You were always welcome here. Any slight problems we've had in the past are to me, not something to dwell on but something to rise past and grow from. This is the present and that is all that we need to continue.
In the interest of open communication, and because I do not tolerate childish bullshit here, I will lay some things on the table for others to see. I am well aware that there is some "bad blood" between yourself and some others who are members of GUS. Those people are expected to keep that out of the forum and I would ask them to man up and get past their petty differences. I would expect you to do the very same. And realize that they may be amazed at how we can forge relationships if we do not approach everyone with anger and attack on our minds; but honest communication. Anger begets anger and if you approach someone with anger because you think they have wronged you or they are a bad person, you will never know if your perceptions are right because you will place them on the defensive and they will simply give you anger in return. It's not like someone punched someone in the face, or kicked their dog.
Not everyone can be friends and we cannot like everyone. But we can hold ourselves to a certain standard and I expect that to be carried out here. And if you are one of my crew, an administrator or a mod, your job depends on it. Make no mistake. We are here to help and learn from each other, discuss, and yes, sometimes debate. But let's try not to take it personally. Some of the things I've written here may help in that regard: http://www.gustrength.com/forum:policies
Now, with all that said, anyone who is a dick to anyone else, in person, while wearing a GUS t-shirt better damn sure know that they are not representing GUS. I may be blunt and to the point in my dealings with people, but I do not act like a bully. So I've got all this out in the open so nobody can be tempted to play any social games here. Also, anything I get into with someone is between that person and me. There will be no shouting down anyone who disagrees with me with a bunch of bully tactics. Feel free to post when you have something constructive to say, but I'm not running a cult here.
I think anyone is behaving like an asshole and being disrespectful and I will show them the door. It's not that kind of forum, lol. I don't mean to make you uncomfortable, Suraj, by announcing all this in public but I as I am aware of the problems I am not going to pretend they don't exist. You are welcome here and we are good to go until proven otherwise. That's all there is to it.
If I think, for a second, that any member is being made to feel uncomfortable, unwelcome, etc. without having misbehaved in the forum, I will put a stop to it. There are plenty of forums for assholes to go to, they don't need this one.
About my injury, it is most like a supraspinatus injury which causes a lot of discomfort when I do incline presses/OHPs. There is drop in strength in these movements for me. The situation has improved over the last 2 months and I feel the shoulder getting better.
Parallel bar dips, Decline, and flat presses are absolutely fine and I have consistently gained some strength in these lifts in the last 3 months.
