It’s nothing to be ashamed of either!I wasn't too proud of 95 lb squats, but later realized I weigh 60 pounds more than when I last worked out....that's like I'm starting with 155 lbs!
Of course that's nothing to be proud of either, but at least I know why the 95 lbs felt heavier....
Good luck!@Jim D , you're back at it, that's all that matters at this point. The strength will return.
Thursday and Friday are my killer days currently. Thursday is back/chest supersets, rotating types of intensity each Thursday (high reps, heavier weights, lower rest times). Friday is leg day. Nuff said.
My shoulders are sore just thinking about all that!This morning was heavy bag work.
:30 sec rest
5 pull-ups immediately following each round
Round 1 - jabs only
Round 2 - lead hand uppercut, hook, shovel hook, etc followed by 2 more punches
Round 3 - begin each combo with power hand, followed by 2 more punches
Round 4 - combo work
Round 5 - close fighting, working on punching scenarios in tight situations.
Round 6 - punch and duck
Round 7 - all punches and combos off of footwork
Round 8 - endurance punching; throw combos and punches for 20 second, keep hands up and rest for 20, repeat.
Mine used to be wrecked after training like this. Years of not tending to shoulder injuries will have that result.My shoulders are sore just thinking about all that!
It’s good to hear you figured out what was causing those headaches!After years of whey proteins, I remember trying casein. I loved it. It was like a milkshake! Thick and tasty. But it also gave me headaches. Finally figured out my cottage cheese yogurt mix was giving me headaches too. I stopped drinking milk, stopped taking casein, stopped yogurt and cottage cheese and have been headache free since. Just ordered some whey protein and BCAAs to supplement my diet.
@Mr.Draned I've never supplemented with turmeric, what does it do?
My wife wants to know which collagen you use/recommend?
Sled drags are no joke, especially after squats the day before!Thank you @Mr.Draned , we will look those up.
Today was sled dragging day for me. Did 3 laps of the driveway, 1 minute pulling with about1 minute walking in between. 45lbs on the sled. Per my phone, my heart rate was 124 bpm after the first pull, 134 bpm after the second, and 142 bpm after the third.
Felt good overall and seemed to help remove some of the soreness setting in from yesterday's squats...
Took the pooch for a stroll afterwards, which was easy after pulling that sled!
Holy cow! I’m glad you figured it out and stopped, as that must have been painful.I'm mostly a whey protein guy, Optimum Nutrition (usually Rocky Road), but do like the 5 protein blend Muscle Pharm Combat. Unfortunately I don't imagine you can use the Combat as casein is one of he proteins @Jim D .
@Mr.Draned , I tried starting turmeric twice (2 different brands), and started developing kidney stones within a couple days. Needless to say I don't use that, though I wish I could with all my shoulder inflammation.
