The Healing Continues

Blog Article ImageThe rehab process has been progressing nicely thus far. The Russian cycle of RDL’s was pretty rough the first couple of weeks, but since then the body has adapted well and the low back has been able to handle the loads so far. The fascia is less and less sore after each lower body workout and the weights are feeling lighter and lighter.

Massage and band traction have been absolutely crucial to the rehab process. One of the biggest battles with the healing process right now is breaking up scar tissue and ensuring that inflammatory waste products get removed from the effected tissue. If these do not occur, the healing process is slowed a great deal and can even go backwards. Massage and band traction have been very effective in accomplishing both of these.

The heaviest weights of the Russian cycle are still to come. This Saturday I have four sets of five scheduled at 595 pounds. Things have been going well in this Russian cycle as of late. The 560 for six sets of five last week was not as difficult as I thought it would be. If things are going well I may go off of the script a little bit and try to hit a personal record set of five on the RDL’s. The best part of training for me is to get jacked up to lift really heavy weights and set personal records. Although this is not the time to get impatient and do something stupid that will set my progress with the injury back, I need to feed that desire inside of me every once in a while that craves the adrenaline rush that goes along with setting personal records. The John Deer hat will be out on Saturday and the AC/DC will be cranked up! I will be sure to post Saturday’s workout on my You Tube page at

This is the part of the blog where everybody thinks I am suppose to say something nice about HMB because I am part of Team HMB. Well, I have news for you. I would be on HMB even if I had nothing to do with the company. I would also be encouraging every person I know that trains to take HMB. HMB is not going to give you outrageous claims. If you are looking for a trendy supplement that is the latest fad then HMB may not be for you. However, if you are interested in a safe research backed supplement that has stood the test of time and will help you train heavier, more frequently and fresher, then HMB is essential to your recovery arsenal. Remember, today’s workout is only as good as yesterday’s recovery. Also, I found a great price on Optimum Nutrition’s HydroWhey protein. I take this three times per day. It is the best protein on the market. Here is the link for it:
