Although I doubt anyone will take the time to seriously read this log, I feel obligated to offer a little of my background. I'm a 21 year old college student and former amateur boxer. 2 years ago, I got hit by a car. This left me with torn menisci in both knees, a partially torn ACL in my right knee, as well as a sublaxed right shoulder with a SLAP (superior labral tear from anterior to posterior). Recovery/Rehab for those injuries took about a year and a half. Slow process, and combined with the painkillers, I was left with a lack of motivation (and appetite). I ended up weighing 119 pounds about 8 months ago (at 5'10). I don't have a before shot of this, but think something along the lines of Christian Bale in "The Machinist". After hitting that low, I finally pulled it together and got back in the gym. Training was largely stuff that would be frowned upon by those on this board because I was still not cleared for big compound lifts, and frankly a little intimidated by them and worried about reinjuring myself. It was enough to put some weight back on, and build my confidence again. Finally, I'm able to being compound lifts. I plan to take it easy and work my way back gradually, so I plan on running Starting Strength in the New Year when I go back to class. Starting Stats (12/27/12) First Update (4/6/13): Height: 178 cm (5'10) BW: 72 kg (160) 77 kg (~170) Max Lifts: Bench: 250 245x5 Squat: 225 265x5 Deadlift: 309 325x5 SOHP: 120 135x5 Bench is higher than the other lifts because I was able to work it 8 months ago when I got back in the gym. The other lifts are pathetic due to the injury, but heres hoping that changes in the coming year. I'm hoping this log will keep me motivated and accountable, as well as serve as a platform for me to reach out to other members for advice. All weights in the log are in lbs. unless otherwise indicated.
