Lifting is the bestest of activities, you have finally chosen the right path....

But for serious, nice deadlift PR! Just looking at your thread thingie, I worry you may have done the one rep test too close together and that's why you had knee issues? I know my knees hate it when I do heavy squats and heavy deadlifts too close together. (Oddly, it's fine on the same day, like in a meet, but if I do super heavy squats Monday, I can't do DL's until at least Thursday). Just food for thought. Get better soon!

Since you are now focusing on upper body for knee reasons, any thought on transferring your goal to something more upper body related? Like, bench, for example? :P

This is such a DJTrippyT thing to do :D

 

I know, right? 

 

More leg abuse as the week went on:

 

Gym workout on Saturday, did mostly upper body to spare my legs for Sunday bike ride. Hit 80 pounds on my overheadpress, which is really good (I usually do 40 pounds, but it's for 15 reps; this was five reps)

 

Sunday: solo bike on the Silver Comet, 52 miles in about four hours. I overdid it with the preworkout and was absolutely FLYING for the first 18 miles. Like, I don't even remember miles 8-15.

 

After 18 miles the preworkout wore off and it got hard. I did okay, but by the end I was soooo happy to get off the bike. My quads were screaming.

 

 

when I went home I put my compression socks on and wore them for a few hours and it really seemed to help.

 

Monday: STRENGTH DAY! Low reps, high weight. 3 straight sets of everything, no circuits

 

10 mins rower to warm up

Deadlift: 4 reps, 135 pounds

pushups: 15 reps, bodyweight

Leg press, 4 reps, 140 pounds

Pullups: 5 reps, 105/105/125 THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKIN' ABOUT! PROGRESS!

Prowler: three reps, 215 pounds YASSSSSSSS

 

Week one Summary: Good! By the numbers, I'm a little stronger, and bringing the strength vs conditioning workouts into better balance is definitely helping to ease that constant sense of fatigue I was having. I don't think I would have been able to do that strength workout Monday after Sunday's bike ride if I'd done my usual conditioning workload. I'm also not as ravenously hungry at all times (just... most times ;) )

 

Today will probably be a rest day as I'm behind on work stuff.

 

Yesterday at the gym someone was talking about grilled cheese sandwiches and now I can't stop thinking about grilled cheese. Not really relevant, I'm just sharing.

Important Challenge update!

 

 

 

Well, mildly important, in that I have to CHANGE MY CHALLENGE GOALS.

 

 

I worked out last night and my knee flared up again. I got thru the workout (gimpily) and then spent a couple hours scouring the internet to see what the hell is wrong with me. I was really worried that I had a meniscus tear, but the more research I did the more I think I have an IT Band injury, with the major inflammation site being right where my IT band inserts into my outer knee.

 

 

This is good, in a sense, because it will probably heal on it's own if I just stop fucking with it. (Coarse language. Sorry). So I'm going to back off of my quest to set new PR's in big lifts as I have to pull all the squatting/box jumping/stadiumstepping out of my regime for a minute. However, I can still lift heavy - in fact, lifting heavier for less reps is indicated for helping the IT heal. I just can't squat.

 

(sobs quietly in corner for a minute)

 

So this will still be the DJ TRIPPY GOES WARRIOR BANANAS Challenge, just without the new 1RM goals. I'm hoping to use this as an excuse to start sledgehammering, which I've always wanted to do, and it will motivate me to talk to the trainer at the gym about ways to work around the injury, and lose some weight which can only help my knees in general.

 

I also plan to wear a very fashionable compression sleeve on my knee. Something in a tasteful panda print if I can find it.

 

Okay, return to your usual programming

Sledgehammering is very cathartic. The real question is, can you still ride your bike?

I think so. I did about an hour on the trainer yesterday with no problems, took today off, and will trainer it again tomorrow. I've decided the trainer is the sugar-free low-fat yogurt version of riding. I would so much rather be outdoors...

 

Now if I could just figure out how to use the... errr... "facilities" without sitting down I'll be golden.

I did nothing this weekend as I was working a crazy job. Correction: I did nothing but work and eat pizza.

 

I realized this morning that my birthday is in 45 days. I'll be 49. This is motivating but also slightly unnerving.

 

Also my birthday falls exactly on Thanksgiving this year so I'm getting myself extra stuffing as a gift.

 

AND ALL THE PIE

The ITB is such an annoying bit of the human body! Is normal activity getting less painful?

 

yes, it's already improving. It never hurt much just walking around, just when I would put my weight on that foot (left) and push upward. So I got up from a patio table the other day, for instance, and put all my weight on that side as I climbed over the bench, and it tweaked painfully. But it fades pretty quickly, too - like a pinching feeling.

 

Supposedly one of the signs of it being ITB is that when you rub the outside of the affected knee, even when it's not hurting directly, there will be soreness, and that's just how it feels - like I have a bruise under the skin. I guess that's where it's rubbing on the bursa? I'm spending a lot of time looking at anatomical drawings of knees.

 

I just don't want it to be a meniscus tear, as that means surgery and disaster. But I think if it was that it wouldn't be improving and it would hurt all the time instead of just when I'm putting load on it.

I'm considering this for my 50th year at some point. Although it doesn't involve a bicycle. Maybe I can ride my bike from San diego to Vancouver or something. I wonder how long that would take?

I had dreams last night of doing turkish-get ups. I really need to get back in the gym. I should be able to go today when I get all my paperwork for this job done. Goal is to have it in the fedex by noon.

Finally, back in the gym yesterday! Whooo hoo!

 

3 sets of everything

 

Deadlift:  #145 for 4 reps

 

OH Press: #90 for reps for one set. New PR!

 

But I could only do the one set at #90; I had to back down to 80 for the other two sets, not because I couldn't lock out overhead - it was a bitch, but I can do it - but because I couldn't clean the barbell to my shoulders to start. I almost knocked myself out on the second attempt, so to prevent an embarrassing episode I backed down to 80 at 6 reps. Still, progress!

 

Hamstring Curls: 2 sets only, at #50 for 5 reps. 

 

TBar rows: #70 for 8 reps, same as before

 

pull - up: 1 set at 105, 1 set at 120, 1 set where my arms wouldn't work. In retrospect, not the best idea after tbars and OH press.

 

Sledgehammer: mwahahahahahaha this is so much fun. 50 reps per side (broken into sets of 10)

 

I'm using the smallest sledgehammer - I think it's 10 pounds but it might be 8. If only there were a giant device for weighing things right next to the front door of the gym I could find out.

 

At any rate, I feel sure @Sloth the Enduring's hammer is bigger.

 

I was scheduled for leg press, but after the deadlifts and OH I was starting to feel the knee - not pain, but some tension - so I decided to be smart and put that off. Keep score at home, I don't do smart things often.
