Joint pain CalisthenicStudent 2 2 yearsDorich (454): Tried MSM? Devil's claw is supposed to be good, too.
Bad pull? Or muscle tear Courtneyross52 2 2 yearsSalokin (877): It's hard to say exactly the cause of the injury. We're not in any position to diagnose. It would probably be best to get in to see your MD as soon as possible.
Is "bleeds" like this normal after workout? ZeposPowerbuilder 10 2 yearszomfroot1 (16): Rock Hard abs
Strange shoulder problem, scapula position Marcane 2 2 yearsWest165 (574): Could be atrophy of the serratus anterior. It looks like your acromions are popping out too, no idea why that could be. But I wouldn't take advice about this kind of stuff on here. Go see a doctor.

knee patellar tendon pain, while squatting. DFMaster240 20 5 yearsDFMaster240 (577): I think I had this surgery last year, a patella surgery of an extra piece. But it took me 2-3 months to be able to walk, then another few months of therapy, for me to be able to run.

Afraid of getting injured lolssons 8 6 yearsHighdeas (1635): I used to have the exact same problem where my inner left groin would hurt from squats. Decided to invest in a foam roller, also started stretching a lot more before squatting and now don't have that same pain

Burning feeling? Scotian 14 6 yearsScotian (9922): If my hips should be able to move like that guys I definitely have a flexibility issue.. I can barely move my legs into the positions he wants
Squats with belt Carfo 6 6 yearsThedude67 (3088): I try not to use a belt. If I can't lift it without feeling like I'm about to rip my back apart, I don't lift it...Just me...
Using lifting belt and weakening lower back? CodyTheClen 18 6 yearsIrishGymSheep (10554): Yeah so if your not strong enough you will injure yourself, so get stronger and do it without the belt.
Elbow pain In4gainZ 5 7 yearsVOLSAO (129): work on your forearm strength, seemed to help me out. Lay off from the skull crushers and close grip bench for a bit. When you go back, focus on form. It is incredibly important.
Tight Neck & Upper Trap Muscles from Liftin FiremanSi 7 7 yearsFiremanSi (42408): Yeah tennis ball plus some basics on Trigger Point therapy... Do better damage for me... Actually using a 5kg medicine ball in the same fashion as a foam roller is Unreal Lads !!
Im freaked out and think I may have a hernia G3NGHIS 28 7 yearsG3NGHIS (8532): No, Rohrbac you are a champ. You have the quads of a great ape and the heart of a champion.
conventional VS Sumo SRorhrbac0808 18 7 yearscassious (2926): Because my legs get used way more, I have troubles with conventional deadlifts my arms are too long. Im going to try snatch grip next time.

About to go into a semi depression Jelet 29 7 yearsSwayz87 (9039): FTW @OP Ya FINE SON!!! One make sure you actually warm up your fuggin shoulders before doing Chest/back/Shoulders. That mean 3 sets of 10 lateral raises and 10 front raises Profit

do u need to isolate rear delts? Popeye25 6 7 yearsPopeye25 (1692): well i do the same amount for each so not sure what to do.
back issue?? WaxyLizard 21 7 yearshurricane92 (3699): I have the same thing in my lower back, don't go to the doctors. It sounds stupid, but they're just going to bill you a bunch of money for like 5 visits, pump you full of drugs, and tell you how long you need to take off from the gym. Give it 6 weeks rest (no squats, deads, etc. Just upper back/body work), and you'll be good.
Skullcrusher elbow pain fix? MrMailliw 13 7 yearsskullay (4036): Yeah. I had the same problem with skull crushers. I just removed them from my routine and replaced them with something else. Sucks though. Theyre a great exercise for triceps.
Tendonitis sickrykes 8 7 yearssickrykes (1651): fuck this shit its not going away in a hurry cant even curl 7kg without pain loosing my shit!!!!!!!!
anyone ever have there back burn Jelet 2 7 yearsigg (2626): shit...i had this a while ago, well it wasn't burning but my left shoulder blade would have this really unpleasent feel, it was like when doctors inject the anti pain stuff in whatever area and you can't really feel anything but at the same time it feel horrible haha. Completely forgot about it but it's gone now.
Overstretched right bicep? ectomorph94 4 7 yearsEFJK (2316): I'd say wait it out. Maybe you just absolutely annihilated your biceps and it is just so fatigued that it's unable to flex at the moment? Not really sure, but 3 hours isn't enough time to really worry about it IMO
Really annoying WinnersNeverQuit 7 7 yearsWinnersNeverQuit (10311): I do tend to drive with my heels, and I squat bare foot

