Swanson52...Dropping 25+ Pounds

  1. I'll try it both ways and use the one that feels best. Either way the suggestions are fantastic.

    I need to rep someone else prior to repping you anymore.

  2. DE Lower...ouch!

    I skipped the jumps, as it REALLY aggravated my back, so on to-

    Cardio tonight.

    Back was a little sore from PT and stretching yesterday, so I continue to take it easy. I'm sticking with weights that are challenging yet manageable while protecting my back.

  3. 30 min elliptical @ 145+ HR, planks, stretching.

    Back starting to feel better; I go in for an MRI this morning, then I'll hammer cardio and stretching again later today.

    I'm really on a roll with nutrition right now too, which is encouraging. I'm taking prednisone so I continue to hang on to some water, but I should be shedding that pretty quickly after I'm done with the RX.

  5. Damn man, sorry to hear about your back injury. Are you just rehabing it for a period of time until it gets better, or do you need surgery to fix it? (I dont know much about hernias). Anyways, looks like you didn't quite drop your training, so stay safe and good luck with your lifts!

    Thank you sir.

    I'm just training around it pending the results of the MRI. I doubt I'll have to have surgery-it's feeling much better so I plan to just ease back into the heavy weight as I can tolerate it.

    I'm probably going to work some type of flexibility training in (yoga), and really focus on my core strength as well.

    No cardio today-I'm freakin carb depleted, tired, grouchy and hot. I've never been more ready to refeed in my life. No carb left behind tomorrow.

  8. The BSS are a great idea to keep the hips loose and to work the glute min/med.
    M.Ed. Ex Phys


  9. I didn't make it out of yesterday without refeeding. I started feeling hypoglycemic (badly), so I crammed my refeed in the last 8 hours of yesterday. Much better today.

    30 min fasted elliptical, planks, stretching.

    ME Upper tomorrow.

    30 min elliptical.

    Got my MRI results right after pt first thing today.

    T12/L1 to L4/L5 discs are ALL bulged, L5/S1 is herniated, with all of them showing signs of arthritis. Id be happy to email MRI results to someone that could suggest something; spine doc wants to do epidural injections to see if they can alleviate inflammation, and he's considering surgery on L5/S1.

    I'd like alternative as my options seem far more invasive than I'd like, considering I've had a 2 level fusion already.

    I don't give a ****, I'm going to keep training around it until I can't.
    Don't worry, man, someday I'ma be nobody too.

  11. Adding; started my AgeForce weight loss patch tonight. Should I start a new thread to log?
    Don't worry, man, someday I'ma be nobody too.

  12. Moving my log to the supplement log section. Please follow there if so inclined!

    Checking it out.

    Rough news on the discs. Did they at least recommend you a sports doctor/PT to see what can be done that way to address the issues?
