I'm gonna start my own diet / workout program aimed for the skinny dudes that wana be big. You pay e $300. I mail you 7 large white t-shirts and a pair of sized up APC Rescues, that's your new wardrobe and it will shame you into filling out those clothes ASAP.
Ok, I'll play:
Doctors don't know much about lifting. Some know more than others, some are lifters themselves, some adjust know safe positions your body can be in. Without having someone who knows what the f is going on, you're prodding in the dark without doing any research yourself. Complaining about an injury with the intent of getting others input online is idiotic without providing picture, videos, and other details such as where the pain is, how it happened, how it felt , how it feels.
If you are keep on reinjuring something , that's not normal. It could be a shift when you pull, it could be muscle imbalance, it could be poor form.
We can't help you without seeing
Got some deep tissue work done in my pec / back area. I think i need to get an hour and 1/2 next time, 1 hour just aint cutting it. Feels good tho
Finally back to some heavier squatting yesterday.
Started off with 425 for two sets of 5.
435 next week and 445 the following, and so forth.
Only 14 weeks out from my next competition, so time to try to get my squat (and other lifts up big time).
It would be nice to total elite in the 198 raw's at this one.
540, 345, 590 would do it.
Aiming for 550, 350, 600 though.
Thanks. In general it's hard for me to get into spinal extension. Like if im on hands and knees my spine is nuetral or sometimes in flexion. Its gotten somewhat bettter recently as I've been working on loosening everything up and strengthening my glutes and hamstrings, which is why I'm so frustrated by this setback. I think i have poor muscle control/strength with respect to spinal extension (resisting spinal flexion), so I would guess I that I probably just went a little too heavy and was unable to keep my back nuetral.
The pain was extremely accute at the time of injury - I dropped the weight and immediately knew what I had done. It started aching right after and has basiclally remained a constant ache with acute shooting type pains when I catch it the wrong way. At first just standing and shifting my weight the wrong way would catch it, but it's gotten a bit better since thursday. Right now the easiest way to make it flare up is to flex either of my ankles upwards.
If anybody knows of someone in Seattle, (or knows somebody that might know somebody) that could help me I'd appreciate a recommendation.
john sent me my program. it looks brutal and fun
Saw some weird shit in the gym today. One guy turned up in a dress shirt and jeans and did loads of lateral raises. Two guys shared a bench to simultaneously do bent over DB rows, and one of the guys was rowing the DB so high that it went over his head. There is also a new set of rules which include the banning of chalk and discussing steroids on the premises.
One time I saw a guy running on the treadmill in saddle shoes.
If that's a problem for you I'd recommend Eco-Balls. They're an awesome chalk substitute used by rock climbers, though you might get in trouble with em because they look like chalk balls. I always "chalked up" with them in my gym bag when I used them.
Huge dude spotted me today on bench, despite repeatedly telling him not to touch the bar unless I clearly stalled, he assisted on each rep. I asked him how many I did before he started helping, he told me I did all of them on my own, something tells me I didnt go from being able to do 3 reps of 225 to 6 of 230 overnight. I think there must be some secret bro community where everyone assists everyone else on their reps but wont admit it, then they all feel super great about their lifts. Look over five minutes later and he is doing 1/8th ROM at 365lbs (clearly over his max), is this a real way to train?
yeah. it helps with lockout and cns conditioning for higher loads. although boards would be really helpful, but mainly its specialized neural training not muscular development

Stop deadlifting, thats your first step.
Deadlift to a step, to a box. Go as low as you can but don't go into flexion. From what you say "flexing either ankle" - sounds like a herniation/sciatica.
Look up Stuart McGill and his work.
give this a look
try out single leg deadlifts, single leg work, glute work, etc.
sounds like you need a huge body rehaul.
will whole milk take me out of keytosis?
If he's on juice it's pretty typical. The major juiceheads do the worst ROM imagineable.
