Update on Downtime

by Mark Twain on 12-06-2013 at 09:28 AM
Dont want anyone to think I fell off the earth's edge, so I am posting a little update.
The right shoulder has been getting steadily worse, and interferes with sleep as well as training. This is unacceptable. The pain has started increasing and radiating into the back of the shoulder and even down my arm a little. On top of that my pain free ROM in raising my arm has decreased. Its not to the point of not being functional in my daily life, but it is definitely affecting my lifting life.

Year 66, session 1, max

by Mark Twain on 11-24-2013 at 09:23 AM
Well after a evening of overeating at Red Lobster wif the missus, I am paying the price. You know the scene, like a feast in a medieval castle. More food! More drink! What's that guy eating? Brontosaurus leg! Bring me two of them! More food and drink!
I am exaggerating a little, but when I got on the scale this morning it did not seem that way- 225! Thats 4 lbs in 2 days. Not quite lean an mean.
So I have been thinking of maxing for a while. The last time was May 23 this year.
