  1. We can rebuild him... Joint Mechanic Style. MST Sponsored Log


    The objective of this log will be to try out the new Joint Mechanic from MST and lift some heavy weights in the process.

    About me:

    Age: 24

    Weight: 250lbs

    Height: 6ft 2

    Current Supplements: Joint Mechanic

    Dosing: 6 caps per day. 3 morning/3 evening

    Training: 5/3/1 for Powerlifting

    PRs:
    Bench: 315x4, 355 x1
    Squat: (A2G in just a belt): 315x8, 425 x1
    Deadlift: 510x2, 550x1

    What I expect out of Joint Mechanic:

    I expect to get some help with my injured shoulder. I injured it a few weeks ago benching and it has prevented me from benching heavy ever since.

    What else hurts...
    Tendonitis in my elbow
    Minor case of arthritis in my hands (I'm a software engineer... 8+ hours on a computer every day)

    Hopefully Joint Mechanic can help me keep it together as I progress through 5/3/1 for Powerlifting and start making some gains.

    Feel free to ask any questions in the log and I'll try my best to answer them.

    Here is my current training log:

    I will be keeping both up to date as I progress.

  5. IN! I know what it's like to deal with joint issues! Used to take Universal (Animal) flex for rotator cuff during accutane.

    Hopefully this works out well for you. Any glucosamine or chronditron?

    Lift the fŁcking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

  14. Glad you finally got this man! Did they send you two bottles? I would run 6 caps a day for 2 weeks and then drop it to 3 caps. No need to blast through it so quickly.

    Good to have you! Which one did you read? The original book? I'm doing programs out of his third book, the one that is powerlifting specific.

  21. Friday night Military press

    Got to the gym... covered my left pec and shoulder in icy hot and spend 20 minutes doing all kinds of warm ups. I decided to proceed when I felt warmed up and things were feeling ok.

    Military press
    bar x20
    65 x10
    85 x10
    95 x3 (set 1)
    115 x3 (set 2)
    135 x3 + 5 extra reps
    Kept my grip closer than normal on these sets to put more pressure on my triceps and less on my shoulders.
    No real pain, just some aches after the set was over.
    Project Max: 168

    Seated db press
    Took these real light. Just to test them out.
    50's 4 sets of 10

    BW Dips
    Things weren't feeling too bad so I tried out some of these
    Tried to keep all the pressure on my tris again.
    3 sets of 10

    DB Side Raises super set with Bent Over Rear Delt Raises
    20's for 3 sets of 10

    Fat Bar Curls
    5 sets of 10 with 50lbs + bar weight.

    Post Workout: Spent some time stretching out my shoulder and pec. Applied some more icy hot and then drove home.

    Today, my shoulder feels tight. I'll be warming it up and stretching it out some more throughout the day.

    4 doses into Joint Mechanic now.

  22. 20 minutes of ice pack...20 minutes of heating pad.


    take it from an old guy who knows pain, lol.


    looking at ingredients in joint mechanic i suspect it will take a week to see results then gradually get better day by day, just my thoughts....

    After warming it up and icing it a few times this weekend and dosing 6 caps per day, it feels pretty good. I'll be benching tomorrow.

    Nice workout. I like the approach your taking with this, keeping everything warm and mobile!!

    What shoulder warm up are you doing? Have you tried the diesel crew one? Definitely helped me a ton when I was recovering from my rotator cuff injury

  27. I do the diesel crew warm up and a few other exercises... like shoulder dislocations and some arm circles and the standard rotator cuff things you see everyone do in the gym.For those of you that dont know...

    SFW and GFH

  28. Warm up looks intense. I do the posterior ones and front lateral raises. The scarecrow ones look very interesting.

  29. Skwat day.

    Very frustrating day today. Not happy at all with the results.

    Skwats
    135 x5
    135 x5
    225 x5
    245 x5 (1st set)
    285 x5 (2nd set)
    325 x5 +1 extra rep
    Estimated Max = 390lbs

    To be honest... my conditioning is terrible. 6 reps was easy, I was just gassed and couldn't go anymore. I had at least another 2 in me but I was just out of breath. More sled work is in my future.

    Leg Press
    4 plates per side
    5 sets of 10 reps
    1 min rest between sets.

    My lungs must be punished.

    Calf Raises
    3 sets of 10 reps

    The turf was tied up tonight so I decided to throw in 3 sets of barbell complexes for some conditioning work

    Complex was this:
    Stiff legged deadlifts x7
    BB Rows x7
    Cleans x7
    OHP x7
    Front Squat x7
    Good Mornings x7
    Squats x7

    did 3 sets with 65lbs. These sucked hardcore.

    Daily Video:



    Dosed 6 caps again today. No shoulder problems during the complex but it was light weight. Bench day tomorrow. I plan to put Joint Mechanic to work.

  35. Bench Night

    Ran through my shoulder warm ups

    Bench
    135 x10
    135 x10
    185 x5 (1st set... super light)
    225 x5 (2nd set... )
    255 x5 +5 extra reps (10 reps total)

    Project Max is 340.

    Pull ups
    3 sets of 5

    Incline DB Press
    75's 5 sets of 10 (probably going to bump this up to 80's next week)

    Chest supported Tbar Row
    2 plates 5 sets of 10

    Rope Pushdowns
    100 reps @ 90lbs. Just did as many as I could over and over until I hit 100 reps.

    Face Pulls
    100 reps @ 75lbs. Same story here.

    Conditioning...
    Prowler Pushes - 40 yards
    2 plates
    4 plates x3 (one was a sprint, the other two were just getting the weight there and back in a timely manner)

    Sled pulls
    Attach a sled with a harness and walk down the turf and back
    2 plates
    4 plates
    6 plates
    6 plates + my 250lb friend lol

    Daily Song:



    Overall not an impressive night, but its a work in progress. No pain during the benching until I got to the db work. Now it aches a bit. Icing it and working through it. Definitely noticing an improvement over last week though. Just have to keep reminding myself that slow and steady wins the race. It's going to be a while before I'm benching over 300 again but I feel that when I do get there, I'll have a much stronger base and will be able to do some damage.

    I may have to try this, I was happy at first with the AX athletes joint repair but it seems the effects are fading after a few bottles

  40. Have you ever incorporated band pulls in your training?
