    Shoulder Rehab

    All in all everything felt good. Usually get some elbow stiffness when starting rows but non to speak of. The bicep cramping was also gone. Groin was tighter than normal though. I felt my shoulder a bit and it aches from all the rehab and stretching but not in a bad way. I have a few days left on the original bottle with the second on the way. Other than that nothing new and in this case, no news is good news


  2. Never seen anyone do Meadows Rows before. I feel like they'd kill my shoulders.

    I wouldn't sat they stress the shoulders any more so than regular wide single arm rows. The forearm bicep tie in is another story if you don;t use straps like myself.

    Body was aching a bit out of nowhere yesterday but seems to have subsided. Going to do legs in a bit so I will see if the groin issues have subsided

    The shoulder gets tucked or pulled down with the Lat flexing so it really doesn't affect them. I would definitely use straps though. It kills my forearm flexors at the elbow joint if I don't.

    I have finished my first bottle and on the second. I'm going to get to a computer tomorrow to log my last workouts and do a final review. Damn computer is still getting fixed.

    Luckily, my second bottle came before I finished my first one so there will be no drop off

  7. Final Review:

    I want to thank all the guys at Antaeus Labs for giving me this logging opportunity. This is my first AL product run and I was very impressed. Thanks again.

    I must say that overall I am very impressed with Achilles. Impressed enough to order a second bottle. Of probably the 15 different joint products I have tried, I have only reordered 3 of those products so that should say something. In fact, I was previously on a joint regimen that consisted of Animal Flex, SNS Cissus, and Joint Force. During the run, I dropped the flex and Cissus and did not skip a beat. In the past I could tell if I just missed one day of those products so I know that Achilles was pulling its weight.

    In just four weeks I was able to notice a fast acting, mild anti inflammatory effect, joints felt smoother and more lubed in the mornings even after nights out drinking, increased joint mobility, reduced pain/inflammation/popping in knees, elbows, etc. and reduced warm up time. My previously injured shoulder has continued to improve and make strides with reduced pain. My newly injured shoulder that occurred while on Achilles showed remarkable improvement at a rapid pace. Even my doctor was impressed at my progress. Not too shabby for a joint product in only 4 weeks considering most take much longer to notice any difference from.

    Overall, Achilles has joined Joint Force as my favorite joint products. I will continue to run it and possibly stack it with additional cissus after I log this next bottle. I would reccomend to anyone recovering from an injury, experiencing joint pain, or simply taking a preemptive measure for their joints.

    Final Score: 9/10

  8. Nice review CATD!

  9. nice assessment.

  10. Took a few days off with job hunting stuff. Taking off early to hit some arms and light chest/shoulder work so we will see how everything is holding up.

  11. Thank you very much for the honest review. It was a pleasure to follow along and I'm glad Achilles treated you well.

  12. Hope everyone has a great Christmas/New Years. Im not dead just been away slammed with stuff going on. I am about halfway through my second bottle of Achilles. Some interesting things have occurred. Recently, I have been fighting some knee and elbow pain. Im assuming being dehydrated quite often from holiday drinking, heavy squats for 8 weeks straight with a narrower stance, and heavy tricep extensions without my elbows being lubed and warmed up from pressing before are the culprits. I took a week off and it seems to have helped a great deal.

    Also, Shoulders and other joints are remarkably better and I have gotten to the point where I do not feel my shoulders at all when doing heavy back.

    Another interesting thing I might point out: I feel like since I have started Achilles my skin as been much much clearer. Anybody else experience this?

    Nothing right now but it's coming I'll pm you a link once it's up.. Glad to have you back..

  20. Some more Updates:

    Shoulders continue to make big strides. I was able to do bench and pull ups for the first time in months. Elbow pain has subsided. Knees are still off but hopefully getting better. Skin continues to remain clearer than normal

  21. awesome updates to hear (yet again)
    so you are ~ thru 2 bottles now?
    that's what i ran, second bottle was smooth sailing, just like the first
    i'm off now, and problem-free!

    Glad to hear it man. Yes I am almost done with my second bottle. Going to do a 3rd with some additional cissus to see if I can knock this thing out. Came up out of nowhere. I swear sometimes that if its not one thing, it's the other.

    Good news is I went a bit heavier on bench with just a little tightness and soreness but no pain. Elbows were great as well and they were giving me some fits

  23. Ok guys another update with some good news. I benched this week for the first time in months and had zero shoulder pain. I didn't go near as heavy as I would want just to be safe but I managed to knock out 185x20 so I was pleased under the circumstances. Also, I did pull ups for this first time with zero shoulder pain as well. They are showing remarkable improvement.

    Knees are showing some improvement as well. They were irritating me on squats so I stopped to let them heal some more. They still weren't as sore though and I did heavy leg presses with no problem. They Also feel even better today so that's good.

    I deadlifted for the first time since messing up my shoulder and smoked 500 no problem so happy with that and the lack of pain as well. 2nd bottle is done so time to order a 3rd!
