My knees look normal. No damage to the meniscus or cartilage. I suppose I've had a stubborn inflammation. Its better now after a month of less training, but the aches are not completely gone (if they will ever fully disappear). I also have some tight spots in the side of the hip and IT-band that might be related.

 

As for my low back I have damage in the area between the lowest disc and the pelvis. Signs of slipped disc but not severe enough for surgery. I've been prescribed lower weights and rehab.

 

Atm I'm not really sure what I'm gonna do with my training. Once you've had damage to the discs it sort of "sits" there, as far as I know, and I don't want to risk long term health. At least I can't do powerlifting for a while (heavy deads and benching seems to provoke the aching). I'll continue with the strength training, but it'll be lighter and less for a while now.

 

Discs can heal. You just need a damn good physio to get you there. And it takes time.

If the pain is really bad and you can't get through physio, then you might ask your doc for a cortisone shot. 


Like skeen said, back stuff is really not worth messing with. Take time to rehab it right and if you can't ever get back to training heavy, so be it. Chances are your lifting days aren't over.

The disc can go back in but the annulus fibrosis is weakened forever
Big risk the disc goes out again

And regardless it will get more degenerate every time you load it, the mechanics are altered.

Risk:reward is way too high to keep going

That's what happens when you get a bunch of geeks who suddenly decide after adolescence that they want to become physically robust

Phenotype is determined partly by genetics, partly by childhood activity/environment
Very difficult to change it in adulthood without drugs (or even with drugs if its bad enough)

Yeah do not fuck with your back, that is a lifetime of disability and pain you are risking I would give away squatting and deadlifting completely to be honest

Some people do not have the phenotype to lift heavy weights (including me) long term

For sure. I don't do that shit for precisely the same reason.

So it was just a video of the gym locker room?
post #55632 of 57266

goal is to work up to 4s in the deadlift within 3 months and 5 by the end of the year

 

physically feel as if i could pull 405 for 1 right now but do not want to subject my untrained ass (literally) and hamstrings to that abuse

lol8[1].gif I don't know what gym you go to, but mine does not feature hard-ons and hairy assholes.

I'm still chuckling from that Veni … that was pretty good.

I read a quote by a an elite soccer coach who said that most people who quit due to injuries when they go from amateur to pro do so because they don't have the capacity to handle the training load, and that they cannot change it at that point. Like most skills you develop that capacity early in life. The thing that bothers me now is that I trained very cautiously (for powerlifting, that is), with perfect technique, etc. I guess it was just too much. I could've held back more when I got the first signs.

Yes. I use the regular hyperextension every session.

I will probably focus on general athleticism and aesthetics for a while now.

Regular hyper != Reverse hyper

Total game changer for lower back issues... my chiro/ART guy said he's lost a few patients to the reverse hyper
