      Saturday

      Arms

      I'm putting in three days so I'm not going to break down the workout but I will say it felt awesome to be able to go heavy again on the workout. I was surprised I had very little pain if any during the workout. After the gym I also went home and went for a short bike ride but that felt pretty good.

      Sunday

      Basketball

      First game back and flicking my wrist when I shot hurt a lot at the beginning. I didn't think I'd be able to shoot during the game but as I shot during warm ups it started to feel better and I didn't feel it too much during the game other than the flick feeling a little weaker than normal. My legs held up ok, not great but they weren't as lazy as I thought they would be. By the end I was dying but I heard some other guy who plays every week also say he was tired so maybe it was just a faster paced game. I did tweak my knee and ankle a bit during the game which didn't help.

      Monday

      Bike ride, tennis, bike ride

      For whatever reason I skipped the gym, I had it in my head I wasn't going to go but that I still wanted to be active. I'm kind of glad I didn't go, my legs hurt in the morning from basketball. The bike ride was rough, my ankle hurt, my knee hurt, and my wrist hurt. But I made the best of it, did some tricks but backed out on some too just because my confidence in those parts hurting was low.

      Got home and was invited to play tennis, I didn't really want to play but I was happy I did. Again my pinky hurt while swinging but once warmed up I felt good and played good. Funny enough my knee didn't hurt during tennis. It was humid and I was covered in sweat by the end. Later in the day I decided to hop on the bike again, it was a short ride to the local park to do some tricks on the park bench but the ground was too soft and wet and the bugs were out of control so I didn't stay long.

      Tuesday

      Chest/shoulders/tris

      Wednesday

      Basketball

      I made it a point to not do anything overhead or any free weight chest movements in hopes to not hurt my shoulder anymore. I did a pretty good job of it but got a bit carried away on the hammer strength press, I think I added too much weight and while it didn't really hurt, it went to the numb feeling shortly afterwards.

      Played basketball on the new night and new gym last night and it was ehh. The gym is small and the floor isn't a wood floor, some guy installed it himself as he turned an old church into a small gym for himself and his kids. IMO the court is just too small, it's difficult to move around, anytime you want to cut or anything your running into ppl and even quick passes now get picked off that would never get stolen on regular courts. But the scary part is the floor is this plastic type stuff and it was humid, so as we played the floor got slick and it was scary, there was a few times I went to plant my foot to make a hard pass and it was like socks on a hardware floor.

      Thursday

      Deadlift 4 sets
      Leg press 4 sets
      Lat pulldown 4 sets
      Leg extension 4 sets
      Lying leg curl 4 sets
      DB curl 4 sets
      Preacher curl machine 4 sets

      Farmers walk 3 sets

      I had no idea how this was all going to workout. I wanted to deadlift but pulling with the shoulder the way it is could of gone horribly wrong. I thought maybe I would have to switch up my grip or something. It all worked out though, I didn't go heavy at all but my shoulder also didn't give me problems. In some ways with the farmers walk I'm wondering if it helped. It hurt at points during the day but after the workout I had no pain and it felt somewhat good. The workout as a whole was decent, it was pretty good for playing basketball the night before and having my legs being sore already.

      A lot of ppl swear by the way their joints feel while on a laxogenin product but I haven't gotten that relief just yet from the product, which leads me to believe there might be a minor tear instead of just joint point.

      Friday

      Bike Ride

      Saturday

      Arms

      Sunday

      Basketball

      Friday I had the itch to ride my bike, I didn't have plans to do anything that night so I went home and hopped on the bike, it was awesome, I rode for a long time and went to places I used to ride as a teenager, I really enjoyed myself.

      Saturday was arms and it was a good workout, really solid even though I got to the gym late and it was packed but it was still a good workout, planned on riding my bike afterwards but I had a headache the rest of the day, probably from overdoing it the day before.

      Sunday was a disaster, I played basketball and that was going great, it was a good game, I was running all of the place. Then I made a move, went up for a shot and landed on someone's foot and rolled my ankle. At least I hope I rolled my ankle only. It wasn't all that bad right after the game but as the day went on the soreness came, I kept compression sleeves on it all day, soaked it in Epsom salt, took an Epsom salt bath and took anti inflammatory/pain killers. Slept with a compression sleeve on last night and that did little good as I woke up this morning with a softball sized ankle. The worst part is i'm getting random pains up my leg too. So i'm still iffy if i'm going to go to the gym today, I feel like I can work my upper body no problem but moving around the gym will be tough and if I want to avoid instability from lifting plates and use just machines, I need to go upstairs which isn't fun, so we'll see.

      Monday

      Off

      I had to take the day off from the gym, my ankle was super painful all day and getting out of the chair was a rough go all day. So instead of hobbling around the gym and getting in a crappy workout I skipped it. I didn't feel so bad though since I rode my bike on Friday for like an hour and a half on Friday. I went home and still did some band type work just to stretch and get loose a little. My ankle feels better but it's still painful, I'll still be struggling at the gym tonight but not nearly as bad, hopefully as the day goes i'll be good.

