    Sweet workouts in here Greg. I like the addition of the leg extension. I regret selling my bench that had the extensions on it. Now I am looking for another one. LoL.

    Sorry that you are going to need surgery. Like you said though you should end up in a better place when you are done. Hopefully you can run once you are healed up.

    I am liking the higher volume stuff as well and like you don't feel as beat up joint and ligament wise.

    Yeah, next time double up on that order. You can never have to much steak in freezer.

    Thanks Shane. Yeah I sold my old leg extension bench to my brother so I had the same regre. I'm enjoying this new one so far. I also like the Preacher Curl pad too.

    Yeah I'm looking forward to my appointment tomorrow to find out if it's going to be surgery for sure. At this point I really just want to get it over. I think doing that and doing the year of rehad or whatever gives me the best chance of getting to run again. From what I've read that could take 2 years to run, but it's much better than never.

    High reps are definitely my friend now. I need to take in more protein to better support the hypertrophy but it's doing pretty well right now anyway...and I really want to keep losing the fat as my highest priority.

    Definitely can't have too many steaks in the house. I'm hungry right now just typing that LOL.

    Thanks Trent. Yeah like I was telling Shane I just want to get the foot/ankle taken care of at this point so I can start the recovery. I'm tired of walking around in pain...plus, hopefully I'll be able to get back to running once I'm all healed up.
    If in doubt, squat and run hills. So you walk into the gym and don't know what to do? Then squat and run hills. Have a miserable day at work and want to break someone's neck but aren't sure who's? Then squat and run hills. - Wendler

    Hope you are doing well Greg. I have been watching the news and seeing all the wild fires out there in Cali. Hopefully they are far from you and your family.

    Thanks guys. Yeah we're doing OK over here. There was a 1000 acre fire about 6 miles from our house a oouple of weeks ago, but they kept it from running up the canyon and into town so we were OK, just lots of smoke. We've been innundated with smoke for several weeks, first from that fire, and then from the bigger fires burning in other areas around here. We're in the foothills up against the Sierra Nevada mountains, so smoke collects on top of us and gets stuck here against the mountains. Needless to say there hasn't been a lot of outside activity for me lately.

    I'm sorry I haven't been in the forums much lately. Work has been a real Bear. I've literally had to work every day for the last 4 weeks, so I'm usually so tired of the computer I haven't been getting on in my spare time.

    I've had some good workouts lately. I changed things up for a while and am mainly doing dumbbell only work (DB BP, etc.) to give all my tendons a break. I'm thinking about doing that for up to 12 weeks. Then I plan to start pushing things again.

    I haven't been able to schedule my surgery yet. My insurance company is balking at paying for the MRI for the surgery. I'm not sure why. They said I have to do a month of physical therapy before they'll approve it. My doctor says that's crazy because physical therapy won't help a torn tendon (which he thinks I have) and will actually put more stress on things. I'm a bit frustrated about that but there's not much I can do about it.

    I'll try to catch up on your journals later today, to see what you guys have been up to. Hopefully all is going well.

    Good to hear that you and the family are doing well. The amount of smoke that people are reporting out there is nuts but I guess that is to be expected with that much of the state on fire.

    I can fully understand the lack of wanting to be back on a computer with you working as much as you have been.

    There is no way an MRI would cost them more than a month of physical therapy, that stuff is not cheap. It might be worth it to call and ask what the cash price is for an MRI. Don't tell them you have insurance or they won't tell you the cash price, I learned that the hard way.

    Good luck with your DB program. That sounds like a good idea and you might actually find some nice gains in there as well.

    Take it easy Greg.

    Dang buddy. Sorry to hear about all of the issues with your insurance, smoke and working every day. Definitely sounds like a mess. Hopefully it will all work out sooner rather than later. Glad to hear that the DB's are paying dividends and that you're enjoying that. Hang in there brother.
