Detectorist, your consistency is impressive! Very nice on the DL PR BTW.

What program are you following? Looks like a modified version of Starting Strength.

Yep. I've decided that doing deads on squat days is silly...for anyone. So squats are every other workout, same as deads.

Good job! You started this thread stating that you were "fat". I'm thinking that you might benefit from some more aerobic type workouts. (Or at least some variety.) When I was "fat", I did P90X then Insanity. Those will rip the weight off of you and you can do them in the privacy of your home. Worth considering. Now I'm addicted to "Spin Class" at my local gym, and I alternate between lifting, spin, and some yoga. Keep up the good work and remember that exercise, diet and sleep are equally important.

Thanks, Fuerte, I don't have space inside to do anything. I agree with adding some aerobic exercises, though....

You might add some tabata squats, 100 burpees races, or some scaled CrossFit conditioning workouts.

There used to be a CrossFit Wichita Falls template that had a couple days of strength and a couple days of conditioning. I just searched, but couldn't find it. Seems that some new guys now have the name "CrossFit Wichita Falls." I did that for a while and liked it. IIRC, I did approximately the Starting Strength Day 1 on Monday, conditioning on Tuesday, SS Day 2 on Thursday, and conditioning on Friday. When my SS stalled out, I used 5/3/1 on the strength days.

You might consider such a program at some point.

NO PR is pathetic!

Besides, string together a whole bunch of those over a few years and you'll be very strong.

Where exact does your arm hurt? Is it at the top of the forearm muscles connecting at the medial epicondyle shown below?

Yep, it's the medial thing on my right arm. Strangely, medium intensity exercise makes it feel better.

I can do palms facing each other pulldowns all day. But palms facing me, it hurts.

Be very extremely careful and conservative with that injury, known as Golfer's Elbow. Those are notorious for taking literally years to heal, if they do at all. I had a case a few years ago that knocked me out of doing pullups for two years IIRC. I think it'll probably still come back if I get careless.

Mine went away during a time of doing Starting Strength, eating a lot, and doing a lot of icing and hard massage. I don't know which of those helped. My guess is the slowly progressing deadlift grip work, along with better recovery from eating like crazy, did the trick. I used a hook grip instead of opposing. I had just had hernia surgery, so was progressing from 65 lb deadlift up to pretty decent weights over the course of a year or so IIRC.

Thanks for the advice, Brad. I may have to submit a workman's comp claim since it happened on the job.

I've got a beautiful set of stainless steel micro plates a guy named 'Herk' gave me. This was when we were on the old Cyberpump web site.

Been sick the last two days with the flu. Hope to lift tonight.

Wow, did you get the flu shot?

Get well soon! I would've thought that'd knock a person out for more than a couple of days. I'm not much for working out when sick, though.
