Re: Do you even lift, bro?

Over the course of about a week (6-8 days) I do 2 cardio sessions, almost always a 5k with a ski erg. I often do about 40-50 chin ups on those days, and sometimes dips. Four days of lifting. More or less like so: Log press/CGBP, box squat/RDL, axle bench press/incline press (dumbbells or axle), TBDL...

Re: Revenge of the Cyst

Monday 8/6 Been having trouble posting, let’s see if this works. Saw my surgeon last week. He wasn’t keen on removing the cyst again, and neither was I. So he aspirated it instead. The one I had last year was “maybe the bigger bakers cyst ever.” This time it was even bigger. He said not to worry abo...

I don’t know who said this, but I read it last time Schiff was on Rogan:

Re: BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD

Fuck me. MRI came back. It’s not a tear, it’s a return of my popliteal cyst. From the MRI: “Tendinosis of the distal semimembranosus tendon associated with semimembranosus bursitis containing loose bodies, and prominent osteophyte in the medial tibial plateau. Findings suggest old injury Large and e...

Re: BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD

Saturday 7/21
More rehabby shit. Definitely having less pain in the knee, but I think going back to physical therapy is probably a good idea (assuming the injury isn’t worse than I think).

Re: Attitude Adjustment

So, quick anatomy lesson: that was the quad tendon. My doc thinks it’s torn. Submitted for an MRI, and because I have good insurance and he has a good relationship with the imaging place he’s pretty sure I’ll be in this weekend and we can see exactly what’s going on. I’m thinking this injury was cau...

Re: Attitude Adjustment

While squatting Friday, I felt a pop at the knee like cracking a knuckle. The pain started 10 hours later. Shooting from the patellar tendon down into the knee cap when straightening my leg or standing from a seated (squat) position. Spoke with HVLN yesterday and called my doc today. I’m going in on...

Re: Two Trump Justices

When the power balance tips the other way, there will be arguments to immediately add 2-4 more Justices to the court My wife suggested that yesterday. I had no counterargument. It was a bad idea in 1937 and it’s a bad idea now. But these days, naked power grabs seem more acceptable all around.
