Welcome to the cult of the self-injured. Its all downhill from here.
Feel like I've been really fortunate in the gym. Only injuries of late have come through reckless, unskilled third parties playing soccer.
My DL is back up and growing again. Saturday (which apparently is EVERYBODY's arm/chest day on the whole planet.... ) did a long set of 4x10x225 and then threw on an extra 50 lbs afterward. Pulled another 3 while fatigued. :feelsgoodman:
Hopefully the bench will start getting back up too. That's been my slowest recovery.
Sounds like what happened when i fractured both my elbows. If you find that its swelling and wont extend, it might well be a fracture.
I think the biggest thing with mobility work is strengthening the areas needed.
It seems that stretching doesn't do dick.
I think a good regiment would be to:
1. Break up adhesions
2. Strength training
This is based on my experience with trying to get thoracic mobility back. I've been doing all the foam rolling, stretching possible, but without strengthening in the new ranges, nothing stays.
Got my MRI results back in.. No tears in any tendons in my shoulder but I have a cysts in my rotator cuff. Guessing this would cause pain in my neck and weakness in my rotator cuff? I dont know.. i hate not knowing anything about this.. Getting referred to a orthopedic to get a steroid shot. Hope it helps?
Fixed my fucking hip flexor pain from squats/dls by doing the lazy vagina abductor machine 3 sets before my workout
worked for me as well
I like doing band side walks for that sorta hip stuff
I've used this one as well for help w/ tightness down thur.
Everybody in this thread is hurt these days. I'm afraid it might be contagious. If I get hurt any time soon, I'll know to blame you guys.
Started incorporating fascia stretching into my prog, really fucking hurts but it's been helping with recovery apparently.
Got messy with tracking cals/protein, this lean bulk turned into a pretty dirty one. Trying to tone it down and get back on track.
Started asking people for a spot on doing close grip bench to failure so I can push the shit out of myself, killed it on Saturday hyped to get to the gym tonight.
Edit: I scrolled back you mentioned a bulk before. Foggy memory.
We need to get some sort of sports medicine and rehab guy here I give us free medical advice. We can pay him in the expensive denim we keep growing out of.
Dat FST-7. As a natty lifter the limiting factor in your growth is the volume of your fascia, got to stretch that shit so your muscles bellies can grow.
made some greek-yogurt marinated shwarma. Cooked it in the George foreman grill. Greek yogurt and cucumbers instead of tzaziki sauce. Throw that shit on a whole wheat pita, add some lettuce, tomatoes, and onions.

Say what you will about Men's Health's bullshit workouts, their recipes are awesome.
