Man, I really hate these fashion forward chore coats where the length of the arms is longer than the body length. Bro, do they have a canvas version of this? For some reason, I'm not a fan of denim jackets but love denim shirts.

Which hamstring stretches work best for you guys? Seems mine are always tight no matter how much I roll them.

downward facing dog after doing pigeon to open my glutes.

Do RDL's. A lot.
Even just an empty barbell. Nothing works as well for strength, stretching, mobility or whatever you wanna call it. It just helps a ton with "feeling" your glutes/hams.

I just had a eureka moment with 99% lack of elbow/forearm pain. Side note: can't believe how profound chronic pain relief must be for people seriously afflicted with it.

Musculocutaneous nerve compression. I've been flossing out radial/ulnar/median/axillary, but not that one - I learned of it watching a random shoulder anatomy video; causes pain in arm flexion and forearm supination. For all of the fucking shit I went through regarding if what I had was elbow tendinitis/tendinosis, thoracic outlet syndrome, or an endless arrays of trigger points.... and on top a pisspot full of money spent on ART and anger/depression/bad feels, it was one fucking nerve that got fucked somehow and a few days of nsaids + nerve flossing did it. The motherfucking year-long injury that I sustained at the end of October 2013, flushed a year of progress and set me back is all because of that mother fucking shit bitch ass cunt nerve and my stupid ass for trusting other people to fix it instead of relying on myself. fuck

Lessons learned: fuck medical professionals, and fuck me for being dumb about rehab. Inform yourselves because nobody gives a shit about your injury except a) you and b) people who want your money. and for fuck's sake, don't bitch about a week off or a bad gym session, and unfuck yourself as soon as you think you might be hurt because mother FUCK I would not wish this upon even the dumbest of fucks in this thread.

Going to play it safe since my extensors don't feel quite 100% at full-on deathgrip, but I feel like I may actually be able to lift things again.

I hate Mondays at the gym. Like 50% more crowded than the rest of the week.

Don't stretch your hamstrings, they feel tight because they are weak. Work them out. No one should ever stretch hamstrings, ever.

Pulled 180x10 210x3, 160x16 beltless today. Had to use straps because i tore a callus last week and it's not healed yet. Deadlifted and squatting basically every day this week to assert my dominance in the gym so all the freshers think im stronk. Don't want to show them my pathetic 100kg for like 5 bench press.

When I deadlift I usually shout "up" when I start the pull. Had some guy ask me why I say up when I pull. Very weird question, obviously it has no real purpose, it's just what I do.

I'm going to play rugby again this year. Will be on the bottom team obviously because I have no idea what im doing, will be hilarious playing with a bunch of 140lb dyels. I'm big enough to be a prop, which is nice.

Please elaborate on this.

Fuji, hooker is a million times better than prop, much more mobility.

However, the most fun position is undoubtedly blindside flanker. Seriously the best position in any sport.

With that said Id be extremely pissed off if anyone I played rugby with was juicing so maybe you should leave it.

Just got back from a sports chiropractor and strength training consultant. Had a pretty depressing but well needed discussion.

Knee problems prob caused by overtraining. No squats and deadlifts for another 2-4 weeks. Just pump and circulation training, very light weights and high reps in machines coupled with cycling. All lower body gains lost. Almost certain that means no PL meet in Nov frown.gif

I'm also proper fucked up in terms of body alignment. My hip is tilted and rotated, right shoulder tilts forward causing the right side of my upper back to "point out" (aka minor scapular winging) and my spine has a small sideway curve.

The man has worked with most of the powerlifters in my club. He even used to set up a table there and massage during training sessions. He basically told me that every tall lifter he knows has been injured, mostly due to worse leverages and relatively smaller wrists and joints. Every somewhat good powerlifter is short and thicker built. Told me I've "chosen the wrong sport", lol.

He is about as tall as me, same build but 40 pounds heavier, suffers from chronic elbow pain and had to give up his PL training.

Feels like a bright future.
