post #53611 of 57263
I climbed for like 4 hrs today. I can see this being a pretty awesome thing to keep up with in med school.

It can be totally zen. And it's so freaking satisfying to be able to do things you were falling off a week ago.

Yup, I hear you and thought the same.

Since my program is built on training so often, weights that are much lighter feel pretty heavy in training. I'm almost never completely fresh/recovered when I squat, bench or deadlift.

For reference, most squat sessions the last two months have been working up to 2-5 sets of 2-3 reps around 220-240 pounds. The heaviest single I've done was 300, and that moved pretty slow in training. For deadlift I did that 400 pull last week and that felt like a max effort. At least I know I can go harder at the next meet.

Seeing that arch and how you get into position still freaks me out haha.

What accessories do you do to help your bench right now.

Thanks!

Yeah, I gotta warm up pretty good to get into that position. Its actually impossible to set up the arch with an empty bar. I need 135 lbs or so to be able to hold onto it and jam the upper back into the bench without the bar moving off the rack.

 

Last month has been a taper, so minimal amount of accessories. 

3 days a week I benched somewhat heavy. First rep is paused, the rest touch n go. 2-5 sets of 2-4 reps. This is done like competition style, so full arch and max width grip.

1 day a week I do a close grip or medium grip bench. 3-5 sets of 4-6 reps. Pretty light and fast. Less arching.

Every week I do standing alternating DP shoulder press. Light and for reps. Some weeks I also do standing military press for reps very light. 

Other accessories have been push ups variations and flat DB pressess with the feet up and no arch. These are 45 sets of 10-12 reps.

 

After every meet I go back to mass building training block. More accessories. Last time I also did incline bench, pin press, ring push ups, dips and a lot of DB flyes.

Your meet total will definitely go up a lot as you gain experience and get better at peaking for a meet.

I love eating like a maniac and waking up 5lbs lighter the next day.

Sure, but that is the way my program is written (I have a coach), so everything went exactly as it should have in training.

 

Meet day is where I can improve most, especially attempt selection. Often we have a guy from the club that choses the attempts for everyone, yells cues and such, but he wasn't there this time.

Has anyone here ever dealt with a Schlatter knee? Mine's been at the "slightly annoying" stage for years now. Tried physiotherapy but I don't feel like it's changed that much, so open to tips.

post #53618 of 57263
Assuming it's the same as Osgood Schlatters (sp?) I was diagnosed with it in both knees when I was 14 but have only had minor issues after I was about 22.
My understanding was that's a primarily a growth issue and once your body matures it's less of an issue.
I wear loose knee sleeves (loose so it gives warmth but not much support) on leg days and when I was in the peak of it playing competitive ball I had to ice it every day. I think GN has mentioned having it as well?

Have you seen an ortho surgeon for it? It should have resolved on its own, sometimes there is bony spur formation that may require surgery because the spur constantly irritates tendons.

How good were you about following RICE?
post #53620 of 57263

Yeah, it's Osgood Schlatter, got it in my right knee. It was really painful for a while when I was around 15, but now it's just been slightly irritating for a long time. But perhaps it'll go away in 2 years time if it's the same as you, that'd be nice.

 

@Beneseyed I haven't really done RICE that much, just did the rehab I was instructed to which was more foamrolling and slow eccentric squats. Lately I've been icing it a bit more though, as I've also torn my ACL in the same knee. Hope I won't need surgery, will probably see a physiotherapist whom I know is really good first (but also expensive).

Osgood schlatter+ACL tear here as well.

I found patellar bands/taping helps. The cheap like, $10 band you wrap around your patellar and put in that OS groove does a lot to keep it from hurting too bad.

Don't you have to have surgery on the ACL if you want it to heal? Ligaments/Tendons don't heal on their own

I used to tape right around the knee right below the knee cap, but then I ran out of tape and thought it'd be easier to buy a patellar strap. It doesn't really provide that much pressure and it's kind of big though, so I never used it much. Talked about it with my physiotherapist today actually and decided to buy some more tape and do it right below the knee as she advised against the straps.

Nope, surgery is only needed if you can't recover fully with rehabbing or if you play a lot sports like football, basket and such. For running and lifting weights you don't need an ACL.

Lol had OS 15-20 years ago. rotflmao.gif

Those jumpers knee straps sucks big time.

Was just saying if you want to be 100% you have to have surgery, but true for day to day it isn't really required.
