Danny Bellmore – More Rehab

I just completed the 2017 APF Senior Nationals. With just a small set back the meet went fairly well. I finished with a win in the Masters and the Open. I will be going into a long off season with nothing planned as far as meets go.

It has been an interesting last few weeks. I have been implementing Dr. McGill’s protocol. You don’t realize how bad you move until you really start paying closer attention. The intention is to eliminate the movements that cause pain. Right now, the pain is at the highest level upon waking up. I have adjusted sleep patterns over the last few weeks with very little pain relief if any. Basically, the protocol I am following is laid right out in the Gift of Injury book. I have been starting my days out with short walks to loosen up the muscles and promote blood flow in the lower back. The goal right now is to try to desensitize the pain by avoiding movements that cause pain. It’s best described by Dr. McGill, if you keep picking the scab the wound will never heal. Dr. McGill said that this would be a very humbling experience and to be honest he was 100% correct.

I am still currently waiting on my Jan 2nd appointment with the surgeon for my neck issues. The pain is about the same with fewer spikes since I have not been doing any lifting. Right now, it’s just a wait and see type of thing.

I will update my log every couple of weeks since I don’t have a ton to write about at the moment.

Danny Bellmore

Danny has been involved in powerlifting since 1994. The first swing at a career was short lived due to a major back injury in 1999 that resulted in a 3-level spinal (lumbar) fusion. At that point, he took a 10-year break. Avoiding the gym all together because his body, and back, just never felt right. In 2010, Danny went to handle a good friend at a local meet. That experience re-ignited the fire within and he was back under the bar, never looking back. Danny established an elite total at my first meet back in 2010 and then accomplished a win at the 2012 APF Masters Nationals. Through his win at the APF Masters, he was training using the Conjugate Method, but he wanted a change. He needed a change. Danny reached out to a friend who stated that Brian and the Samson Barbell crew had it going on. In the process of connecting with Brian, he has endured a few setbacks. During our initial discussions, he had torn my rotator cuff and labrum, along with a separated AC joint. The surgery did not "take" and just nine months later, he was back under the knife for a "do-over." During the healing process, he had lost feeling and strength in my right arm. Being pig headed, he waited and waited. My choice to remain stubborn backfired, and I was back in the OR for another spinal (cervical) fusion. Now healed, and a few years under Brian, Danny’s total has moved to 1871 @ 165. He doesn’t like to predict or talk about goals, but he wants more, and feels like he has more. Plans now are to compete at the Senior Nationals in Jacksonville, Florida this June.
