Character Details

  1. Thanks It's stressful, but there's pretty much nothing I can do to speed things up. I need to suck it up and just do my job And talking about doing my job - I think I found what I was doing wrong going to elbow. I suppose I tried to use my opposite leg as a counterweight more than pushing the other leg against the floor. And "pulling" myself on the elbow (more horizontal chest movement) works better then just "rolling" on it.
  2. Jan. 22nd S&S routine (with extra rest) 3x20 2H swings 40kg 30 sec rest 2x20 2H swings 32kg 2min rest 10x1 TGU 32kg
  3. Checkup - done. New doc was more talkative and descriptive, which made me feel way better. The lump I feel under the skin is a ligament holding flexor tendons. It is normal this ligament overgrows a bit with such injuries said the doc, so no worries. It should get back to normal, but it will take a lot of time. On the other hand, sensory issues are something of moderate concern. Doc said there are two possibilities. First one is nerves were injured slightly and it will take 3-4 months to heal (and everything will be back to normal). Option two is nerves were fractured more th
  4. Jan. 20th S&S routine (with extra rest) 3x20 2H swings 40kg 30 sec rest 2x20 2H swings 32kg 2min rest 10x1 TGU 32kg
  5. Jan. 18th S&S routine (with extra rest) 3x20 2H swings 40kg 30 sec rest 2x20 2H swings 32kg 2min rest 10x1 TGU 32kg Small progress is better than no progress.
  6. Gah! I went for checkup, but it turned out my doc isn't there anymore (don't know why though). Lady at the registration assigned me to another orthopedist - I will be seeing them at Wednesday. Pity they didn't call me earlier about this.
  7. Jan. 15th S&S routine (with extra rest) 3x20 2H swings 40kg 1 min rest 2x20 2H swings 32kg 2min rest 10x1 TGU 32kg
  8. Checkup is scheduled for tomorrow. Mobility is a mess - over last week I made hardly any progress. Finger isn't swollen so much (but still is a bit), but this showed there are some hard "lumps" inside - those feel like scar tissue under the skin. Gonna bug the doc for ultrasound. Also sense of touch is weird - one spot is numb-ish, and another one 2 millimeters apart is over-sensitive, both tactile and temperature-wise. I think healing may take longer than I hoped and undermine my plans (S&S routine with 40kg bell on 40th b-day)...
  9. Jan. 13th S&S routine (with extra rest) 3x20 2H swings 40kg 1 min rest 2x20 2H swings 32kg 2min rest 10x1 TGU 32kg
  10. Yeah, I suppose that should work. But first I need to find EXACTLY what I do wrong, and then address the issue. Right now I'm gazing at about a millionth youtube video and I think I'm getting dumber each new one... But today's session done with same weights as Friday I think from now on I will add load/reduce rest in week's interval. This way worked for me before, so it should work now. On a side note - one handed swings with 16kg are still too heavy for left hand - will stick to two-handed ones for some more time.
  11. Jan. 11th S&S routine (with extra rest) 3x20 2H swings 40kg 1 min rest 2x20 2H swings 32kg 2min rest 10x1 TGU 32kg
  12. Despite the finger. I can only bend it maybe half way. Extension isn't full either. But holding a kettle like this doesn't require much finger grip, so my other fingers are enough for stabilization.
  13. Jan. 6th S&S routine (with extra rest) 3x20 2H swings 40kg 1 min extra rest 2x20 2H swings 32kg 2min rest 6x1 TGU 32kg 4x1 TGU 24kg _______________ Jan. 8th S&S routine (with extra rest) 2x20 2H swings 40kg 1 min rest 1x20 2H swings 40kg 2x20 2H swings 32kg 2min rest 10x1 TGU 32kg
  14. My get-ups are back at 32kg level!
  15. Not a race at all. It is advised to do get-ups slowly - this way you focus on the form and keep muscles under load for longer time. And this translates directly to more strength gain. The times I gave you are just for "test routine" to check if you can fulfill goals of the program. It is my way to time every workout, as I lack free time and need to manage it strictly. For reference, try to get your hands on actual book - Simple & Sinister by Pavel Tsatsouline.