      I also started Black Lion Vector yesterday, I had it in my head I was going to start it yesterday and even with the ankle I figured i'd still get things started as I wanted to bridge it with Follidrone. I also still have some Iconogenin left as well, so I'm still going with that.

      I haven't weighed myself in awhile and with the injuries and all that stuff, I feel like I've been more active doing different activities all while increasing my calories, maybe tonight if I remember so see where things are going.

      Tuesday

      Chest press machine superset w/ shoulder press machine superset w/ push down machine 4 sets
      Cable fly superset w/ side lateral raise superset w/ underhand extension 4 sets
      Mid cable fly superset w/ facepull superset w/ rope extension 3 sets
      Rope extension 3 sets
      Fly machine 3 sets

      My ankle is doing a lot better but it was still swollen and still painful so I didn't want to play with walking around the gym holding plates and possibly bumping into something. I was still worried about my shoulder as well. So anyway the chest work was great, the squeeze and contraction was really good. The shoulder press somewhat hurt a bit however my shoulder is starting to pop sometimes so I hope that's a good sign. I did stay extremely light on the shoulder press and really controlled the movement so I could know where the pain was coming and where it wouldn't. It feels like it's right in the middle of the movement. Everything else during the workout felt pretty good though.

      For cardio I wanted to stay off the foot so I rode a stationary bike and felt no pain doing that.

      Wednesday

      Lat pulldown 5 sets
      Close grip lat pulldown 4 sets
      Seated high cable rope row 4 sets
      Rope pulldown 3 sets
      DB curl 4 sets
      Preacher curl machine 4 sets
      Leg extension superset w/ seated leg curl 10 minutes

      Ankle is better but still not great. I started taking the stairs at work and I'm able to move up and down them somewhat normally which was good but still a bit worried about carrying plates around the gym or stabilizing on it with big weights. I went with a lot of machines or cables because changing a pin isn't a big deal. The only thing I did standing was the db curls which isn't too bad. Its supposed to be back/bis/legs and I knew back and bis were doable, I wasn't sure about legs, I wasn't about to squat or even leg press so I held them off until the end and did the extension and curl, had to fool with the padding a bit so it didn't hit the ankle and actually worked out pretty good, I didn't count sets and just went for 10 minutes.

      I don't know if it's the vector or what but the last 2 days including my bi's and legs have blown up while i'm working them. Giving me a pump I really haven't felt in awhile, however I've also noticed the pump doesn't really last long but even with the injury the pump makes me feel like i'm doing something rather than just going through the motions.

      Thursday

      Side lateral raise 4 sets
      Hammer strength press 4 sets
      Peck Deck 4 sets
      Reverse Peck Deck 4 sets
      Reverse Peck Deck 4 sets
      Wide grip extension 4 sets
      Underhand extension 4 sets
      Fly machine superset w/ rotator cuff work 3 sets

      Finally touched a plate for the first time this week loading the hammer strength and still had to be careful of the legs on it. The workout wasn't the best as my shoulder is still giving me some problems. I thought the hammer strength helped with the shoulder but I think it's the decline hammer strength because the regular one we have the hands are far back and getting it off to start the set is the toughest part. The rest of the workout wasn't bad, the peck deck felt good and even the fly machine was nice.

      Saturday

      DB curl superset w/ rope extension 4 sets
      BB curl superset w/ underhand extension 4 sets
      DB hammer curl superset w/ overhand extension 4 sets

      Bodyweight squat superset w/ behind head db extension 4 sets
      Farmers walks superset w/ wall angles 3 sets

      I must have been super tired or really needed some rest because I'm usually at the gym at 8 am on Saturday, as soon as it opens. Friday I passed out at like 1030pm and didn't wake up until 8am Saturday morning. I like getting to the gym early when no one is there but I didn't mind the extra sleep, the body is telling me something so I probably should listen to it. The workout was pretty good, nothing really bothered me during the workout all that much. I figured I'd test my luck on the ankle with bodyweight squats and they went pretty good, my shoulder also bothered me and that's why I was doing some wall angels.

      Later in the day I was doing yardwork and taking out air conditioners around the house. My ankle started to really bother me, kind of went numb so I decided to relax on it the rest of the day.

      It's been a week adding Vector to my supplement regime and I must comment that the hunger increase this last week has been crazy. I'm hungier soon than usual and a normal snack like a protein shake or protein pudding really doesn't satisfy my hunger like it normally can. I'm just hungry 10 minutes later again.

