    I lifted 12 pounds over my head at the gym this morning. Yeah, I know...

    "big deal, my 4 year old can lift that much"

    Trust me, at 12 weeks this is progress. Makes me happy.

    I thought this thread was about the amount of weight you've gained in the last week.




    Edit: I apologize X. My stupid comment was a feeble attempt at a joke. :slap:

    I'm glad to hear that you're healing from your accident.

    It isn't about how much you lift, rather that you do it correctly...


    Congrats getting this far.

    Just getting my arms above my head without any weights would make me happy. I wish they'd hurry up and get my shoulder surgery sorted. Maybe when it's done I'll come back bragging about lifting 12 pounds as well. Good on you X. Keep it going.

    I figured TheX's workout looked like this. With a Norlin.

    Good luck on your progress. Don't know your situation, but sounds painful. I honestly thought I was going to see a picture of either a baby or an R9 when I opened this thread!
