On April 21st I got my last 2 wisdom teeth pulled. For 6 days I was at a pretty bad calorie deficit. My mouth couldn't open all the way and it hurt to open and close my mouth because it felt like my stitches were cutting my gums. Unfortunately I didn't get dissovable stitches so I had to go back to the dentist 7 days after the extraction Picture of my Lat spread(not pumped) from 05/08/12. After the stitches were removed I still had to chew with only one side of my mouth and it took about 3 more days until I got my jaw to restore it's full range of motion. I lost appetite during this time because it was annoying and hard to eat. Literally took me about 2 hours sometimes to finish 1 meal. Anyway I don't have anymore teeth to remove so nothing can slow me down again! I was on a break for 11 days and just got back to gym last week. Now I'm on my 2nd week of gym again. Getting my strength back up to where it left off. Thinking about starting Wendler's 5/3/1 program to improve on strength. Watching Matt Ogus's progress has really had me leaning towards that program. Can't wait to see what will become of me in a year from now. :) Anyway here's an update photo of my lat spred(not pumped from 05/08/11.

Today's leg day. Going to log what I did after my leg workout which won't be till 8:30pm.


  1. Hey Neil, it's Johnny. Great to see that you are back on progress!

  2. Getting your wisdom teeth pulled sucks.. what sucks more is having to take time off from the gym! :) Glad to hear your back to the gym already
