    BJ's in my top 3 favorite fighters. I'll always root for him. He looked like himself against Hughes, but even still, BJ has been an up & down fighter in recent years, as far as which version of BJ shows up.

    Day 9 Thoughts
    Well my workout today was so so, I was happy I'm not far away from my PR with DB rows, but after my last set of them my lower back started to get some pain, my lower back has been so weak in the last 2 months. I went light through the rest of the workout because of it, I'm gonna rest a day then try to do some lower back strengthening, I'm bumping the Dermacrinelv to 10ml a day now, hoping it will help build the lower back muscle as well.
    I'm gonna stick to back extensions and hyper exentions, I think deadlifts will just make it worse...

    Noticed effects- Pumps with Creatine Nitrate are still amazing, looking more full everyday.

    I'm gonna start posting music videos, not sure what everyones taste of music is but I'll post up what I've been listening to lately, hopefull you guys like

  10. i don't want you to mess yourself up-i would just like to see you on some kind of maintenance program until you get surgery and can go 100%. seen too many guys mess themselves up by pushing too hard with injuries.



    good luck my friend.

    Ya I havn't had the best of luck with my foot being messed up and now my lower back has been causing me trouble. The back is really sore today, I may need 2 days off before I try to work it out.

    you are over compensating. by keeping presure off your foot you are inadvertently putting more strain on back.


    be very selective of your routines. i wish celc5 still posted-he is a physical therapist and helped me with injuries in the past.

    No it's definitely not from my foot thats causing the back pain, a couple months ago I was doing bent over barbell rows and it pulled, after that it seems to just keep pulling.

    I stopped doing Bent Over BB Rows. The lift is awkward when you get heavy, and I felt like the injury risk outweighed the benefit.

  19. I re-aggravated my old slip disc injury to the point of being unable to walk for a couple days from bent over BB rows. Used to be my second favorite lift (behind deads).

    Ya it's really hard on the lower back and my back was weak to begin with from not working it enough. I was using 225 and on the 19th rep it pulled, prob not good that my upper back is a lot stronger then my lower back.

    (fingers crossed It only gets stronger and stops pulling)

    Did you ever try any of those rehab exercises I showed you? They will really help if you do them EVERY day. Ice that low back every night and keep something like mineral ice on it at all times. You'll smell like an old bastard but you'll feel better. Also, keep your hip flexors stretched and loose. It's amazing how much low back pain comes from those things. Hope you get it worked out bro!

    definetely agree with the connection between low back pain and tight hamstringts and hip flexors.

    I never tried mineral ice before where do I get this from?

    A trick I recently picked up is to fill a 2 liter bottle with water and freeze it and once frozen roll it on your calf and hamstring like you would a foam roller. I recently started doing this.

    I found the Joint Force was helping....but then I stopped, so looks like I will be adding that in again.

    You can mineral ice at any Walgreen's or CVS type of place. Maybe walmart too. Basically heavy menthol stuff. I like it at night and Skeletal Balm during the day. I don't find that skeletal balm is very effective on my low back though. Works great on my shoulders and elbows but the back is different.

    JD...try side twist floor stretches also. Put one foot on the floor with your knee up. Hook your other foot in front of it and put your opposite elbow behind that knee. Drop the foot to the floor and use the elbow to deepen the stretch. Breathe into it to go deeper.

    My favorite for the low back and hip flexors is a chair stretch. Cross your left foot over your right knee. With your back STRAIGHT lean forward. You'll feel it in your low back and hip flexor. Breathe deep into it and hold it for 60 seconds. Switch sides. I do these while I work. They really help.

    Try some Aleve in the short term also.

    Trying to picture this one and cant figure it out. Got a link to a pic or you tube video of it?

    I love that one too.. my hips are the worst so I constantly try and stretch them. Have you ever rolled with a lacross ball before. Try it out before doing this stretch.

    That first one is hard to describe...obviously. LOL. This is about as close as I can find to how I do it.




    I have done the ball thing. It's great for the flexors.

  31. Thanks guys I'm gonna have to try these ones!

    Wow so yesterday when I got to 140lbs dumbbell with my right arm I got 6 reps with good and strict form but lower back was a little aggravated so I didn't want to try it for the left side, but damn just from that 1 max set I can tell a huge muscle soreness (in a good way) difference in my right upper back and biceps lol. Only 1 set difference lol

    Hopefully my lower back strengthens up fast cause I really wanna try to get 170lbs for 5-6 reps on the 1 arm DB rows by the end of this stack. I wish I was as strong with db presses :@ lol, workin on it tho aha

    Back isn't feel near as sore today, I got a leg workout planned that will be light on the back but wanted to get everyones opinion on goodmornings for strengthening the back? Maybe even some stiff legged deadlifts?

    I'd go stiff legs over good mornings, that way if you get in a position where your back just doesn't feel right, with straight legs you can just let go of the weight, but with good mornings you're in a more complicated position.

    I agree. Good morning could put you in a bad spot if you get a "Twinge".

    Day 11 Thoughts
    Well I felt my back getting a bit irritated but it held in for what I did. I'm surprised but my legs feel sore as heck right now lol, I guess it's from not being able to really work them out so felt the burn of the higher reps. I hope with in a few weeks I can do the leg workouts I was doing before. I'll rest it up and start again Monday, I'm gonna change it up Monday, I'll do full body Mon, Wed, Fri and hopefully the lower back strengthens from it...

    Noticed effects- Phenibut 500 is pretty awesome, I never used any phenibut supplement before this log, it really mellows me out and puts me in a good mood, also get great sleep. I havn't tried more then 1 cap yet. Also Demracrine I found since bumping it up to 10ml a day vascularity has increased a bit.....and Libido is high!


    I'm gonna try this routine for a week and see how my back feels.
