Default NJI back in the Iron Jungle!

I've had a couple years marred by injury and surgery. Anyways I'm back at it now!

2010: TFCC tear, surgery, & physical therapy for half a year. I couldn't lift for over a year because of wrist pain.

2011: Bulked up to 190#'s





2012: Snowboarding accident. Grade 4 SLAP tear, right shoulder. I had SLAP repair surgery and bicep tenodesis. I dropped from 190# to 160# in 2.5 months. I did 8 months of physical therapy and have now been in the gym for three months.

Right now I don't have any pain and my range of motion is almost all the way back! I can't do squats yet because it hurts my shoulder to hold the bar on my back.

hack squat - 5 sets 20-25 reps
-superset SLDL - 5 sets 20 reps

leg press 690x8, 600x6, 400x8, 100x12
-superset walking lunges 50 yards

above leg press + strips 3 sets.

occluded calf raises
3 sets x 20 reps then take wraps off

occluded calf raises
3 sets x 20 reps then take wraps off

occluded tip toe farmers walk with 45# plates
occluded calf raises
3 sets x 20 reps

Welcome back, great job persevering through all the set backs.

When is the picture from? If it's recent that really shows your dedication but also how muscle memory works.

Those pics are from 2012 in between my surgeries. I dropped from 190 to 160 after 2012's surgery. Right now I'm sitting at 170# and been training for about 2 months. I'm hoping to get back up to 180 in a month or so. Muscle memory is definitely awesome! Here is me currently:
