Weightlifting

I am in the process of rehabbing an injury in my back. My L5 slid forward on my S1 due to bilateral fractures on the little bones that hold it in place. I was told by 2 neurosurgeons I needed a fusion. Yesterday I deadlifted heavy for the first time since injury. Maxed at 365 which is a ways from what I used to do but really awesome for a guy who couldn't even jog to the mailbox less than a year ago. I felt God tell me he would heal me in church one day so even though those little bones are destroyed I'm convinced I'll be stronger than ever. Just wanted to see who else trained in here.

As I type this on my phone, I am sitting on an examination table waiting for the surgeon to come in. I had a knee injury at work 4 1/2 years ago that sent me through 5 different surgeries to try to completely reconstruct it.
One of the best things that I did for rehab wad to start lifting again. My best dead lift was 360 a few weeks ago.
My problems aren't when I strain my knee but when I relax it...it slips out of joint.
God had done great things with my knee and he truly is good. 4 years ago was a milestone when I finally got to put the crutches down after a little over 6 months.

Deep squats with 225 day before yesterday. Rest day yesterday. Going to hit some rope climbs, hanging leg raises, reverse crunches and glute bridges today.

I've had about a five week rest day, haha.

Finally back home and can get back to the gym. Nothing worse than trying to build back what has been lost....

You're telling me. It's defeating to realize how much you've lost. But there's only one way to get back.

Hit a bar muscle up tonight. After rope climbs and pullups. It's good to feel good again. I'm so grateful God has brought me back to here. I didn't think I would ever lift heavy again, and was at peace with it. It was hard at first, it felt like I lost my identity, and then I realized it was a good thing. My identity was in the wrong spot.

I just got to the point where I can do pushups again after being injured. I think I'm going to try to work out my chest and shoulders tomorrow. Should be a good test. It was my shoulder/neck that was hurt.

I think anyone who lifts should see a PT about every 3 months to check them out. I used to have a bad burn in between my shoulder blades when I tried to do anything that caused the shoulder blades to come together. A little myofascial release and it hasn't come back.

Start teaching crossfit this next week. I used to do crossfit, but see it as more of a sport than a legit program for anyone, especially beginners. It's a good gut check though, I did fran the other night, and almost puked. I guess it's not so much crossfit that I don't see as a legit program, as it's just crosstraining, but some things like rebounding box jumps, or heavy lifts observed by someone who took a weekend class to be dangerous imo.

I did a workout before class the other night. 5 rounds 1 min each 185 lb deadlift push-ups and knee to elbows. Sore is not the word for how I feel. I did 5 sets of back squats beforehand to get in some strength work.

Just started taking my training seriously again.

Hadn't had any supplements for a while. Picked up some creatine. My workouts are muchbmore intense now. Feel way more energized.

We've not been able to buy supplements for the past couple months trying to get our business up. I did have 10 lbs of syntha 6 protein to work with though so I guess all I would have bought is creatine and maybe some cla, or fish oil. I can now go from planche to handstand. Back to being able to do barbell rollouts too. Overall my lifts are down a little but my core strength is going through the roof for me.
