At the quad-hip insertion point? Or just in the muscle itself? Prognosis? Rehab I'm assuming. It can't be a major tear.

Squart day. Fucking hyped, can't wait for work to be over. Hitting 290 for reps tonight, one week from today should finally break 300.

This is probably gonna come off as dumb and broscience, but I'll ask anyway:

 

I've read that muscle gains start to come really slow after 2-5 years of regular training. I started to get serious with lifting (proper routine and diet) about a year ago, but had gone to the gym doing shit for 2 years prior to that. Now, I'm cutting which obviously hurt my gains. 

 

Does this mean that I'm throwing away my potential noob gains? Would I count those early years of curls and machines into regular lifting? Am I basically wasting my time and gains cutting at this point (I couldn't stand >15% bf though)?

 

TLDR: Is it the time that you've trained on a good routine or the actual gains you've made that determines when your gains slow down?

 

I probably shouldn't worry about this and just lift heavy and eat well, but the thought of soon getting gains at a snails pace absolutely terrifies me. And yes, my lifts are still low.

Gains are based on how far you are from your genetic limits. Ceteris paribus, you will have fast gains when you first start lifting because you are so far out from your genetic limits (and deconditioned), and as you come closer your progress will slow - recovery time will need to be increased, gains will come slower, more assistance work will be required, etc.

Do what you want. You will be fine.

Jeez, sounds painful.

Same glute activation problem here. Last reps in the set, left knee would cave in and weight would shift onto the ball of my foot. Wound up doing a major deload and squatting off a box with a mini-band around my knees. Pretty ego-crushing, but my hams and glutes are perpetually sore now.

Something to consider is how optimally you are training. I have been lifting for ~5 years now but have probably only been training + eating properly for the past year and a half. Most people probably spend 3-4 years just figuring shit out.

According to the PT/Chiropractor, he'll need several weeks of pure cash injection for me to find that out

At the quad-hip insertion, somewhere in the mess of fascia. My rehab basically consists of 1. learning how to walk again and 2. learning how to activate my glutes

It's the actual gains that you have made. The potential to make the noob gains will always be there until they are fully made.


Some guy at the gym today loaded up 200kg on the squat rack, him and his spotter both ego lifting using 1/2 rom, squatted down, the weight folded him over forward, he couldnt lean back and he bailed 200kg over his head onto the safety pins. I have no idea how he didnt get hurt either from being snapped in half or from it rolling over his neck and head.
