holy shit, i think i've found my trigger point for my "shoulder" injury. right underneath the tricep/upper arm near the shoulder/lat. what a bastard, i am going to viciously massage this thing daily.

and dat subscapularis. holy fucking shit i am so excited right now.

maybe this means i can do more than front squat and rdl now? nod[1].gif im tempted to start pressing and pulling again since i am pretty sure this is the cause, common sense tells me to take it easy though.

Putting on a belt subtracted 20 pounds from my squat max...never tried it with deadlift.

Putting on the belt forced the weight backwards on me and caused me to have trouble with balancing. It felt unnatural, uncomfortable, and I wasn't able to lift as much.

That's a good one for me too. But the trigger point work book on amazon 14 dollars and that shot is like my bible, i read it about every week

i have it on my desk in front of me. the shitty thing is that the theracane isn't available to be shipped to canada for some stupid reason, but i have a knobbler. anyways, i just ran through the shoulder/upper arm section without actually trying to look or concern myself with the actual pain referral areas - just a brute force approach to finding a trigger point. it worked icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

That's what I do too. Good way to assess yourself is to find out what areas hurt then check the book about what you can do to fix it. I need a knobbler, does it work well in the pec area? My fingers get sore as fug

edit: just bought one w/e already spent like a bajillion dollars the past week, whats another 8$

Bench press is finally movinggggg.

Hit 310 for three sets of paused triples.

Next week three plates!

Both your lumbar curve and your lockout at the top look better than the last video you posted - but yeah, a little slower might be better.

 

What sort of bar are you using there? Not crazy about what it seems to do to your posture during the GM's.

Safety Bar....they rock!
