    Kneehab
    Bike 12mins

    Row 6x4x75
    3x10x50
    Top neutral grip

    OHP 3x5x80
    1x8x65
    1x6x65

    Skullcrushers 3x8x35

    Pullups 6,4,4

    C2 rower 200m, 200m, 300m

    OHP is improving form wise for me, been doing alot of shoulder dislocates along with my knee rehab stuff. I think it's working because I am getting closer to a proper rack position and the motion feels more fluid.

    Benching without any leg drive took alot off of my bench, weak though it may be regardless.

    First time on the C2 rower, one legged for now. This thing is awesome and the only thing I can think of to get any cardio in for now. People do look at me like I'm insane with one leg sticking out on it though, haha.

    Kneehab
    12 min bike

    Facepulls 3x20x40

    Leg press 3x10x140

    After several days in a row of biking I can finally get on and do a full rotation without 10mins of warm up. This feels good. The machine doesn't recognize my presence though, and wants me to "pedal faster" to actually turn on fully. I find this comical. :icon_neut

    Bench 3x5x152

    CSR 6x4x80

    Curlzz 3x8x45
    +2-3 lb next time

    Rear delt flye 3x15x55

    Facepulls 3x20x40

    Getting some elbow flare on the concentric portion of my bench, is this the kind of form issue that requires a drop in weight in order to fix? I'm only increasing my bench by 2 and 3 lb increments right now so maybe I can try to fix it as I go...

    Kneehab*
    bike 13min

    CSR 6x4x85
    3x10x50
    Overhand grip

    OHP 3x5x82
    1x10x65

    Skullcrusher 3x8x45
    Miscounted and went up 10lbs today

    Pullups 7,4

    OHP was easy today, I think progressing in these smaller increments is going to allow me to get over 100 without trouble. Short term goal for this lift is 135. 115-120 is more likely before I stall again however.

    *Skipped the last two days of PT for my knee because of a scare. I extended it being a retard and throwing something, my sock stopped on the concrete and it pulled on my hamstring and hurt like a mofo. Pain in front of my knee ever since. Thought I tore my meniscus. My therapist wasn't worried however so I'm relieved somewhat, gonna try to be less dumb in the future.
    She also shot down my aspirations at using the C2 rower, and didn't want me trying to do any aerobic exercise.

    08-17-2010. Bw: 187

    Kneehab*
    Bike 14mins
    Moved up one notch closer to 12

    Leg press 3x10x150

    Facepulls 3x20x40

    Plate pinch 1min x 2 10lb plates x 2

    Been lazy with levering, gonna try and do it regularly like I said I would.
    At my current gym they have chalk and chains, which is cool. However it is funny as hell to see young kids load the bar to 65 and put on the chains. It is apparently an integral part of their hour and a half bench routine.

    Looks like I'm losing some weight which sucks, but makes sense because my right leg is now half the size of my left. Haven't been eating as much in general because I can't really do shit all day. At least I'm running good on full tilt lately.

    great log!

    "Kneehab" - fantastic. And thanks for ideas and inspiration - my PT told me I was doing too much (s/p meniscus repair, 1. July). I like your creativity and am going to borrow some of those sets!

    thanks again!

    Wishes for a speedy recovery,
    W

    @Wikinger -
    Thanks for the kind words. Good luck on your recovery as well, how long is the recoop time on a meniscus op? For my acl I wont be able to squat for at least 2 more months, no idea when any weights are allowed yet. Oh well, I wont mind some bigger gunzzz. :icon_chee Kneehab, ha, I stole that from another log because I liked it. Thanks bigjohn.

    From today:
    08-18-10 bw:184

    Kneehab
    Bike 15 min

    Bench 3x5x155
    5,3,5,3
    Didn't keep back tight on second set, poor concentration. Third set was fine so I did an extra three reps at the end of the set, and I'll continue the progression next time.

    CSR 6x4x90

    Rear delt flye 3x15x60

    Thank you 89vision! You have inspired me to get off my ass and do something.

    I stuffed my knee (end of an mma fight) and had an arthroscopy done 2 weeks ago where they discovered I completely ruptured my ACL, trying to get the swelling down and some range of motion back before I see the specialist again and hopefully be able to get ACL recontructive surgery soon so I can get back into mma next year.

    I have always been active and this is so hard not being able to do anything. I am going to try something similar to your workouts (am doing it at home so will have to modify it slightly).

    Thank you so much! Good luck with your rehab. Looking forward to watching your progress on your blog. Keep up the great work.

    hey!

    I'm restricted until mid sept, which is 2.5 months of recovery. I've had a history of overdoing it when coming back from (minor) injury, so we're being more strict.

    suns out. get those gunzos out!

    @wikinger You're almost there, good luck. I'm still one crutch'n it.

