    I’m still recovering from a trimeollar ankle fracture and dislocation but I broke the 1000lb thing last week. That was a big goal for me since I couldn’t walk for 5 months.

    Right now, I want to place well in some XC ski races (got 3rd in a 50k ski race Christmas Day), do some snowmobile racing, and be in awesome shape for Dall sheep hunting season in August.

    I’m walking around at 6’4 200lbs, didn’t gain any weight while injured but this was a serious injury, I feel pretty sluggish from the time off. I’m an old man (39) so healing is slow. We’ll see, just over 50 days until the American birkibiner ski race.

    Fucking injuries man, fuuuuucking injuries. December 18th 2017 I was out hunting with a buddy, we’d been out all day and it was about 4:30 so it was getting dark (Alaska), we were just walking back to the truck on a trail that people had been driving 4x4s on, it had also rained the day before and then the temps dropped to -10f so everything was icy. I slipped on the rut in the trail from the 4x4s twisting my ankle to the point that I dislocated it and broke 3 bones in it. Foot was basically dangling off to the side....total freak accident.

    Due to weather and the remote location we were hunting, it was 36 hours before I could get to the hospital in anchorage, had an emergency surgery to get my foot back in alignment and put a metal cage on my leg to hold the ankle in place. Swelling was so bad that I had to basically be flat on my back with my foot up for the next month before they could finally do surgery to put screws and a plate in my ankle to bolt me back together, 20 weeks of no-weight-baring.....

    Was pretty shitty. Luckily I have good insurance. Anyways, I broke 1000lbs last week and had a good showing in a fairly competitive ski race so things are good but yeah fuck injuries. I was on crutches and a wheelchair for almost half a year.

    Weighted Chin Ups: 3 x BW+90 to 3 x BW+100
    Bench: 275 to 315
    Squat: 315 to 405
    Trap Deadlift: 450 to mid 500s
    Press: 185 to 225

    Improve my boxing.
    Improve my BJJ.

    Above all: remain injury free. (lower back injuries plagued my in the last few years)

    Can't fucking believe it. I got so fucking bitter and frustrated at myself and I acted like an ass in this thread. @LatFlare , I want to apologize for behaving inappropriately in your thread. It was inexcusable, and I will own it.

    The thing that sucks the most about injuries is that it can be seriously demotivating or in the worst case scenario, can leave a giant void in your life - a void that was once filled in with a habit or routine that took years and hard work to develop. Most of the time, I would train through these injuries that weren't serious enough to debilitate me, but frustrated me nonetheless with the extra pain they brought. In my younger days, when I took time off from training, I would fill in said void with nonsensical activities that did nothing but waste my time and/or money e.g. gambling and chasing pussy. I just thank my lucky stars that I never took up drugs or alcohol.

    Now I've got to quit cigarettes for good. And deflecting blame by lashing out at innocent people.

    Yup, Smokey pot and drank liquor while laying on the couch and watching Netflix and amazon prime.

    You are right, it’s not the pain but filling the time and motivation.

    Read this book (It's also available on Audible). I can't overstate how effective it was for me (and many other people I know). I'm now a non-smoker (as opposed to a smoker who doesn't smoke).

    As my username suggests, I'm in a different place to many of you.

    In 2018, I went from being completely sedentary to running 5k. I lost 18lbs. I've been regularly exercising for 3 months, which is the most consistent I've been for over a decade (so an achievement for me).

    In 2019, my goals are:

    - Maintain consistency, I'd be happy with weekly exercise of any form
    - Bring my 5k time to under 27 mins (currently 32:10)
    - Lose an additional 20lbs of fat
    - Reduce alcohol consumption. From current approx 10 pints per month, to <2 pints per month.
    - Start lifting weights around my 35th birthday in July.

    I took a powerskating course last year and it was extremely helpful. I also made time to go practice what I had learned on other days by playing pickup hockey and stick and puck. I’m still not very good, but wayyyy better than I was.

    I’ve looked into lessons, looked at the wrong time, however, as the start times run adjacent to the hockey season. Will have to look into March or April for lessons.

    Improve all oly lifts by 10-20%
    Improve squat by 10%
    Improve VO2 max by 5-10%
    Be diligent and consistent at work
    Coach at least 10 clients outside work
    Put up on average one post on instagram a week
    Organize website and make it publicly avaliable
    (somehow cure/improve neck issue)

    Good goals! Not unrealistic and very specific, go for it man! If you cut regular alchohol consumption out it'll be so much easier.

    I second this

    I quit smoking using this book
    Prob tried around 8 times over a few years to quit, patches, gum, tablets...all failures
    Read the book....never have I had one puff since, not one
    Yeah it was hard and yup I was a complete arrogant fucking asshole for about 3 weeks but I didn't give a crap
    I'm cigarette free, have been for 3 years this Feb
    Would never touch them again, they absolutely stink and tbh I look at it now like I cannot believe I ever did it
    This is a 20 year smoker too
    It also lead to healthier eating, healthier lifestyle.

    Buy the book
    Do what it says and do it how it says it
    Fuck everyone else, fuck the moods
    Just do it
    It will be the best thing you've ever done to quit the stupid habbit, because you're actually smoking to put your body in to the same status as a nonsmoker.......so your brain is already telling you that you shouldn't smoke, now you just gotta listen to it
