Like the title says, my upper left leg injury is getting a lot better. Not quite yet but getting there. I took like 3 weeks off of lower body lifting completely and that seems to have helped a lot. I might be good enough to get back into lower body lifting this week, but I think it’s a good idea to start off light, we’ll see.
My left shoulder has gotten a lot better too so all of this is getting good.
I knew I never needed a doctor ’cause I knew these would be pretty healable. Remember, when you’re hurting whatever bodypart is injured, you gotta stop exercising that body part completely so it can heal faster. Training that injured body part is not going to make the injury go away.
I’m feeling real good now. I took two weeks off from the gym completely so that really helped a lot. I’m probably gonna get back to the gym this week but I’ll probably lift everything real light, we’ll see.
Who knows, I may be good enough to get back into heavy lifting again. I really want to get back into heavy lifting ’cause it’s holding back my powerlifting numbers. I’m feeling real good now, though better than I was before.
I’ve had minor injuries like this in the past and I learned that the only way to get rid of injuries faster is to stop training. You might lose muscle or a little strength and sometimes you get even more strength when coming back from an injury. Usually many lifters come back stronger in the gym after taking time off from the gym due to an injury so you shouldn’t be worried about losing strength.
Hopefully I still have my 300 lb. deadlift. I smashed a 300 lb. deadlift single in the past a couple of times and who knows, I could do it again. I’ll wait to do leg day and back day on the weekend to give more time for this injury to heal all the way.
I’m gonna go to the gym for chest day tomorrow. I miss the weight room… I hate staying out of it. I hardly ever take time off from the gym but it’s usually ’cause I’m either injured or not feeling good or on vacation somewhere… back to the gym tomorrow.
