My knee has been feeling well overall, but I am still getting some popping when going from 90į to 180į. Popping only occurs when I try to stand and my leg is at a weird angle, but feels internal. Because of that I have been continuing to take it easy on the leg. Today, in-lieu-of legs, I did a volume cardio day filled with a bunch of core work. Cycled for ~25mins, rowed for around 16mins (4000m), incline treadmill for 20 mins, and like I mentioned a ton of core work. Overall a solid day. Continuing to lean out from the holiday, will see how everything plays out over the next few months before the wedding!

Ended DL's with 365 x 4 tonight up here in the mountains while wearing a damn mask, a new pr. Feels great to be getting a stronger lower body, for far too long i only focused on upper.

JP10 I forget, has a medical professional told you the issue with your knee?

Do most of you squat in converse or vans or do you have weightlifting shoes? I need to break the habit of wearing my adidas running shoes on leg day.

No, I'm stubborn as a mule. I guess I could go have it looked at, but worst case they tell me I tore something. Not sure if I would do surgery anyway, and I'm pretty solid at knowing my body and understanding physical rehabilitation. It is definitely getting better as I do not have any pain like I had before. Just ever now and again I position it oddly and get a pop, not painful, but I can tell it shouldnt be doing that lol. If the recovery moves from progression to regression then I will have it looked at. In my opinion I'm on the right track thus far.

High-top converse were always my go-to squat shoes.

Bro have it looked at. I know you likely know your body but there may be specific exercises or rehabilitative stretches that can both fast track the recovery as well as strengthen an area (such as hamstrings) that you could practice more often to prevent further issues.

It took me a year to see a specialist for my sciatica - i couldn't sit down without extreme pain, let alone do a squat or deadlift (weightless). Now i'm able to dead and squat a decent amount and an on the road to
real strength. No way I'd have gotten to this point on my own. I tried bandaid approaches for a year before giving in and making an appointment, so i hear ya

A bit more than a mile in the pool today. Felt good. Deltoid is almost back to normal, thankfully. I have a lower lumbar disc that flares up now and then, and I had a recent flare up. So I need to take note as I swim to avoid aggravating the disc. It works, but I need to stay aware of it.

Anyone familiar with or have tried BPC-157, also sometimes referred to as the peptide that makes you heal like Wolverine? It’s apparently popular amongst high level athletes.

Familiar to an extent, know of those that have used it with good results. What are you trying to heal and what have you tried thus far in regards to healing/recovering that area?

Trying to get my piriformis muscles to settle down, and figure out why I have an impingement type pain between my right front delt and upper pec muscle that tends to cause radiating tightness to my neck and traps. Recently developed forearm pain in my left forearm as well. Thatís intermittent.

Iíve done extensive core work, mobility drills, strengthened my back, worked on my glutes; the issue seems to pass then just come right back to ground 0. Same thing happens with my impingement issue. The forearm thing tends to go away while Iím working out, but on back day during showering the the forearm muscle cramps up to hell anytime if I try using my left arm for scrubbing.

Iíd realllllyyyy like the piriformis thing to go away if anything. Itís a hinderance to pretty much everything else. Only time it went away completely since Iíve had it is when I went on a long ass hike in Hawaii. Incidentally, all the other tight areas like in my shoulder area went completely away the next morning. Same thing with the patellar femoral issues and plantar fasciitis in my feet.

Iíve read numerous anecdotal stories on forums while looking for answers where people who had things like chronic back pain, sciatica, piriformis syndrome, or overall tendon tightness throughout the body, etc say that they went on some 15-20 mile hike in the mountains or something and the next morning their body was like brand new. I canít seem to duplicate this even though Iíve experienced the same thing before.

15-20 minutes of specific stretches before getting out of bed and 15-20 minutes of specific stretches before bed (while in bed) for about 2 months, religiously, completely fixed my piriformis pain. After getting an MRI, it was shown that one of my lower back discs were bulging and it was triggering the pain. The pain was terrible, like a tooth ace but in my leg from below glute to down the toward my calf.

I also had pain in my forearm. I have stopped overtraining my biceps and forearms and I also make sure that when I am holding a dumbell or barbell or pullup bar, my thumb is wrapped around the bar, no more pain. Not sure if you by chance have any small children, but if you do, make sure that when you pick them up you are using your bicep, not your forearm. Same goes for holding them, use your bicep not your forearm.

I'll second florida's comment in regards to the stretching. I had to rehab my lower back for near 6 months when I had sciatic nerve pain, it was awful. Some days I struggled to tie my shoes. Mingwan what kind of shape are you in currently if you do not mind me asking? I tend to attempt everything possible before I move to a more drastic treatment, thus if maybe losing a few pounds could provide some relief I would do that as well as the stretching first and foremost. The right front delt/upper pec pain sounds like more of a mobility issue to me. I'll get forearm cramping as well, but I usually just chalk that up to hydration.

It is difficult to recommend BPC-157 without knowing all that you attempted so far. The good news is that it is not like it can drastically affect your hormones or something to that regard (unlike PEDs). It is known to help with anti-inflammation, as well as other great affects. So in my eyes (again not a recommendation), it is relatively safe and effective. Another item I can not speak to is in regards to lasting affects of using BPC-157. It may be like a bandaid to an extent, unfortunately my experience with it is quite limited. Again, know of guys that have used it and stated that they were recovering, but it is difficult to determine how much of that reaction was due to placebo.

Hit arms, back and a little shoulders today. The weather is going from warm to cold over night and has been zapping my energy a bit, but ended todays workout with sissy squats, and those are awesome.

It was cold as hell here this morning as well. Sissy squats are the shit, love doing them lol.

Yesterday was cardio and core for me. Today was chest day. Both days were solid! Not sure what I want to do as far as bulk or cut right now. I know I told myself I would cut, but I am also about 4 months from the wedding, so I do have some time. But I also want to run more, so maybe cutting now would be for the best.

Also Kashi cereal is bomb. Havent had it for a little while as it is usually a little expensive and I'm a cheap ass, decided to treat myself yesterday though and grabbed two boxes. I may have almost ate half of each box last night. It all happened so fast.

Isn't that the truth lmao. So far so good man. I have a fairly stressful job (I like that about my job to be honest), and the nicotine was an easy way to deal with that "problem" if you want to call it that. Before I knew it I was spending like $30/week on that shit. Looking forward to saving that money and being able to run long distance again lol. Throughout the "addiction" I knew it was a problem, just kept making excuses on when I was going to pursue quitting, but quitting was always the intension. And the way I look at it, the more people I tell, the more people will hold me to my resolution.

Oh yeah I am feeling the soy today for sure. I'm not going to deep dive into my bowel movements like UncleWede, but I will say that my intestines are quite pissed.

Why all the negativity around soy? Personally, it seems the easiest form of protein for me personally to assimilate


Plus, who doesn't like moobs????
