    question/thought: i can't really throw any more. i can still flick my wrist and do the quick catcher's throw no problem, but no amount of warming up will let me long toss without pain. otherwise i have no real pain in my elbow that isn't normal at my age and time working out. i don't really need to throw anything now, but is the UCL important to anything else?


    PS: I've tried googling this and most of what i found was specific to baseball, not performance in any other situation.

    If it stabilizes the elbow I could see it messing with any jerk/overhead motions.

    Absolutely NOT a doctor so that could be so wrong it’s impressive

    Not a doctor but everytime I’ve gone into get one of my shoulders checked on they always get into my UCL as well.

    Apparently if you bend at the elbow and your fingers lose feeling you have a pinch and they’ve tried to reroute it on the outside of my elbow a couple times.

    Unless surgery is mandatory I’m pretty prone not to do it.

    I find when I’m lifting if I’m stacking my joints properly I don’t have issues with it at all despite whatever movement I’m looking to do. Cleans can be a little bit of a pain just because of the movement in general but no issues on pressing movements.

    My non dominant shoulder has been bothering me for a couple months now and no idea when it started. Hurts when I bench (kind of feels like weakness more than pain), when I lie down on it, sometimes when I lift it laterally, etc. Seeing an Ortho in a week and probably going to need an MRI.

    feeling pretty happy with the process lately. when i started bulking in 2019 i was at 175, the pandemic hit and i didn't really cut the bulk off until this year. after 6 months of living 200+ lbs i started cutting. steady at 185 now and visually leaner than when i started. other than a few months of the pandemic i never got really slutty on the diet, just a lot more of the same stuff.

    i wish i could hold that extra 15-20 pounds without looking like a titty boi. short king problems though.

    DOMs are kicking my ass after a hard workout yesterday after Labor Day fuckery

    My YouTube algorithm seems to currently be fixed on old school powerlifting, so many cringy lifts back then but Ed Coan was truly the goat. Squat depth is incredible and every lift is near perfect

    I don’t fuck with strict overhead press anymore. Too many other effective ways to work shoulders that don’t put so much pressure on your body.

    I don’t get why the people in charge thought it was a good idea. All it does is create more division and regular folk thinking it’s bullshit.

    As a complete outsider, absolutely respect Grigsby’s pull but at the same time how do you justify it. He went up 100 pounds in 1 year with that bar which is nonsense

    Also please quit hating on OHP

    Z press then, all shoulder exercise.

    I don’t get saying any bodybuilding exercise is comparable for shoulder strength

    Everything said rest day besides some stupid thought about how great it would be to get my hard deadlift day done on Monday and wouldn’t have to think about it all week.

    Well I finished and they finished me, glutes are absolutely feeling it.

    Anyone dealt with golfers elbow and lifting? Basically took 9 months off trying to rest and that seemingly didn't do shit so I started working out again slow. Knee down push ups, very light dumbbell work etc. and things have been feeling good. Finally got back in the gym last week and it's feeling okay, no pain but I can feel it not being 100%. Appreciate any advice, desperate to get back to as normal as possible, scared as hell I'm just going to continually aggravating it.

    I saw an ortho (who I didn't love) who basically said rest up, here's a packet of stretches, you'll be fine. I should probably see another but feel like I'll get more of the same since I'm not really in pain. I think I'm on the right track just seeing if anyone else had experience with it to see what their recovery was like. I also saw a message therapist a few months back who said she cured her own and others tennis elbow via massage ( a bit skeptical ) but it was solid so I would like to try her again now that I'm back lifting.

    I had some issues a couple years back. The newer research is that rest, while it helps, doesn't actually address the problem. So it simply comes right back once you start loading again. The new recommendations are to do some specific stretches. I got a theraband flexbar and did stretches with it multiple times a day for a few weeks. Now any time it starts to flare up on me, I just go back to it. It works well.
