    ive always felt the dieting adds up after a while. especially some of what you do when younger/dumber.

    seeing meadows be such a champion for bloodwork and monitoring health but pass early kinda stung.

    Intentionally raising and cutting body fat by double digit % points a bunch of times per year can’t be healthy by itself.

    Also, one thing I’ve thought about is, would these guys have died from heart disease at a young age and their lifestyle just expedited it? Like would they have still had a heart attack at 50 but instead they had it at 45? Diuretics causing intense dehydration for that long sure as shit isn’t helping either

    there’s probably a ton of factors as play here.

    Fucked up this month. Not by bad diet or drinking too much, pushed cardio to higher levels while eating less calories than normal(mainly cut out bread)

    Too much soreness to squat or DL in nearly 2 weeks and body is a mess. Moral of the story I think, make gradual changes. Or maybe I’m just getting old.

    Thanks for listening

    Going to see an orthopedic surgeon in 2 weeks. I’m starting to think I may have a torn rotator cuff but won’t know until we get imaging. If I have to have surgery, catch me on the hack squat and leg press 5x/week

    My oly coach had a temper tantrum because all of the people in our club work out in a CrossFit gym and we did the Open for fun. He made such an ass of himself he lost his coaching privileges at the gym (it’s not the first time it’s happened to him) and the club basically folded. So I’m just doing this in the interim until we can figure out a long-term training plan.

    No I’m staying at my gym. We have an L1 oly coach still on staff but she’s just okay and not comfortable programming so looking at online options. May also just mix up what I’m doing a little.

    Starting a new job on Monday so between the coach situation and job change I’ve just been trying to stay moving the past couple of weeks until I can figure out long-term.

    I get that. No sense in adding in another variable. I think the real reason you’ve haven’t decided is because your heart is telling you you want to compete in powerlifting. Listen to it. Follow it.

    some lifting updates*

    i used to be strong with pressing when i was young and shoulder/upper back problems wrecked everything. when i started over in 2015 i maxed 115 and could do about 10 pushups. i have been quietly dreading bench days for years.

    anyways yesterday i got 7 reps of 225 and misgrooved rep 5 which took some steam off. i am hitting some kind of max almost every week the last couple blocks.

    I think Tore my rotator cuff or something. I separated my shoulder about ten years ago and it never really healed right and I think I hurt it lifting my kayak with one arm and made it worse trying to lift through it. Any workouts I can do to keep my upper body Atleast from losing a ton without hurting the shoulder? Gonna focus on legs and cardio guess until it heals

    Try to find some type of pressing variation that doesn’t hurt. For me I can do any incline or overhead with minimal or no pain so I’ve been pushing those

    Anyone ever hurt their palm, specifically on the pinky side?

    [​IMG]

    Specifically im in that outside edge zone 1/zone 3/ pisiform area. hurts if i make a fist or go to grip it. No visual bruising. No idea what would have caused it. Took the last 10 days off of lifting but its still pretty sore when activated.

    Probably your ulnar nerve. Mine flared up so bad I had to make serious changes to my desk setup. Went through a bunch of keyboards, mice, etc… in addition to considering that based on what you do in your day to day, Google ulnar nerve glides and perform them regularly.

    Ortho thinks it’s an AC joint issue first, possibly a labrum tear. Have a follow up MRI to confirm or deny tear. Got a cortisone shot in my AC joint.

    Finally back on the wagon. My whole body hurts, but I'm just going to keep pushing through because it's just some soreness from having taken like 4-5 weeks off of any exercise. I've been going strong for a almost two weeks now. Amazing how fast the strength just came right back.

    Is there a (preferably free) resource out there for workout plans? Looking for something fairly simple (e.g: chest day do these sets at these reps).

    I have a home gym so obviously equipment is limited but looking for some type of plan. Every app or thing I find online looks good and then there's a payment plan.

    Just returned to the gym last week from an almost 5 month absence after poisoning myself and partially shutting down my liver with what was apparently far too much ostarine. Any and all muscle I had gained seems to have wasted away while I was hospitalized or recovering and feels like I’ve been gone more like 5 years and I’m starting all the way over at square one.

    Cliffs: Dabo & Dexter Lawrence are terrible role models and hensleya has a little more time as the king of this thread.

    Sorry to hear, man. I think the more we learn about SARMs the more we see they don’t really have a place in performance outside of one or two very specific instances. They’ll probably be a game changer in the medical community.

    Thanks man I appreciate that, though it’s 1000% my own doing. I was far too lax with it and essentially took the idiot bro salesman’s word that the dosage and combination with other SARMs was totally fine because of his anecdotal evidence. I was taking 15mg of several different SARMs twice a day when a lot of other sources were apparently suggesting 5-8mg doses daily.

    I will say I understand how people get enamored with them because even as just an intermediate (at best) lifter I saw very clear and notable results within just a few weeks and was in the best shape of my life when I started turning yellow and all crashed down.

    I think that’s where it doesn’t have a place in performance. The dose you have to take to get an equivalent effect from adrogens has to be very liver toxic vs an injectable drug that isn’t near as liver toxic. Where in the medical community a person only needs 1-2mg a day due to some illness will avoid any liver toxicity issues.

    Just glad you got it all taken care of for sure.

    this is also super frustrating how many people just push dosages and durations of drugs without any thought to bloodwork, need of the athlete, risk tolerance, etc. A whole lotta trash in the fitness world just pushing shit

    The Polish sumo God hit an 1107 pound pull.

    WSM announced events today, awesome that power stairs are back and doing a flintstone press you can do forwards or behind the neck. Other 4 finals events are yoke to farmer’s, DL for reps, bus pull, and of course stones but gotta carry them a short distance.

    There’s 2:

    Elbows when doing tricep exercises. Pain feels like I bumped my elbow into something

    Right arm lower bicep area closer to the forearm. Can really feel it when flexing the bicep and when positioning the arm like an L and twisting the wrist from knuckles position up to down.

    I can do dumbbell kickbacks with no issues as well as close grip bench

    Standing dumbbell curls and hammers and then back workouts including rows are when biceps get targeted.

    Behind the head single dumbbell seated extensions and incline bench, flat bench, and flys for tris

    Like One Two is getting at could be some
    Overuse type pain. Maybe lower volume a couple weeks and see if that relieves it then try to build tolerance back up? Or just go see a PT and just do what exercises you can do pain free

    Frankie Carbone that is a shitload of isolation work imho. I would just completely cut out isolation work for awhile (like at least a month) and then ease back in and land at much lower volume. Your compound lifts are going to be just as effective at building mass if your form is right. Keep the bis and tris moving to keep your tendon from tightening up. You can alternate ice and heat 10-20 minutes each a couple of times a day to help it heal faster.

    I’m almost certain the issue is the soft tissue isn’t able to keep up with the consistent increased strength workout to workout. I’ve been on a 6 year hiatus and have gotten back into it as of mid January and whooboy is muscle memory kicking everything else’s ass. Main problem is trying to scale back as it goes against how my mind was trained to be.

    I’ve been running hot water on the area during showers and taking vitamins that are “good for tendonitis” but not seeing any improvement. As long as it’s not getting worse I guess.
