Back when my squat was 500ish and I was split squatting 225 for reps + no left knee injury it would have been much higher I bet.

    Used a basketball hoop backboard and tape (ghetto way to measure). Now its time to make one or buy a real vert tester. Cuz I'm pretty sure I'll automatically get an inch or two higher when I don't feel like any obstructions are in my way. Felt like the backboard of the basketball hoop was in my way preventing me from putting the tape higher. I tried dunking on regulation height and that was no problem at least.

    Then I did 50 reps of the bar on bench to get bloodflow for recovery on hand. Wrist finally feeling a lil better.
    still not bad at this point my friend, Good news being able to do something

    So yeah....I tore my esophagus...

    Woke up @ maybe around 3am on Nov 20th and puked up what seemed to be about a gallon of blood, I drove myself to ER and after bloodwork/xray they saw the tear and said I was on the line of needing a blood transfusion. I got emergency surgery and spent a week in the hospital not allowed to drink or eat anything the first few days, then I was allowed water, then after a week I got to eat solids.

    I'm down to 185 pounds, I look skinny this is crazy. I got allot to say but I'll just leave it like this for now. I'm fuking grateful to be alive, this whole ordeal gave me yet again a new perspective on life. Stay safe everyone, much love.

    ^ Thanks brother

    I got down to 179 body weight at my lowest...Now I'm back up to 186 fasted in the morning.

    I've been lifting / exercising the past week plus slowly getting back into the groove. Still have a long road ahead of me to get back to where I want to be, but I am GRATEFUL I am alive and have my health. I'll be honest I've never been more terrified in my life...Not knowing if you're internally bleeding is a mindfuk. I've thought I was going to die before but not like this. Every night for the past 3 weeks I go to sleep thinking I may not wake up in the morning... ded srs.

    This whole new year I will be taking care of my health in all aspects. I won't even take advil anymore because that causes stomach acid. My life has now permanently changed.

    To anyone else reading out there, be smart about your health and stay safe. There was a point where I thought I may have to stop the heavy lifting in order to live...And I would if I had to...I'd much rather be alive and experience life than lift heavy and die lol...So yeah looks like I've changed a bit. When I went back to the ER I specifically said do not give me any opioids...And I never said that before. This whole ordeal has put things in a better perspective for me. I want to be myself, be sober, enjoy life/family etc. and get as healthy as I can get. I'd also like to find a good wife and have kids at some point (just lol @ marriage in 2021...But I'm srs now). Yep, my goals and life have completely changed...wut the fuk...Crazyyyy

    Thank you brother, I'm finally back to about 90% of where I was almost 3 months ago before all this sh*t happened.

    Been lifting consistently for about 4 weeks now and gains are coming back strong. Also been completely sober the past 28 days. Things are looking good again and I'm grateful.

    Thanks brother and glad to hear! Let the slammin and bangin begin! lol

    You going to physical therapy?

    I got it scheduled next year for my hand, shoulder, back and knee. My doctor spent an hour with me last time I went given the circumstances and we came up with a game plan. I'm already feeling much better anyways. Even though I didn't lift for over two months and lost 20+ pounds my lifts are still:

    Squat - 315+
    Bench - 300 +
    Deadlift - 405x2 with more in the tank

    So as long as no pain and I'm healthy I plan to build those up again all while keeping my mile time under 9:30 (hopefully much better soon) @ 205 body weight

    No I don't feel its needed at this point everything seems to be healing although somewhat slowly, guess understandably considering my age lol. Anyway Awesome to here your heading back just please be careful on deadlifts brother those are dangerous giving the low overall benefit you get from going heavy. I used to feel going max was beneficial but thats really only in strength gains, I guess thats okay in your youth but think about the long term. Anyway glad to here you have a plan.

    Band Assisted Nordic Curls (40 pound band)

    BW x 5
    BW x 5
    BW x 5
    BW x 5

    Split Squats w/ Kettle Bells
    BW + 80 pounds x 10
    BW + 80 pounds x 10
    BW + 80 pounds x 15
    BW + 80 pounds x 15

    Jump Rope
    500 rounds

    - Feeling better, healthier, squats felt easy peezy just gotta take it slow on the weight and be safe. Split Squats feel so much safer than barbell back squats too, just overall much easier w/ form and almost a 2nd nature movement. My hammies are lit! The nordic curls definitely help with the knee and I'm excited to see my vert get higher again.

I used to feel going max was beneficial but thats really only in strength gains, I guess thats okay in your youth but think about the long term. Anyway glad to here you have a plan.
    Appreciate the advice brother yes I'm slowly easing into the heavy weights to be safe. I have an issue not doing deadlifts because they're so much fun lol. I also enjoy heavy squats/deadlifts because of the neurotransmitter response I get after doing them so I'm trying to figure out a way to still be able to do squats without injury and so far its been lighter weight, not even close to failure and split squats cuz they simply don't hurt me at all. I think those combined with heavy rows will keep my deadlift strength up without even doing them, although I'll still do them just not as much or as heavy (most likely).

