I've about had it with my injuries and whatever the fuck else is wrong with me. To start:
1. My knees. I am going to get a video this week of some lighter weights and I need to make sure my form is still decent enough and not causing the pain. It's pissing me off because my knees don't bother me any other time like they used to (running up stairs two or three at a time, bodyweight squats etc.) but any time I put ANY weight on my back, I have sharp pains in both of them.
2. I think I strained my left pec benching a month or two back and it's still giving me issues right where it connects to my shoulder. What the hell can I do to help speed up recovery for this? I've taken weeks off from any chest movements and tried ice, but once I came back and starting working back up to over 300lbs in a 5x5 it started bothering me again. It's discomforting enough to where I stop because I'm afraid I'm actually going to tear something.
3. Not really something anyone here can help me with, but it's been the biggest issue I've had for the past year or so, and part of the reason I stopped posting. My motivation has been pretty low because I can't eat at all like I used to, I get full after a few bites of food, bloated, feel sick, etc. I think I have an umbilical hernia but I don't know if that could cause any of this or if it's something else. I had to find a new doctor because the last moron just kept taking my blood, then losing results or telling me he had no record of my last visits, but I haven't given the new one a call yet.
So this is just kind of a rant thread. My lifts have been stagnant for what seems to be forever, I can work back up to my old numbers and then something makes me stop to recover and it's a never ending cycle. I guess I should be happy they are what they are given all that's wrong with me at the moment.
Does anyone have any suggestions for the first two? I guess squatting suggestions will have to wait until I get a video up, but the chest is really annoying the shit out of me.
