I live in downtown Greenville and teach at Christ Church Episcopal School (still in Greenville but towards Mauldin).

Good luck with the recovery.

Word to strength training. When the new year gets here I'm going to focus on linear progressing my squat for 12 weeks. I need to get to 1.5xBW.

Thanks man, If you ever want to train with some good people I know a little place in Simpsonville toward Mauldin. Good people, it's a CF styled place but the people there are mostly experienced in Olympic lifting and powerlifting.

Lets see, been feeling pretty good so I'm eyeing a return to training in the next 1 - 2 weeks.

good to see you're back. Also nice seeing you've got some concrete goals. Something I'm sorely lacking.

Where is your bodyweight at after your appendectomy?

I think I have the starting numbers down. I really feel like a beginner in a way, I was very sore yesterday into today and in some ways it feels like I've never touched a weight before. It makes everything frusterating that hard work dissapears just like that, have to start over now.

Well I am happy to say that the soreness I got last monday is pretty much gone, made for an easy training day today.

1/4

BS
45 x 5 x 2
50 x 5
75 x 3
100 x 2
125 x 5 x 3

Good Mornings:
45 x 8 x 3

OHP
45 x 5 x 2
50 x 5
55 x 3
65 x 2
80 x 5 x 3

PC
45 x 5 x 2
45 x 5
55 x 3
70 x 2
85 x 3 x 5

Pullups
10, 10, 6 ( didn't rest long enough for last set)

I had planned to start working on specific weak areas this week that I know have caused issues in the past, a weak lower back is especially a weakness of mine. So lower back work will be a regular addition and eventually some hamstring work like SLDL's sometime in the future.

1/6

BS:
45 x 5 x 2
50 x 5
80 x 3
105 x 2
135 x 5 x 3

Good Mornings:
55 x 3 x 10

BP:
45 x 5 x 2
45 x 5
65 x 3
85 x 2
95 x 5 x 3

DL:
70 x 5 x 2
105 x 3
145 x 2
175 x 5

sit-ups:
10 x 3 x 12 (weight behind the head)

Not bad, no pain in the bench press but something I'm having to deal with is dizziness when holding the barbell on my back and taking air in. My coordination and balance have been far off too, it makes for long recovery times. Not sure how long this will last.

BTW, was very dehydrated apparently after I got home, drank a ton of water took about 2 hours just to start feeling normal again.

Today was much much better. No dizziness, plenty of energy, forms improving, etc.

Belt came in today: Too small, got to send it back. Apparently I'm not good at reading size charts.
