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.


My ART therapist was legit fursure. She told me she acutally incorporate ART, Chiro, and Gratson. She mainly did ART and Chiro on me today. Didn't feel much pain when she was working on my lower back but damn, I nearly cried when she was working on my right shoulder along the armpit and on the rotator cuff which it has a chronic injury. I'm going to see her next week. She prescribed me 2 days of rest and icing so no lifting until Friday. I wonder how much scar tissue would she had broke up just in 1 or 2 sessions?

Watch your feet. That's what is causing your pitch forward in conjunction with the rest of your body.

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....

Im in love with "close grip" dumbbell press. When your elbows are at your sides your hands want to be in a neutral grip. The torquing of a bar grip with shoulder width grip is no bueno.

That movement, dumping overhead tricep extensions and really fixing my flat BB bench form have been heaven for my shoulders/elbows/wrists. Only bar push work I do is stuff with a wide-ish grip, anything else fucks me up.

Realizing I have a entire commercial kitchen at my disposal at my bar since the kitchen is closed for the off season... I think i'm going to completely bulk cook my meals for the week. Anyone else do this? Does stuff like rice, turkey burgers, broccoli, chicken breast freeze well?
post #49747 of 57263
Yup, cooking in advance the only way to survive if you got a busy schedule. Lots of stuff freeze well or at least just stow it away in a fridge.

Also last night some wasted cougar told me I was hot and tried to climb over the bar to touch my nipples, when I wouldnt let her and told my bouncer to kick her out she started calling me "a harry potter lookin faggot."

I cook all my lunches in bulk

When we get a house I am probably going to cook lunches once a month instead of once a week and get a big ass lunchroom freezer.

Yeah, we've got a huge industrial freezer that's currently sitting empty as well. And a vitamix blender. It's bothering me now that the thought to do this has never crossed my mind before.

It's the only way to do it.  I know @conceptionist and @GraphicNovelty also bulk cook.  My food usually lasts 5-6 days so I skip the freezer and just refrigerate.  Grilling 5lbs chipotle marinated chicken tonight plus 8 cups cooked cilantro lime rice.

Fuckin a, we totally have an indoor grill too.

Also, can someone recommend a decently priced crockpot/slow cooker?

I'll see if I can get the recipe for pulled pork my dad uses for the slowcooker. Shit is fucking divine....

I always forget that I can do everything I want to with fucking dumbbells. I guess I'll try that next and leave the bar work for only bench and incline bench which is wide grip...

 

Any other good tricep movements? I can do rope pushdowns and db skull crushers (bar ones don't bother me but the bars at my gym are annoyingly set up).I guess I could do rope extensions with the cable pulling over my head.

I try to cook dinners that have 1-2 lunches worth of leftovers, so it's not exactly 'bulk' but I'm not packing sandwiches, either. However, every now and again I make a ton of jambalaya or something and it makes about ten lunches worth, so I freeze some and thaw it out whenever I don't have anything prepped.Rice freezes great; burgers and pasta/noodles not so much. I like burrito mix (ground turkey, veggies, beans, corn, rice if you feel like it, chile powder, cumin, onion) as a bulk dish too.
