Okay, here is the back story to this post. Back in April I tore my shoulder and my pec at work, the doctors sent me back to work and the gym. My gym progress halted and started to decline, and I had major shoulder pains, so I stopped lifting. In June I started physio, and I was sent back to the gym in July for 3 weeks, that was a bad move.
They have now sent me back to the gym again, and things are going good, actually they are going a little TOO good. I have had 2 lifting sessions since they sent me back, I have lost weight, size and energy over the months, which was expected.
So I am trying to ease myself back into the lifestyle. Taking it easy has never been my style in the gym, but I tried to keep the intensity in check, I failed. In each of these 2 sessions I have hit PR’s.
I pushed 315x6 on the Rack Lockouts, previous best was 280x3
And I pushed 110lb dumbells for dumbell press, I was using 100’s before and couldn’t break that barrier for the life of me.
Squat is down 80lbs, deadlift is down, and most of my other lifts are down but not substantially.
After taking that long of a break this is kind of weirding me out. but I kind of like it as well.
What are your thoughts on this fellow T-people?