Plateauing Gains - SQUATS BossasaursRex 5 7 yearsChristf (2910): Stretch them out and then strengthen them through exercise. If you google "hip flexor stretching" it should put you on the right track
Injury Advice AustralianOak 7 7 yearsJLC (36): But why should he even try to do myfascial release, when he isnt educated?!
warming up/injury prevention etc... Popeye25 13 7 yearsseansm10 (906): im startin to hit the stationary upright bike( not those retarded chill back seated ones) for a good 5-10min before my lifting session, then do some do some rotator stuff on upper days, for lower il do really light quad extentions at the most, i usually just take it easy and do adequite warmup sets before going into my working sets popeye- i tried the matt ogus warmup as i saw it before as well, that felt like a trap workout and a half good...
Kroc Rows? BrettDaniels 10 7 yearsJusu (618): Need to get dat 225lbs dumbbell from somewhere... Or the bigger one mentioned in the article (300lbs).
Pain in abs after deadlifts haole 4 7 yearshaole (2109): I did try breathing differently too though. I normally hold my breath at the very beginning of the lift and exhale as I move the weight up but I tried holding my breath through the whole lift on a couple lifts to see how it felt and I think that's what did it. I'm gonna start doing some leg raises though
Do you guys go heavy on shoulders? DFMaster240 17 7 yearsDragonian (4951): yea that it but by not putting his elbow on a surface he is using his delts more than his rotator cuff you need to rest your elbow in a large surface like a flat bench and you go on your knees so your shoulders inline with the top of the bench. This way your rotator cuff is isolated more as your delt is relaxed
How to train shoulders, carefully? BossasaursRex 20 7 yearsWbauman (952): Thanks.. I have been doing db presses instead of bb because I can change the angle and not put as much stress on my shoulder.. I'm hoping that by strengthening my shoulders it will improve my bb flat bench.
How to keep your Shoulders healthy brian12 1 7 yearsbrian12 (9495): Following on from BossasaurusRex's post - I wanted to share a link with everyone (at the bottom) I have had shoulder problems all my life and torn a rotator cuff. However, since I've dropped the overhead lifting and all overhead heavy pressing, and focused on higher rep - shoulder shocker, I've seen the best gains of my life, and great shoulder health - and as a result increased bench press and faster recover periods for...
Hand and Wrist help! salgslag 4 7 yearsbrian12 (9495): 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
Exercise Induced Headaches? Lad_UK 6 7 yearsWinnersNeverQuit (10311): first time was as a newbie doing rear delt cable raises and twisting my body to try and get one one more rep out (stupid i know, bu, i was a newbie) and somethine went, and another time was doing shrugs (about a month later) and just strained far to hard (the weight wasn't moving but i carried on trying and my muscles just failed, the weight just dropped from the midpoint, and my head jerked forwards
bicep tendon issues from laterals Popeye25 10 7 yearsJusu (618): In my opinion doing isolation exercises to front delts is pretty unnecessary if you're doing heavy presses.
shoulder pain warrior 6 7 yearsIrishGymSheep (10554): Wouldn't you consider pullovers a really unnatural movement?
Stress Fracture? Parmley 8 7 yearsIrishGymSheep (10554):
Need help for training with slip disc likemilkonrice 8 7 yearsSRorhrbac0808 (47098): likemilkonrice- Bro I fucked up my back squatting. I took an entire week off to heal and rest.... If i went to the gym I would probably be out for months... Its either 1 week off (or maybe 2 or 3 for you) or you can kiss training away for 6 months - a year... Lift smart man and listen to your body... Don't you want to workout and get swoll for life? You may feel like you lost muscle mass when you take 2-3 weeks off but i bet money you will...
SOME BABY BACK BULL S***! SRorhrbac0808 3 7 yearsSRorhrbac0808 (47098): Thanks for the opinion brotha. Yeah, its been about 1 hour and a half since I worked out. My back feels pretty much fine. I am going to do every workout this week and take it easy and slow. I don't think it will further damage. Going to warm up before every session on treadmill and do some stretches next workout. If I play it smart ill come back stronger then ever hopefully. Just scary to go through any type of injury when you gotta be at your...
Weak joints! help, advice or experience? salgslag 5 7 yearssalgslag (1): Thank you for your answers - I´m really appreciating them even though it has been a long time since i answered. Like MikesTheGuy says; Drug is a temporary solution to my permanent problem so i´m quit sure that it isn´t the way to go. i´m currently thinking of buying a nice strong pair of workout gloves and a pair of wrist wraps (I have heard that Inzer or Titan is a great deal?). Im think it would help me a lot since the goal of my workout...
should i be doing... Dave18 5 7 yearsNeverbackdown19 (183): Definitely agree with sheep on this one. No one here can tel you whats good or not for your injury. If i had to tell you anything it would be that if it's bothering you that much that you're questioning bar dips, see a doc dude! 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! Get it checked out and...
Stretching Dragonian 14 7 yearshaole (2109): good advice here. You shouldnt static stretch before playing sports or lifting, kinetic stretches are better if you feel like you need to losen up a bit. Static stretching before exercises will hinder your performance levels by something like 5-15%. If you do want to increase flexibility you can do static stretching after workouts or at other times of the day. Pretty F'd up when I think back about all my old coaches that would make us stretch...
Fuucked shoulders Ares 10 7 yearswannabemuscular (33216): Strangely, the only thing I can do that doesn't flare up my bursitis is Overhead Barbell Press. Any time I try to incorporate upright rows or any type of lateral raise my shoulder starts hurting.
