    Thursday
    The pain from the injury is becoming more localized. I'd got under the bar yesterday to see if I could move well enough but did some limbering and stretching. Today:

    Seated Press
    Using the Cerebus triple ply elbow sleeves I worked to 107kg x 6 easily.

    Hammer DB Curls
    to 90lbs x 8 reps (could feel these pulling on my injury)

    TPD
    to 12p x 8 reps (as above - so stopped)

    Bwt: 308lbs

    What's the injury? I've had a torn rotator, torn bicep, torn meniscus, lumbar fusion and 2 hernia surgeries. I know a bit about rehab if you'd like any help.

    Friday
    Still on pain meds. Nothing pushed to the max but equally I wasn't resting and I didn't wanna hold back too much either
    Lat Pulldown using a stirrup handle
    to the stack x 8 reps. This felt the most ok

    Close Grip Bench Press
    to 157-kilos x 1 rep. More there for sure

    DOH Deadlift
    to 207kg x 1 rep - again more there

    No grip today (anything I'd do Friday would pull me forward)

    Bwt: a fraction under 308lbs

    I don't know what it's called medically but it's like, as described, I'd pounded the soft tissue around the spine at the base of my traps. It's not (cos I've tweaked that before) the nerve cluster in that area.
