Grims path to the gold
 
as some of you may know by now my ideal physique is that of a golden age bodybuilder something like reg park, steeve reeves, and george eiferman. unfourtunately my lifts are low to a bad idea of training for my first for years, and my bad shoulder has kept my bench way to low. another problem i've had is a lack of weight, i unfourtunatly i only have 255 including my bar but will soon be making the jump to a full olympic set, another problem is this year i have been forced to take multiple extended layoffs, so I've basically been forced to fight to get back to point a multiple times. My best lifts to date are

squat- 255x3 (atg style)
Deadlift- 255x5 (could have done more, but i was just messing around with it, kinda testing the waters)
Bench press- 150x3 (my shoulder problems have made progress here slow and hard)

Anyway i am currently bulking until the beginning of Februrary when i will begin my cut for summer. A few quick stats

weight 210ibs
BF% (approximate) 14%

I'll be following your progress.

What happened to your shoulder?

Good luck Grim83. I read this board a lot. I like the logs. I learn a lot from them. Looking to learn from your's too.

I screwed it up when i was younger and weaker, i had about a 300ib "mini bike", which was oer double my weight, and i crashed, flipped the bike and it landed on the rotator cuff, right between my arm and chest, and then i skidded like that for about 3-4ft, and ever since its given me problems

What issues are you having? Pain? Grinding? Weakness?

pain mostly, which in turn makes it weaker, such as when we moved by the end of the day it would be completely unusable, and i couldn't put any weight on it, i also mentioned this in gl's log, but when i reached 150x3 in the bench it went out also, and i couldn't bench for almost 2 weeks. i've tried stretches and stuff to try and help it get better, but nothing seems to work, im going to try adding some pushups to my post workout routine to work on shoulder stability

Grim83 11-18-2009 12:47 PM

here is my current routine which i will be using until the end of november. its 3x a week

A
Front squat- 2x10, 1x15+
Shoulder press- 2x5, 1x5+
Power cleans- 2x3, 1x3+
Accessory work
Grip work- 1x10-20

B
DL- 2x3, 1x5+
Incline Bench press- 2x5, 1x5+
BB row- 2x5, 1x5+
Accessory work
Weighted situp- 1x10-20

Accessory work is where i usually just throw in my odd isolation exercise, like stuff for arms, or a lagging bodypart

That routine looks solid. You ever try doing those rotator cuff exercises?
