HGH-does it work? LucidDreams 1 20 daysLucidDreams (1): Im turniung 48 this month. My Dr chgecked my testostorone because of mood swings,low sex drive,irregular erections and little muscle gain. Its normal,77. He said testosterone shots wouldnt help. Would low does of HGH help with muscle gain? I dont want to look like the hulk,just get some muscle mass put on me. I know it would help the injuries of my back.Steroids scare me.
Right tricep everyday soreness. Help needed George1234 2 2 monthsDevley (1): Cold should always be after working out. Could be tendonitis. I know this thread is a little old. Any luck? I had elbow tendonitis and it really radiated up to my shoulder and even down to my wrist. Not the tricep area though. Look into BFST wrap. They stimulate the blood flow and great to use before a work out and also for injury recovery. http://kingbrand.com/BFST-Home.php?REF=34PV16.343
Best way to progress after surgery csizemore21 5 3 monthsSOLARSUPLEX (6211): @csizemore21 Ya know, from people i have seen i feel like once you build muscle and it "goes away" its much easier to gain back. No idea why. Its like you get noob gains all over again but since you know how to train the gains are incredible. I would work your calories down to maintenance and just eat there till the surgery and then just eat like a human. Don't think macros, follow what @wannabemusular said.

Recovery kezlar92 3 4 monthsJsn3004 (616): There has to be something different in your life, whether it be your training, diet, stress, etc. If everything is the same i'd try taking a few days or a week off. It couldn't hurt and can also be beneficial.
Car crash jbarr69 6 4 monthsRunner (16): Funny, i posted almost the same thing approx a year ago; which is about the lenght of time i could not walk let alone lift weights or exercise- i managed to maintain my weight of which i am grateful ; otherwise, i would have morphed into a hideous obese mass of self-pity and anger.
hamstring problem ajkin 3 4 monthsJsn3004 (616): I'd go to a doctor to get that checked out. Either way make sure that you are properly stretching and doing mobility work.

Changing nutrition and starting a routine Kind 10 5 monthsBeans (3745): @Kind all calculators will give a different value, what really matters is just picking one, trying it, and adjusting accordingly. They're all just guidelines, chances are most of them won't be spot on what you need. You CAN take into account lean body mass, but again, it doesn't necessarily mean it's more accurate. Plus, you're just adding an extra layer of guessing. Personally, I'd go with the lower end of your BMR calcs to start off since...

Road to recovery and first powerlifting meet Dbyrnes Jump to first page81Jump to last page 5 monthsDbyrnes (457): So I just signed up for another meet In February. I am not expecting to do much as far as a total goes. My back is still bothering me quite a bit. I just want to get my first meet out of way. The plans is to slowly going to build my squat back up, it's dropped about 100 pounds since this summer and my bench, which dropped about 50 pounds since this summer. I am not going to any deads till I am close to the meet just to figure what to open with.
Strain/torn Pec kozzletoff 8 6 monthskozzletoff (379): @SRorhrbac0808 okay I'll definitely try it out when I get home tomorrow. I'll take after you and be smart about it, thanks a ton and good luck with the rest of your recovery @_RudeCrew yeah I definitely don't wanna mess around with it anymore. Taking off sucks but at least I can still squat and deadlift. Hopefully when I see a doctor on Wednesday I can get more info
Patella pain when squatting kozzletoff 25 7 monthseknight (52885): @lauralovestolift there's no such thing as a VMO exercise though. There are quad exercises. They all work the VMO; they also all work the other three heads. It's incorrect to advise someone to attempt to work such a specific area of the quads. You either work them all or you don't, unless you're going to hook up Russian ESTIM while doing quad sets. Insofar as the knee valgus, the picture you linked demonstrates just that. You may not have...

Sacroiliac joint pain! SOLARSUPLEX 1 10 monthsSOLARSUPLEX (6211): Waddup guys. Just sharing what i have come up with in my quick reading of pain relief of the SI joint. I was trying to PR on deadlifts (failed 385lb) a few days ago and ever since i have had a strange pain in my tailbone area. Did some googling and came up with the SI joint. http://erikdalton.com/images/sisprainspasm_Fig1.jpg More or less the pain is more of an extreme tightness just below my lower back.

