    (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.

  11. 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

    btw-that's some good advice about stretching!!!! recovery is much improved with before/after stretching, not to mention avoiding injuries.

    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.

    Didn't go too hard again today, the lower back is a bit tender so didn't wanna do anything to aggravate it anymore, just kept it short. Monday will be a whole body workout, I will have to go light on squats and I'm going to try that back therapy routine(youtube vid posted) for a week and see how it works. I'm looking forward on how I do on Incline DB Presses, I'm aiming to tie my PR!(But weighing 28lbs lighter)

    Day 15 Thoughts
    Well I did better with incline DB press then I thought, I'm hoping to beat a PR next week. I went into my workout wanting to do a full body, but by the end of my incline DB press just from putting the DB's back I could feel my back wanting to give out, ugh very frustrating, also my bicep is still sore so I said screw it I'll do chest, shoulders, tri's. I iced my back a couple times tonight, my back is feeling very shakey and weak, I'm hoping I will be able to try and work it out tomorrow or wednesday depending how it feels, one thing I'm not liking is everytime it starts to bother me I get a weird tingles in the back of my legs:S


    Effects

    Mesomorph- wow really feels like it was my first night with stims, the energy was just crazy, I really have to make sure I get a leveled scoop, a kinda did a heaping scoop and damn you really don't need more then a level scoop, I may try and see how 3/4th of a scoop goes.

    Creatine Nitrate- Took 5 caps with Meso today and holy, I can't believe the pumps were even bigger then 4 caps, I really don't think you need 5 caps tho, I'll go back to 4 caps the next workout.

    Dermacrine LV- I have used the topical dermacrine and so far I'm liking the LV more, the last couple days Libido has gone up a lot, a couple zits popped up on the back, def feeling like there is some testosterone boosting going on

    Androhard- Well this was day 1, only thing I have noticed is an increase in anxiety, just an uneasy feeling, not sure if anyone else has noticed this while using Androhard, so I took a phenibut500 tonight.

  28. Looks like you managed a good workout overall anyway. I know what it's like trying to work around that back. Sucks! Keep working on it. I'll be interested in your Dermacrine LV vs. Topical by the end of this.

  29. Your stack looks awesome, Dermacarine + AH + Mesomorph + Creatine Nitrate
    You should be seeing some nice strength increases if your back can handle it

    Also, it looks like the days you take Mesomorph you lay off of the Plasmagen. Is that because Meso has a lot of the same ingredients? I know they both have BA, so the tingles woudl be out of this world
