    2020 journal, recovering from a hamstring tear and other fun

    2020 got off to a pretty bad start when I tore my hammie in 3 places right around the new year. Almost 3 weeks on and I'm finally walking again but a long, long way from being able to train legs.

    I've also had crippling bursitis in my left hip which will need removing as soon as the hammie is healed.


    Anyway, I've been back at the gym doing upper body for the last 2 weeks and this is my sporadic WO journal for this year


    Thursday - Push

    Hammer strength decline, one arm.

    work up to 4 plates a side x 20 reps
    Backdown 10 x 10 with 2 plates and very short rests

    Incline cable press 3 x 20

    Dip machine, one arm at a time 4 x 20
    Pressdowns 5 x 20



    Saturday - Pull

    Hammer iso row, pronated grip, one arm at a time

    work up to 4 plates a side x 20
    10x10 backdown with 2 plates

    Hammer pulldown 3 x 20
    Pulldown machine 3 x 20

    Curl machine 3 x 20
    DB hammer curls 3 x 20
    Cable curls, various grips 3 x 20

    1.22.20 pull

    Was exhausted and I can tell that not doing legs and just doing a push/pull split is starting to overstress my upper body. I'm going to start doing leg formal rehab workouts as "leg" days as of tomorrow to allow an extra rest day or 2 between upper body sessions

    Hammer high row, freemotion handles, curl grip, reset on every rep, one arm at a time

    1 plate a side x 20
    1 and a 25 x 20
    2 plates x 20
    2 and a 25 x 20
    3 plates x 20

    Much harder than planned

    Standing hammer shrug machine with freemotion handles looped around the handles (allow more.natural hand positon)

    4 x 20 with 2 plates a side. This was ok on my ham

    Seated cable high row 2 x 20
    Fat guy chins aka floor rows 2 x 10

    Curl machine 5 x 20

    Last push workout was

    Hammer Decline
    3 plates a side 2 sets of 30
    2 plates a side x 100 (long long rest pause set with many pauses)

    Dip machine
    Pushdowns/Overhead extensions
    cable laterals superset cable OHP


    Pull workout

    Ok, I have NO IDEA how brian shaw was able to rack pull 4 plates apparently 3 weeks after his hamstring tear, but I'm a little skeptical on the timeline since his massive bruising was gone by 'week 3' and mine is still lingering into the middle of week 4.

    I did rack pulls with 1 plate (LMAO) for 20 slow slow slow reps. Maybe overdid it since it twinges again today.

    Hammer pulldown with freemotion straps 10x10
    Hammer standing shrug machine - 3 plates a side 4 x 20 reps
    Hammer row super light
    cable curls super light

    my ham was pretty twingy today, this morning I saw my ortho who says 6 more weeks before he'd be happy removing my hip bursa to cure the chronic, all consuming pain on the other side. I need the ham to be healed enough to take all my weight after the operation but the left side hip bursa is literally crippling. I'm going to lose literally all my leg size by the time this is done as I cant do anything for either leg currentlly lmao

    Big day (lol) today as it's my first day doing legs since the tear.

    My left hip trochanteric bursitis is crippling still so there's not much rehab happening until that's cut out next week.

    Horizontal leg press , 5 x 20 all baby weight

    Leg ext 3 x 30
    Leg curls 3 x 30 (torn hammie is noticeably weaker)

    Calf raises 3 x20

    Tried to squat the bar but I was so shakey that I only did about 10 reps before calling it. Dont want to reinjure my hammie because I'm shaking around

    I'll try opening next session with 45lb goblet squats.

    Amazing how just a couple of months ago I was front squatting 365 for paused reps. My legs have GONE in barely no time
