Arrow Babs: Bars and Bras Log...

Time for a new start, hopefully next Monday; first, I need to sort something tomorrow (Thursday), Monday morning at the very latest.



Important note: Due to my Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and the amount of pain it can and frequently does cause, progression has to be careful. Even smaller weightloads can cause issues which means the larger loads using the larger musculature of the back and chest area have the potential to cause even more pain in addition to the base pain levels. The last thing I need is to have a really abd flare-up that will halt training for a long time or indeed prevent any more training. This all means, keeping an eye on the response from my body after each session, watching for accumulated problems, and being vigilant of any numbness etc. Where lots of back, chest, and shoulder muscles come in to play in exercises such as the front squat, back squat, bench press, OHP and such, and with heavier loads, is where potential flare-ups may occur.

Previously, using only light weights, in comparison, I have been known to suffer for well over 3 months and need to keep laying down just to ease the intense pain, burning, and discomfort that set in after a few light sessions.

I'm mixing a couple of things up, oddly though it has been done before, I found out after much research. Won't say too much at the moment, I'm just gonna see how things pan out; though I can say I have changed my emphasis...I sat here one night and realised I wanted to lift heavier loads while I still can...then I started having hip pains , so we'll see how things go. Going to take it easy at the same time as progressing; slow is key, I think.

It will be based around 4 days a week, 2 on, 1 off.

You buried your squat stands in kettlebells? That's a lot of kettlebells isn't it? Still marching them up the stairs ought to prepare you for the squats!

I have about 18 KBs and half of them are the size of a football, so they take up a bit of space...we've been debating standing one complete set along the landing so that they're out of my way and easily accessible at the same time; so tomorrow's task is to move them. The other, somewhat smaller KBs are already sat in the room in a place that's not so much in the way of anything.

That's the one big problem with my "workout" room which is a small room, stacks of plates, folding bench, two safety stands, barbells, straps, wraps, computer, laundry, exercise bike (hubby only), stepper, bookshelf...it all takes space. It'll be a workout just getting stuff out and packing it away every session.

Best of luck. Do I get the sense that you are on a comeback of sorts? Sorry if I missed something.

Yeah, hubby has been ill, the year previous (2010) he had ankle fusion; last year (2011), he had a heart attack; this year, he had open-heart surgery...things have been very much up in the air and I sat here one night and had one of those Eureka moments...when it suddenly dawned on me that my lifting goals were no longer the same.

We sat made some minor plans and hope they get rolling without much getting in the way; lo and behold, hubby has a really bad night with meds and sleep but still taking everything one day at a time and hopefully he'll be up to the cinema later on. He should have had his rehab session today but he was exhausted so I told him to go back to bed and rest; he's doing plenty of exercise on the days he has no rehab so it's not like he's slacking...and he asked them about weights today, when he rang, only to find that the physio prefers to leave that a while; but, since he wants to play bowls and is permitted to do so 12 weeks post-surgery, light weights would be wise to be starting on now.
