Release the Thumb! #RoadToRecovery

Release the Thumb!  #RoadToRecovery

Aug 23, 2013

Finally!  I had most of the restrictions removed concerning my hand on my last visit to the hand ortho about three weeks back, so have re-entered the gym and worked cautiously.  As of this afternoon, it has been fully cleared for lifting unrestricted.  I still have to wait until Monday to learn the fate of my knee/knee brace, but everything is feeling better – other than my left leg continues to shrink and my quads need to be re-activated!  I have full movement of my lower left thumb joint and 65 degrees on the upper.  I am getting used to gripping the bar with it.

Tuesday at XSport did light bench and then heavy back/machine chest – at least, as heavy as I could:

  • Bench 95×8, 135 x5, 185×5, 225×5
  • Hammer incline 135×8, 225×8, 315×8
  • Hammer decline 135×8, 225×8, 315×8, 405×8
  • Tricep pulldowns 120×20, 140×20
  • Wide cable rows 2x120x16
  • Narrow cable rows 2x120x12
  • Bicep cable curls 2x90x16
  • Cable pulldowns 2x140x20
