    Another story for Ragin. So we were camping in the Dels this weekend and were down at the pool. There were a lot of younger guys because of numerous bachelor parties. So all these guys are rubbing lotion on themselves and each other. There was a line of about 7 girls sitting on the edge of the pool. I go up and ask the guy that just got done lathering up another guy "hey can I borrow your lotion?" I take the lotion and go up to the best looking blonde sitting on the edge and ask her if she would mind putting some lotion on my back and shoulders. No problem ... then I turn around and ask if she would get my chest too... no problem she was almost giving me a massage it lasted so long. I thanked her then walked over and gave them their lotion back. All they could say was we just just schooled by an old guy. LOL

    I have not been able to touch a weight in 13 days. Went camping and a bunch of young guys just felt they were stronger than me. They wanted to arm wrestle. I went undefeated even beat the lefty left handed, but am paying the price with something torn in my left shoulder? I have an appointment today to have my tennis elbow and shoulder looked at. Shoulder is getting better I could probably lift, but figure it has been 13 days I might as well get the elbow right.
    Diet has been ok, I tightened it back up yetsreday. Still able to do cardio so i have increased cardio. I need to drop some bodyfat anyway prior to this fall and another cycle.

    Glad you showed them buddy. Often see it in the gyms with young kids ego lifting to try impress the bigger lifters, same thing by challenging you. Silly fvckers!

    Get that shoulder right, you dont want to make it worse when that cycle starts.

    I always tell them before we start "It's a lose lose for you. If I win you got beat by a 55 year old man, If I lose wow you beat a 55 year old man" I can't remeber the last time I lost? Humm must be because I have a bad memory i'm old or it was a long time ago. LOL

    Well Doc said it's not tennis elbow. He said it's golfers elbow because it's on the inside of the elbow. He shot it up with some steroids , so i hope it heals and I can get back to lifting. Weight was at 206 this morning about normal for me. Now just gotta let the shoulder heal.

    I'm feeling motivated to cut and get my BF% down to 12%, since I can't lift upper body right now! Tighten up diet a bit more, fasted HIIT 3-4 times a week at 5AM, do legs twice a week, lastly reduce alcohol intake. Did legs last night then went home and had a protein shake, then made dinner (grilled turkey breast, brown rice and asparagus), then ground some oats and made protein pancakes for my breakfast. Was up at 4:30 AM at the gym at 5 and did 40 minute HIIT, hot tub shower and off to work.

    Thats it mate, if you cant do upper body, utilise what you can. Make the most of it, as it appears you're doing.

    Man I have got to get back on track. Feeling fat! I took the last 5 days off from all exercise and was drinking and partying. Still have a slight pain in my left shoulder so still not much weight lifting. I need to get my diet and cardio back in check, but to do that my motivational level needs to return.

    Hahaha

    You know how to do it so just do it

    Ease off that shoulder and do some band work. Is it your shoulder or rotator cuff?

    You do not need motivation, just action. I live by, in terms of training, Action before Thought. I basically show up no matter what and just start lifting. Once I start and a few minutes in I forget that I did not want to go, to begin with, and I workout like normal. Works great for me.

    It's more than showing up at the gym. It's little things like not being motivated to do the fasted HIIT instead of just 40 minutes on the elliptical after work. Also instead of ordering chicken and cottage cheese order a burger and fry's! Not staging food on Sunday etc etc... the lifestyle is slipping a bit. I will get back on track I just need to find a new goal. I met my most of my goals last spring and was in maintenance mode through the summer. I think with out a goal and getting the attitude of just staying the same allows a person to slip back into old habits. I have not gained any weight or inches, it's just when you can't lift your muscles aren't full.

    Ok doing what I can. Did 30 minute arm workout last Thursday and 40 minutes cardio. Friday I did a 45 minute leg workout no cardio. Saturday I did my "so you want abs routine", 100 push ups, and 35 minutes cardio (fasted), Sunday Fasted 35 minutes cardio. Took Monday off because my abs are killing me. My shoulder hurt bad from the push ups. I have an appointment next week to get an x-ray (takes forever to get an appointment with the VA). Will do cardio today then off camping till Sunday!

    Shoulder is getting better! Physical therapy is helping and I hope to be back to my normally lifting in the next month. Still doing arms, legs, abs and cardio. Diet better the past 2 weeks since camping season is over. Time to cut and prepare for a mid winter cycle. Last cycle ended in May of 2016. We booked our winter trip for mid February so I will see how I am doing as far as injuries and decide cycle before or after vacation? Golf elbow is gone since I haven't been doing chest, back or shoulders since the end of July.

    I really need to get my diet back in check. Way to much drinking and partying. Shoulder is getting a bit better but not 100% yet. Taking it easy on the lifting light weights high reps. Still doing cardio 5 days a week and maintaining, but feeling fat.

    Haven't been posting much lately very busy and not much to report. Doing PT twice a week now for the shoulder that still isn't 100%. Getting a bit better. I am able to do some lifting, but hurts like crazy the next day. Doing a cleanse right now and then plan to hit the diet and cardio hard for a month. After that we will see what is next? Still sitting right about 208 and have not lost any muscle in the 3 months that I haven't been able to serious lift.

    I was taught if you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything so I haven't been posting! The VA wouldn't allow me to continue physical Therapy because they said lifting weights isn't part of a persons daily routine and since I am able to work, eat, sleep etc... that there was nothing more they could do. I understand higher priorities then a guy that just wants to be able to lift weights again. So I was at a Thanksgiving day get together and my nephews brother is a physical therapist, he told me to take 2 weeks off don't do any lifting, exercises, or repetitive motions with the shoulder... just continue stretching it. It's been 12 days and as of right now I feel no pain in my shoulder. Maybe this weekend I will test it with some light weights. It seems like after I turned 55 in July I have been falling apart. Pulled muscles in my shoulder, then my left hip that I had replaced 3 years ago started to hurt and I can't even do 30 minutes on the elliptical with out pain and now plantar fasciitis and can barely walk. Gotta get my health back one of these days soon!

    i'm going to test the shoulder tomorrow and see where it's at. Day to day and stretching there is no pain but under load with weights who knows. If I can't lift and can't do cardio I am going to have to clean up my diet big time.

    Was able to bench and do incline flies last Friday with minimal pain in my shoulder. Then On Monday I did shoulders again no major pain. I can't believe how much strength I have lost not lifting for just over 4 months. Military press was at 265 for 6-7 reps struggled to do 225 for 5 reps. Still some minor pain in the left shoulder and right foot, but starting to get better, atleast I am back in the gym. Now I really need to tweak my diet, something I should have done 4 months ago. Need to redo my TDEE with the reduced activities and stick to a strict diet. My weight this morning is up about 4-5 pounds to 212, but my abs are disappearing already. Time to dig deep and motivate!

    Feels good to be getting back to normal! What i mean by normal is able to workout each muscle group. My shoulder still isn't 100% but I can do most exercises with lighter weights and not experience much pain. Time to dig deep and make some diet changes and crank up the cardio a bit more.

    Not much has changed over the holidays. My diet sucked. My shoulder is still bothering me so I am taking a few more weeks off from lifting again and plan to kick the cardio up to an hour. Gained 1 pound over the holidays, but went through the house and purged all $hit food on Monday. I have a 2100 calorie per day plan with a 50% protein 30% carb and 20% fat ratio laid out and WILL track every thing that goes across my lips. Have not had a drink all week, even though my wife comes home from work and has 2-3. Vacation is quickly approaching and I need to uncover what 6 pack I have!