Quickest Way Rusty 7 11 monthsBeans (3745): What are your goals? If you want to bring up your squat, bench, and dead, then squat, bench, and dead. That program has a ton of cardio, which is fine, but it won't necessarily help you achieve upping your lifts.

Please help! Torn ACL! Need exercise advice dgevurtz 3 11 monthsDevley (1): Agreed, rest now and heal properly. I have heard many stories of re-injury and worse for ware after. Listen to the doctor and follow advise. Work your way back in slowly and always treat with cold after to avoid inflammation from building up. The knee has sch little blood flow to begin with, you do not want to obstruct that unnecessarily.
Shin splints forgottenpass 26 11 monthsDevley (1): Taping your shins helps, compression socks and cold after. This is a great article on dealing with them and what exercises will help. For runners but idea is the same. http://runnersconnect.net/running-injury-prevention/the-ultimate-guide-to-shin-splints-for-runners/ I also attached a link to a cold compression wrap. worth a look into. http://www.kingbrand.com/Leg-Ice-Packs-and-wraps.php?REF=34PV18
Nissen Fundoplication Surgery Recovery! ssjamos 3 1 yearssjamos (10): @mikew Thanks brother. Yeah, I do agree with you, however, I also do think additional ab work can help strengthen my core, benefitting my compound lifts in a positive way. Not so much sit ups/crunches, but moreso plank-type exercises that will allow me to carry/move more weight. But yeah, compound lifts are hella taxing to the core anyways so additional work isn't absolutely necessary :p
Routine modification due to back soreness queenquebec 1 1 yearqueenquebec (25): Alright so I've been following stronglifts on consistently for 7 weeks now and I've had lots of back pain. My form on squat/deadlifts are good, but I find my core is weak and need some attention. I also notice that, adding 5 pounds to the bar every sessions was over kill for me. From the info, I gather I should be focusing on goblet squats, plank/glute bridges, stiff leg deadlift and front squats, for a good 6 week to recover. I was...

Post Surgery - Minimize muscle loss DaveShredder 7 1 yearDaveShredder (1): Thanks for the advice. I ended up eating at maintenance and found no visible muscle or strength loss in my upper body. Because I couldn't walk at all for a good 1-2 weeks I found I lost quite a lot of size and strength in my legs. Hitting the gym after 2-3 weeks off was tough but I'm back at it, upper body is just about where I was pre-surgery. However my legs have some catching up to do.

Can you work out your maintenance calorie TDEE to understand how much you need to eat. Also start a food diary. On the training side the FAQ will show you some really good programs to follow. Log your progress and have fun. :) Oh btw I don't get what 'damaged metabolism' means.
Knee pain ThatTeenThatLifts 10 1 yeareknight (52885): Hopefully you don't squat this way. If so, it's either the root of your pain or contributing to it greatly.

Maintaining muscle mass while injured Rawsteel 3 1 yearRawsteel (913): I've been doing the plank and 2-3x10 Mckenzie extensions daily since it all happened (3 years ago) and i've also been doing reverse hypers (5x10 afternoon + 5x10 evening) the last 2 months (advice from Eknight). And my form is spot on in all my exercises, i did however squat to deep for a period of time which caused a nasty butt wink, so when my back allows me to squat i only go to parallel to avoid this (high bar).

I will also be icing the shoulder at least a few times a day, and also will be performing rehabilitative exercises such as rotations with bands to try and strengthen the rotator cuff muscles. Hopefully I will see an improvement in the impingement test within a weeks time with my continuation of this stuff.

Squat back pain Piggles 7 2 yearsPiggles (217): I've been SQ/DL'ing for about a 1.5 years, but recently took some time off to do an Ironman, now building back up my lifts. I think that during this time my hamstrings have tightened up a lot which is giving me trouble squatting. The back pain is generally the night after squatting, or the day after. It's not terrible pain, but severe tightness. It's on both sides at the bottom of my erector spinae muscles medial of the iliac crest.

