    I posted about injuring my wrist a couple of weeks back. Having decided to give upper body a rest, I figured I could at least do leg presses since there's no wrist usage. I pulled my groin on my last set. That was 3 weeks ago.

    I'm finally feeling somewhat ok to head back into the gym. The rest did feel damn good tho.

    Had to go buy a shirt the other night, some gay assistant was helping and told me i was well built, probably the first comment of that nature i've ever had yeahhhh! Just need the womenz to be saying it now.

    I've accepted that i will have to dedicate some time to cutting now, i want to get bigger obviously but not fatter so i will have to cut to get a lean base again. I'm thinking maybe 10-12 weeks to drop 15lbs hopefully most of it will be fat but i've never cut before. Don't even know how much of a difference losing that little weight will make, i would need to lose 30lbs to be shredded but skinny. My thinking is if i lose a bit then bulk up slowly i should be able to stay above 185lbs but gradually build back up towards 200+ with much lower body fat. Don't think i could put up with being less than 180 ever again.

    Currently experiencing some hip flexor pain that results in lower back and ribcage pain as well. I think I brought this on from squatting without stretching properly, as well as sitting at a desk all damn day. Anyone here overcome something like this? Can't lift at all with this injury.

    The only thing that I found help was doing the hip abductor machine for 3-5 sets at the start of the workout. When my hip pain went away I stopped doing it, and a couple weeks later I tore the muscle again. Since then I've given up back squats entirely, bought a pair of olympic shoes, and now only front squat.

    I've hit a plateau around 12% bf. It's really demoralizing that 2 months ago I could cut at 3000 calories and now I'd have to drop to 1800 likely. Worth it?

    ^ sitting at a desk all day is going to give you some pretty bad hips. Maybe try to setup a standing section of your desk, i used a milk crate then set my laptop at that. This is when I had to work in an office, now that I solely work remote I stand all day. But switching from sitting to standing works really well, sitting is good cause it gets you out of extension for a bit.

    Do some band walks when you warm up. Ask Knucks, he knows more about hip rehab than me.

    Hmm right knee stiffens up regularly since I increased oly squat to 100kg and going for bball practice x2 a week. Been mobilizing, icing and taking gluco, has helped but still a slight nagging feel. What to do, don't wanna ended up with damaged knees, in my 6-7 years of competition never had acl injuries b4.

    P.s. It's usually top of the patella that feels funny. Tk can chime in?

    Oh yeah dunked a volleyball on Fri. Come @ me vertical gainz.

    So I like to refrain from giving specific medical advice without actually examining people, but I can tell you some generalities for your, um, education.

    ACL and MCL injuries usually don't happen without a specific injury. Patients typically come in saying they got hit or torqued funny and felt a pop and some pain. Generally, meniscus injuries occur the same way. Stiffness would be a rare presentation of either injury, as meniscus is usually painful and cruciate ligaments are usually decreased stability or feeling like your leg is giving out underneath you.

    "Stiffness" can mean a lot of different things depending on the person. If a guy comes in with actual decreased mobility and I feel greater resistance to flexion or extension, it's almost always a result of adhesions within the capsule which would be treated with arthoscopy, a very simple procedure.

    If a patient comes in saying they just have increased pain and soreness after exercise(which sort of sounds like what you're saying), its likely to be an inflammatory process. I would start them on NSAIDs and if it progresses or doesn't improve, would consider a steroid shot in the knee.

    When you say it's on top of the patella, what do you mean? Top as in closest to the skin or top as in closest to your head? The former would be suggestive of possible bony involvement, and the latter would make me think something more like quad tendinitis or something of that sort.

    Regardless, the answer is likely going to be ibuprofen + rest + ice and possibly steroids if it persists or progresses.
