day 2496 – chiro check

good thing i secured a chiropractor appointment now that he’s back in operations. looked forward to getting in and easing my body ailments. i had a list of body parts he needed to check and fix, but i knew very well there wasn’t enough time in one appointment slot. he got a chance to look at my shoulder, knee, hip and back. my body was particularly crunchy so everything cracked with ease as he tried to put things back in alignment. all in all, he’s impressed i held up for over two months because i typically see him much more frequently

day 2492 – lifting duo

i did the best i could and tried not to let last night’s rough session affect my lifts, but can’t say i was too successful at hiding it. apex session was focused on clean and jerks. my lifts weren’t bad, but it took a lot to string together one good clean plus the jerk. i started off slow with the lighter weights but still worked up to a fifty kilogram clean and jerk. it was bench and row day for my second session back at my garage gym. i really wasn’t feeling strong with the shoulder, but surprised myself with a ninety pound bench for three reps. i’m really glad my friend comes to lift with meb he’s probably the reason why i push the weights i do

day 2480 – self cupping

was looking into recovery remedies and remembered my dad had bought a cupping set from china years ago. pulled it out of my drawer and randomly applied some on my ailing shoulder. i had no idea what i was doing, but there’s no harm since it’s been bothering me for months and i haven’t been able to see my chiropractor or physio. part of me hopes there’s some kind of magic or miracle in this

day 2426 – handsprings

after two plus months, i was ready to test out my shoulder with some back handsprings. the first ones were ugly, but it got on track after a couple more tries. i’m very surprised that i hadn’t completely lost it after having to put it aside for months. it’s a feel good training today because everything else also found it’s place. my backside 9 felt as good as ever, my websters had a bit of a breakthrough, combos were smoother and both my front handsprings and back handsprings are in working order again. i plan to have many level ups during this quarantine

day 2363 – shoulder pains

still troubled by the shoulder pain so there’ll be no apex lifting this week. i can only be hopeful that nothing is torn and that i can slowly return to my normal functions. i still hit up nash to do what i could do. a girl, who’s not a trainer at the gym, drove me crazy when she kept shouting out the same instructions even though he obviously didn’t understand the first time. she seemed to think that speaking louder would get the message across

day 2327 – physio revisit

my day off spent seeing doctors with a stick and puck session in between. the last time i was at this clinic was back in march. that time i was already attending to the same ankle injury. the only difference is this time i already know that my ankle ligament is torn and there’s nothing he can do to fix it permanently. he worked on my shoulder and elbow for the longest time before putting my ankle back into alignment, but said i’ll have need to wear an aircast brace for stability. it honestly isn’t something i can accept for the rest of my life

day 2311 – relax and recover

somedays you just got to take care of yourself even if the sky has fallen. i really felt the need to just get away from the negative thoughts and try to do what will make my body better. i need to heal the rest of my ailing body. nothing right now can really change the way my ankle is, but i’ve been reading up on it and getting new learnings. talking to people with different knowledge and experience has also given me more insight and reassurance to some degree

day 1869 – apparatuses

didn’t spend any time at my own desk this morning. i had a good long meeting with the director followed by the bpdt team. constant meetings is very draining so really looking forward to getting off work and onto my way to practice some acrobatic stuff. felt a little tight and lethargic, didn’t really feel good about my back tucks. progress has been really slow, and i’m disappointed to say the least. i’m sure a lot of setbacks as to do with my ongoing shoulder woes

day 1868 – vignette casegoods

checking out the crops of all the hardwork my team and i put into the best western vignette. very pleased with how everything turned out; a big sigh of relief not only because it’s completed, but completed correctly as i shoulder most of the responsibility. a little side tantrum i must release. sometimes when things turn out well, there’s no credit given. sometimes when things turn out well, there’s still complaints coming out of people

day 1835 – bad shoulder

checking into physio because my shoulder is massively preventing me to live my life and carry out my daily needs. i’ve put a halt on all my sports, workouts and physical activities for two whole weeks, yet there seems to be no improvement. did some rotational and shoulder stability stuff with kinesiologist before physio worked on my shoulder, elbow, wrist, neck, and knee. i’m hoping whatever my physio adjusted today is what i need to get me well on my way back into sports