    Yooooo!!!!!!!!!

    Glad to see ya brother and thanks! How ya been? Hope you've been well!

    A sled is on the list along with much more to add to the home gym. As far as sled work is concerned I have a tire I'm using for light sled drags and or I'll walk backward on my treadmill turned off which mimics a sled pull, very VERY good for knee rehab indeed. Also good for knee warmup before squats, etc.

    Oh hell no I will never rush anything with females again, already made that mistake a few times lol. We really do seem to be living in clown world now, every single girl I've hung out with past couple years is either: unemployed, broke, has a kid, no drivers license, no car, no ambition/hobbies/goals, thinks her p*ssy is all she needs to provide/be equal, whiny, entitled, annoying, negative, a social media wh0re, etc etc etc. Its usually a mix of that list.

    Its disgusting and I blame it on education/society/parenting/social media etc. And its not just females, its males too. I stay away from all people like that because the laziness and lack of accountability is contagious. That movie idiocracy was spot on.

    I know there are still high value females out there so I'll keep my options open hopefully / eventually finding one but I'm not holding my breath lol.

    Worked out for 4+ hours today prob about 3 hours of lifting/calisthenics and 1 hour cardio

    Body weight: 208

    Because I'm strength training again my weight is going up way too easy...I'm supposed to be losing weight here. Very very hungry.

    - Two miles on treadmill fast walk (3mph) incline 1 mile holding light dumbbells / Jogging second mile
    - Shoulder mobility exercises
    - Hip mobility / stretching everywhere
    - Strict overhead press 7 sets up to 155 for 7
    - 6 Sets of Pullups 10-12 reps
    - 5 Sets of Tri cable ext
    - 5 Sets of Curl Variations
    - 3 Sets of Facepulls
    - 4 Sets DB Lateral Raises
    - 3 Sets Light Fascia Stretch Flat bench DB Flies combined with pressing 30-40 reps slow controlled (huge chest pump/stretch)
    - 15 minutes stationary bike
    - 50 Yards of BW Lunges
    - 50 Yards of Side Kicks (opens up hips)
    - 20 Walking Hurdles (hips)
    - ATG Split Squats, BW x 10 3 sets
    - Knee on Bench Split squats BWx10ish 3 sets

    Sup brah, thank you!

    I didn't workout for a few consecutive days so my workload can be abused when that happens. Somewhat sore today mainly glutes, delts.

    Forgot I hit a top set of 165x3 on Strict overhead press also took a 45 pound plate above my head for 25 overhead extensions and 30 presses in a row (random ADD chit).

    Good to see you're trucking along bro. Can't believe this log has been maintained for 10+ years lol. Still remember you giving me advice in my early stages of lifting 6-7 years ago. I'm not sure how old you are now but I think I'm actually older now than you were when I started following this log which is just insane to me haha.

    I don't really use this website anymore (still lift, that's never gonna stop, and mainly just post updates on IG if that) but I pop by here and there and when I log in yours is always one of the few threads I check from my subs because you always had a great vibe and were motivational af.

    I changed my lifting style too after covid. I kind of realized I wasn't genetically blessed to hit crazy maxes... 365 squat and 405 deadlift was good enough for me. Pushing further would've continued giving me random injuries and I wasn't really interested in that further. Focusing mainly on hypertrophy, like you, still squatting but now doing DBs for chest and RDLs instead of deadlifts and nothing lower than 5 reps on anything. Plus a lot of bodybuilding work that I never really put the right amount of effort into when I was obsessed with numbers.

    We're still young bro, let's be jacked and healthy (physically and mentally!) for as long as we can!

    Again, glad to see you're doing well. The world is really crazy as hell, can't believe how much has changed since I first started following your log, but the iron remains our constant!

    LOL!!!! I'm 33 now and yeah its been a while! Glad to see a post from you in here brother, I hope you've been well it sure seems like you have. Great job on the 365 squat and 405 deadlift!

    Totally agree with never stopping and that's part of the reason this journal has gone on for so long. Lets keep going and stay in shape/be strong/healthy. Allot of my peers etc are already having health issues so its a definite wake up call.

    Yes, the weights never lie! Thanks you very much my friend! Pm me or hit up my journal whenever, I'll be here.

    45 min trial ride yesterday, finally got back on the horse (my regular mountain bike, e-bike will have to be repaired from crash).

    Was awesome, best day I've had since my injuries. Wearing a full face helmet now and wasn't even phased at all...probably hit a lil over 40mph downhill. Was a blast!
