Yea, dips are a good indication on what my general shoulder health is like. When I let my shoulders get jacked up they are pretty painful to do. Right now they feel fine, I like them because they require no setup time so work really good in my crossfit/bodybuilding clusters I do after the main movements.

A close grip decline press should mimic the dips movement, right? Also, it feels like weighted close grip push ups work the same muscles for me.

 

It seems like you'd get more ROM with dips but I'm sure it's not that important.

 

I just went for a run, it's 4 here with the wind chill right now. Really sick of winter already.

word. 6" of snow today and -12f with a windchill warning (schools were cancelled for cold) and another 5-8" of snow expected tomorrow. Makes me want to move back home to Sydney.

I feel dips in chest much more than dumbell/barbell presses; especially at the top of the movement.

Fuji: you mainly seem to have manic episodes, do you get depressive ones as well? Just interested

Yeah, I'm type 2 bipolar so the depressive ones are significantly worse. From about February to September this year peaking in July I had a very bad depressive episode. I think maybe i'm mixed state right now because I keep going from being ridiculously down to really energised, wanting to acquire lots of sloots and less down back to really down again. Haven't made it to the gym since before new years. Personally really enjoy the manic ones, theyre a bit reckless, but I feel great.

Yeah I always thought mania seemed like a lot of fun and manics just seem to have so much charisma get heaps of pussay etc

Would you prefer to just be normal no ups or downs, or are the ups worth it

Yeah I get laid a lot more when i'm manic in the beginning because i'm really outgoing and social and do stupid shit, but as it progresses I just kind of get aggressive and obsessive, which I think is very helpful with work sometimes. Would rather be normal, the depressive states get really out of hand sometimes. Just get a delusionaly pessimistic outlook on life, had some bad medical news last summer and I was convinced I was going to die imminently for ages.

On a lighter note i think my elbow stuff is related to bar work especially cgbp. Did db chest and shoulder work the last two days with no ill effects but cgbp felt bad.

I'm going to keep at it with dbs then take my vacation for a week and a half (or a week) starting jan 22 totally off and keep up the vitamin I to hopefully deal with this.

Now i remember why i swore off barbells for chest i last lifted....

Got some Active Release Therapy today for my shoulders and back. Felt a lot looser. Anyone has experiences with ART?

post #49736 of 57262
Yea ART is awesome. Gratson is good too
post #49737 of 57262

How does deep tissue massage compare to ART or Gratson? Does suffering through OMG level of pain worth it in terms of recovering form soft tissue injuries or should I just stick with ART and similar type of therapy? 

post #49738 of 57262

post #49739 of 57262

It's only legit ART if they hold down trigger points and put that area through range of motion. So deep tissue is just a harder back rub while ART they work out the kinks through putting the area through a range of motion. Gratson is done with little tools to break up tissue damage and restore range of motion in the area and speed up recovery. Deep tissue feels good but is pretty useless as far as changes in tissue quality, but if feels damn good and people get a lot out of that.

I've only had two sessions of Gratson. Sometime last year I had two workouts where I had terrible pain in my right knee at the bottom of my squat, was really worried and didn't want to fuck around so I went right to my chiro. Did two really painful gratson sessions and some electrotherapy in the area and I've never felt the pain again. Well worth my $75. I couldn't imagine having Gratson done on a rotator cuff or something like that, or even worse inside the armpit.
