alright alright ALRIGHT I'm back in the game.

Yesterday was the first true workout in about three weeks.

1) Weighted pullups
5 sets (80#, 60#, 35#, 35#, 35#)

2) Bent over rows
3x135#

3) Superset barbell shrugs w/ KB swings
275x20-25 w/ 14

4) Barbell curls
2x70 regular grip
2x70 inner grip

5) Running
Mile @ 6:00
2 min walk
Mile @ 6:00
2 min walk
0.5 mile @ 3:00
2 min walk
0.5 mile @ 3:00

My pullups have definitely gotten weaker since I've been avoiding them because of my right rear shoulder injury. I was at 100lb weighted pullups for 10 reps last summer, and now I'm at like 8 with 80lbs. Bummer.

And here I am thinking my 90# pullup for one rep was good.

Yes, but I'd probably be in better shape if I weren't.

Hey, havent posted here in a long time, been dealing with injuries for over a year. Overextended my ACL (or possibly tore, couldn't get a conclussive diagnosis), which healed and I was given the ok the lift again but the pain was still present. Turns the lack of stability for the ACL injury result in a torn miniscus (cartilage) behind my knee cap, and it occassionally will grind against my leg bones. Its somewhat manageable though and I'm been working my way through it and getting back into lifting over the last 3 or so months. Sad thing most of main lifts are down 30-50 lbs despite me maintaining a good diet, and I've lost a good amount of weight too.

My problem at the moment is my scheduling around work. I'll regularly have 4 consecutive 12+ hour shifts in a row leaving my no time or energy to lift. I've been on a full body routine and getting in two days while im off and managing to get in one during the work week, but lately in hasn't been possible, and I can't see myself making gains from twice a week. I'm considering switching to a split.

My current routine is:

Deadlift
Bench
row
Db press
Ez curls


Squat
Oh press
In db press
Db row
Skulls

HST style, increase weight each week, increase sets as you can do less reps, 4 x 12, 3 x 10, 4 x 8, 5 x 5.

Now I'm thinking of switching it up to this, so I can work out consecutively on my days off and try to get in at least 3 and week and 4 if possible.

In Bench
dbell bench
close grip
overhead
skulls
flyes

squat
deadlift
bb rows
tbar/db rows
curls
forearm/ab work

Just wondering, why do you do your rows with such low weight?

1) So I can have good form, focus on the flexion, and work on the mind-muscle connection
2) I have a rear shoulder injury that's caused me to stop doing rows for months, and stop heavy rows entirely

Makes sense. I was just wondering because you do super heavy weighted pullups, but relatively light rows. I'll get maybe 6-8 reps with 45# on pullups, but keep form on 225# rows.

I started a cycle of Ipamorelin today. Going to add in Mod GRF 1-29 as well.

So there's something wrong with my barbell's sleeves (or something else entirely). I have no idea how to shrink the image so...

I've tightened the bolts and such, but not sure why the inside ring is starting to poke out. Anyone have any ideas? It's been gradual, and I'm not sure how good I feel about using it

Sorry, I have no idea why your barbell is having an anal prolapse

GL. I've considered using GHRP-6, but have read it can cause issues with people who have gyno. Since im about 90% positive I already have gyno, I don't want even puffer nips than I already have haha

Just been focusing on bench and accessory work lately; my backs been feeling too fucked up to squat and I've been trying to get it back to 100% so I can work on my deadlift again.

Probably just gonna see a chiropractor about it, assuming I can get in contact with one.

Probs not. I initially looked into it to see if taking it would help with my issue, but seeing how it's the exact opposite ill just end up staying away.


Really what I need to do is go to the doctor and get it confirmed. Just can't make myself do it

Ipamorelin doesn't increase prolactin levels or affect the body's test/estrogen levels. It's basically GHRP-6 without the negative sides.