Are bruises normal? almighty_she 25 3 yearsOptimusPrime (1257): @almighty_she Is it normal? Yes and no. It's more prevalent in women and is often directly correlated to anemia; in your case, probably an iron deficiency resulting from menstruation coupled with a vitamin deficiency. And if you have a high caffeine intake, that too could/would contribute. Take your vitamins, stay hydrated. I'd say 'don't sweat it', but you could always go get a blood test to zero in on the root causes.

Why yoga just isn't for bad b*tches like me. kaitjens Jump to first page62Jump to last page 3 yearskaitjens (1729): @AKK Personally, yoga is helping my back heal. I've always been really flexible, became more flexible when I was a cheerleader in high school. However, yoga isnt all i'm doing to help heal it. I can see his point, though, totally. But what he basically says is form is the only way to not injuring your back.

Core Strength/ Balance & Stability Exercises correra911 4 3 yearsJayatfc11 (274): @Mcarey covered most, but you wanna hit more inner core! Planks would be one, you need to engage the core all the time, Pilates 100s are brilliant if done right, kneeling upright on an exercises ball up nice and tall engaging core and then eventually stand on it. Bum lifts on exercies ball while holding a medicine ball works the core! These work for me and improve my posture so you have a solid base! May I suggest a class of Pilates a week!

Also, stopped going too much below 90 degrees on pressing excessive, found it put too much strain on my shoulder joints. So far, it hasn't bothered me and hopefully it stays that way! Definitely recommend giving those a try, if not, get it checked out by a Dr. Cheers

Shoulder injury! Does this help?! killer34 6 4 yearskiller34 (1): I booked a physio for next week. We will see what he says.
Anybody here familiar with toe injury's? Shezza94 28 4 yearskickinchicken (8281): That's because you're building up pressure in your legs and feet and the bruising means you have broken blood vessels so you're not allowing yourself to heal. It's like scratching off a scab. Can't say that I wouldn't be doing the same thing myself though. lol.
Deload during a cut Shezza94 2 4 yearsOhhLoLo (3393): You could do a deload week or maybe just a deload day for legs (because of your toe). Just listen to your body; if you take a deload week, make sure to get back into it and hit it hard the following week! If you built a solid physique doing heavy lifting, I don't see the need to change to lighter weights to "cut", that's pretty much all diet.

Invicible scars for dark spots on face ? andrianna 13 4 yearstarotale (433): lol did you mean to say invisible instead of invicible? I thought you were saying "invincible" at first, so I was going "wait, wat the faq he means like the invincible spiderman or something?" and then I saw that you probably meant to say invisible, so i hit my forehead. so if a scar is invisible, then apparently no one can see it, because it's invisible. i can't grasp the idea of this product.
Pinched Nerve asianpower 8 4 yearshaole (1908): I have had a pinched nerve in my neck a few times. I think it was caused by doing shrugs but I'm not sure.

I think they usually go away after about two weeks.
Forward Rolled Shoulder - Help? asianpower 4 4 yearsAKK (1998): i wouldnt go stretching your shoulder throw an extreme range a motion or any type of stretching that involves putting it through a ROM and holding it there, a static stretch I believe is the technical name. Go see a chiro, I think everyone would benefit a lot from seeing a chiropractor. I know I would and I might just go see one due to the fact my shoulders are a tad bit off level.

Sartorius Tendonitis Diaz 1 4 yearsDiaz (367): Hey I've been trynna get my squats up but lately I've been on this groin pain thing that's not necessarily getting worse but it's not helping me go up at all, so I went to the doc and they told me that I have tendonitis in my sartorius tendon, basically it's over-strained or whatever and I need some physio.. well here's the cool thing- I'm broke as tits and can't afford it so I'm doing a full out google search which I know may sound fucking...
PHAT Question pl8e 3 4 yearspl8e (163): Thanks mate. Injuries do suck. It seems that everytime you think you are starting to do well at the gym something happens to set you back, but I suppose you get that playing sport. Anyway, that's enough self pitty. Time to get back into lifting some serious weights... upper body only though.

