Alright, so here's my deal:
Just coming back into the game after a fair bit of time out due to a good healthy shoulder dislocation. My Doc and physiotherapist have finally given me the ok to start exercising again, which couldnâ??t make me happier. After so much time of sitting at home and being depressed over my injury, I look forward to working out again.
Objective of this journal:
I have never been one to keep a serious log of my exercise activities, except for writing down weights in my notebook (when I donâ??t forget it at home). My hope is that through this journal I will be able to accomplish the following:
-To hold myself more accountable for actively participating in a training program
-Provide an accurate method of measuring my progress
-Provide a venue where I can receive feedback or participate in dialogue with other members who might be going through some of the same things as me
Objectives of my routine:
I am an avid rock climber, so strength-to-weight and general fitness levels are important factors to me.
With those in mind, my short-term objectives are as follows:
-Rehabilitate and regain strength with my right shoulder
-Recover lost muscle from time spent resting and recovering
-Return to previous level of fitness pre-injury
My long-term objectives are:
-Increase overall muscle strength and density, while trying to maintain a reasonable strength/weight ratio
-Increase muscle definition (there is always one vanity objective, right?)
-Increase range of exercises to include injury "proofing" or "reduction"
Thatâ??s it for now, will update soon with current stats, photo's, ect.
