    Went for my initial consultation with the hernia specialist yesterday, big difference when going private vs NHS (I have no problem with the NHS by the way). Was treated really well, offered coffee, even the magazines in the waiting area were up to date. Specialist agreed I needed the surgery - am going to get a date booked on Wednesday. Will be put under general anaesthetic, they will cut under my belly button, seal it with some mesh and I should be good to go home the same day. Recovery time, he advised not to lift anything heavier than 10kg for 4-6 weeks......which sucks, but oh well.

    Didn't get as many as I had aimed for on the 3 + set: Was going for 8-9 reps but it wasn't there today.

    Bodyweight is back up to 100kg, it's been a good Christmas.

    Sorry to hear about the recovery time but good to get it fixed and out of the way.

    Maybe you can get the cardio up while it heals?

    Today was tough, back was slightly achy after yesterday's deadlifts, but got it done.

    Also, have my hernia operation date now - 3rd Feb, so should be able to end this cycle and hopefully hit some PRs before I have to take some time off.

    I had a good friend with a similar hernia and procedure. He's back to lifting heavy and had been since the week after surgery. It sounds all good dude!!!

    A week only would be great, but I'll stick to the dr's recommendations like a good boy. He even said you'll feel fine after a week, but to just give it some extra time.

    Today's "training"

    As mentioned in the pub, my friend turned up nice and eager at 8am for some boxing padwork. He's never done any kind of boxing before so I just took him over very basic combinations and kept the intensity pretty low. We did 22 minutes broken up into rounds with rests inbetween, he was surprised (I wasn't) about how knackered he was. Hopefully we can make it a weekly thing as it was a good excuse to hang out together anyway.

    This afternoon I took my kids out on their bikes and I walked. We did about 3.5 miles in total. Benching tomorrow.

    I'd agree you should play it safe, I went back to wrestling practice a week after my appendectomy and the abdominal wall where the incision was made didn't heal correctly. It still gives me issues from time to time 12 years later.
