    Thanks for the reply.

    I was actually directed to the last physiotherapist by the staff at my gym, but he didn't seem to have worked with any athletes. I'll check if I can find a better obe.

    70 degrees was a bit exaggerated. I just tried to raise my arm by my side while keeping the core and upper back tight and I could get to 80 degrees. However, I can see a difference in how high my traps and shoulders sit. The injured (left) shoulder sort of point upwards and trap is tighter and sits higher. When I squat and do good mornings, I can't pull the left elbow as high up as the right I get tired in my left arm sooner. Sometimes by the last set, the arm gives in a bit causing me to lose upper back tightness.

    What sort of problems am I facing long term?

    No I think you should just hire a good coach and exactly what you are told for a year.

    edit: oh I see it was already aimed at you

    edit2: oh I see you've already discounted all the advice again

    When resting the bar on my traps, behind the head (squat/good morning set up), I can't pull my left elbow as high up as the right, leavin the angles of the arms different.

    Maybe I should keep the arms vertical to help keep chest up during squats? I read thr horizontal arms (elbows further up) makes it easier to keep upper back tight, but may be wrong.

    So I think I have a slipped rib, couldn't do anything involving my torso. Anyone have any suggestions? I'm planning on seeing a chiropractor for this.

    First bro-day since before I seriously started lifting: barbel curls, reverse curls, hammer curls, tricep extensions, leg press, leg curls, abductor machine, glute machine. I don't know how people do this stuff and not get bored. I didn't even count my reps for anything.

    Actually it is. Losing weight is easy compared to gorging constantly to support mass gain.

    Of course, anytime I say such a thing to most people, they want to punch me in my face. Just the other day, my girlfriend gave me an ugly look when I complained that stuffing down a pound of salmon, two loaded baked potatoes, a pound of asparagus, half-loaf of cheesy garlic bread, and a fistful of chocolate-covered peanut brittle was difficult. She's all like "You can just eat whatever you want, as much as you want; how is that difficult? Most people would love to have that problem!" It was hard to explain to her why, but then I was like "You know how you get bloated and cramps and uncomfortable during your period? Yea, think about doing that to yourself on purpose, every day, for a few months." Actually, that explanation didn't really improve the situation..... eh, whatever..... all in the name of performance!

    Shit you guys with high metabolic rates are lucky.

    Can't eat too much, bloated as f*** next morning and training session will stink.
