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 #38152 of 57109
naproxen is a NSAID
post #38153 of 57109
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.

Its all chronic vs acute. Your open to one or the other. Either way we are all headed there.

I'm just pissed that with every injury ive ever had, I was too scared to break myself so I stopped lifting altogether or stopped with the affected area, eg no squats for 6 months. This was the first time I tried to train around my injury and work at rehabbing it and I ended up making it worse. One of these days I'll figure it out.

I guess the good thing is that ive been successfully taking 2 steps forward for every step back, so I'm ahead in the long term... It just pisses me off when I think about all the wasted time and where I could be. Not that I dwell on that at all; I'm happy to have made the progress ive made. I'm just a late bloomer smile.gif
