Hi Martin
It takes a certain type of stubborness to continue competing as a master, there are more bad days than good but we soldier on.
Is the nerve issue in shoulder, if so you think it's the localised compression of the shirt causing inflammation of tissue around nerve.?


Hi Mate. Extra stubbornness for M3 lol.

Actually it's the opposite problem. All my training has been raw. If anything, the upper arm compression will probably help. I have to wear a floss band tight on the forearm to be able to lift at all. And I struggle with high reps because each rep the pain builds a little bit more. Yet for rowing, pulldowns, etc, no pain...

Today's Training.

Just bench today. Did assistance yesterday and will do it again tomorrow. Damp and cold but it's character building, right?

Normal warm up to 100 for 2, then
110 for 1
120 for 1
130 for 1
140 for 1 - just
110 for 5 x 4 sets
110 for 7
Finish.

Nice little session. The 140 was a bit lopsided but it went.

The bad news is the forearm continues to really hurt. I couldn't lift without tight compression. It was on the mend a few weeks ago, now it's as bad as ever. Unhappy Will adrenaline get me through a competition? No idea...

Today's Training

Nice and pain free, as it always is when it doesn't involve pressing.

Seated Row - 75 for 10 x 5 sets

Lat Pulldown - 50 for 10 x 5 sets

Facepulls - 30 for 20 x 3 sets

Side & Front Lateral Raises - 7.5s for 10 x 3 sets

Dumbell Curls - 20s for 8 x 5 sets

External Rotations - 2.5s for 20 x 3 sets

YTWLs - Band work for 10 x 3 sets

Finish.

Nice wee session. Good to have progressed to 20 kg dumbells for curls, with more in the tank. Off to the dentist, then going to try swimming and see if I can manage a length.

Thanks Ian. Not going to come on and post light numbers, or golf scores, but hopefully back for good. Happy

Take heart from the good sessions......and remember fast recovery is a thing for the youths!


Cheers Jason. Thing is, this isn't recovery per se. And it hurts just the same on light reps. Unhappy

Today's Training.

Dreadful. The wheels may be coming off. Not a full session because I'd trained yesterday. I just wanted to try on the bigger bench shirt.

Cut a long story short, I managed a touch with 60 and couldn't unrack 140 because the trapped nerve has come back with a vengeance.

I might have to pull out of the competition, but I still have ten days. Off for a walk and a good think...

Today's Training

Disappointing and frustrating

Normal warm up to 120 for 1
Shirt on (Rage X 48)
140 for 1 - 4 inches
150 for 1 - 2 inches
160 for 1 - locked it but didn't get near a touch
Shirt off
80 for 10 x 3 sets

Dumbell Curls
17.5s for 10 x 6 sets

Face Pulls
30 for 20 x 3 sets

Finish.

First equipped session in about 9 months. Really disappointed. Lot of thinking to do in the next week. Might have to try a bigger shirt next time. I think 99 kg bodyweight is a little to heavy for the 48 given my current strength levels. Wish I had someone who knew about shirts to train with...

You won't retire, Martin.
Things might come and go, but...


I've had the trapped nerve for nearly 5 tears now, and an injured shoulder for most of that time. I had had enough. I took 4 months off, played a lot of golf, and decided to give it one more go at the end of September. If that session had gone badly, that would have been it. But it didn't...

Thanks guys. I was one session away from retirement, so it's good to be posting again. Happy

Today's Training

Not overflowing with energy today for some reason, even although I had plenty good carbs before training.

Bench
Usual warm up to 100 for 2, then
120 for 1
130 for 2
127.5 for 2
125 for 3 - comeback pb for 3
122.5 for 3
120 for 3
117.5 for 3
115 for 3
112.5 for 3
110 for 3
Finish

That was brutal! I hoped for a triple with 130, but not today. Expected it to get easier as the weight reduced, but the added fatigue balanced out the drop and the 110 was nearly as hard as the 125.

Zero energy for assistance work, will either do it this evening or tomorrow.

Now slumped in the chair. Even the dog walk will have to wait.
