My left shoulder dislocated while I attempted to see if I could do a chin up...which answers that question. Now I have to see a doctor at some point, because I'm fairly sure that shouldn't have happened.

The dislocated shoulder or attempting the chin up? :-?

The shoulder. I didn't think I'd be able to get the chin up but wanted to see hwo close I could come. Got about 6" off the floor and my shoulder went out. Painful. Putting it back in was also painful. Can't tell which was worse.

I was leaning more towards attempting the chin up. :P

My work vehicle died today.

Maybe this means I won't have to drive a crappy old PT cruiser any more! Just wish I didn't have to get spray in the face with smoke for it to happen.

We've started trying to use the SMART template to evaluate goals/objectives at work. Usually I hate, hate hate buzzspeak with a passion, but I kind of like the idea of making sure our goals aren't just frigging stupid.
But damn it's a lot of work to go through each goal and evaluate if it fits those criteria.

Are you sure you don't mean a pullup? It would be strange though not unheard of to dislocate a shoulder during a chinup (which primarily engages the biceps) whereas the pullup will utilize the shoulder, traps, and recruit some other muscles depending on how much range of motion is induced. Question: Were you performing these 'cold' such that you didn't warm up the muscle group with lighter weight or at least mobilize the joints? Also, in the future consider doing negative reps first to train yourself to do these; get a chair and hoist yourself into the "up" position, then as slowly as possible, lower yourself. That's 1 negative rep and it's a great way to develop the strength to do these unassisted.

I had been warmed up prior to attempting it (had just finished building my power rack, which involved lots of movement, lifting, carrying, using tools, etc).

I had a narrow (slightly less th an shoulder width) chin up grip in place. I'm going to try to do negatives or use bands or something and see if that's still a problem...but first I'm giving it a couple days.
My shoulder's always been easy to pop out, particularly my left one, but I'd though the OHP work I'd been doing would be enough to have helped with that...oh well.

Hopefully I can do a max out on bench today though :D I'm curious if I can still even do body weight (probably not).

Preliminary survey tally in Colorado Springs, as reported in today's news: 346 homes up in smoke, and all within a span of about eight hours. That's California-scale. In fact, the early photos even look a lot like the Scripps Ranch photos from 2008.

So far, nobody I know has been directly affected although one of our clients in that area has a couple personnel affected by the evacuation orders.

I couldn't have picked a worse time to move. I took last wed, thurs, and friday to move. The heat index was well over 100. I lived in a renovated attic apartment. My programmable thermostat read 120 in my bathroom. I had to move everything down 3 flights of stairs into my new place. Brutal doesn't begin to describe the pain and frustration that was. At any rate, I'm in and adjusting. Lots left to do. The worst was moving all my weight equipment.

Did you keep power in Pittsburgh, at least? Here it's been off for four days and it's supposed to stay off for five more.

My previous rental flickered a few times, the new place has been rock solid so far. Lots of friends in the surrounding states have been without for a bit. One friend had to throw the entire freezer's worth of food away. That sucks so much.

I feel for those that don't have power. Would be pretty rough here without power right now. >100 everyday with ~50-60% humidity makes for a pretty undesirable, at least for me, outdoor experience.

This is like 5 months and some weeks. She's barely showing and I think she's a bit frustrated. But it's good overall; she took her obgyn's advice to start walking with me and she's actually the same weight as she was when she got pregnant :lol: So at least she's healthier.

Woohoo! I watched the stream of the presentation this morning and the guy was so excited throughout the whole thing you could tell that all he wanted to do was shout out, "we found it!!!"

Haha I watched it too. He was all over the place. I graduated with a BS in Physics and that guy was worse than any professor I ever had. Really cool to watch though.

Now they have to do the grunt work to figure out if it does what theory predicts. As for now, all they've done is find a particle at 125-126 GEv.

My home gym is finally more-or-less finished :D

Image

there's some other small things I want--ab straps to hang from the chin up bar for instance--and I'll need to buy plates as my strength grows but it is pretty much done. Nice and basic.

Plus I can clean cages between sets since its in the snake room :lol:

Doing PhD sucks. That is all. Writing this at 4am in the night. Yet another night full of work, cheapo coffee, no appreciation, no money.

Don't be a sucker like me. Choose wisely.
