The only reason I asked was because I had a concussion once and I ended up getting PCS (post concussion syndrome). Basically you feel dizzy, disoriented, and nausea. It is truly something weird, there is no cure for it. They can't even find it on a MRI or CAT scan. But if you had it back in 3rd grade then surely it wouldn't be showing up now. I had it for about 4 months, and every now and then it still creeps up on me.

If you're not going to enter the pain zone on leg day, you might as well go play hopscotch in the parking lot of your gym.

From looking at your workouts It is my opinion you need to stick to some basic lifts like Incline Barbell Press, Bench Press (light right now because of the shoulder) Squats, and Deadlifts.

Reason I say this you need to get those stabilizer muscles stronger. That goes for any of us who has not really been lifting that long. or Really under the age of 21 IMO..... Even now most of us need to continue to do compound movements for over all strength. With over all strength comes mass. Mass Really does not come from isolation movements.

Just making an observation here.
I do, but are you saying do more? Or just cut out the isolation movements completely? Im only 17.

Use a weight that you have to stuggle to the point of breaking forum for the last 2 or 3 reps.

For instance, when i do seated row, i can do the stack + 25 x 12-15 but on a light day i would go about 220, perfect form, full stretch, and squeeze on every rep. The burn is almost unbearable by the 10th rep but that is the feeling you want without taxing your body from heavy weight.

I also prexhaust from time to time. I'd do pec dec or cable crosses for about 5 or 6 sets, squeezing every rep for about 12-15 reps each set. Then i'd go into incline presses or flat bench. You'll find that since the muscle is fatigued you don't actually have to lift heavy for the weight to feel heavy.

Well I did a little legs and abs today. I wasn't that motivated at all....a few months back when I was squating really heavy I pulled a muscle in my lower back and I thought it healed up but when I was warming up with 185 I felt it bad so I just stopped...all these injuries and I'm so young! Kindof depressing. Oh well, gotta push through it.

what I'm saying is at 17 you need to be concentrating on basic movements. What Emeka said rings true but your still a young pup and growing You need to build up a basic structure before diving into all sort of isolation movements. Those are fine but you need a base to start off with.

Not saying to do more. Actually do less with more quality basic movements like Bench Press, Incline Press, Squats, Dead Lifts. and even Power Clean will give you a basic structure.

Honestly this sounds like your not warming up enough or your not using a correct and proper form. Anytime you do movements like squats and Dead lifts your form must be down first in order to go heavier. I would rather see a guy do 50 pounds lighter and correct reps before I would see him do a heavy set with crappy form and run the potential of injury

Don'y shy away from light weight man. Like Mac said, I would rather see someone go light and perform solid reps than to use weight they can barely handle and knock out some crappy reps. I see people in the gym benching, load up 225 and then proceed to bounce it off their chest for a total of 2 maybe 3 reps, and get up like they've accomplished something. Lol. Sorry for the rant, but you get what I'm saying.

Barbell row: 3◊12◊75

Incline cable pulldown: 4◊12◊80, 3◊12◊100

Had a excellent pump today. When I woke up my shoulder hurt but took some moltrin and hit the gym and it feels okay now. I've been using fat grips and its helping me keep with the lighter weight so I wont damage the shoulder more than it is.

The more you get into working out, the more you realize it's a road with many obstacles. Success happens when we learn to break through these obstacles easily and effectively. Having this forum is a great way to do that - support and encouragement throughout your journey. There will always be obstacles but with that can be the feeling of accomplishment and rewarded determination. We all slip up from time to time but the difference between the scrawny guy and the buff guy is the buff guy didn't let his obstacles leave him sitting there on his butt, he plowed through those obstacles with motivated passion and the goal in the eyes. It's easy to get down on yourself for slipping up but we all make mistakes. Make the choice to get up, ready to get the prize you've been waiting for.

I had a similar weekend last year when going on a cut. It didn't hinder it at all in the long run. Day or two after I wa showing to gain a few, but a couple more days of behaving and I had dropped more.

Sometimes we have to eat to loose. It's been proven. I'm still loosing and I do a what ever I want cheat meal once a week.

Taking the week off now to reboot then we are hitting it harder for another 12 weeks.

So sorry that I haven't updated my log in a while guys. I thought well ill get back to it when I'm at 100% again.....still not there. Now not only is the one shoulder not fully healed I mess my other one up playing baseball.....swung a bat and pop.....worse pain I have felt in awhile. Been taking it easy but both shoulders are keeping from being half of what I should be by now. I lost motivation to hit the gym....down in the dump. Hopefully ill get back in the game sooner rather than later. Hope you guys are doing good though. Ill be a little more active now that schools done. Oh and I think I have decided what I want my career to be.....ready? Police officer I think it fits me. Well thanks for checking in guys. Have a good one.
