    .. thought id throw it out if any of you guys/gals have been going through the same thing ive been jammin' against for the last couple months ..

    .. granted the routine in the gym has been sparatic .. im working through a dislocated shoulder and the emotional baggage it brought to the table when i hit the weight again ..
    .. training with Pure Evil and his routines .. started with mostly hammer strength machines and moving my way to free weights and "normal" routines for what some people would discuss ..
    started this year .. base weight 189lbs at my heaviest .. and down to 164 now ..
    injury was from rugby and pretty much cancelled my baseball career .. but a majority of the fuck ups that i ran into was through 3 totally different training routines ranging from Track/Baseball/Rugby at the collegiate level ..

    .. ill post up more if anyones somewhat interested in it or if you're in the same boat .. seeing as i went from a decently strong bench for my size until after my injury in which i couldn't even get up quarters without struggling ..

    .. anyone else starting over from injuries or working through piss poor training routines that needed to be re-learned after school?

    Iam starting over from an injury. ACL surgery. I still cant run, play sports or squat. Its sucks and I was depressed but im getting over it as I get more and more normal

    Im dealing with that as we speak. I had full knee reconstruction in my right knee in January and about 2 months ago I had surgery on my left knee to fix cartilage and have my knee cap put back in the right spot. It has been frustrating and tough because athletically it has hampered my ability to tryout for a pro lax team but mentally it has sucked. Its slowly coming back though. My squat numbers are still down due to hurting my right knee in the middle of healing and not being cleared but my dead numbers are coming back up. I almost got 500 this past week which puts me about 100 pounds from my max before surgery.

    It just takes time and patience. My legs have atrophied pretty bad but in the next few months Im hoping it comes back.

    evl will most likely chime in tomorrow .. ive made huge strides forward but at first i was like wtf is this shit sew on a new one and lemme jam on .. ACL surgery sucks .. but its a necessity most of the time .. good friend ive known for a while that ran track at UMASS when i was in school just tore his achilles about 2 weeks ago running at a company sponsored (fun run) type deal .. he's strugglin' now .. the mental aspect is so dibilitating for someone who's been an athlete their whole life .. i was so frustrated i didnt know what to do .. but my trainer threatened to kick my ass if i didnt stop acting like a bitch ..

    i know how you feel man .. injury was on my throwing arm .. and now if i look in the mirror and go through my motion i can see shit moving around and hear it clickin' and bucking .. sounds like a fat chick trying to eat her way through a jenga match ..

    .. frustration can only be turned into motivation .. its a hell of a feeling when you progress further than your previous expectations and succeed man ..

    4 years of competitive swimming probably fucked my my posture and shoulders pretty bad. It's improved a lot since then though.

    wrestling fucked me up.... had shoulder surgery feb 29, cant lift till after christmas... :wtc:

    i know what its like not being able to do anything whatsoever

    it sucks

    just started being able to run again... 5 months post op. that helped alot since i packed on the lbs, didnt help i went from cutting diet hardcore for wrestling to eating w/e the fuck i wanted for the first time in 2.5 years.

    still havent lost the 35lbs i put back on but i look healthy, a lil plumper than normal, but healthy

    i got hit with mad depression from not doing shit, and my body going to shit, along with alot of family accidents and friends deaths. but im starting to get over it all. once i can lift it will all be good.

    my advice is try to look at everything half full, not empty- i know i couldnt do this too well but it does help.

    as for killing the baseball career, idk what to say. i boxed all my wrestling shit up and its up in the attic, it pissed me off
