So my goals are always evolving and changing and when they change enough I create a new log to refocus myself.

Former goals:

500 deadlift// achieved
405 squat// achieved
275 bench// 10 pounds away and not caring

New Quantitative Goals:
(These are to be achieved by the end of the summer)

Deadlift: 550
Squat: 440
Bench: 315
Powerclean: 315
Snatch: 250
1HS: 185
Bodyweight: 215 to 200 (flub)

New Qualitative Goals:
(To be focused on but not measured)

Noticeable gains in quickness, hitting power, and agility.
Better stability and health in joints.
Better all-around athletic muscular balance (backs of shoulders, upper back, neck.)

I am creating a new routine to follow and will be submitting it for critique soon.

50-12 win over UNCP today. My weights have helped immensely. I am quicker and more powerful already, and scored twice with breakaway runs. However, I am hitting too hard for my injured shoulder to handle. I assume the pain will go down by tomorrow, but currently it is a task just to move my right arm and the pain is ample. I will go to the doctor in the morning.
 
The doctor said I almost had an AC joint separation, but that my shoulder's strength and mass from weightlifting prevented that from happening. I have a damaged trapezius tendon, biceps and triceps, trapezius, and we'll see in two weeks if my rotator cuff was torn more or not.
 
So, you're lifting to look better for strip poker? :icon_twis

I kid, I kid. Good luck with the shoulder, man.
 
sounds like you got beat the hell up

I won the battle, but lost the war. I received a kickoff and had nowhere to run but straight. I lowered my shoulder to go straight into contact with their hooker, who was running at me. Instead of attempting to wrap, he just dropped and gave me his shoulder, which was healthy. I bowled him over pretty badly but I paid for it.

Shoulder update: With new X-rays the doctors found I have an AC joint separation. MRI is on Friday.
 
so this is a injury log eh?

tough luck man,i hope everything turns out ok.
 
Well, for the next 4-6 weeks it's an injury log. After that it returns to a Sevens Rugby fitness and strength log. Thankyou for modifying your signature so that we with 500 deadlifts are ghey again.

Sidenote: practiced with a local men's club today. Avoided all contact, but got to run hard and pass some. Shoulder hurt a little, but I gave it time and it felt better. It felt good to run without shin splints happening.
 
I hate feeling my strength slip away as I'm injured!
