  1. And what was the purpose of the bloodwork? What is your physician checking for?
  2. This is a solid article for RC repair Do all band work, very light. Everything should just be fatiguing or just mildly aching. Pick 3-4 strength ex's, stretch; do them 2 times daily, 3 sets of up to 10 reps. https://orthoinfo.aaos.org/en/recovery/rotator-cuff-and-shoulder-conditioning-program/
  3. Does your symptoms go into the inside of the elbow? What if you stretch your wrist back into extension? Does it hurt the forearm then? Do you get any pins and needles/asleep sensations when you grip? If so, is it the whole hand? specific digits (if thumb is the first digit?) If you just open and close your hand, do you get a trigger response where it just snaps? What do you do for work? Very labourous?
  4. not if you're only using your finger tips??
  5. the compounds above will help with recovery. Basic exercises are wrist curls with bands or like 3-5 lbs dumbbells, easy easy cable curls to pump blood. Avoiding long arm reach and grab moves. Heat and local massage.
  6. My turn to contribute: Both of us have been running their MK-677 - her at 12.5 mg a day, myself at 25 mg. Vivid dreams, increased hunger (which has now stabilized), and most important to me is significantly improved wellness and rested sleep I get. This is only been running for ONE week. We take our doses at night before bed. But the big thing is the wife is running their Enigma: Enigma (Caffeine 100mg, Vinpocetine 10mg, Huperzine A 100mcg, Yohimbine 3mg) (113.1mg/capsule, 50 capsules) Enigma is meant as a cognitive enhancement. This is not for gym use personally. This is for helping my wife study through her 3rd year in her registered nursing program. The compounds within Enigma (vinpocetine and huperzine A) have been established as memory and blood flow enhancers for patients with dementia. Most of my wife's troubles come in mid afternoon with burnout, as she travels 3 hours to york university for classes, and ends up back at home by 8:30 at night. Maximizing her studying time and having it as efficient as possible is what's needed. She's happy to report significant changes! The first was a boost in attentiveness, followed by a sense of euphoria. She sometimes feels like she's had too many coffees, but none of the jitters. She takes 2 tablets in the morning. She has having much more productive study times, and with two exams happening next wednesday, we're hoping it translates well to being more prepared.
  7. calcific tendonitis within the long head biceps is plausible any forward movement that causes pain is almost exclusively biceps. If you do band movement from internal to external and back to internal rotation, does that hurt? Does chest pressing hurt at the most down stretch position? if those two don't hurt, then I can all but guarantee it's long head biceps. Lots and lots of low grade band rehab repeating that movement helps flood blood to it. Avoiding long reach and loading movements helps. Keep palms up and in close if you have to lift things. If it's a constant throb add ice to it first, then proceed with heat. If it is calcific tendonitis, there's lots in physio that can be done to help break down the deposits, absorb back into the body, and reduce the overall inflamed tendon. If there are larger deposits, nothing short of shockwave therapy will help that (and that hurts like a bitch), if it does at all. Lots of people have calcium deposits have zero symptoms either, so it may or may not be correlational.
  8. I think you've got the safest bet. For all the 'excitement' this Olympia is supposed to bring, it seems pretty boring with already knowing who's going to win. I would LOVE Dex to win it. Just bring the same package from the last show and it'll be hard even for Brandon to beat him. Then Dex can finally retire. But honestly it'll probably be 1) Brandon 2) Roelly 3) Dex 4) doesn't matter after that
  9. they translate to big long hard sexy time!!
  10. 100 IU is a full ML, which would be a full plunger back if you had a 100 iu syringe. Each major line is 10 iu, each minor tick is 2 iu. So like goto 10 IU first day, then just do 5 iu the next week every day, then every other day until you get the tan you need, then go maintenance.
  11. Super happy about my order that came in with only one day shipping. Always always super fast and I dig the actual pill bottles now.
  12. So I've been on a constant 2000 IU dose for the last week (after seeing my endo last wednesday and said just keep a constant 2000 IU) I feel more improved wellness if I can use that term. Sexual dysfunction has improved, but I also started taking HCG with a 1000 IU shot 4 days ago. Going through a 5000 IU bottle now at 500 IU every 3.5 days.
  13. I've never tried primo, mainly because it's cost prohibitive in the amount required to get signficant benefit (along the lines of GH). But if it was a steroid i'd take primo or eq because of low sides Otherwise I would take low dose GH
  14. keep exercising and doing your physio steroids are not going to make whatever rotator cuff muscle is torn magically heal faster. It doesn't work that way. If anything, being on a huge cycle may make it worse as the contractile power of the muscle is so greater than the tendon strength you're at even greater risk of fully rupturing it. I did do a TB500 cycle (shown in a log), that helped my tennis elbow. Maybe think about that? Lightly work through your movements with pain levels not exceeding 3/10, as full a range as you can without compensation movements, 3-5 sets of 10-12 to fill it with blood. Rehab is a completely different beast than bodybuilding. If you want to lift proper again with reduced risk you need to take the necessary steps to doing things right, and then once back into lifting, adjust how the training was done (different ex's, weights, positions, etc) so you can be successful.
  15. So that pain is likely your sub scapularis muscle. Long head biceps irritation is always palpable and thickened in the groove it sits in. Subscap sits deep under that and mimics it. That hand behind back movement that's painful is pretty much the test for subscap. Your description of what doesn't hurt also eliminates supraspinatus and infraspinatus/teres minor. How to treat it? Obviously stay out of that range is one thing. Rep out internal rotation movements on the pullies at neutral position and up at 90 deg abduction as long as it's relatively pain free. No huge stretch loads from chest days. Heat as needed 2-3x a day to keep it warm and blood flowing to it.
