Re: Caged tiger progresses like a turtle

I am back after a long break. I doubt that I will be updating this often but feel the need to document a few things here as they may be of value to others. The context of all of this is to have the strength, flexibility, and endurance I need to live a high quality regular life. - It is better for me...

Military Press: 45x3; 95x1-3-2x3 DL: 45x3; 135x3; 225x3; 298x1-2-3x5 Notes: I dropped from 125lbs to 95lbs on the military press to ease my bicep tendon(s) back into it.

Re: Caged tiger progresses like a turtle

10-16-2016 I woke up in the morning with my right arm feeling great. However, I realized that I was still doing daily stuff like reaching for dishes on high shelves in a tentative way. This made me angry. In order to overcome my mindset of being hesitant I decided to go the gym and deadlift a bit. M...

Re: The Bicep Tendon Thread

I stopped doing anything that bothered my shoulders, and my bicep tendon issues slowly went away. No vertical rowing, no incline or overhead barbell work, no side lateral raises, etc. I think almost every issue of shoulder pain comes from scapular dysfunction. Interesting that eliminating overhead ...

The Bicep Tendon Thread

I have battled with my right bicep tendon for a couple of years now. My left one recently acted up too. Both had cortisone injections in the last 30 days and are 98% percent where I need them to be. I had never had a cortisone injection before and frankly I am amazed at the outcome. I hope in this t...

Re: Caged tiger progresses like a turtle

10-10-2016 -- skipped workout due to vacation. My right shoulder is annoying. I am going to get it looked at on Friday. I suspect a cortisone shot will be in order. It worked like a charm last time for my left shoulder -- after it hurt like hell for 16 hours of course. :-)

10-8-2016 Went to urgent care for a cough. It turned out to be bronchitis. Hooray for me. Z-pack etc. Of note is that before going to the urgent care I drank a large latte and my BP was 138/72 which has my diastolic 4 points below what it was last time (76) and 23 points below what it was in August ...

At what point does PT become the problem instead of the solution?

Re: Caged tiger progresses like a turtle

I missed one week due to a cold and then a cough.

My right shoulder is sore a bit. It's weird. It isn't a long-head bicep tendon. My PT is working with me on it.

I am going to repeat last week to be safe moving forward.

Re: Old Man Training

Beyond old man training can we discuss when the transitions take place from lifting emphasis to cardio or mobility etc and what the stimulus was that made folks realize it was time for a transition?
