    Injury while on X-Gel


    This week started taking 4 x-gels on pre workout
    yesterday was shoulders day and instead of 4 XG i took 6
    when i was doing dumbbell military press, had a horrible pain behind my neck
    Today couldn't workout the pain was still there

    My question: should i stop taking X gels and get some NSAIDs? or can i continue taking X gel while doing such medication?
    I'm also taking Orange Triad.

    Stop ArA, heal and use NSAIDs, restart ArA when healed

    The above is my own opinion and does not reflect the opinion of PES

    I agree with the above as well. Doesn't sound like you've taken too much anyways, so most of your run will still be there for you when you're healed.

    Also think that.
    Maybe the reason was not enough warm-up.
    Already taking NSAID's with Orange Triad.
    Thanks

    Save the x-gels for when your better. Sorry to hear that mate. I would treat it with shoulder stabilization exercises now and forever. Aside from warm up, I like to do one arm rows (or any rows) before doing any shoulder or chest work. This has kept me in the game....

    Could be a pulled muscle as well.

    I'm guessing this.

    OP, better describe the injury. Something simple like a small pull and you could be back at it by the end of the week working out.

    Definitely want to limit inflammation if the injury is anything severe. I have elbow tendonitis and it usually isn't that bad except when I use ArA. I get such an amazing benefit from using ArA though so I always just take joint supplements like Orange Triad and Joint Help when using ArA. Although if I had a more severe issue I would probably not take it.

    Interesting, this makes me a little nervous to run the Xgels now, I have a couple bulging discs and my lower back seems to hurt a bit more just taking an AI...

    Might be best to avoid; aggravation and the pain associated are just not worth it.

    Best to avoid in this situation IMO.

    Alrighty will do, thanks for the heads up! The feedback on muscle growth while on them are amazing tho, maybe I'll give it a shot sometime down the line when my discs are not acting up so much.
