Hi everyone, 2006 had a second bck surgery this time, the disc was fused. I was pretty much a prisioner started gaining. Al my live I've been in sports then military so this was new to me not moving. I recovred from surgery then started working from home and didn't know how to adjust so I drank coke with burgers ect.
A 1year1/2 ago I decided to say screw the back, if it breaks (I do hve nerve damage due to scar tissue) but I stated cardio everyday and 2 months later started lifting. I was soooo weak lol couldn't lift much, squating 145 was hard I now squat 365, leg press 800+ and bench 245 still a ways to go from benching 315 but getting there. I do more during the day at home, do stairs twice a day for 10 min and takethe dogs for a walk as much as possible and at night its party time at the gym. Punish my body, get rid off the weakness. " pain is only weakness leaving the body"
Served a total of 11 years, medically discharged because of the back. 6 years of those served as an infantry scout assigned to a sniper team. I finally got my swagg back
