You Just had to be with them.
If they look at you, your heart stops.
If you feel their breath on your skin, you just ache.

Ha, been a while!
Still training but spent the last 18 months rehabing a shoulder!
AC, Rotator cuff and nerve impingement... No Bench for over a year
I sneakily tried the other day and can still do a set of 10 at 100kgs...
Lots of Kettle bell, and cable rehab stuff.
Lots of back and stabilizers to control traps, lat and chest which were contributing to shoulder issues
Seeing an Exercise physiologist which really has changed how I lift, posture etc

I have a huge smile on my face!!!!!

Let me be the first to say, Welcome back!

So great to see you online, Chris! It has been a while and I'm so pleased to see your name here.

Hope the shoulder gets better soon. We've got to catch up one of these days. You're one of my all time favorite people I've met in person from this community.

All the very best!

-Robert

Nice!

I think the first and only time I've ever done 21's is with you in Oregon. Perhaps I'll bring em back one of these days. Get that sydneyvegan influence in on my training as I also come back from injuries.

Hope you're having a great summer! A little cold and wet here but moving to Texas in a couple of weeks near the gulf of Mexico so it should be a bit nicer :)

Have a great one. Awesome to see you back! Been keep tabs on you on Facebook every now and then. Wishing you a speedy and full recovery and an awesome rest of the summer!

Wow I really don't post much these days, lol.
Well shoulder is feeling better than it has in a long time, so pretty stoked about that. Still lifting of course... guess you could say I'm lifting smarter these days
Still getting in about 4 gym sessions a week, mixed in with Mountain biking and Hockey (field)
I'll post a few workouts when I get the chance...

Tuesday - Day 1
Wednesday - Day 2
Thursday - Day 1
Friday Day - 2, plus stabilizers
Saturday - Hockey game
Sunday - Rest
Been struggling with motivation lately as the injuries have kept flaring up (Legacy of Rugby)
So lately been working hard on my Adductors and Quads etc to overcome Patellar Subluxation
Feels like I've turned a corner and some great advice from an Exercise physiologist is keeping me together.
Anyway here is last nights workout Only managed 2 visit to the gym so far this week as I pinched a Nerve at L3 at hockey on the weekend :( (I knew I shouldn't have twisted like that!)
I've been wearing a TENS most of this week (Figured legs probably wasn't a great idea) so just did arms
3 x 8 Tricep Extensions SS Tricep Push downs
3 x 8 Flat Bar Push downs
3 x 8 sets 1 arm Tricep Push down Hammer Motion
3 Sets of body weigh dips
3 x 10 Rope Curls
3 x 21 Dumbell 21s (7x 17.5kg SS 7 x 15g SS 7 x 10kg)
Then lots of Stretching, cobras etc
