Almost two years ago to the day I had surgery to re-attach my right tricep tendon. I won't mention how it happened because it couldn't have occurred in a more embarrassing way. This picture was taken a few days after my bandage was removed, maybe two weeks after my surgery.
I spent a great deal of time at my first post-op appointment asking my surgeon questions. He told me that when he made the initial incision, and opened up my arm, that his first thought was sewing two mop heads together. It painted a very clear picture of how serious the surgery was, and how long it may take to get my strength back. It was not recommended that I start physical therapy before August 1st. I waited 6 weeks to schedule my first PT appointment. I will go into more detail in another blog this weekend.
As for my workout tonight:
Bench: 45/15/15, 95/10, 135/10, 185/5, 225/5, 275/3, 305/1-not a very good session at all
Orange Band Assisted Pull-Ups: 5/4/3/4/4
Bench Press: 225/10/10/10-Not sure what got into me here. I felt I needed to feel that pump.
Orange Band Face Pulls: 15/15/15
Skull Crushers w/EZ Bar: Bar/15, bar+20lbs. 15/15/15-Have not done skull crushers in over two years. This is a huge major accomplishment.
Overall not a great training session, but certainly not the worst either. I felt I should have been able to take 305lbs. for a triple tonight. I guess it was not in the cards tonight. I am starting to believe that training after 9pm is taking its toll on me. On most days I am up at 4am. Training at 9pm or 10pm cannot be as beneficial as training at 3pm or 4pm, where I am most used to training.
