Update. My increased volume for back workouts progressing nicely. Finally have decent lats.

Almost broke my back in half, doing out of all the things fucking calf raises on that machine with the assisted barbell ffffuuuu.gif !!!! Totally lost control on first set last rep and as my toes are only a 45 lb plate, i was frantically trying to rebalance. Upper back bent back a little and now it is sore in the upper back region, sort of where Flame is flexing his back muscle.

/i quite ffffuuuu.gif (8)

I hope it is only a sore and nothing else. Also pulled 3 x 4 @ 275 on DL earlier before (calf raises is my last exercise on DL day)... my body weight is dropping though at under 160 lb. Dunno if that is good or bad.

Can someone explain the difference between banded, SSB and regular BB GMs?

Tried all before, banded gave me more of a burn, SSB gave more back activation and BB gave more hams.
post #31071 of 57265
presumably banded provides more resistance at the top of the lift.

In my opinion its a lot of cultural influence and perception. In the UK you may be seen as fit or thin in a good way. But then come to south beach Miami or LA and if you're young you may be seen as scrawny or flabby because a vast majority of people there are very fit and conscious/judgmental of that.

I'm a health nut. I love this stuff. But it's hard to deny that if you eat and live fairly healthy and resistance train and get some conditioning in a few times a week like sprints and circuit workouts, your odds of a higher quality of life down the road are much better than the couch potato who just eats whatever foods in whatever amounts and treats his body like crap. If you're on a clothing forum as serious as this, you should definitely be committed to a healthy lifestyle.

Question brahs. Got elbow tendonitis. Been due for a deload/time off anyway. I'm gonna take a week off. What do I do about diet over that week? I am in a bulk.
post #31075 of 57265
Trying to keep the bulk gains clean? Not really a good bulk without lifting. Maybe try staying away from isolation exercises and stick to compound movements and see if its better?

Mobilitywod.com and look up voodoo floss. There should be one for the elbow. Looks crazy but it works. Restores sliding surfaces and frees nasty bound tissues.

That and joint force by e-pharm.
post #31076 of 57265
Is it true that doing high rep / low weight bicep curls can help with elbow tendinitis? My soreness is on the outside of the elbow. Wearing a sleeve helps a lot but it hasn't cured the problem.
post #31077 of 57265
Tendinitis is simply in inflammation issue. But when you are injured it honestly is best to stay mobile. When power lifting and Olympic lifting athletes are injured they don't just rest and come back when they think they are healed. They facilitate the healing process by constantly mobilizing the injury, working light weight and high reps at low intensity to help it heal. So high rep stuff could help.

But you need to diagnose why you have tendinitis? Too much stress from isolative movements like bodybuilding? Tight bicep femoris/biceps? Probably both and too much inflammation in the diet.

Heat, mobilize, voodo floss, and eat less crap and healthier fats and more veggies and see where you're at.

I never really experienced any good pec growth until I regularly started doing dumbbell flyes.
post #31079 of 57265
I have just been going 100% for too long. I do a full upper body routine 3 times a week. I think once I am healed up I will drop down to 2x/week and see if the gains keep coming and if it aggravates my elbows less.

Yeah thanks for the advice bruh, has helped my pecs. Nowdays I prefer pec deck though, even more isolation.

Suffered on-off for 2 years, but everytime I incorporate this 1-2 times a week for 3x10-15, the pain magically goes away. Might help?

I like switching up between ez bar and dbs.
