How long did your cycle last, and how much muscle did you lose post-cycle?
10-18-2002 02:29 PM
It's onlt been a couple of wks (not even), I haven't lost any muscle size, but have lost lot's of water. Maybe even a little b/f. I'm down 4 lbs. I'm on my second bottle of 6-oxo. I started in my 7th wk of my cycle. I'm taking 6/day.
I don't think I'll be losing any muscle. I'm only taking 4 wks off before my next cycle. I can't wait to start again.

Rotator is bad. Justr do what the doctor says and you wil be over it. It is one of those injuries that can bother you forever if you don't fix it. Make sure to do all the little crappy exersises they tell you to do. THEY WORK.... Crappy to hear but you will survive to lift again. I know it. Talk to ya...

I had some shoulder problems back in May. I never saw a doctor but rotating my arm hurt, I couldn't put my arm behind my head. It would arch most of the day. My problems came from starting weight training late in life (37) and pushing my shoulders too hard during a cutting phase.
I started taking 3x1000mg Glucosamine Chondroitin Sulfate, 3x750mg of MSM and 3x1000mg of Shark Cartridge everyday for two months. I reduced shoulder and bench weights. No more behind the head presses or pulldowns. The pain and arches were gone after a month. I do rotator cuff warm ups before every workout now. I still take one of each of the above every day.
Push those leg days and maybe you can still do some isolated upper body.

bro im the god of shoulder injuries, i always push too hard especially when dieting and carbs are low, but you really need to take it easy, it ounce took my shoulder about 3 yrs to heel when i was younger cause i would never take it easy for a while, but age and knowledge has made me a lot wiser and now i know when my body needs a break, nothing can ruin a good workout run like a hurt shoulder, so i feel for ya bro, hope you make a speedy recovery....

I have/had rotator issues too. Sometimes after playing a lot of softball/football my right shoulder become painful to the point where I can throw better with my other arm. At times I feel pain while doing bench press or even barbell curls.

I used to play a lot of squash back in the day, and i had severe shoulder ligament impingement problems. Any activity (throwing, most racquet sports) that have a very fast deccelerating component make your shoulder joint very vulnerable and prone to injury.
I had dislocated my shoulder twice and sufferec from acute impingement of some of my shoulder ligaments. Physiotherapy really helps, but one thing that became my best friend after was "tubing."
The way tubing works is that it increases strength at end Range of Motion, making the joint less susceptible to repeated injuries and also strengthens the ligaments. See if you think about it, in weight training, the way lever arms work and the way weight are lifted, you usually lift less and slower at end ranges of motion. The lever arm is usually shorter and so the torque generated by a muscle is less.
Tubing, is opposite, because tension in the weight increases as the tube is stretched.
Also, after the injuries, i can do dumbell presses fine, but have a tough time doing military barbell presses, so i use the smith machine.
Remember, if you feel any pain doing any exercise, stop!!!!
Work yourself back slowly, very slowly, because reinjury will cost you more time and headaches.
If you want to know more details etc. just PM me
Good luck, its a hard way back to recovery, but you wil recover close to 100%.

Thanks for the replies bro's, but what happens to my upper body ( strength and size and firmness). Do I just watch it go to mush? Right now I'm doing legs, abs and lower back. Thats all I can do.
Thanks for all the advice,
11-21-2002 07:12 PM
I mean, doing legs will help your upper body, because compound exercises such as squats etc. illicit GH release and testosterone release in the body, which will benifit your upper body.
But if you are off long enough you will start seeing losses (2-3 weeks). You muscle will begin to atrophy slowly.
But the good thing is, when you do come back, you will regain your size fairly quickly because the neuromuscular adaptation has already occured.
Thats how it is with all injuries, just be patient.

looks great .my little brothers stuff works great.but it will get much better soon.

I just want to update u on my injury ( rotator cuff tendonitis). I went for 12 sessions od physio(ED). After the 12th session, my shoulder was almost pain free. I rested for 3 more days, then, after a total of 3 wks off, I returned to the gym. That was last Monday. I'm doing one muscle group per day, once a week. I'm now on my second week back, and everything seems ok. I felt a little pain after dumbell bench presses, but it didn't last.
Looks like I'm back for good ( barring any more injuries).
While I was off, I still did legs and lower back, so I continued taking my PH's. I've actually got more strength now in my upper body, and I'm a lot leaner. I lost about 8 lbs of b/f. My muscles stayed hard ( but not pumped). I'm definately starting to look cut. My cycle ends at the end of the year, so I'll post new pics then.
