I subpluxed my left shoulder years ago, yeah.

Know if bodyweight instead of lifting is safe to do whilst recovering?
You're going to want to start with a physical therapy type of routine until you can achieve full ROM without pain. Bands, soup cans, things like that. I remember pullups hurt for over a year (still did them, but I don't recc that.)

Workout yesterday:
Squats - 270x1, 270x1, 225x5, 225x5, 225x5. Deloading, didn't feel very good lifting heavy.
Bench - 225x5, x5.
Barbell Row - 185x5, x5.

I think I'm going to switch up my routine fairly soon. I am struggling to lift 5x5 on squat every other day.
And then I sat there going "really? that was it? that's so stupid."

I still think the best closure you get in Armageddon is just moving on to the next character.

Nothing over the weekend (bleh), but got my lifts in Tuesday:
squat 165 lb 5x5 - easy
OH press 65 lb 5x5 - easy
deadlift 145 lb 5x5 - huuh

Interested to see where the squats start getting dicey, and whether I can actually keep +5ing through ~85 lb (previous max) on the OH press.

Switched to the Starting Strength app ($9,) mostly because Rippetoe is my new preacher, so I may as well buy the app to go with the book I bought. It's not very intuitive but I figured it out with some playing around. I like that you can reference his book from within it and it has more options than the free Stronglifts. Also, I'm sick of doing 5x5s--my body was falling apart. 3x5s will treat me better.

I don't drink a gallon of milk a day, though, heh. ('cause I'm too big for that, anyway.)



Took the other day off and Tuesday I did a cardio-esque routine.

Also, LOL:



I feel good about my investment because I'm where Rippetoe said I'd be in his book (reading is the video above.) Keep at it @brytta!

Thursday:
squat 165 lb 5x5
bench 95 lb 5x5
barbell row 75 lb 5 reps, only 4 sets

My previous barbell row was ostensibly 95 lb, but it Was Not Happening today. Checked my form against the video and felt better after adjusting, but I'd already put some strain in my back, so.

If I get my Saturday workout in, I'll add a short run...I don't want to do distance running, but getting a tiny bit of wind back would be good.

What app is that that you guys are using?  It's probably already been mentioned but I don't want to scroll forever.

This week is week four of cardio 4X a week.  I'm not seeing a huge amount of weight lose.  Grr.  But my mile is getting faster and I can tell I'm getting into better shape after neglecting cardio for some time since my dad passed away so I'll take that as a win since losing weight is more of a thing I want to do than a thing I need to do.

Did a 3 mile run with 4 blocks of calisthenics divided up into it.

30 pushups
30 squats
30 sit ups
10 burpees
X4
And then I sat there going "really? that was it? that's so stupid."

Went about 4-5 miles today on a run. Feet went numb about 3 miles in for whatever reason. My back probs better not be returning.

Almost had the last rep on deadlift--got it halfway up. (That's what she said.)

Finally seeing my weight trending down.  It's week 5 of going to the gym 4x a week and doing at least a 400 calorie burn (approximately 4 miles).  I'm incorporating core workouts in now.  I have about 6 - 10 lbs more where I want to focus on fat loss.  From there I want to focus on muscle building to retain and harden.  I am however, doing good on my macros and even though I'm not strength training too hard ATM, I've got my protein set at about 30% - 40% most days.

Wednesday didn't happen, so Thursday:
squat 175 lb 5x5
bench press 100 lb 5x5
barbell row 75 lb 5x5

My previous barbell row was ostensibly 95 lb, but it Was Not Happening today.

Turns out that one set of plates is marked in kg. Oops. (45 lb + kg_to_lb(50 kg) = 155 lbs.)

I was halfway up on bench again for the last rep. Damn it. I need some 2.5lb plates--someone stole them out of the HITT box I use. Guess I'll have to go to the official gym for my next bench day and do 230lbs.
