actually if its RROD, should be covered still. microsoft extended the warranty out to 3 years on em for that specific issue. so you still have 2 months left
09-22-2008, 09:26 PM
Yea like Easy said, Microsoft dropped insane money to fix the error (since it has like a 80-90% occurrence rate). Check online and you should be able to get a completely free fix (they ship you the box ~ took mine about 2.5 weeks to get back).

my elite never had problems at all, and the replacement for my launch unit (that I got maybe 6-8 months ago) has been perfect too
09-22-2008, 09:49 PM
Yea Elites missed the faulty production line of the original xboxs. How long after launch did you get your original 360?
**MASSIVE HIGHJACK"** apologies

original one was a launch day unit, I took the day off from work to be home to sign for it, I was one of the ebgames early preorders . from the first day it would RROD every time you turn it on. but sit and wait a minute or so for it to get warm, then power off and on again and it would be fine i didn't really need to replace it as it did work, but after I won the elite at a microsoft event (and theres another event coming up soon, i wouldnt mind a 3rd 360 ) i figured i could live without it for long enough for the replacement to do its round trip. I got a launch day wii too. no ps3 tho

wow Have you tried it again???
funny thing was mine did it like 4 or 5 times, I got scared turned it off right away and it went away and worked..... eventually it just stopped working altogether and the disc drive wouldnt read anything but would still power up.... I got mine in bout 4 months before my extended had gone up and it has since gone up so if it has any future problems im screwed.... BUT I heard they give it every update possible when you send it in and you get to hang onto your hard drive so you dont lose anything, best damn part.
Hopefully your still in the extended 3 year period.... if not go get a core system cheap and throw on your hard drive.
I tried going on this weekend only to find my membership ran up... hopefully I get some extra money soon

Had a pretty good back and bi workout.... but now my SI is hatin me. luckily Mother inl aw hooked me up with some nerve med, neurontin(spll?) wich is cool cause I hate taking nsaids with their blacking anabolism and whatnot.... trauma care to step in and tell me if taking a naprosin (naproxen sodium aka aleve ithink) will really hinder anabolism????
Also mowed lawns today for about 3.5 hours straight and that put a lot of pressure on my lower back BUT surprisingly it felt fine for a while after as if it was a therapeutic exercise.... Bent over rows and seated rows (i lean forward a lot on the extension) on the other hand have me in pain now.
So weighed in at 183.5 not bad, lets see if this continues(this could be a piss and a poop away from where I started though) and heres how the workout went.
Pull ups- 10
Iso hammer strength front lat
pull down-45(each side)x10, 70x20(alternating left right never full extension to keep constant pressure), 70x10(simultaneous again)
Seated rows- 90x10, 110x10, 140x6
Bent over DB rows- 35x10(left side then right), 35x10
Standing rows(Curl bar lifted to chin)- 45x10, 45x10
Hammer curls- 30x20(l/r alternating)
DB curls(held in front to mimic curl bar)- 25x10
not too bad like I said coulda been better, big thing to note though this was all done in 25 min!!!! Wife got home late from school (normally lets out 950) and my gym closes at 11... so I had to rush over to even get this in. this meant very little rest time between sets and I still felt I did fairly well and wasnt too gassed surprisingly from close sets.
Still no crazy feelings, had an alright pump(even in the chest, WTF) but I attribute this mostly to the p-slin as its typical with it.... just waiting for the "feelings" of this to kick in... and the never wanna stop in gym endurance... I love hittin it for 1.5 hours and going home with fuel in the tanks... I hope this does it for me.

Im sore.... REALLY F'IN SORE... mostly the lower back (my guess is combination of the mowing and all the rows) but my whole back is sore tight and feels slightly pumped.... I like it honestly but it has me stretching like crazy.
That is all.

Sadly I dont have insurance that would cover an MRI(unless it costs more then a $1000 then the state will take over payment 100%, anything less I pay 100%) but maybe this should be taken more seriously? herniated discs are no joke as my mother in law is having to deal with a severe one right now....
Do I need to worry about any lifts really hurting this? carrying heavy things? damn this is upsetting if its that serious.
09-23-2008, 09:56 PM
My advice is if you're already having some issues, it's best to have a thorough eval of structural lumbar components. Long term effects from repeated injury/aggravation can cause issues just in your daily activites of living in the end.
I would not be doing anything heavy at this point that may be putting direct stress/load on the lumbar region. Will you guys be getting medical insurance shortly?

so a military press would be inadvisable eh?
09-23-2008, 10:46 PM
As long as you're not going very heavy you should be ok, but i wouldn't risk anything that will place any significant load on the lumbar spine. Seated military press would be a better option with a 90 degree bench for back support. The key is to have added support for that region when stress to the area is potential.

Welp Ill just have to be extra careful... shoulders tonight....
I hate things that slow me down.... at least this one isnt too serious yet... just have to make sure not to make it worse.
09-23-2008, 10:59 PM
you think peptides would help in a situation like this? Or would this need something more serious if it is a disc impinging on a nerve, like surgery or physical therapy/chiropractor.

was a pretty good pretty strong workout... wondering if I was feeling some stirrings of extra help as inter set recovery was pretty good and was feeling the desire to continue hittin it upon completion... dunno will have to wait for one of my better days again (chest or back.... my faves) to really see if its makin a difference.
Weight is actually up to 184.5 ...... this is good.... also chest is lookin larger through the day, not exactly pumped just fuller, odd as I havnt hit chest for a few days, just back and bis yesterday..... maybe this is the start, maybe its a fluke and Ill crap a giant one tomorrow along with my "fullness" of the pecs. Not callin it till I hit +5lbs and/or am really "feeling" it, then all this can be considered stirrings of something bigger.
hopefully I can continue to lift as I have been regardless of my "injury" as right now its more of a nuisance and pain then a debilitating injury, still seem to have full ROM with all my exercises, hopefully it wont effect leg presses and Ill have to be omitting squats altogether as I am almost certain these will hurt me or at least inflame the nerve problem... not worth the increase in ass muscles, Ill stick to the press machine.

nothing to note today, decided Id take today off instead of going 3 in a row.... well I may go... got nothing else to do... just was hoping to make up a day in cals without spending too many.... well didnt do nothin but clean today, no hard labor.... Ahhhhh what do you guys think??? legs????
09-25-2008, 01:54 AM
yah im also runing prime for 8 weeks , but one thing i dont get is i have been adding weight to ALL of my lefts and i purpossly try to over train but i cant be sore the next day. no joke i really try hard and mix it up hella, im really tight the next day but not sore, also on the weekends i dont really FEEL prime but during the week when i lift super hard i really feel it. i also think that the more i lift the more i feel the hyped up effects! and now im strating to think that its not all hype
