post #38146 of 46410
im going to have to now, sucks lifting with a phone in your pocket. amazon.ca charges megabux for it compared to .com, too bad id get screwed on the duty if i ordered it from freedomland.

ok, can someone more intelligent than myself please explain WTF is going on:

not lifting:
arm in full extension, try to grip something = pain
arm bent, try to grip something = no pain

while lifting:
arm in full extension, try to grip something = no pain
arm bent, try to grip something = pain

this is fucking confounding. used straps and did some deadlifts and shrugs etc this morning and after about 10 mins or so my forearm felt fine to grip something when my arm was fully extended. previously, this was not possible. front raises were also fine with light weights whereas a few weeks ago it would have caused serious pain. the flipside was that something that previously didn't bother me - merely holding my arm in a bent position - is now irritating. so now, 15 minutes after lifting, its reversed again - bent arm, grip something = fine, full extension, grip something = pain.

thank fuck i live in a socialist paradise where i only have to wait several more weeks for my ****free**** ultrasound to confirm fucking nothing and have my doctor tell me im fine. censored.gif

Sure it isn't tendonitis caused by squat bar grip problems? That's what made me literally unable to pick up 20lbs

i wouldn't doubt it. i haven't squatted for a few weeks now so hopefully it pisses off soon. how long did it take for you to get over that?

Damn MarkI transformed from a boy to a man, cut down will be epic

I am at the same crossroads... I'm between 205-210 now but still not strong enough IMO and I haven't been able to bench in weeks. I'm gonna keep bulking until June or so and then cut down. Might cut for like a year (srs) and then just perpetually coast

A LOT of ibuprofen and a month of squatting with perfectly relaxed grip where there was no pressure at all on my elbows.

That's some awesome progress Mark. I know what you mean about the face fat frown.gif

I think it's about time to cut for myself too.

Jarude have you tried these two and seen how they feel? Maybe pulling some space into that elbow will relieve whatever is going on.

For muscle aches and pulls do you guys prefer NSAIDS or naproxen? Tweaked something in my lat/shoulder region and I'm dying from uncomfort
post #38154 of 46410
naproxen is a NSAID
post #38155 of 46410
Yeah I realized that, but there's also aleve and then Advil/tylenol

Also is Bengay or tiger balm etc effective?

I have no idea how all your guys are getting hurt so much. Worst I've gotten is a bit of elbow/shoulder tendinitis and a stiff neck every so often.

That's pretty much what I've got, a sore neck that's creeping down into my lat/shoulder region

You can also eat 4,000kcal/day and have great bloodwork

Everyone is wired differently.
