it felt really great to lift weights and have breath in my lungs today.
