    so im getting back into lifting after over a year off. and over a 5 years of no military press ( back injury).
    I guess the weight im doing is decent. but it SUCKS compared to what i used to do.. so i dont know wether to be happy because im getting stronger at it. or pissed off because i cant do what i used to do... mother fuckers...

    Give yourself time. You're not going to lift what you did right off the bat, just accept that, you're a noob again essentially.

    Alot of my strength is back..but not all of it.. IE the weight i was repping for 12 on bench.. im moving for maybe 4-5 reps.. oh well. it will come back... i still hope i can rep 5 this year on bench:( even if its just for a few reps.

    I took almost a year off, due to hip and knee injuries. So I know exactly what you mean. I'm embarrassed to bench now :greddy:

    You know what irritates me? I was testing a new product and thought i would go for a new PR. I blasted my old record by 25lbs. I thought i was doing good until i found out that the 7' bar only weighed 25 lbs. :rofl:

    It turned out to only be a 5 pound improvement :hs:

    yeah, it makes me mad... or when i have a bad week and i'm wondering why the weights i was lifting the previous session seemed almost easy, but i'm struggling now...

    THAT pisses me off

    Kit, well wow was more an enabler.. i started playing. so if my training partner wouldnt show.. i would go home to play instead of going to gym. and it basically got worse and worse;(

    Were you part of a raiding guild? I raided for about 6 months on a warrior. I would skip workouts so I wouldnt' miss a raid. I finally quit for about 3 months. I came back last June. Rolled a shaman. I only pvp so its' much more casual. Raiding = addiction but pvp = fun :wiggle:

    I dunno if he's doing 455 for 6-8 reps raw though, he's a monster bencher either way.

    Reaper I didn't know you were a WoW addict :p
