Your chances of rupturing a thoracic disc are minimal. We see that injury so fucking rarely. See more burst fractures if anything. Thoracic spine is for stability not motion. It's relatively immobile. Cervical and lumbar spine serve the function of mobility.

 

I'll let Teekay talk more about that if he wants.

Yes, but most people have a shitty thoracic curve as it is. If you can do that and can get back to neutral right after and stay neutral, than sure go away at it.

Anyways, a week of doing PRI breathing stuff and ab work everyday has cleared up my back pain.

That article is bad. At least, the bit about the shins being vertical.

By the time I had my first fight in May I weighed 163 lbs and my 5RM on bench around 275. I didn't lift at all between the May fight and the fights in June, so it dropped off even more. I'm probably at around 260 for a 5RM today.

My squat and deadlift kept going up for the first month or so because I had recently reset them after a back injury. They peaked at about 360 for my DL 5RM and 330 for squat 5RM when I was 175-180 lbs. They just kind of stalled there, maybe lost 5-10lbs on the squat by the time of the May fight. I don't think they would have dropped very much if I would have continued lifting, but because I stopped DL is at around 315-325 now and squat is around 300.

I did lose a lot of weight though, so although my lifts went down a lot overall, I managed to keep more strength than I expected when considered in proportion to my body weight.



TL:DR - I lost a lot on my bench but squat and deadlift increased for a while before stalling. I didn't lift at all after May 17th, and that caused all the lifts to drop.

Sucks about your bench. Looks like mine is going to get slaughtered as well as that's my weakest + most sensitive big lift.

Still damn good results though, especially for what looks like a pretty monster deficit (2lb+ a week on average). Thanks for the info

whoever itt suggested I start running again, fuck you

ran 10K which my 1 pack a day lungs almost could not take. surprised though that i made it that far. did not time it because that would have been embarrassing

10k is a pretty aggressive start with a 20-lung-dart-per-day habit

 

just like with smoking, you gotta struggle through the first couple puffs, but it gets so much better

post #46164 of 57266

Lol. Better is a relative term apparently.

Yeah, it was a pretty aggressive overall average, but it is a bit skewed because of the water weight cut at the end. It definitely didn't come off evenly though. I plateaued at around 180 and again at 170. Both times I went on the RFL diet and that got me going again. The last few weeks were rough with my training intensity at its peak while on about a 1,900 cal/day weekly average with low carbs. I was back up to 162 last Friday which is an 8 lb. water weight gain since it ended.

It feels good to be back lifting again though. I'm looking forward to squatting later today as well.

But most importantly, did you win your fight? Also, do you live in Nanjing?

post #46167 of 57266
I'm 2-1 so far this summer.

I'm from Chicago, lived in Nanjing for a few years, and now I'm back working in Chicago. I travel back to Nanjing a decent amount though. My next trip back is in September.

This new episode has a lot of good information, Travis Mash is a great coach.
post #46169 of 57266
Can't be fucked to watch an hour and a half video. Is it another strength coach romanticising lifting saying how the squat is a metaphor for life because you have to stand up?
post #46170 of 57266
Squats went well today.. First PR of this training cycle:
