Re: Tendonitis?

Nevermind. I didn't find any results when I searched before posting but now I see at the bottom of my thread suggested threads that are basically repeats of my questions/concerns with good...

Tendonitis?

Hi there. 46yo here injured my right arm a couple months ago after a hard row machine wod. After the class my elbow area was burning painfully for hours. I'd never had any issues like this before...

Re: What do you think of my current schedule?

That could be what I begin to experience too.. Because of that, I am keeping the sprinting to 8x30 second intervals with 1.5min rests.. On T and TH I do my intervals at lunch so I have as much...

What do you think of my current schedule?

The thing I am wondering about the most is the Power Clean aspect. I've been doing Lascek 70's big for a good while now (8 months minus a month or so from a surgery to remove my gall bladder) and...

Re: Leangains IF?

I haven't read the leangains material yet, but I read the ESE book, and one of the main motivators that has me trying ESE (24 hour fasts), is the claim that "your body begins to burn significantly...

Re: struggling to figure this out

Things are tighter everywhere. My shorts are tighter in the legs, butt, and waist... Waist has gotten to the point where I can't button them comfortably.. Shirts are pretty much tighter everywhere......

Re: struggling to figure this out

You are correct.. I didn't lose the fat I wanted to lose and didn't get the degree of body comp changes I was looking for.. Point taken.

Re: struggling to figure this out

No, I don't monitor exact amounts... I won't argue either, and will have to consider this, but I am eating the same way I ate for almost two years and didn't gain any weight.. I was a steady 180lbs...

Re: struggling to figure this out

Maybe M/W/F should be either rest days, or days that don't stress the legs? Maybe Fridays I do just bench press? But then that only leaves me Saturday and Sunday for the rest of the lifts... Is it ok...

Re: struggling to figure this out

@Brendan... You're right.. I was exaggerating about the weight.. I haven't been on the scale, but I doubt I am actually up to 200.. I just fear that.. I start to freak a bit because of the weight...

Re: struggling to figure this out

My conditioning right now is just the Frisbee two days a week and like I said, it's suffering. I used to do more conditioning on the weekends also, but I've been too wiped out lately..

The issue...

struggling to figure this out

Basically my goal is to improve at Ultimate Frisbee and be strong and fit. I'm old, fat and slow so I thought strength training would help me turn those last two factors around..

Re: An Effective, Yet Simple Strength and Conditioning Program

I'm just a relatively weak newb but I am already dealing with the consequences of prioritizing my weekly gains over keeping proper form, because I've aggravated my knee twice now (by doing partial...

Re: does this weight gain make sense?

Thanks Eric!



I actually don't feel slower.. I feel about the same.. I don't have quantifiable evidence one way or the other. I just know that I've gained 12 pounds of mostly fat since I started...

Re: does this weight gain make sense?

Thanks. I am not ready to curb the lifting so I will continue to try and trim the fat and maybe adjust the program to stretch out the lifts and add in some running wods as Brendan suggested..

Re: does this weight gain make sense?

As I replied to Brendan, I am 5'11" and 192. I have to assume that this 12lbs is mostly fat, as I am sure I didn't gain 12lbs of muscle in 7 weeks.. Nevertheless, I like the idea that perhaps my body...

Re: does this weight gain make sense?

Thanks for the replies...


That is correct.


My body fat is not low. Probably not even in the teens yet, though I haven't measured it other than a self test maybe six months ago... I would guess...

does this weight gain make sense?

I started doing the Lascek s&cp around the end of May... Since then, aside from a vacation, I've been making 5lb gains on almost every occasion..

I've also gained weight - about 12 pounds... That...

Re: knee pain question

Thanks Steven. Looking at that site, I'd say it might be the quadriceps tendon or patellar tendon. Not sure.. The thing that is most odd, is that it goes from being completely pain free to pretty...
