The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    One thing I've learned about pain at this age, it never leaves, just moves around. I always look at pain as weekness leaving the body.

    It gets better.The older you get the longer it takes to heal, especially if you don't get on top of it. ICE ICE ICE ibprophin very good friends. The hardest part is to back off some. I hate going down in weight, feels defeating. It will make you stronger.

    Nice back-to-back workouts! Smart of you to consider different ways to get those legs involved.

    Thanks. That 510 was a PR, 5lbs. Icing the elbow again, it's getting better.

    Nice work George! I checked out the Coan-Phillipi routine and it looks tough. There is a thread in here; (powerlifting section I think ) where someone had a question about it.

    It is a tough cycle, further research leads me to believe that anobolics are needed to complete. I'm too old to recover that fast. I'm just gonna go back to what works for me. Work on my technique and I do believe I have corrected a big issue.

    Hitting that 505 was so good. I think I finally got the leg and hips forward drive. My ass and hammys are pumped.

    You are sore in the right places and the weights increased significantly. Seems you did iron things out. Congratulations! I'm not able to recover nearly as quickly anymore either. After my last dead session I could barely move the rest of the day. I stretched for 40 minutes and soaked in Epsom salts for two nights. I certainly hope you do better after this monster effort.

    The morning after; outside of my calfs hurt, elbows hurt, lower back (lastnight activities contributed to that) traps and neck. It's all good, still feels great to bust the 500 mark. I have off most of the week so I could sleep in today. Sleep is the best thing for recovery.

    Shut it down. Since I figure out how to get my glutes and hammys into my rack pulls, they are pumped and feeling good. I'll see how this will translate to lower rack pulls.

    Big GM's. Should be interesting to see how much weight you do as you drop the settings.
