    Hey guys!

    Iím still training albeit not as often as Iíd prefer. Schools in my area are still 100% virtual and since my son is special needs it means Iím sitting beside him through the school day. Itís pretty much crippled me as Iím having quite a bit of trouble walking.

    I did find out the underlying issue that is causing the numbness, tingling, and weakness in my left leg the past year: thereís a herniated disc and a facet cyst pressing on my L4 nerve root. Nasty bugger! In addition to that they tell me spondylolisthesis (think slipped vertebra so that my spine isnít lining up any more) and thereís also some stenosis. Iím over the shock of it. Went for a surgical consult as well as a pain management consult. Neither one of them felt that surgery/injections would restore the lost strength in my leg, so I found myself an old physical therapist who gets it and has been helping me quite a bit. Still not walking well: a few steps without a cane but Iím more confident with the cane and I have nothing to prove by staggering so the cane it is.

    Surprisingly, I can still train ok, at least enough to stay in some kind of shape and make the 20 year olds look lazy LOL! A couple weeks ago I felt good enough to start deadlifting off the floor again. It wasnít much, just 135 and I only pulled it for a few singles, and conventional (eeew). Vid is on my Instagram page if youíre interested.

    I trained legs today. Some single leg squat variations with no weight. Tried Hacks with just the empty sled but still no bueno. Unilateral leg press on the assisted dip machine because the back still doesnít like any other leg press variations. Bunch of BW glute things and finished off with some abs and calves then a 1-mile hobble on the treadmill hanging on the rails. But I got it done and for that Iím proud.

    Tomorrow Iíll do some upper body things.

    Thanks, Swiper. They do suck. It’s hard to hear that I might not walk again without assistance. All I can do is do the prescribed exercises, don’t push through pain like all of us have been programmed to do, and hope the exercises work to relieve the symptoms. Fingers crossed.

    Thanks COG. Some days I’m really hopeful then others I’m just neutral. It’s hard to lose the ability to walk. There’s no easy answer on how to reverse the condition though.

    Thanks for that vote of confidence, COG. I sure hope so. I know for sure I won’t go down without a good hard fight.
