Thanks and thanks ... though I feel like I'm just ranting on. If you get anything out of what I contribute then all is good. If it is just for entertainment or to pass the time then I'm good with that as well. Thanks again.

Wednesday
Rest and gentle stretching and mobilisation of injured shoulder. Made appointment with physio.

Thursday
200 crunches, 1 set of slow press ups just to see what happened- encouragingly no escalation of discomfort in shoulder

Friday
physio confirms mild damage to supra spinatus (one of the rotator cuff muscles). Ultra sound administered, confirmed the exercises she wanted me to do for it. light weights are ok- total rest is contra indicated. Asked regarding bodyweight work, and she said that would be fine providing I find a chin up grip that is comfortable, and I warm up thoroughly before hand.

We talked about my training leading up to this injury, and her conjecture is that because I have been working with free weights and bodyweight for so long, my recent daliance with machines has forced my joints to work in a ROM unnatural to them, and she feels this may have been the main problem, with the pull on the jammed door being the proverbial straw on the camels back.

Lesson learned. No more machine work for Cord. ever.

Sorry to hear that, Cord. Hopefully you will work through your injury with more sense than I have through some of mine.

Isn't it odd; Cord, Matt and myself have all suffered some type of shoulder injury that has made us adapt as we've gotten older? Is this common in weight lifting ... though I did break my collar bone as a teen, tore my rotator cuff in my late 20's and crushed my vertebrea just last year?

Is it, those that play hard pay hard?

Thats exactly it Dereck. Like it or not, no matter what we do, our bodies are in a cycle of cellular decay from late teens onwards. As you put miles on a car engine, no matter how well serviced it is, it is on the road to the scrap yard sooner or later.
The good thing about exercise is that in most cases our 'engines' last longer and can rev harder because of it, allowing us more time to moan and gripe about our aches and pains.

Forget 'live fast, die young, leave a good looking corpse', I have always preferred 'live fast, die old, take at least 10 of the b4stards with you'

My shoulder is no biggie, its a flare up of bad rotator damage I did in my early 20's. I know the rehab pattern well . Just this morning I have done 5 miles on my bike and 3 supersets of push ups and pull ups, then finished with my specific rehab work. As long as I 'listen' to every rep I should keep out of further trouble.

Here's to playing hard (and chewing glass)

Arrived early to class like always to stretch and prepare, it's grappling day. Went through 4 different finishing moves with Randy who I've always found to be an excellent training partner and is one of the people that helped me to become better through the years by pushing me, and vice versa.

Class started with the Rear Naked Choke (RNC) starting from behind sitting down to standing and using your partners momentum to get behind them to apply it. Then we worked on the Guillatine first to apply and then with resistance. This was followed up with fighting off the Guillatine by our partner standing and straight up and then we become one at the hips and sweep them to the floor. First done lightly then with resistance. All very basic stuff that I've done over and over but we had quite a few newer people in class that needed these basics. Then we worked against each other from standing both resisting and both trying to get the RNC, Guillatine or the sweep. Then class was free rolling for the last 15 minutes.

After class I and three others stayed late to roll around more and then about 15 minutes later it was down to just me and Doug again, like always. We rolled for another 1/2 hour with each other and picked up the pace. With us it is technical but harder and we incorporate punching and light elbows. I like how he starts this, he will say "we shouldn't forget punching" and then thunders me to the ribs ... uggghhh! Not too tender but have some nice marks on my forehead and chin. Love these type of battle scars. Was extremely tired but if he wasn't giving up then I wasn't. He is my best training partner and vice versa ... with the exception of our Instructor.

Monday, October 16, 2006 - Week 417, Day 1096

Barbell Deadlifts = 340 lbs = 4 ... stop
Barbell Rear Calve Raises = 250 lbs = 13/12/12/12/12

I did a big no-no. First at around 7:00 I felt ill and thought I was going to throw up but didn't. I started to feel better so at 8:00 I got on my glider to warm up for 10 minutes. I then went into my lifting and had to stop because my lower back was hurting. I forgot to do my body weight squats and deadlifts, plus I forgot to do a light weight of the deadlifts to get a feel for the correct form. Instead I lifted and it did not feel right so stopped. I was going to try to attempt it again but my back said no and I listened. Stupid ... stupid ... stupid!

I've been on holidays for last week and now this week and let me tell you, it is hard to get motivated to workout even though I'm hanging around home. Usually when I take holidays I also take a break from weight lifting just to re-energize myself but this time I didn't as I had so much of a layoff due to being sick that I didn't think I could afford to. Perhaps I should have but I will plod on ... but smarter. What was I thinking ... or not thinking of?

Dont worry Dereck, things will pick up

I got back in the gym yesterday, working around, and trying to help, my shoulder injury

Monday

1600m ergo rower split time of 1:52, and 32spm
Plate loaded leg press 12,10,7,7 200kg
Press ups (slow and careful) 32, 26, 22
wide grip horizontal bodyweight rows on smith machine (heels on bench) 19, 16, 14
Rear delt raise with outward rotation 5kg dumbells 16, 12, 11
Ergo Rower 400m 1:54 split, 32spm

Felt OK. a couple of twinges here and there, but my shoulder is improving, and this kind of work out will help keep me ticking over till healed.