      Monday

      Chest pad t bar row 4 sets
      Lat pulldown 4 sets
      Hammer strength low row 4 sets
      DB curl 4 sets
      Preacher curl machine 4 sets
      Leg extension superset w/ seated leg curl 10 minutes
      Wall ball 1 set

      Kept the structure the same as last week in terms of back and leg day. I went with a chest pad t bar row because your standing on a platform and I wanted to see how it would ultimately feel on the ankle when the weight was lifted and it didn't bother me anymore than just how it feels. The rest of the workout went fairly well, it was a little delayed by one guy who just kept making fun of the owner which is always fun but it slows down my set. I decided to test my luck at the wall balls, I only used a 5lb ball and made sure my feet were planted and weren't going to move at all, it didn't really hurt at all but still iffy on if I would be able to squat on it, may try deadlifts before I try to squat.

      Tuesday

      Bike Ride

      In the afternoon I went outside at work and it was really nice out so it started brewing in my head that maybe I should ride my bike and take advantage of the nice weather. It's been really cold here so i'm not sure how many more decent days we'll get. Also the weather channel said Wednesday was going to be colder than the Tuesday forecast. Right when I was about to get out of work it got super windy and looked like it was going to pour. On my way home I had some water on my windshield but nothing steady. So I hurried to grab my bike and went for a ride, I stayed close to my house in case the rain came. About a half hour into my ride I stopped and thought I should have gone further because it was perfect riding weather, no rain came and the temperature was great.

      All in all it was a cardio session of sorts with some lifting of the bike doing bunny hops and grinds...not to many jumps with the ankle but I did some stuff where the bike got off the ground, quite a bit actually. If I didn't have things to do at the house I would of stayed out longer because I was really enjoying myself.

      Wednesday

      Side lateral raise 4 sets
      Reverse Peck deck 4 sets
      Peck deck 4 sets
      Decline Hammer strength 6 sets
      Incline smith machine press 3 sets (sort of)
      Triceps 10 minutes

      Was hoping my shoulder would be better by now but it's not. It really hasn't been that bad during the day but yesterday at work I did something and it started to hurt a bit. I figured I'd do shoulders and peck deck before any presses yesterday and really got things loose but it didn't really work well, I still felt discomfort. The decline hammer strength didn't bother me all that much, it was everything else. I attempted to see how the incline felt and it hurt, I could do half reps pretty good but if I went to deep in the movement the pain came and then the numb pain.

      The ankle felt good last night, almost no pain. This morning it hurts a bit but it's probably still tight from just getting up so I hope to attempt to jump rope on Saturday and if all goes well, play basketball on Sunday but we'll see.

      I also feel like I'm looking a lot less lean. It could be just from not feeling like I'm able to go super hard in the gym. I am trying to gain some weight so I expect to look less lean but this is different, probably in my head though because of how I've had to structure my workouts. Wouldn't mind getting a good cardio session in but not sure when that will happen.

      Saturday

      DB curl superset with rope extension 4 sets
      BB curl superset with overhead extension 4 sets
      DB hammer curl superset w/ underhand extension 4 sets

      Farmers walks, wall balls, kettlebell swings

      Saturday was the day I wanted to start jumping rope again. I figured it would really help increase my cardio back to what it was. It just wasn't happening. I tried at the beginning of the workout and at the end and it hurt my ankle both times. Even the small jump from the jumprope hurt when I landed, I even tried to do hop on the one foot just to see and i'd get like 2 hops but the 3rd hop felt like I couldn't get off the ground because it hurt. The rest of the workout was good though and I increased my weight on the wall balls. I left happy with the workout but mad that my ankle is still goofy.

      Sunday

      Bike rides twice

      Wanted to return to basketball as well this week. Woke up at the time I would for basketball but figured it wasn't going to happen if I couldn't jump rope. I did everything I could to really warm up my ankle to prevent it from hurting but it just wasn't happening. Once I came to the realization that I wasn't going to play I bundled up and hopped on the bike. It was pretty cold but I got a good ride in and didn't really feel the cold once I got into it. My ankle was still an issue when I was jumping down some higher things. But it felt good.

      Later in the day it was really nice out so I went out again, it was a little less of tricks but more exploring. I went to see if I could find places to ride, it was a bust but again it was a fun ride.

      It was good to get out and get 2 hours of cardio in.

      Bike Ride

      I might try and ride my bike whenever I can this week since it's supposed to be nice. supposed to be...today is supposed to be real warm but it's still a bit chilly out. Anyway yesterday I went farther from my house than I have yet and right when I was as far as I've been, it starting raining which was great. Rode home as fast as I could, wet and freezing.

      I know me talking about riding my BMX bike and doing tricks isn't your typical "bodybuilding" style workout but at the end of the day I'm still getting in some cardio and if your doing tricks you'll using a lot of back muscles similar to a row as well as biceps, obviously legs, and shoulders so if I'm jumping on things, I'm lifting my bodyweight and a 30lb bike up in the air multiple times within a ride and i'm having fun doing it so i'm going to try and do it a lot this week, we'll see if it warms up today or not.
