    Fuck. Just got out of the chiro, had something called the "Graston technique" on some bicep tendonisis. I've had a LOT of ART done in the past, first time I've had this done. I don't know which hurts/feels awesome more.
    It's basically a blunt straight razor that they shave your muscle with extremely hard.

    Now that I'm in a city that has access to all this stuff, I would have loved to do some martial arts stuff. I've always been interested in it, but it never quite worked out time-wise and my parents were against it because I wasn't very disciplined as a kid. Sounds funny cause it's the exact thing I should have been put into!

    I think boxing is the middle ground that would be back friendly-ish. I can't see BJJ or krav mega or grappling or any of that stuff being good for your back if you've already put a big dent in it...

    Every pair of Nikes I've ever owned was a 10 except the Romaleos. Had to get a 9.5

    Try Thai Chi. It looks back friendly.

    I will recommend Sheiko once again.
    My programming rests on the same principles and it has helped my technique a lot. Its def more catered towards powerlifting than 5/3/1, that's for sure.

    P/P/L for 3x a week training is not optimal, since it would only mean 1x a week frequency for the lifts and muscles. Twice or more is known to be more effective both for muscle growth and strength gains.

    Leg is bothering me today... Hopefully back is just a little annoyed from the traveling this weekend. I'm going to go light on the weights tonight and do a bunch of core stability work.

    I need to figure out how to get my hamstring flexibility up as well. It's awful. I might get another referral to PT from my surgeon to see if I can work on it there.

    RHET anyone want to let me know wtf a smart grid is? Interviewing at an energy company for a part time analyst job at an energy firm doing something with smart grids. Only 20 hours a week so it'll be nice to have some extra money whilst studying. Thank you quant degree from a target uni for giving me better part time career prospects then my friends with masters in English/History/Drama/Politics/Philosophy from non target unis.

    Anyone have experience getting sport massages or ART? I think I saw someone talk about it on here recently.

    I had a bilateral sports hernia 1.5 years ago and had surgery on each side. 15 years+ soccer will do that I guess. I actually feel better than ever and my ability improved a lot after surgery. During rehab my physical therapist used to massage my adductors/other parts of my groin and it really helped. Getting kinda tight lately even with exercise/stretching. Anyone ever do sports massage/ART and notice a benefit? I think I'm gonna give my PT a call and getting her opinion as we'll.

    be thankful you are mathematically inclined

    ART helped with my elbow tendinitis/osis/extensor and supinator being fucked. it was probably the single biggest thing driving my rehab; by no means was it the ultimate solution, but in conjunction with simple stuff like stretching, massage, nsaids + flossing etc. it did wonders.

    obviously i cannot go back in time and evaluate injury rehab without ART, but for some perspective, i bitched about not being able to lift because my elbow was fucked up for the better part of a year, did 8 weeks of ART 2x/week, and I'm back to 98%. still not lifting, but stupendous progress.

    This is just a part time job during uni a few days a week because I got used to my banking money and I don't want to stop spending like I currently am lol.



    Fucking yes rhet I sent my ex gf from when i was like 17 topless selfies out of the blue asking if she wanted some fuck and she does. Went for drinks last night and she's going to come over for some fuk on friday. That no contact for like 2 years then randomly sending nudes is clearly the way.

    Got my elbow sleeves and wrist wraps when I was home. Got to use them today. It was rad.

    Also brought up my straps for doing lunges...

    I was up to 60, but my grip gives out. I'm going to drop the weight down though. I think I was going too heavy and my form suffered.

    Should be able to do 40-50.

    How come you go so light?
