I can't be down for too long! I just get itches ya know!

I watched the vid and they certainly look helpful. However, I do not have wide bands in order to attempt it. I am sure they would help, even tho the Doc said there are no exercises that will help this.

The verdict is is that 205 was too much, which is why I did only the single. I felt it straining too much at that point. Hopefully, next week will be 225 or more.

I have been thinking as to what to do. I am getting a second opinion and in the meantime just heal up the back. It's looking like I may become a bench only lifter tho. Bench is my least favorite lift tho out of the 3. But who knows, maybe that could change.

Thnaks for you thoughts of encouragement tho my good friend.

Saw the video and I have posted and erased about two responses. All I can say is that I am sorry about your back and am pulling for you. I hope you make the best decision for you and your health.

you can use two smaller bands to make that larger band.

Thanks Mike - I appreciate it. With all the help of everyone here, I'll figure something out that will work for me. I am thinking of becoming a bench only lifter and bodybuilding for all othe rlifts that I can do.

All I can say is best wishes Jim You seem to be of strong character so I believe you'll make the wisest choice and thrive no matter what path you choose.

Thanks Kuyt! I have some hope now thanks to Fazc. There seems to be ssome collective thought that I will have a chance to prove the Doc wrong. At the very least, I'll become a much better bencher and I can still do other lifts. I have also thought that it could always be worse.

However, there is something about deads that is making me not want to quite give up on them yet. I also hope I am able to keep my squatting going.

BENCH AND WHATEVER I FELT LIKE SESSION

JB is currently coming up with an evil plan to help take over the Bench World (haha) I tell you, I am even more grateful for his help now, if that is even possible. He also promised I will be able to grow even bigger legs. Bonus!

We sure do have a really special group of lifters here at MAB. You all have given me hope that I have a chance to prove the Doc wrong. In the meantime, I will follow JB's program and give it everything I have. Once I am healed and have the second opinion, I will be able to reevaluate and maybe be able to reintroduce deadlifts. Hope and optimism sure is a wonderful thing. For now, I have to make sure I don't fuck up that lower back anymore.

The Crew also thought that this is the way to go and have vowed to get me that 500 deadlift no matter how long it takes.

I now want to move forward and try to put the last 2 weeks behind me.

I did tons of dead hangs throughout the session.

Bench Press
Bar X5
95 X5
135 X5
155 X3
185 X3
205 X2
225 X2
245 X2
260 X2
275 X1
285 X0 Grrr.
285 X1 PR
Was a bit surprised that the spotter not only lifted off way too fast, he also let the weight go right away instead of gradually, which really threw me off. He said he did not assist even tho his fingers were on it. So, I'll count it, especially considering the crapezoid liftoff.

Squat
Bar X5
105 X5
145 X5
165 X5
195 X3
235 X3
Really happy here. Last Thursday, the best I could do was 205 X1 before my back felt strain. Today, no strain at all.

DB Rows
35 X5
65 X5
90 X5
110 X6
110 X8
120 X5 PR
120 X4
120's are the biggest they have, so quite pleased with these as well as they did not bother my back as long as I did them from a dead stop.

Chins
BW X3
BW X3
BW x3
