For the past two weeks, I’ve been trying to get back to doing lower body work but I’ve been trying to get back into it lightly and carefully since I still got that left leg injury. I went to the doctor last Thursday afternoon and the left leg injury is not that serious thankfully. The doctor said the injury would be healed in two to four weeks easily. So thankfully I won’t be needing surgery on this left leg… that’s definitely a big sigh of relief for sure.
The doctor recommended that I go to Physical Therapy and I will do that next week. So back to no lower body lifting at all. I want the injury gone completely and gone forever so I can go back to my powerlifting training for the lower body. It’s holding back my powerlifting training and it’s not good.
I also want the left leg injury gone so I can feel good walking and standing for a long time ’cause I shouldn’t be feeling that.
I took a couple of months off of no longer body lifting hoping it will heal on its own but since it didn’t, I could no longer ignore it and finally decided to see a doctor about it. Glad he recommended Physical Therapy. Physical Therapists are smart and they know their stuff. They can probably fix me up real fast and the injury will be gone quick before you know it hopefully.
I want to get back to big deadlifting ’cause I love deadlifting. Doing deadlifts is my favorite lift and workout of them all. This injury is holding back my deadlift numbers but thankfully, I haven’t lost any deadlift strength. Just last week, I smashed an easy 280 lb. single so I believe I still have the 300 lb. deadlift pr. Haven’t lost it at all and still got it. If you take time off due to an injury you won’t lose strength right away so nothing to worry about.
I’ll get back to big deadlifting very soon, hopefully in March. I need to get back to serious squatting so I can improve my numbers on that too. I want to get back to strength training for powerlifting but gotta get rid of this leg injury.
I’ve gotten back into heavy bench pressing again ’cause my upper body is all good. I’m pretty clear of injuries on the upper body so for now I’ll just do upper body work in the gym only for the time being. I haven’t lost bench strength either as I still got that too.
Soon I’ll get back into deadlifting and squatting again, very soon.
