    Yep.

    I suffered a bad knee injury, last 8 weeks I was captain gimp.

    Now I am slowly climbing stairs again.

    Back at it!.

    There is no shame is letting your body heal.

    I've been letting my body heal for the better part of three years now.

    Just like how I've been in the process of quitting smoking.. for the last... .. 17 years.

    I guess this injury happened at the best/worst possible time.

    I'm about to take 4 weeks of vacation. So I definitely have the opportunity to rest up. (And I wouldn't have been near the gym anyways)

    BUT... It means I probably won't be able to go water skiing, or tubing, or do anything with the horses the entire time.

    I'm pretty bummed out.

    Has anyone done Ketogenics?
    I'm 2 months in, track my macros daily. Have a cheat day every 2 weeks.
    Down 16 lbs so far.
    My strength took a shot kicking when I started, but I am just now getting it back and setting new 1RMs.
    Curious to see if anyone else has tried

    I do more carb cycling than keto. The key is supplementing your carbs with lots of healthy fats. That will help your strength. A lot of people think they just need to cut their carbs out. Without the fats you leave yourself nothing for energy other than the fat within your body which is hard to break down for immediate energy useage.

    Went to the gym for the first time since my dislocated shoulder. I had been off for exactly 8 weeks. My deadlifts were fine. My squat was pretty close. My bench obviously suffered... Plus I didn't want to push it for fear of re-injury.

    I started with 1 plate, and my shoulder hurt like a bitch. Eventually worked my way up to 175-200lbs. Didn't bother trying to go heavier. I found that my shoulder hurt less with more weight. Don't know if that's because I was already warmed up... or just being more careful with my movements on the heavier weight?

    Also, most of my accessory work was fine. Except pectoral flies... Holy. haha. And my standing barbell curls were rough too.

    I'd keep it light for a couple months on chest especially after an injury like that. I made the mistake of trying to ramp up too fast back in Feb and ended up tearing something in my shoulder. Haven't been back since.

    It was stupid because I'm usually careful and methodical when going back to the gym after a long hiatus. This time, I got really greedy and was doing 2-3RMs the second week I was back. I usually don't attempt them until I can do 225 on a flat barbell for 12 reps. That way, I know my joints and tendons are good and ready.

    Now, I have a lot more time for mcdonald's and dim sum.