I'm more motivated than ever, but are having some troubles with my program, because there's some exercises I'm not allowed to do in a long time. I'm planning on doing a 3split program, since I've got a lot of time atm. The problem is that I need alternate exercises for my legs, since I'm not allowed to either squat, legpress heavy or calf raises. And I'm also wondering if i need an...
Tailbone Injury 16 year old ionatan 3 4 yearsJLC (36): It can take some time. (Im a physiotherapist, or almost done) Its probably not sitting in the right spot. You can manipulate it back on its spot, but you have to stick your finger up a place not worth mentioning here, lols. You have to get it fixed by a osteopat.

Broke nose and working out? GymRatMatt 11 4 yearsAKK (1998): lifting heavy weights is going to cause extreme pressure throughout your nose. I mean when you squat you try to keep your belly full of air, which inevitably causes pressure in your face since you are not trying to lose any pressure you have built up on your descent http://www.realself.com/question/exercising-after-rhinoplasty that deals with nose surgery? gives you a good idea when it comes to a broken nose(maybe) Again your...

BEGINNER NEEDS HELP WT 350 LBS 6'1 HT zage3 10 4 yearsbrian12 (9492): I second this.. Sort out the diet, understand nutrition and keep learning about nutrition, and what makes a healthy balanced calorie restricted diet.. Add in some simple cardio (just walking, sports etc) to start with, then add in some weight training, and see how your body responds. And then increase training intensity from there. Good luck!
Stomach disease - preserving muscle mass adam82a 4 4 yearseknight (52885): In the long run, taking off a week to recover and heal isn't going to make a bit of difference. After you've been training 15-20 years, do you think you'll even remember taking a week off?? -EK

broken toe adam82a 2 4 yearsmikew (11061): I would read this - http://www.webmd.com/a-to-z-guides/broken-toe Then I would try to get my toe xrayed to determine if it is broken or not. At the very least I would try to get a referral to a orthopedic foot specialist, especially one that specializes in working with athletes. This person will properly diagnose your injury and tell you if/when it's safe to get back in the gym.

Busted Rib - Need ideas for workout pl8e 5 4 yearsBaiTu (3096): Maybe you should take a hike. Get out in nature. Breathe easy. It is a better workout than just being on the computer or watching tv. You're not going to lose so much strength that you won't be able to regain it and hiking gives your legs a decent workout.
Forced rest - sickness BaiTu 6 4 yearsBaiTu (3096): Yeah, there have been times when I've tried to sweat it out but these last few days have not been one of those times. I have gotten an unfortunately decent ab workout from coughing a few times.
Hand and Wrist help! salgslag 4 4 yearsbrian12 (9492): Buy a set of bodybuilding wrist straps Additionally you can use thin boxing straps which will give you wrist and hand support. I live in Korea, and many of the guys in gym do this. You must be sure to buy the thin boxing straps - otherwise you will lose too much mobility. Personally, I just use wrist straps when training heavy

Surgery recovery/nutrition+hand/finger excs. math 10 4 yearsmath (1): 86 kg., so about 189. Yea I have a very sensitive stomach too, if you can call it that. But I feel that it's improved a lot since I cutted sugar out of my diet and began eating more meals with less kcal each. My biggest improvement happened when i learned not to overeat at supper. And actually also when I improved my sleep rythm and got to bed at less shitty times.

You'll be back in the gym before you know it! ( i got really good at squats during the 3 months now their one of my favorite exercises haha!)

I've dealt with shoulder injuries before and they are not fun and can really drag down your other body parts workouts now and in the future. Shoulder injuries are nothing to be messed with!

Muscle Atrophy on one arm...HELP Mazz 9 4 yearsLittleDragon (486): This may sound a bit like bullshit but maybe consider meditation. Taking time out to concentrate on his left arm may help restore movement and control to the arm. Muscle memory is developed by repeatedly performing a movement. The brain controls skeletal muscle movement. By repeatedly performing a movement with control you use the frontal lobe of the cerebral cortex to concentrate on getting the movement right. Each movement fires the neurons...