    @cosmic Poor luck with your ACL, not a joyful experience. I was going (and still am a little) stir crazy because of all the nothing. It is what it is, so just gotta let the healing happen.



    From tonight:

    08-19-2010 Bw:190

    Kneehab
    Bike 15 min

    Curlz 3x8x47

    Dead hang 50sec
    Threw this in so I could get some extra stretching for my shoulders and a little grip work. Only made it 50 seconds was going for a minute, weeaaaaakkk.

    Moved the bike up another notch. I now resemble a person on a bike instead of laying back and wincing at each revolution. I can also peddle fast enough to turn the machine on..... Progress!!

    Curlz because I didn't have time yesterday, and since they are obviously the most important thing in my routine I had to catch up!

    My weight is up 7 lbs from yesterday, probably because I drank at least 7 white Russians last night. It's kinda like alcoholic GOMAD, 150-250 kcal per drink not counting vodka, if you are going to drink why not get some heavy cream in there? :icon_lol:

    Kneehab
    Bike 16min

    CSR 6x4x95
    2x10x50

    OHP 3x5x35lb dumbbells


    Skullcrusher 3x8x50
    None

    Pull ups
    None


    Gym closes early on Fridays, i forgot and got there too late. Curl monkey/cell phone jockey was in the squat rack so I couldn't set up a seat to do BB OHP. The rack is the only place I can rack/load the bar alone, and do this safely without dropping shit on my leg. DBells felt unsafe, both picking them up, and in case I failed a rep. They did emphasize my shitty lockout strength. Need to concentrate more on contraction and shrugging up on my normal presses.

    Nothing for saturday, referee certification class lasted until the gym closed. Might try to hit up just the bike during my lunch break tomorrow. Missing days isn't good.

    Kneehab
    Bike 17mins
    Up another notch. Not moving any closer because I'm finally in a normal position and my therapist said to stop here. Pedaling at a continuous rate and with resistance finally.

    Bench: 3x5x157

    CSR: 6x4x100
    2x15x50

    Curlz 3x8x51

    Rear delt flye 3x15x60

    Bench form improving, getting my upper back into much better overall tightness, it adds so much strength. Might add a down set or 2 on bench in the future. Felt good today, strong on all the lifts. Should have done some dips, and still being a bitch about levering. Just gotta get that hammer in my face so I use it.

    Kneehab
    Bike 19mins

    Leg press 4x10x155

    Pull ups 4(+14lb),3(+14lb),3(+14lb),5,4,2

    Went to gym alone today and had my school bag with me, so when I got to do pullups I kind of forgot to take it off, then realized as I was about to start, so I did 3 sets with it on. Weighed it after, came in at 14 lbs.

    I was happy with the pullups, before surgery I had just started implementing weighted chins, and was up to 3x5 with 12 lbs. Pullups are harder for me so doing almost the same total work as with the chins is a good thing. I also rested less.

    Kneehab
    Bike 20min

    CSR 6x4x105
    2x15x55. Top grip

    OHP 3x5x82
    2x10x65

    Dips +25 lb. 8,5,5. And a shit ton of short ROM reps with no weight

    Dips today instead of skullcrushers for triceps because I felt like it. They are one of my favorite exercises but I don't think i'll do them again for a while because of the danger involved. If i failed a rep i would certainly destroy my knee.

    --- looking back i screwed up and did the same weight on OHP as last time. No wonder it wasn't very hard, I wanted to just do 85 but went by what i thought my phone had down from last time, doh.

    Off crutches and no brace!!! Woo. Been able to walk unnassisted for 2 weeks but was being cautious. I'm also still going to wear a brace out of the home for a little longer for insurance.
    5 weeks post op today.


    PT went okay, I was worried from my incident a couple weeks ago. Dr and therapist both said everything was all good. Relief.

    Bike 20min, level 4

    Leg press 4x10x160

    Pullups BW+15: 4,4,4. BW: 7,4

    I've been doing at least one pull exercise every session since the start of this log, and zero signs of over use or stalling. I was/am weak! Pullups are getting better which feels great, a bodyweight rep now is way more powerful and quick.

    Bike 20min level 5
    Kneehab

    Bench 3x5x160
    5,5,4,1

    CSR 2x2x135

    Curlz 3x8x55

    Rear delt flye 3x15x65


    Lost concentration on bench and took too long before the last rep. My lifting partner just walked away after I did my first rep and it fucked with my head, and I needed help on the last one. Boo.

    Completely spaced on doing my real work sets of CSR. I was helping my friends girlfriend learn deadlifts and did bench after, intending to do CSR after. I was just fucking around with the 135x2x2 in between. The gym was closing in like 15 minutes after benching and I just finished up with curls because I'm retarded.
    On a good note, my lifting partner that I've been helping learn the lifts got a compliment from some guy on his deadlift.
